Ok i just found the sony xplos amp that i thought has been discontinued. Should i get the kicker kx12001.1 or should i get another xplod and power my subs seperately which i have no clue on how to do. Which one of these choices would give me the most poewer? Oh and even if i just get one amp can someone just give me a quick run threw on how i would of powered both amps. Like do they both go to the battery or can i wire them to the other amp. All that sorts of good stuff lol. THANKSSSS
1200 watts max power 200 watts x 2 RMS into 4 ohms 500 watts x 1 RMS into 4 ohms
Those are the specifications for the sony xplod. After more amp wires and installation itll probally cost teh same amount for the kicker so what should i do. And does anyone know how to bridge these i didnt even know i could, and i doubt the people at circuitcity bridged it for me. Will i get more power if i bridge it?
i wasnt comparing them i figured i had one already so i could power two. I rather go with Kicker. But with the extra amp im gonna power it to my speakers if it has the right connections. Some guy from an audio store said i might not be able to. But someone from ecoustics said i will. And i believe the people here because there not trying to sell me their products. Atleast most arent lol.
two4fifteen... I as of now have one sony xplod powering my subs.. I found another sony xplod and was going to power each sub with each amp. Thats why i made this thread to see which is better two sony ampps powering my subs or one kicker. When I was told kicker is better without a doubt i asked if i could use the amp that i already have powering my subs and use it to power my speakers since im going to have this amp laying around soing nothing when i buy my kicker amp.... I hope that clears everything up lol. Let me know.
I basically know what im going to get but its going to take a month. Thats why i wanted to bridge this amp i already have just for the month. Im going with Kx12001.1 Amp from kicker... The pioneer deph680MP Premier. My speakers are factory bose pushed by a factory amp thats in my trunk. My subs are 4 OHms and i dont know what VC is lol. How do you think that set up will sound for me?
it looks like we're finally moving forward now. first, VC means voice coil. we need to know if your subs are single voice coil, or dual voice coil. this will help us determine whether your subs can be wired to a certain amp properly, to get the full potential out of the amp.
As for bridging your amp, this should not make any difference if your subs are already wired to each channel at their lowest impendence, probably 2 ohm. these leads me to believe your subs are probably dual 4 ohm and are each wired in parallel for a 2 ohm load each. if you were to bridge your amp, it would mean wiring each sub together (since their already wired up for a single 2 ohm load each)in series for a single 4 ohm load that would be connected to your amp bridged. for a VERY basic explanation, bridged just means using only the positive from one channel and only the negative from the second channel, to create one single channel. this single channel would have twice the power than each individual channel, but since you have both subs hooked up to it, they each share half. so its the same again.
this is a very crude explanation, but good for someone who doesnt understand the more technical aspects of amps anyway. remember that most amps are only stable down to 4 ohm bridged. and DONT assume that every 2 or more channel amp can be bridged.
and for your future additions, that kicker amp would be perfect for those subs. but i wouldn't mess with trying to hook up that sony amp to factory bose speakers already amplified by a bose amp. those are always really complicated to deal with. i would only use that sony amp if you decide to buy some components, or other aftermarket speakers.
