Question about Sony Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier
My amp shuts off at high volumes. my rockford fosgate Hx2 dvc 4ohm is the only speaker connected to it. the speaker is wired for 4ohm and is connected to the amp bridged at the rear channels. why does the amp shut down?
If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.
If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.
