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

you need to quit buying amps you dont use....lol!

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.

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!

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 (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/Amplifiers/GM+Series/GM-D510M)

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_23548_Hifonics-Brutus-BRZ1200.1D.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.

I Was told this amp will run subs or highs just fine.

What would make a difference is how each amp handles musical demands. Some amps can't keep up when volume increases. I would doubt the pioneer or the hifonics has the same quality components as in the amp.

I need to find out if my current Italian amp even has as good of parts

I'd really like to grab this while I have the chance but I haven't got the cash.

Need anything else, midbass or somethin'?

wtf? I was trying to contact you to buy the 460 you had..lol

I just finished putting it in the car and well ..its clean ...

pm me if you have something in an 8 inch sub. I will work with you for just cash. I will let you pay me in chunks. I would like to see the 460 and 2100 together.

this is a nice sounding amp. I just pulled out my Audio Systems Twister f4-380 which is a Italian made amp and I have to say I can keep this and sell the twister. its that clean
