Question about Sony XM-2150GSX Car Audio Amplifier
I have a 2000 BMW 740i. I recently bought a sony xplod sub and amp. I went to a local audio store and had them wire and hook it up. 5 Min into using it it stopped, I opened the trunk and there was smoke coming from the box. Sub fried. I went back and told them to replace it which I did and the same result occured. So I go buy a new JBL amplifier, a new Kenwood sub and hook it all up and I start to smell a burning smell again (which I think is the coils burning). Does anybody know why this is happening? I have a built in amp in my car but idk if that has anything to do with it. Also maybe theres a slice in the wire and its touching metal? Any ideas?
If the connections are correct...?
then it doesn't sound like theres a problem with the amp.
make sure the amp is not to powerful for the sub?
eg: 1000w amp, 500w sub.
Sounds stupid but it happens.
make sure the gain / volume is not too high!
if your BMW has a totally sealed, metal boot area this doesn't help.
