SOURCE: amp getting really hot

If depends on what the amp is rated to run. If it is only rated to run 2 ohms x2ch then it can only run 4 ohms x1ch. If you run it at 1 or 2 ohms that is too low, too much current, and it will get hot and eventually blow up under hard use. Some quality amps can live that way, and it depends on the sub and what frequency you are running it at. For normal use I would not recommend it. Wire to sub at 4 ohms x1 (or 2 ohms x2ch) for that amp if that is what it is supposed to be at, I'm not sure from your description. Also enhance cooling of the amp if you can, I run fans on mine if they have a heat issue. Warm is one thing, hot is another and not good for amp.

SOURCE: humming noise in amp

You must break it down through a process of eliminating items. With the system running unplug the RCAs from the amp. Do you still hear the noise? Try turning the gain down on the amp a bit and increasing the subwoofer level on the head unit instead. Make sure you have a low pass crossover set (probably below 80Hz).
Does the noise change with engine RPM?
Try a different RCA cable. I find that most times noise filters will make the problem worse not better. If none of the above things work, check that the grounds within the car are good, battery to frame, to engine block and chassis. Sometimes a bad vehicle ground is the cause. If all else fails, hook it up to someone else's system and see how it works.

SOURCE: Settings for a Sony Xplod 1200 watt amp, with two 12 inch subs

What kind of subs are you running? Meaning what brand, what are the ohm, spl and wattage? I'll look up your amp while you get that info to me. Looking forward to helping you:) Thanks!

SOURCE: I Have a Sony Xplod 800 watt amp and 2 12 inch Sony Xplod subs

You should definately bridge them. Firstly, lay the 2 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the next speaker(+). Take the last(-) and connect to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.

I have 2 2 ohm dvc alpine type r 12 inch subs. Each voice coil on both subs reads 2.5 on ohm meter. I need wireing diagram to hook up to a boss 2500 class a/b amp at 2 ohm


To have 2x 2 ohm subs wired up, they either need to be wired in series or in parallel. In series, they will total as a 4 ohm load to the amp (or 5 ohms if 2.5 each) and in parallel, they will be 1 ohm (may be closer 1.25 ohms I think).
If this is a mono block (single channel) amp, I can't see that you will be able to wire them for a 2 ohm loan. You may have to wire them in series to be a 4/5 ohm total as the amp probably won't be 1/1.25 ohm stable.

I have 2 DB drive 10 subs dvc 4ohm each VC (pt10d4) my amp is mono block 1ohm 3200 watts how to hook up series or parallel?


parallel is all positives (Red+) to all + and then keep all the negative's (Black -) together hooking them to the amp. if you dont have the big 3 upgrade (extra battery thick wire 0-4 AWG wire and an extra battery) keep it to 2 or 4 ohms and google impedance calculator and go from there. also just because your amp is 1 ohm stable doesn't mean it won't break it at 1 ohm and cranked up all the way

3 subs in 2 box 1 1200 watt Sony explode amp


Most sony amps run at 4 ohms mono. There is no way possible to get your subs even close to that. you need to either remove a sub from the equation or get a 1ohm stable amp.

Can my la590 American legacy 2 series 800 watt handle Boss CX122 Chaos Exxtreme 12-Inch Subwoofer 4-Ohm Voice Coils??


It is only stable to 4 ohm mono(which is 400 watts RMS or a bit less not the max rating of 800 watts which is a PMPO rating).

Your Sub would have to be wired in series(8 ohm final load, if you wire it in parallel 2 ohm-you will fry that amp).

I have a boss rt645 2ch 1400 watt amp would this amp properly push a pair of 12 inch mtx terminators.


That all depends on the wattage of the subs. also the independance of the subs. If your amp is 1400 watt, maximum you want is 2 600watt subs. if your subs are higher you will blow your amp eventually as your amp isnt powerful enough to pump out to that level.You should never have your amp fully turned up to max, 80% is perfect and will not make your amp blow. Hense why you want your subs less than the max output of your amp.

I have two sony xplod 12" speakers wich can hold


You only gave us the model of the amp so I will make an assumption that your 12" subs are the Sony XS-GTX120LW. First, they cannot hold 1200 watts a piece. They are meant to be powered with 350 watts RMS. They will hold 1200 watts peak. That means that 1200 watts for a few seconds will be ok. Past that and kiss them goodbye!

Next you indicated that bridged the amp. Since the subs are both 4 ohm single voice coils did you wire them in series or parallel?

It sounds to me like you wired them in parallel resulting in the amp seeing a 2 ohm load. The amp you referenced is only stable when bridged at 4 ohms.

Has the amp begun working again once it cooled down? If not you could have fried the outputs by having the resistance too low.

Why does the hifonics bxi1608d 1600 watt super D-class mono have 2 postive terminals and two negative terminals? would that cause my speakers to blow?


That is still a single channel cass D amp. Each (-) and each (+) terminal are connected so its actually like only having one. This is so you can hook speakers up in a series circuit to lower impedance, because this amp is 1ohm stable. What causes your speakers to blow is too much power. What kind of speakers are you running? This hifonics amp is very powerful, they are getting big in the competition industries beacuse they put our true power for less money and they are tough. That 1600 amp you have may be putting out more like 1800 watts at 14.4 volts which is 900 per sub at 1ohm so be careful this amp has tons of power and its true rated its not like a sony or rocksford or kenwood that says 1800 max and then in small writing it says 500 rms. This amp puts out true. I have 3 hifonics amps and love them.

AMP shuts off


your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help

well it is getting hot due to the amp drawing and pushing alot of current. try getting lower gage wiring for power to the amp and lower gage speaker wire.

Unsureness of wiring configurations.


Mamola,

Get an amp with at least 200 Watts RMS. The RMS value is what is important about driving Subs. This could be proclaimed to be a 1000 Watt amp. REad the RMS value.

Wiring. It is better to series your Speakers to give them and your amp more reliability,

Get a Mono or Bridgeable amp. If it si bridgeable, BRidge the output as described in the manual you get. Some Amps have a diagram right on the output..

AMP+ to Sub1 +
Sub1 - to Sub2 +
Sub2 - to Amp -

Get a 4 Guage wring kit. Run your power wiring down the Drivers side, and Audio signal wiring down the Passenger side, keep the two separate.
