It sounds like you are drawing to many amps and you need to go to a higher capacity altinator and a second battery would be a good idea as well. Start your car (do it at night makes it easier to tell) turn on your headlights without your stereo on look at head lights and see how bright they are then slowly turn stereo on and up if headlights dim you are drawing to many amps and need a higher capacity alt to charge and stop you from blowing them, and second battery with and isolator so you don't draw amps from the battery that starts your car.

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

Nothing sony is a good name but when it comes to car audio they have nothing but their name. I had a thump amp from the 80's that worked better than my sony xplod that had more power. If you want better quality try rockford fosgate, clarion or kenwood

Sony Xplod Amplifier Problem


First make sure you are using at least a 12 guage speaker wire for sub connections. Second make sure you have plenty of breathing room in your mounting position, these things need air badly. Third of all, Xplods are not very friendly if they are cranked all the way up on your dB boost knob. Only crank it about 3/4 of the way up, then use your equalizer settings to tweak the thump.

Xplod amp


You have 3 power connection, +12v goes directly to your vechile's battery (make sure this is fused) REM connects to your head unit which tells the amp when to turn on and off (usually very thin wire, comnpared to the gnd and +12) Te gnd you already know where it goes. Then connect your sub to + and - speaker out put. If you run this bridged it will increase your output, must be 2 channel to bridge to 1 channel or a 4 channel bridged to 2 channels. Hope this helps.
