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:)

Can you have just 2 channel by hooking up to right & left front speaker posts on 5.1 surround


short answer.....no. If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.

Want to tie in 4 8-ohm speakers to a sony TA-FE370 amp: do I do it in series or parallel or as two separate pairs ?


The two separate pairs works best, as this amp is only capable to drive 4 Ohm per side, so if you hook up 2 in parallel per side you will drive 4 Ohm per side and nothing should blow up, hope this helps.

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 get static and crackling sound out of right speaker, then it blows the speaker fuse, Sanaui au-999 what is wrong


Any of the transistors in the right channel power amp section circuit will have the fault. Check it. A very skilled work indeed.

Can I hook two 12in. Subs up with a 1100w amp. Sony explode, pioneer subs


Yes....hook one up to the left channel and one up to the right.....once everything is wired up.....keep gain down on amp and turn stereo on.....turn up stereo with amp gain down to right before high end speakers start to distort......then while its playing, turn amp gain up about 1/2 way. close your trunk and hop in drivers seat....sound gd????? You might have to adjust level on amp and bass on head unit to taste.....Be careful though....pioneer subs are only rated around 300 watts continuous.....dont want to blow them...gd luck....

My sony explode amp model xm-sd61x, 300 watt amp blows fuses as soon as i turn it on, I have it opened up, any suggestions


dissconect the speakers from the amp and power the amp up with no load, if it doesn't blow any fuses, check the resistance on the subs with a DMM to see if they are blown

After playing for a while my Sony Surround Amp cuts off and shows a PROTECT Reading in the window.


Sounds like the amp is protecting itself from an over-current situation.
This happens when the machine has to try too hard to get sound out to the speakers.
There are several possible reasons.
You may be using the wrong impedance speakers for the amp.
-some amps only work with 8ohm speakers
-some only work with 4ohm speakers
If you have a short circuit in the speakers or in the speaker wiring, that could cause the amp to overwork and go into protection.
If you connect up multiple speakers to the same single output of the amp you effectively short out the amp and cause it to overwork also.
Before troubleshooting, blow out the amp, dust inside can cause lots of problems with the electrical systems. Use canned air and do it outside with fresh air.
To troubleshoot :
1. check to see that the amp and the speaker have the same impedance number, either 4 or 8ohm. This is usually printed on the back of both. If they do match go to step two.

2-unplug all the speakers, add one speaker(left one) and test it for awhile to see if it goes into a protection mode. Next move that same speaker to the right side output and run it for awhile to see if it goes into protection mode. Repeat the test with your other speaker, moving it to both outputs(L&R) to check if it works. If the amp fails with either speaker on either output, you may have a mismatch of speaker and amp or a bad amp. If you have only one speaker that causes a protection, then you have a bad speaker or it's wire. If both speakers go into protection, get different speakers and test again. if it works for all of these tests, go to step three.

3.hook up both the left and the right speakers to the amp. be sure that the wires are stripped cleanly and twisted tightly, if you have screw on outputs that is. Test for proper operation. At this point you should know if there is a single speaker causing the protection or if it is a amp malfunction.

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).
