It depends on the impedance of the subs-if your subs are dual 4 ohm coils then you can parallel the coils which will give you 2 ohms per sub- you could get max performance from your amp by just wiring the 2 ohm speaker load to each channel of the amp which will hit them with about 200 watts rms each. another way to do it is to wire the coils in series which will make each sub an 8 ohm load and then parallel them together and that will show a 4 ohm load -which you can use to run the amp safely in bridged mode. This will give you exactly the same amount of power to your subs as in 2 ohm stereo will. so with your amp being 2 ohm stable in stereo or 4 ohm stable in bridged mode- those are the numbers you want to hit for maximum"safe" operation

The speakers just pulse when you plug in the rca jacks pn a sony xplod xm-zr1852


Depending on the amp, you may have a bad ground on the rca's. The best way to determine if you have a bad rca ground it to run a wire from ground to the outside ground of the rca. If it stops pulsing, you have a bad rca ground in either the amp or the head unit (radio).

I got Sony Xplod XM-ZR704 700W 4/3/2-Channel Car Stereo Amplifier and 12" sub. it play good for continuous 2 hours but after that starts tripping and goes on off. i checked all wires and connections.


Amp is probably over heating. Make sure the ohm load of speaker is good for that amp. This amp is not really built to handle a bridged 2 ohm load. Make sure ground wire is clean and tight to the body chassis.

I have 2 xplod 1000 w amps an 2 rockford 15inch power dvcs but the ampsare different models one is a XM-ZR1852 RB an one is the XM-2165 GTX. will both the subs sound the same if i hook up 1 amp to each...


Yes, power is power. If they are truly rated at the same output power into the same impedance then all you have to worry about is the crossover frequency. If those are not the same then they will sound different.

Can I run 8 speakers and 1 sub through 1 1200watt 2:1 Sony Xplod?


asuming the 8s are 4ohms each; wire two in series and that gives you 8ohms then two more in series then you put those together in parallel and it gives you a 4ohm load. repeat with other four for the other side. you should then be able to bridge the sub


series; posative of one speaker to negative of other speaker and that doubles your ohms

parallel; posative to posative negative to negative and that cuts the ohms in half

Xplod XM-DS1600P5 red light


For some reason it has gone into protection mode to limit further damage to the amplifier. Remove the subwoofer wires and power on to eliminate shorted voicecoil. After checking all wires for continuity to ground, a service tech will be required.
