I have xs ld125 p5's and they stopped working. i confirmed that the amp worked by plugging in other speakers. so for some reason the subs won't play at all! they handle up to 1400w max each yet the amp max out is only 800w, not near enogh to blow them. what do you think is wrong and what should i do, and how much will it cost.
Hi heres a simple test check that the wires to these speakers is not just broken or cut , easy check would be to disconnect the wires and test with a Multimeter against each pair of wires , or better yet a simpler test is an AA size battery across the speaker wires should give a crackling sound , that will show you that they are good . If these 2 fail , your speakers are blown.Surprisingly an overpowered amp will blow speakers much easier than one thats not...It will cost you quite a bit ... .

Check your fuses on your amp power lead and amp or make sure your amp is turning on the should be a light somewhere amps can break more times then the sub. Check all your connections or check your amp and head unit settings most probably a fuse mine blow sometimes
It sounds like the problem is with the amp. try using the other sub in bridged mode and see if it still turns it off. If it still turns off then its definitely the amp. In 2 channel mode you are using each channel at 4 ohms right? and in bridged mode to 1 speaker it should be throwing a ton of power on a 4 ohm load as well,it should work fine bro -its gotta be the amp
How do you know it's not the amp? Have you tried hooking up good speakers to the same output terminals of the amp?
Speaker failure modes: Usually they fry, the foam surround disintegrates, or there's a bad internal wire connection/solder joint that fails. Subwoofers are designed to handle a lot of power and rarely fail.
There are three possibilities: 1) The signal isn't getting to the amp from the crossover. 2) The amp is toast. 3) The speakers are bad.
You don't tell me whether you have a separate amp for the subs with an external crossover, or whether you have one amp with internal crossover and separate internal amps and speakers outputs for subs and standard speakers, so I can't be more specific.
What you can do is:
Check all external connections, including the power connections.
Try substituting replacements for the patch (signal) cables to see if you have a bad cable.
Beyond this, it's pretty much up to a repair technician.
you may need a new head unit. it sound like you have lost the fron rca hook ups on your unit. common prob. usually cause by a surge traveling then the rca cables. i myself have had this happen and there is nothing you can do to the unit to fix it.
To run 2 subs, the amp would be a little small. The subs will run OK, they just won't be very loud.
It's usually better to compare and match up the RMS power rather than the peak power. The Sony XS-L10P5B sub has a peak power handling figure of 1200 watts, but the RMS is 300 watts. The Sony XM-ZZR3301 monoblock amp puts out 1100 watts peak, but only 330 watts RMS. They would work great together, 1 sub, 1 amp. But if you add another sub, each one would only be getting about 165 watts. They'd work OK, just not as loud as they could be.
it sounds like u blew them or the voice coils could be messed up here is one way to check take the woofer out of the box and look at the coils it should be ornge and then smell it if it smells like fire it might be going bad thats the reson it is frezzing like that let me no what happens and please rate me
