Question about Sony XM-754HX Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

RCA question Hello, I have a question for you, on the best way to use RCA's from a crossover to a 4 channel amp. I would like to use all 4 channels on this amp. that will power my 4 mids. what I mean is do I use a single RCA from the crossover, and then use Y adapters, so that I can plug into the front and rear inputs on the amp. or do I use the Y adapters at the crossover, and the run 2 RCA's into the amp. Is it better to have 2 RCA cables from the crossover, or just 1. not sure if that makes a difference or not. Thank You!

No volume on all left side speakers


Determining the Cause of the Problem Let's assume our system has a head unit, a crossover, a two channel amplifier and two door speakers with only the right speaker working (the left speaker is not working). If the door speakers are behind the door panels then we want to make sure the speaker is the problem before removing the panel. We'll work backwards starting with the amplifier and ending at the head unit. Testing for a Speaker Problem With the vehicle and the stereo turned off disconnect the speaker wires for both the left and right speakers at the amplifier. Now connect the left speaker to the right amplifier output (which we know works). Turn on the stereo system and make sure the balance is set to the middle position.If the speaker still doesn't work then the problem is somewhere between the amplifier and the speaker Testing for an Amplifier Problem Now we'll need to see if the amplifier channel is bad. Put the left speaker back on the left amplifier channel and the right speaker on the right amplifier channel. This returns the speaker wiring to its original configuration. Again, with the vehicle and stereo off unplug the RCA cables from the amplifier's input and switch them so the left cable is in the right input and vice versa. Turn on the stereo system. Testing for an RCA Cable Problem For any intermediate components between the amplifier and the head unit follow these steps for each one. We only have a crossover so we'll just do this once. Begin by testing the RCA cables between the intermediate component and the amplifier. Unplug both RCA cables from the intermediate component's output. Now plug the working channel's RCA cable into the non-working side of the crossover. In our case the working channel is the right so plug the right RCA cable from the amplifier into the left side of the crossover. Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work then you know the problem is in the RCA cables between the amp and the crossover. esting for a Crossover or Equalizer Problem At the input of the intermediate component (in our case the crossover) flip the RCA cables around (left to right input and vice versa). Turn on the stereo system.
If the right channel continues to work and the left channel continues to not work then you know the problem is in the intermediate component. Replace or repair this component.
If the problem is now in the right speaker and the left speaker works then the problem lies before the crossover. Turn off the stereo system and return the RCA cables to their normal places.
Testing for a Head Unit or RCA Cable Problem Pull out the head unit from the dash so you can access the RCA cables. Unplug both RCA cables from the head unit. Do not disconnect any other wiring. Plug the right RCA cable into the left channel of the head unit. Turn on the stereo system.

How to hook up the wires of Mackie CR-1604 mixer, to Alesis ADAT xt20 recorder


If memory serves correct you have rca and outs, 8 each. Using rca to 1/4" cords work the best. Connect each of your cords from the "in" on the alesis to the channel access 1 through 8 I believe to the first click. Run the "outs" from your alesis to channels 9 through 16. Use 9 through 16 as playback and 1 through 8 for instruments. This is one good way of doing it with our limited gear. Good luck!

follow this instructions and fix it. God bless you
Instructions
    • 1
      Plug one end of a shielded input cable into the mixer's main output, and the other end into the crossover's input. The cable connectors will be dictated by your particular mixer and crossover, and will be either standard 1/4" or 3-pin XLR connectors. Consult the owner's manual of all components for specific details and recommendations.

    • 2
      Plug another shielded input cable into the crossover "high" frequency output, and the other into the crossover's "low" frequency output.

    • 3
      Plug the cable coming from the crossover "high" output into the channel one input on the stereo power amp, and the cable from the crossover "low" output into the channel two input of the power amplifier.

    • 4
      Plug one end of the unshielded speaker cable into the power amp channel one speaker output, and the other end into the horn tweeter.

    • 5
      Plug one end of the second unshielded speaker cable into the power amp channel two speaker output, and the other end into the woofer. The connections are now complete.

I would like to know I have 2 subwoofer with amp how can I connect it the best way thank you


first, you will need a passive crossover, i do not believe that the mono out of the mixer has a crossover., if the amp does not have a crossover. you could use the "mono" output, and split the signal, with an adapter, to both channels of the crossover, then run both of the low outs to the 2 channels of the amp. or, you could hook the crossover to the main laft and right outputs of the board. send the 2 low outs, left and right, to the subs' amp, and send the two high outs, left and right, to the main speakers' amp.

How many watts is it

Page 7 of the manual gives you all the different configurations of this amp, and it's MAX power. FYI; Kenwood rates their amps at MAX power, not clean. Hope this helps.

Can i bridge the 4 ch. amp to 2 chnl.


Hello bdawson,

Maybe. Some, but not all, 4-channel amps can be bridged. You'll need to provide a specific brand and model number for a more definitive response.

On many bridgeable amps, the connections are shown right on the output terminals, usually the "+" of one channel and the "-" on another channel. The connection diagram in your user manual may also show which channels are bridgeable and the appropriate connections. Some amps may support what they call "tri-mode", powering both full-range speakers and subs at the same time.

Using a multi-channel amp with the channels bridged to power subs is a compromise. While you'll get an increase in power, it usually isn't as much as you would get from a monoblock. And fine tuning for the best sound is more complicated, balancing the filters and crossover so that the correct frequencies are sent to the appropriate speaker.

Hope this helps.

Wiring Speaker to amp


remove all speaker connections to your amp. MAke sure the inputs are driving all 4 channels, and that the built in crossovers on the amp are all set to full range. Conect your full range speaker to each output channel one at a time and verify there is oputput on all 4 channels. If all is ok, then connect your rear speakers to the front(a) outputs of your 4 channel amp, and then use the second 2 channels (rear or B) bridged to drive the sub. Re-configure the crossovers for highpass for front (to drive your rear speakers) and lowpass for sub. This is the proper way to connect a 4 channel amp with a sup whle driving 2 full range speakers.

2 channel amp to 6-6x9 wiring diagram


Hello magoocsl,

Yes, with the use of 2 high-pass and 1 low-pass crossovers, that Kicker amp will operate in what they call stereo and mono simultaneously (SAMS). You'd run 4 of the 6X9's in mono. Wire them in series-parallel with a low-pass crossover on the positive leg to the amp. The amp would see a 4ω load. The other two 6X9's would be wired as stereo, one to each channel with a high-pass crossover. Again, the amp sees a 4ω load.

Here's a link to the appropriate wiring diagram. The diagram is on page 5. Just substitute your 4 6X9's wired in series-parallel where they show the "mono" speaker.

Hope this helps.

RCA cable use


You can plug into the left channel and it will feed both the left and right channels.

To confirm that it's feeding both channels, connect the speaker to one channel at a time. With signal fed into the left channel only, you should get sound when you connect the speaker to either channel.
