Check to see what your ground wire is rated at. I recently installed 2 12" sony xplods(XS-L120P5W) and a MTX Audio TC4002. They didnt sound near what they should have. I increased my ground wire from a 12gauge to 6 gauge and it sounds amazing now. Also you could try bridging the speakers, that most of the time helps

That's not a 1000w amp. It's a 400 watt amp when loaded to it's lowest rated load. If you have one speaker per channel (the only safe load if you have single 4 ohm coil speakers), you're only getting 165 watts/speaker. It's probably distorted because you're driving it to clipping.

I have a 800 watt sony amp pushing 2 memphis pr's should the amp get hot


Yes the amplifier will become very warm or "hot". It is a good idea to place it in an area that will recieve plenty of ventilation and air flow. Some companies sell cooling fans for larger amps.

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.

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.

IF THE RMS IS 800 THEN THAT IS THE MINIMUM YOU SHOULD RUN TO THEM. IF THE MAX IS OVER 1000 WATT, YOU SHOULD BRIDGE ONE SPEAKER TO EACH CHANNEL. YOU WILL PUSH THE MOST POWER TO THEM THAT WAY. MORE POWER = MORE BASS

High distortion


The head unit may be rated at 200 watts but it cannot produce more than ~20 watts of real power per channel. There's no way that it can drive the high end speakers to a level that will be needed to compete with the subs on a 1000 watt amplifier.
