With your 1000 zx1 kicker amp you would not be able to wire it at two ohms running at 1000 watts with a dual 2 ohm you would either have to run the speakers you have at 1 ohm or 4 ohms so unless you get different amps that are 1 ohm stable i would reccomend you getting the dual 4 ohm subs

They are dual 2 ohm all L7 are 2 voice coil per speaker so it is like 2 speakers not 1 the dual 2 ohm version is so you can use 2 speakers wired in series to get a 2 ohm load 2 ohms + 2 ohms = 4 ohms then parralel the 2 at the amp to cut it in half to get 2 ohms. I have full warranties on mine and i dont really sell alot of them any way I prefer the hifonics they sound better last alot longer and take way more power and put out 3 times as much sound. but i can check it out if you have the info.

    the only impedance you can get with a 2 ohm dvc speaker is 1 ohm or 4 ohms and kicker amps are not 1 ohm stable you have to use 4 ohm dvc subs to use 1 sub per amp the sub i have is 4 ohm dvc thats also why i dont like kicker amps they are over rated on power and none are 1 ohm stable.

    so you will only get 500 watts to each sub if you use the 2 ohm dvc subs which means you should wire the speakers in series ( + - and +- then wire both speakers to the amp the positive of 1 coil and neg from the other coil at the amp for each speaker ) and use both subs on 1 amp for a 2 ohm amp load and 1000 watts rms. if you use dvc 4 ohm u can load the amp at 2 ohms and use 2 amps and have 1000 watts rms per sub. sorry for the bad news.

    the good news is you can buy a hifonics from me that is inexpensive and is .5 ohm stable and run any dvc sub combo you want and have 2000 watts rms split between the subs

    if you want exactly 2000 watts rms 5000 peak it is 325 shipped it is a massive huge amp 20" long 12" wide but it is a monster and it is slightly under rated and requires a 250 amp fuse or circuit breaker. for a little less i can do a 1600 watt rms 4000 peak for 285 shipped. kicker doesn't have anything even close to it for any price. full 1 year warranty no questions asked i get blown speakers warrantied all the time and no one will honor warranties on blown speakers.

Want 2 remove stock speakers n install after market. Need 2 know how 2 remove stock speakers corectly

There are several sites that offer step by step procedures to remove stock speakers, for a small fee. Most replacements involve removing the door panel. I strongly recommend coughing up the minimal cost for these directions. You can replace your speakers, and if you sell your car, you can replace the stock speakers back where they go.

Look, if the amp is 1500watts mono, then you have the capability to run a sub up to the full 1500watts, but i see on the specs for this amp that it has output for 2 speakers, which means up to 750watts each speaker. That's more than enough to power your L7's. They're trying to sell you something you don't really need in my opinion. Hope this helps.

I have a used unit, need instructions on how to hook it up to a caddy 1995 factory am/fm radio

Are we talking a new deck/stereo or new speakers/subs?
A new deck will require a wiring harness (cheap at walmart or local auto place) and this will come with a set of directions and wiring diagram for your make/model vehicle.
Subs/Speakers can be wired into a stock AM/FM radio (though I have no idea why anyone would want to do this) fairly simply, The wiring diagram will be printed on one side of your stock radio letting you know where to attach the 12v constant, the remote wire, and the speaker wires.

I have 2 12" solo-baric l7s but don't know what

Get a dual vented box for them. Not some cheap stuff either or it wont last. Then make sure theyre facing the back when you hook them up. I know its weird but they hit WAY harder that way trust me.

Hello again. Sorry to say my knowledge is lil... I want to replace stock deck. Here is the stuff i want to put in it. Could you take a look and give an opinion if maybe i cant get away without putting a...

ok as for the deck just get the wiring harness for your car so you dont have to cut the old one out and that would eliminate the need for a wireing diagram with that done you should be able to hook all speakers you want to the stock spot so for a tweeter just hook it up with the door speaker there arnt any extra will only need a amp for a subwoofer unless you choose to put your mids and highs on one and if you didnt want to change your deck hook up the tweeters would be the same way hope this helped

I have 2 l7 kicker with a 2000 watt amp not really a good brand though..sometimes the subs work perfekt but sometimes they dnt work as the way they suppose to sound they sound really weak n when im driving...

OK-3 issues here but you already know one lol-you bought a substandard amp for some bad *** power hungry subs---thats your first issue :)

Check the ground for the AMP it shouldn't be any longer than 12" from the amp to its grounding point-Any longer than that and several issues can happen, like poor power to the amp, feedback (winding noise over the speakers, usually changes pitch or frequency with the engines rpm's), intermitant substandard sound (your experiancing this) and coil bounce (your subs move in and out producing little to no sound, you are experiancing this as well)

The same issues can come from the amp not having enough constant power to sustain the subs when they hit repeditivly, to fix this you need to buy a cap and add it to your system- A cap quickly charges using the battery, and supplies the extra umph your amp needs so it can push the subs without starving itself. With the subs you have I recommend a 1.5 to 3 fared capasator

I want to make a box for 2 12's in my 83 elcamino

personally I like Compressed board for the speaker box. It gives you that bass that's well defined. It can be covered with a material or painted. The only drawback is the heavier weight.

no - the coil cannot be replaced on any kicker speakers except the SOLO X
It is a proprietary part. Even kicker will not repair a speaker that is out of warranty.
You have a doorstop now (or passive radiator).
i am an authorized kicker dealer and get MANY questions about L5 and L7s.
I have (4) 15" L7s in my garage - hoping - someday - they will release spare cone assemblies. But for right now - they are displays only.

How to order

The L7 I have is brand new in the box (not a speaker box just the retail packaging box) and the rms is 750 watts RMS and 1500 watts peak, but you are correct they blow easy when you push rated power to them, the hifonics subs will take 1200 watts rms all day long and over 3500 peak for burping at competitions, i run mine at 2000 watts everyday in a daily driver. if you hook 1 dual 4 ohm sub to a zx1000.1 it will be 2 ohm load on the amp so you will get 1000 watts to the sub so if you want to run it slightly underpowered to keep it from blowing use the 750.1 per sub, i can do those at about 250 each shipped

the price is 150 plus 10$ flat rate USPS shipping and yes I accept paypal .

the warranty starts the day you buy it for 12 months but kicker will not cover burned or blown voice coils, that is why i recommended the hifonics (which is what i use to compete with now) because they put out better quality sound and alot more of it and they will take alot of abuse, if you want boxed speakers ready to go in kicker brand ported boxes I can have them drop shipped right to your door as well, the only reason i am selling the 1 L7 i have so cheap is because a customer ordered it then never paid for it so I am selling it at cost. be careful if you are buying on ebay as you have no warranty at all and you cant force the seller to give you 1 even if they say it has 1. because authorized dealers are not allowed to do internet sales at all so kicker and most other companies will not honor the warranties.

also you dont need 2 amps you can use 1 bigger amp and still run 2 subs just by changing how you wire the subs at the amp. 1 large amp costs less than 2 smaller 1's usually just not with kicker brand
