Either the speakers are old, or you need new ones. If you put new ones and it blew them again, then check the power rating, and make sure it is wired properly. if it is wired properly, then make sure the speakers are designed to handle the power of the amp> :) any other q's ... just ask me:)

800 watt mono block sony xplod amp blowing my dual coil 1500 watt subs


if the wiring to the sub is correct, then you have something wrong with the amp itself... something is power surging to the subs which is causing them to blow

I installed a planet audio TW402 amp in my car. i put this amp last summer. when i first put it in my car with an sony xplod sub. i had a very small 12 gauge power wire and ground wire. but still it worked...


It could have to do with how your speakers are wired. If you have 2- 4 ohm speakers and they
are both wired to one terminal (RIGHT OR LEFT) on the amp, you have a 2 ohm load and most amps are rated at 4 ohms.
Go to this site and use #58 on the right sidebar to see if you are wired correctly.

I have speakers that have 60wattsrms@4ohms if i hook them up to this amp (xm-zr704)will i blow them?


hi,
Surlely you can connect these speaker to this amp . Your amp will deliver 150w at 4 ohms if you use 4 speaker setup. So keep in mind that, don't go for a high volume level. If you need higih volume level go for a speaker which will handle 150 w.

ok

no you can't cause 1 of 2 things will happen you might damage the speakers or sub, or 2 you will blow the amp or the fuses. if you blow the fuses then it will be constantly blowing and you will spend a lot more money than just buying another amp.

I have a sony xm-2002gtw amp and i want to bridge this amp to get the full 1200-watts,how would i wire my speakers i have two 2-ohm dual solo baric


In order to get full power from the amp you need to wire you amp ( high level input of the amp ) to your cars rear speakers both left and right ( negative to negative positive to positive ), once done you can wire your speaker to the left and right speaker output of the amp. Comment if you need more assistance. Best of luck

Repair service for AG1000 Zapco Amp.


Is it blowing the three 30 amp on-board fuses?

To have 3 speakers bridged, each speaker must have at least a 12 ohm impedance (assuming that all speakers are connected in parallel). If you're running a load lower than 4 ohms (mono), the amp will likely fail.

The fuses don't blow right away because they are cold at first. As they heat up, they can blow more easily (even though the current draw hasn't increased).

Blown fuses


I used to have one of those amps also (nice amp btw) Did you try another fuse of the same size?
Is it blowing fuses everytime you put one in or did it just blow that one fuse ?
Is the conection on the battery solid and clean of corrosion build up? Because that is a good amp and if wired properly shouldnt blow out or anything and so if the speaker is not blown then maybe connection is weak somewhere? I would try disconnecting the speakers from it and try a new fuse and if it does not blow the new fuse than amp is ok? and if it does blow the new fuse right away then there must be a short somewhere in the wire or the amp. then disconnect the fuse again and reconnect the speakers and if the fuse blows with the speakers connected but doesnt blow with them disconnected then you know it is a blown speaker causing the problem.

Just currious but what size fuse do you have connected at the battery?
