Need Help!! Amp too Hot!!
I have a sony xplod 1252gtr 800 watt amp
- 2-channel car amplifier
- 125 watts RMS x 2 at 4 ohms (170 watts RMS x 2 at 2 ohms)
- 340 watts RMS x 1 at 4 ohms (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)
- low- and high-pass filters (80 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
- variable bass boost (0-10 dB at 40 Hz)
I hooked up a pair of 12inch kenwood KFC-W3013PS
I have the two subs bridged and i believe the settings are around 3to 4 db bass boost, and im not sure what the other dial is but i believe its set to 5v maybe a lil more or a lil less, today was my first major use of them and i had them running for about 20 30 minutes and the amp was burning hot when i checked it
Is this amp capable of handling the subs at all let alone bridging them or do i need a beefed up amp. Would a capacitor help me out at all cuz my lights do dim as well with the system running, any suggestion on how big a capacitor i might need?

I guess youre connected subs in parallel - amp is not stable for 2ohm load in bridge mode. Caps are useless, check your wires and their connections at battery and alternator.
