Question about Soundstream XTA720.4 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Condensation problem! my soundstream xta720.4 keeps forming condensation on cold nights then it will cause speakers to crackle, i believe this is from the alimium design which repidly cools once i have turned the car off on cold nights and forms the condensation.. i have to keep taking out amp and letting dry inside then reconnect every time it does it.. just wandering if anyones had similar problems or remedys?

All electronics have a recommended operating temperature range. This information can be found in your instruction manual.

Here is a possible remedy to your problem. Condensation forms when air temperature is cold AND there is moisture in the air. Protect your amp from this moist environment, and you're less likely to encounter condensation issues. You did not mention where the amplifier is located, so i will assume that it is in the most common installation area - the trunk. Is your trunk sealing properly? Do you have any standing water in the trunk or water leaking into the trunk? If so, correct this and you should be fine. Otherwise, installing a small fan near the amp can draw moisture away from it and help dry this air out - thus preventing condensation from forming.

Check if your shutoff valves are leaking. In a cold climate is the exhaust line partially blocked, and causing condensation to form on the pipes. Condensation forms and runs off of the cold water line to the tank. Try insulating the cold line. You can get preformed pipe insulation sleeves for about 1.00 each for a 3 foot piece.

Picture quality is dim. There's also a continuous crackling sound emanating from the rear area, I believe in the area where the lamp goes. Is this merely a lamp problem?


check the lamp ballast board which may the cause of dim and crackling sound. check for bad high voltage transformer and dry joints connector at the ballast board.

I am running two 15 spl soundstream woofers with a soundstream 500sx amp how do I bridge them to get maximum performance


the 15 spl woofers are dual voice coil, i believe 2 ohms per voice coil.

the 500sx amp is rated 4 ohms bridged at 500 watts, it is capible of dropping to 2 ohms sterao, but no lower than 4 ohms bridged. to get maximum performance, you cannot use both voice coils of both speakers, you can only use one speaker, or both speakers, while only using one voice coil from each.

there is no point of bridging them, you can achieve maximum performance by attaching one voice coil from each speaker to each channel of the amp, while leaving one voice coil from each speaker unconnected. you could also use just one speaker, attaching one vioce coil to one channel, and the other vioce coil to the other channel. then, i would suggest getting a second, identical amp to run the second speaker.

if you are persistent on bridging to mono, then you can only use 2 voice coils (both from one speaker, or one from each speaker) and you must run the voice coils in series, that is, from the amp positive to the 1st vioce coil positive, then run a jumper wire form the 1st vioce coil negative to the 2nd vioce coil positive, then, finally, run the 2nd vioce coil negative back to the negative of the amp.

this is all assumming that each voice coil is 2 ohms and each vioce coil has seperate inputs, meaning that each speaker has 2 pairs of speaker terminals.

Water dripping onto floor. I believe it's from the


The cold air escaping from any gaps in the door seal is likely causing the condensation build up on the exterior of the fridge. You'll need to see if you can get the door seal (it's magnetic) to lay properly against the cabinet all around the door.

Sometimes a dirty seal will cause very small gaps that will let cold air escape, so give the seal and cabinet edge a good cleaning, making sure that the surfaces are clean and dry when done. Also, check to see if the seal is tight by using a dollar bill placed between the door seal and cabinet, all around the door. Any areas that you can easily pull the bill out should be checked for tears and/or cracks in the seal.

You might have to buy a nes seal if your's is badly damaged, but usually you can restore it to working shape with some patience and a good cleaning..

The other thing to check, since you didn't provide a model number and approximate age of the fridge, is to see if you have a "energy saver" switch inside the fridge section. This will allow you to turn on edge heaters to keep the condensation from forming on the exterior of the fridge. With the energy saver "on", the heaters are turned OFF, with the energy saver switch "off" the heaters are turned on. Heaters draw more power when turned on, hence the term "energy saver" being turned on, saves you money if you don't have condensation buildup on the exterior.

Crackling sound


That sounds like an internal fault on your Bose system.

Leave the Bose unplugged from power and from computer for one hour, to get rid of electrostatic charges accumulated inside capacitors.
If that does not get rid of the problem, then there is an internal fault, either a short on speaker wiring, or a fault on the internal amp circuit board.

Sudden crackles in the right surround speaker!


Your speaker is busted. You will need to get another one. It really can not be repaired and if it can, it will cost more than a new speaker.
