Question about Sony XM-DS1300P5 Car Audio Amplifier
I have a sony amp. I was professionally installed. The amp works for a few minutes then it turns of. After a few minutes it starts working again. I ask the peolple that I had them installed the amp and they say it's the amp, because the wiring is good. I am thinking that the amp overheats and turns off, then once it cools down it starts to work again. What could be wrong with the amp? Is it something easy to fix or should I just buy a new amp? Thank you
If they have bridged the outputs of the amp, be sure that the "ohms" load is 8 ohms. This would then apply a 4 ohm load to each of the output channels. It sounds like they have bridged the output or else hooked up the speakers in a paralled configuration that is trying to kill your amp. If you are using dual voice coil speakers then you have to treat each of the voice coils as a seperate 4 ohm speaker and wire accordingly. You need to correct this NOW or else you will fry your amp. Good luck.
