Question about Sony Xplod 1100 Watt Max 10" Subwoofer, XS-L100P5W Car Speaker
I have a 1995 chevy S-10 pickup, with a SONY XPlode cd player, two 1100w 10" sony XPlode woofers hooked up to one l000w sony XPlode amplifier, It was working wonderful for more than 3 months til today. When I turn it on at a low volume it works fine, but when I pump the volume up to more than 20 on the radio, the woofers cut off with any kind of bass, the amplifier protection light (the little green light) doesn't turn red. When I turn it down below 20 again, the sound comes back uninterupted. Turned the radio off and when I turn it on the same problem happens again and again. I already checked the two 30 fuses from the amplifier and the one that goes to the battery (they're fine). The remote turn on wire is fine, as well as the power, ground, and RCA cables. I would appreciate your help. Thank you.
It might be that your wires from your amp to your subs are too thin. since they were relatively new the first three months, they were probably undamaged, but after pushing them too much, they probably have broken wires, and can't get enough power to the subs when turned up, i suggest getting thicker wires before investing in a capacitor, it could save you money.

I had this same problem, i have a 1993 s10 blazer, i would put it up past 18 and all bass would cut out, The only problem was there wasnt enough power gettin to the amp. The ground wire came lose and wasnt getting the power to the amp

Hi buddy , i think your amp may be fine since you have checked it , but i think its a power issue , your amp must be getting less power that it needs to drive your subs at high volume .Do you have a capacitor ? Try getting one if you dont. try running one sub does the same thing happen ??

Actually, those 1000w sony amps don't have a cooling fan or anything in it... they **** man. mine cut out when i cranked it up as well.. i suggest getting a new amp if the other solutions don't help. also, if you have your subs bridged... un bridge them and check that out...
