This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.

Is the sony xplod cdx-gt71w able to support a subwoofer without another amp


Sure is.

The sony is bridgable as follows:

  • 100W x 4 @ 4 Ohm
  • 100W x 2 + 250W x 1 @ at 4 Ohm

  • This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.


    The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4

    How can a person bridge a boss cx 150 to operate on one woofer, it works when connected to either output and when connected to one neg and pos from other channel, does the other pos and neg need connected


    basically to bridge a amp if you look at the speaker connections on the amp it will say + - / + - those r your 2 channels above below or next to one + of one channel there should be an additional + sign and the same thing with the - of the other channel those are your bridged positive and bridged negative how you hook it up to bridge it is to connect both positives from both speakers to one positive and both negatives from both speakers to one negative this will drop the ohms in your amp as well as your speakers giving you more if your amp is not bridgable then you will not see the extra + - signs you can still attempt to bridge it but is a good posibility that you could blow the amp because it can not handle operating at a lower ohm rating if you are hooking one speaker up you do the same but just hook one speaker up instead of two

    Sony X-Plode amplifier. NOT working


    It is possible if the model amp you have is bridgable to 1 channel. Usually when you bridge an amp you will need to hook one wire to the positive side of one channel and the negative side to the other. You will need to consult you user manual for the amp or get the manual from the sony website for instructions on how to bridge the amp or if the amp is even bridgable.

    Watt size fuse do i use to connect a 350 watt stereo/bridgable amp using a 4 gauge power cord


    You use the same amp fuse as on your amp, nothing larger. The fuse just keeps the wire from overheating/shorting and causing a fire.. IF you amp has a 30 amp fuse then you use a 30amp fuse off the battery

    Subwoofers


    This will depend on the amplifiers capabilities.

    I will give 2 different scenarios.

    #1 Stereo configuration

    If the amplifier supports an RMS power output close to the RMS input power of the subwoofers then run the amplifier in stereo mode. For example 150 watts RMS X 4 channels driven at 20-20khz. (If you can provide a model # for the subs and the amp your looking at I can help you further with this decision.

    Wiring for this is easy and simply involves matching the connectors for 2 of the channels (Front or Rear) to each of the subwoofers.

    #2 Mono Bridged mode.

    If the amplifier is lower power but mono bridgable you can bridge two Pairs of channels and power each of the subwoofers this way.

    Generally speaking a 2 channel bridgable amplifier will be able to at least combine the wattage of each channel into a single monural channel and in many cases its actually higher.

    So you would bridge the front 2 channels into a single bridged mode for one subwoofer. and then you could bridge the read 2 channels into another bridged mono channel for your other sub woofer.

    For example if you had bridgable amplifier thats 50 watts RMS X 4 you coudl very likely (Generalization based on quality of amplifier) send 150 watts RMS to each subwoofer.

    Again I would need to know what amp you're refering to to provide specific wiring instructions. Many Bridging amplifiers either have a single switch that will send them to bridged mode or you would use the positive + terminal from one channel and the negative - terminal from the other channel or a combination of both.

    Wiring installation on Majestic amplifier total 60watts 2x30 model# ma-60


    To install the amp you need a amp wiring kit they range from $15 and up depends on how many watts u have.Once you have the wiring kit start with the ground wire it needs to be no longer then 24 inches long the shorter the better find a good ground in the trunk or where ever you want to install the amp make sure its metal to metal no plastic paint or any other debrie is in the way of the metal.If you can't find a paint free surface all you will need to do to fix this is sand off some of the paint and then ground the amp.The ground wire needs to be connected to the amp before any other wire once you have the ground connected then connect the battary wire make sure you have the right size inline fuse on the battary wire that also depends on the watts of the amp.once you have those 2 wires connected then u will need to pull the stereo out of the dash and hook up the remote wire to the power antanna wire if you have a factory car stereo and don't have a power antanna you can try one of these solutions 1st one Run the remote wire from the battary wire on the amp and use a toggle switch between the remote and battary wire or you can run the remote wire from the amp to the fuse box of the car and hook it up to a fuse that only works when the key is turned on.Once you have all this hooked up its time to hook up the subs/speakers on the amp it should indicate if its bridgable it will show lines from one positive and one negative and at the top of the lines it will say bridge but if not the just connect the speakers positive to positve and negative to negative.If it is a bridgeable amp i would only recommend hooking it up bridged if you are hook up subs if you are using 6x9's on the amp you don't need to bridge the amp.If u have any more ?'s just ask i can help with this i've done this alot.

    Bridging


    Yes and no lol. I sold that product about three or so years ago. That amplifier is whats called a mono amp. The outside shows two channels but they are still tied together. Think of it as a hose with a Y on it so two lines can run out from it. Its still the same amount of water whether you use both hoses or not. So bridge it if you want to but it will for looks and looks only. Note that amp is only two ohm stable so be careful what woofers you use. You will want two single 4 ohm woofers for a regular instalation. DO NOT USE Dual 4 ohm speakers Good Luck
