I have an sony xplod 4 channel 600 watt amp


First are they in the same box? If so and they are sharing the same air space running one amp to both is best andwill perform better. One woofer could be over powering the other and or you could have a woofer problem. A lso your wiring coul be problem. When amp is bridged it changes the OHM reading and output your other woofer may not be rated at or able to handle a lower Ohm rating also it coul blow that woofer if it hasn't already hapened . Be careful. check woofers independently for operation and check the non performing woofer on an unbridged power source or amp. Hope this helps. Write back if not.

Why does my 6x9 amp drop or not let the sound play at all when my subs are on? it just started to happen? they worked together fine before. i turn the subs off and the 6x9 work? but when i turn the subs on...


You probably have too much hooked up for the size of your power supply which is presumably a small car battery. You either need to get:

A) New, better bigger battery.
B) Capacitor in series with battery.
C) Both of the above.

How to wire a sony 1200 watt amp


I believe what your trying to do is to run 2 12" subs and some other satillite speakers? We used to do that all the time.. That is called running the amp in "mixed mono" that's where the mids & tweets are run in stereo while the subs are bridged mono. This configuration is what made Rockford Fosgate "The Bomb" back in the day. To do what you want your subs have got to be 8 ohms, NOT 4, Dual Voice Coil 4 ohms would be OK. Before i tell you how it can be done let me tell you what will happen... For one thing you will be "making" your own cross overs for the subs and mids and tweets. Forget about using the cross overs on the amp. 2ndly you will lose about 1/3 to 1/2 of the amps power because the crossovers are so inefficient, so don't even think your going to get anywhere near 1200 watts from the amp. More like 300, and that's on a good day. But if you still want to do it you go to your Radio Shack and get 1ea 6.0 mHy (milhenry) coil and two 47 mfd (microfared) capacitors, or something close to that value. So you would wire your mids & tweets normal in stereo and on the + line to each mid wire in the 47 mfd capacitor. That is your h/p crossover which will crossover your mids @ appx 130hz. Now on your subs. You want to wire them in parellel (both +s twisted together and both -s twisted together so it looks like there is just one woofer with a + and a -) Than from the L+ of the amp run a wire to the coil and from the coil to the + of the woofers, than using the R- of the amp to the -s of the woofers. Do not use any of the amps built in crossovers leave it on full. Good luck. Mark @ Sounds Good to Me Tempe, AZ

Amp or something cutting out.


Power caps store power from the battery and they feed constant power to the amp so you dont get no drainage! this could be one reason..

have you bridged both subs and wat gauge wire are you using.

these amps can only handle one bridged sub at 4ohms and this amp is recommended that u use 8gauge or higher. if your running to subs i normally reccomend using 4 gauge power wire as you get more rms power feed to the amp

you can get a power cap or anyother accersory cheap online at my suppliers.. caraudiosecurity << click to enter >> hope this helps and please rate me :)

Sub not very loud


Hey buddy your question caught my eye because i have a buddy that was wondering the same thing not so long ago-and im no expert but i have had my run with rockford fosgate amps and a few sonys as well. So first of all if you know fosgates well you know that they ALL put out more power than what they are rated at -example your 400 watt fosgate amp is rated at 400 watts but if you got it new than it came with a birth sheet that shows you how much its really putting out-im just throwing a number out there but its probably closer to 480 actual watts. Now you get the sony amp and it says its a 1000 watts but its all bs -it actually is rated at 400 continous usable watts- so the reason that its not any louder than the fosgate is because you bought an amp with almost identical power output. The other part of the problem is that you are limited by your speaker-you could buy an amp that actually puts out 1,200 watts and plug it right in to your sub and its going to probably blow within 30 seconds or quite possibly catch fire. The numbers when dealing with car audio that you have to pay attention to are the R.M.S. power ratings - never look at the peak or max wattage because its all bs and yea its all bs- As i was saying you are going to be limited by your sub because as it stands right now you cant put much more power on that thing without blowing or roasting the coil. All subs have a limiting factor as to how much air they can move- this is called X-MAX and that tells you how far the speaker cone actually moves from start to peak excursion- once you have supplied the speaker with enough power to reach its x-max then thats it -no matter how much power you put on it it wont move any more air than that-and you will create heat and distortion if you try and thats just begging for a blown sub. If you want it louder than upgrade your sub to something that will move some serious air like a jl audio w7 or orion hcca subs -those subs can get it on like dammmmm or easier than that get another sub and then your moving twice as much air at a fourth of the price of buying a balls out jl w7-anyhow good luck with that
