    Sony XM-2165GTX Question answered.

    Sony Xplod 2/1 Channel XM-2165GTX
    Is this amplifier 1-Ohm Stable?
    Done several searches, looked on Crutchfield. Nearest I'm able to tell it isn't.

    Reason I'm asking is because my mom wants me to wire her subs for 1-Ohm. I don't want to screw her amp/subs up, she's under the impression that it actually does 1,000w RMS.
    What's sad is if she's parked, this thing takes gobs of power (Volt-meter on dash bounces between 13.1-13.8.) I've tried telling her that amp is not doing 1,000 watts, but she's under the impression "If it says 1,000 Watts, it does 1,000 watts!"
    She's running (2) Polk DXi 124 DVC (Rated 360w RMS) in a shared chamber slot port box.

    Re: Question about Sony XM-2165GTX

    Hey sounds like my step mother, believes shes right even though the proof is right infront of her. And no it is not 1 ohm capable.

    165 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms
    200 watts x 2 at 2 ohms
    400rms x1 @4



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Thanks, looks like I know what I'm getting her for her Birthday... or maybe I can point her in the right direction for her to buy an amp herself.
