    Sony ES 2100G made in JAPAN high end SQ 1 ohm stable.

    [U]Item(s) for Sale:SONY ES 2100G




    [U]Item(s) Description/Condition:

    The g2100 12v rated specs are

    100x2 at 4ohms

    180x2 at 2ohms

    210x2 at 1 ohm

    360x1 at 4 ohm

    420x1 at 2 ohms

    DYNAMIC OUTPUTS:

    230 watts per channel (at 4 ohms)

    380 watts per channel (at 2 ohms)

    500 watts per channel (at 1 ohms)

    700 watts (monaural) at 4 ohms

    1000 watts (monaural) at 2 ohms


    This amp (G2100) was benched and provided a little over 600 watts bridged at 4ohms and about 700 bridged at 2 ohms. For a good idea of true continuous power look towards the average between the 12v rated and "dynamic" power.




    3. Description/Condition:
    very good shape minus the shroud.


    thanks to OLDSCHOOLAUDIOANDVIDEO FOR THE BACK GROUND ON THE OLD SONY LINE.

    This is to compare the Sony Xm models versus the G models which use a very similar heatsink and color. But they are not the same amp on the inside.
    Both are ES models. Even the G models are XM but a higher level of the XM. Both are very nice and offer great SQ but.... the prices may vary due to the components used int the amps.
    The only amp I havent had or heard is the 460G. Which is a 4 channel version of the 260G.
    The XM3546 and XM5046 is apparently a smaller version of the more beefy 460G which is a 4 channel G series ES Amp. The G is a Gibraltar heatsink and also signifies a more robust components usage in the amps such as the number of caps and also bigger fets in the power supply. I think the caps used in these amps are the same type ( brand name)

    The XM series, although an ES model, is one step lower than the G models.
    BUT
    The XM5046 is a dual power supply amp and has 4 channels. The XM3546 as you can see doesnt have dual power supplies.
    The XES is a step above these models and was a whole different SQ amp.
    The XES uses even larger Fets. Larger caps and totally separate power supply and amp board in one heat sink. The XES is the Best Sony offered and was outstanding.

    The rarest of all these Sony ES amps is the 460G

    The XM5046 is indistinguishable form the 2100G in sound. Even though the Model (XM vs G) should be a substantial different in components. The Xm3046 , although nice and clean for mids and highs, doesnt offer the same sonics as the XM5046.

    These amps all use balanced inputs. A very important consideration when going SQ in an install , to eliminate ground loops.


    Here is a great website with more info on the different Sony models.
    its a FREE guts website

    IT HAS THE 260g WHICH IS THE SMALLER VERSION OF THIS 2100G

    $125 shipped will get you a very high SQ amp for your highs or a nice sub amp. its 1 ohm stable or 2 ohm stable bridged.

    thats a $50 loss on my end cause my plans changed

    I was going to use this one but then I found that new Twister F4-380 and well I had to have it more. I hadnt planned on selling this one.

    would you rather I have a closet full of amps hording them away like others do?

    its not like I am making money on it. I am loosing $50 on this. I pay good money for good amps. this is a good amp. I am not going to die if I keep it. it will be my backup. I may swap out the twister with this for a comparison.

    Re: Sony ES 2100G made in JAPAN high end SQ 1 ohm stable.

    I've got the Kicker box with the 2 12" CVR's. You know the one, 7 inch port yada yada yada.... Anyway, I've got a Pioneer on em' right now pushing maybe 600 @ 2. Sounds good but could take a lot more. Would this be better or kind of a waste of time on the CVR's being an SQ type amp? Cause I was just going to get a Hifonics 1200.1 which are pretty cheap too. Don't say the 750.1, can't afford it right now. Thanks!

    Re: Sony ES 2100G made in JAPAN high end SQ 1 ohm stable.

    How much is the hifonics?

    I have 2 500 watt amps that can be slaved together for 1000+ watts and they are less than 12 inches long each.


    But to your topic. Unless that pioneer is a dog and not really doing 600 then it may or may not make a huge difference.

    What model pioneer is it? Honestly only certain pioneer are good just like only certain Sony are good.

    I would need more info. Not going to bs you.

    GM-D510M - Mono Class D Power Amplifier with 1000 Watts Max. Power | Pioneer Electronics USA

    It's this one. It's been a really good amp. I've been beating the Hell out of it for 3 years now! Takes it like a champ. The Hifonics is 900 @ 2 ohms. The ratings on the Hifonics are pretty solid right?

    never seen that Pioneer. I usually try to get the Premier if any of the Pioneers.

    this the hifonics?

    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...RZ1200.1D.html

    if so it looks good on paper. cant say how it will last or perform in real life or how they even come up with the ratings. I am not a maxonics user.
