If the power light is lit and the amp is not in protect mode, the power supply is probably blown.

Have you confirmed that you have a good signal reaching the amp and that the speakers are not blown?

    The 'power supply' to which I was referring is the switching power supply inside the amplifier.

    On the Sony amp, you'll use the two BTL terminals for bridging but you MUST make sure that the speakers are wired so that the impedance is safe for the amp.

    BTL = Balanced Transformer-Less.

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 have a sony xplod 1000 watt amp.ive had it hooked up for about 6 months it sounded great.this morning i started the truck up and wasnt working looked at it and my compassador was blinking.i hooked it up...


The Capacitor block was blinking because the device it was supplying a filtered DC voltage to was drawing a lot of current. Your amp has a fault somewhere, more than likely the power stage. Could be a shorted output transistor.

sounds like maybe a speaker short, try unhooking your speakers and then powering up your amp, if it then powers up with the speakers unhooked try hooking up each speaker one by one untill the amp goes back into protection and then you have your bad speaker.

Check the wiring of the speakers (both inside the box and between the box and the amp). It sounds like one speaker is wired incorrectly at one connection point.

Either the speaker is shorted out (blown), or the output transistors in the amplifier are bad. Try hooking up another speaker to the amp. If it plays, the amp is good. If not, then the amp is bad.

Sony Xplod 500w green power light no sound


try running the system with a cross-over configuration.

So your left + will be left + and your right + will be in the right + but put the right (-) where the left (-) is and left (-) where the right (-) is. If that doesnt work, then that means that you shorted out your audio out channels. the only way you can fix that is if you have good soldering skills. But other than that I'de say scrap it, unless you have the high outputs and then buy another amp, some mids and highs and connect the mids and highs to the xplod

Sony xplod xm-554zr amp


if you are trying to run some highs with built in high-pass crossovers off of a amp that is setup for subs(amp is on low-pass) then your highs will not work. You are better off running another amp or running them off of your deck...
