You amp has a low pass filter turned on. There should be a switch to turn it off on the amp, otherwise you need a different amp. Be careful, 600 watts is WAY over the v1342a's rated power of 45 watts rms. If you turn it up too loud, that amp will easily blow your speakers.

How do i wire these sony xs-ld106p5 10" sub they have four terminals i never seen this. i have a sony xm-zr1252 2channel amp 800 watts. im bridging them im only using one sub.


Dual voice coil. Positive from amp to either positive on speaker. Same with negative, then hook the opposite positive on the speaker to the negative on the speaker with a short wire.

Hi need some help instaling audio system on my bmw e39 525tds,got fuel shockwave 800 watt 3 oms subwoofer,2 JBL gto936e speakers and 2 sony tweeters and toxic tx-600 amp,can you tell me what wiring i need...


Walmart or a Specialty Audio Shop would carry a basic wiring kit for your job at task. As for the additional amp, thats your personal preference. If the Toxic Tx-600 AMP is a 600w amp, then I would say that is decent unless you're looking to get tickets for sound violations.. if you live in a city.

2 sony XS-L102P5 subs, sound great with deep bass but cones chatter when I hit them real hard


There is a possibility that you may be overpowering or under-powering your speakers with the amp you are currently using or are playing notes below the specified range of "Hz" of the subwoofer causing the sub to sound distorted or as you would call it "chattering".
If the speakers range is 130hz-45hz and your playing notes at 30hz and dont have it tuned at the crossover either on the amp or the stereo to suit the subwoofer, the speaker will try and play the note regardless and will cause the cones to move beyond its range and may cause it to slap the magnet which can damage the subwoofer if consistently played that way. Please let me know if this solved your problem..

Did you have it hooked up by a professional or did you (or someone you know) do it. If a shop/pro didnt do it make 100% sure everything is hooked up right. Increase the size of your power wire from your battery to the amp. Check your gain settings on the amp. If the vehicle you have this in has a trunk (not a hatch back), position your speakers against the back seat facing you as your putting them in the trunk. If none of this works, buy bigger speakers and more power!

Is amp big enough for speakers


Hello,

To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.

It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.

Hope this helps!

Voice coil


I'm sorry to tell you but it sounds like you may have put to much bass at a decent power rating through them and there not designed to be replaced. The whole speaker needs to be replaced. Do not use it as you are running a risk of shorting the circuitry in your radio or amp if the impedence is off from the blown speakers and can burn it up also.

Sony XS-GT - Burrrrrrrr Noise


It's likely that the cone is damaged, which isn't repairable. However, another problem I've seen with Sony speakers comes when the tweeter pod becomes loose on its mount. To check this, look at the bottom of the speaker magnet. In the center of the back plate, there should be a small screw. It might be hiding under a sticker. Try tightening the screw, if possible.
