SOURCE: My amp is not putting out all the watts

sorry to tale you, but my opinion SONY just SUCKS... as you can tell. Might wanna upgrade your amp. I have had no luck with sony. Try audiobahn, mmat, ppi, mcintosh, zappco, orion, rockford. THESE are a lot better amp to go with by far. But thier is a lot better brands out thier that just knocks sony in the dirt. my favorite happens to be the audiobahn A2300HCX aka cheater amp. NICE AMPS. it also depends on what kind of subs you got to

SOURCE: What is the best way to wire four 6" 55 watt

My advice would be to connect the front speakers and the sub woofer to the amplifier and run the remaining rear 2 speakers from the headunit. This way you dont stress the amplifier to run on two different loads at the same time and still maintane control over your system. Bridge your sub woofer on chanel 3&4 and do not forget to set the LPF for chanel 3&4. If your speakers are not components in the front set the HPF on chanel 1&2 to roughly 60 to 80 Htz.

I've bought a pyramid crystal 1000 watt 2 channel amplifier used it states it runs at 4 ohms can I run it at 2 or 1 ohms and if so what will the wattage be?


Not to disappoint you too much, but the 1000 watts advertised is just marketing hype. If your amp is the PB781X, it should have only a single 15A fuse on it. Your battery provides 12.5 volts when the engine is off, so at most, your amp draws 187.5 watts of power. Draws, not outputs. No amp is 100% efficient due to heat. When your engine is running, assuming your alternator outputs 14.4 volts, your amp's maximum power draw is about 216 watts. Again, this is what your amp draws, not what it puts out. What you should focus on is the RMS (continuous) output, not Max or PMPO. Those numbers are useless, unfortunately.
Your amp is rated to output 50 watts per channel at 4 Ohms, and 75 watts per channel at 2 ohms. This is when wiring your channels separately, not bridged. I did not see true power specs for your amp while bridged, but it's possible you'll just get the full 150 watts to the single bridged output. Do not attempt to apply a 1 ohm load to your amplifier, as you will run the risk of damaging it. It's not designed to handle a 1 ohm load. If you're lucky, you'll blow a fuse before the amp is damaged, but either way, there is nothing to be gained by attempting it.

I have Sony xm-2165gtx amp 165 watt rms x 2 at 4 ohm 200 watt x 2 at 2 ohm 400 watt x 1 bridge output at 4 ohm stereo or bridge mono output 4 ohm stable in bridge mode this mean can't go lower then 4 ohm...


You can't bridge that amp onto a load lower than 4 ohms. So you can't bridge that amp onto two 4 ohm subs. To get the most power out of your subs is easy. Run one channel to one sub and the other channel to the other sub. 165 watts RMS is plenty for most subs.

Amp comes on running 2 12" 450 watt pioneer subs, volume only seems to be about half output, with speakers bridged


This could be the reason. If you look at the specs for this amp you will see that the continuous power out is rated for 380W bridged. The speakers rated at 450W should be able to handle close to 315W continuous. Now if you split these numbers being you have bridged these speakers, you drive each one up to about 190W continuous. The speakers are being driven approximately by 60% of the rated capability. I personally like to keep it right where you got it, not exceeding 80% of the speakers rated capacity.

Here are the specs for the AMP:
  • Specifications
  • Peak Music Power 760 Watts
  • Number of Channels 2
  • Load Impedance Capability 2~8 Ohm (Stereo), 4~8 Ohm (Bridged)
  • Continuous Power (4 ohm) 125W x 2
  • Continuous Power (2 ohm) 190W x 2
  • Continuous Power Bridged (4 ohm) 380W x 1
  • Frequency Response 10Hz ~ 50kHz
  • Total Harmonic Distortion 0.008%
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio 100dB
  • Dimensions 12" x 2-3/8" x 12-3/4"
  • Features
  • Bridgeable
  • Channel # Capability 1/2/3
  • PWM Regulated MOSFET Power Supply
  • Screw-Type Speaker Terminals
  • Balanced Isolator Input Circuit
  • RCA Inputs 2 Channel
  • Input Level Control Hi-Volt (200mV ~ 6.5v)
  • Built-in Crossover Selectable LPF (80Hz, -12dB/Oct.)

    I have the bose 901 wallnut sceries i have yet to find a conpatible reciver to run them


    For stereo audio only: Any powerful receiver with at least one Tape Monitor loop will work. No other speakers types (excpet 901 -1 or -2) will be supported by the receiver running the 901's. 901 series 1's are very power hungry so figure on 150 REAL watts per channel and clean.

    For multichannel audio and the 901's as the front speakers: Any AV Receiver with a set of Preamp Outputs for Front L and R; AND a separate HIGH-powered amplifier to drive the 901's ONLY.

    Is it bridgeable


    yes you can bridge this amp to one channel
    here are the specs for the amp
  • stereo or bridged mono output
  • Tri-way capable (Tri-Way crossover required)
  • 100 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
  • 200 watts x 1 in bridged mode
  • requires 10-gauge power and ground leads — wiring and hardware not included with amplifier
  • PWM MOSFET switching power supply
  • Intelligent Surface Mount Technology for cleaner sound and greater reliability
  • selectable 85 Hz high-pass/low-pass crossovers, 18 dB/octave
  • preamp outputs
  • speaker-level inputs with SmartEngage (turns the amp on when it detects signal from the receiver, eliminating the need for a separate turn-on lead from your receiver)
  • 9-3/4"W x 2-1/8"H x 9-3/4"D

    Latest model surround receiver for bose 901 speakers VI


    I can think of no reason any amp pushing 120 watts would not work with 901-VI's. They're very efficent and will probably play louder and cleaner than you would ever need. As I recall, my old series IV's have no maximum amplifier rating specified, but I did blow up a bridged Carver M-400 Cube (pushing 400 watts to one speaker with a DVD-Audio of Yes - Fragile cranked dangerously high) with them. I'm convinced my speakers are indestructible in any home application.

    Keep in mind that whatever you decide to use as your control/amplifier section, a pair of 901's need a dedicated stereo amplifier. I suspect you're thinking surround sound so a receiver with separable preamp/amp channels, due to the Activbe EQ, would be needed and as far as I know they don't exist. A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds.

    Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. 120 clean watts is good. I'm using only 110W for mine.

    A Carver M-200 is a fine, efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W).
