You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.

parallel wiring. hook all 4 positives together and run to the positive output from the amp, hook all 4 negatives together and run to the negative output from the amp.
hope this helps,

I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!

I have an 04 L7, and recently it just stopped working in gereral. any way to test it? power lights turn on on the amps and i hooked another sub up to the amp but no problems. Someone suggest maybe voice coils blown?how can i check that? or how much to fix it? or would it just be easier to buy a new one and throw the other one out? thanks!Please send all comments to firstname.lastname@example.org thanks!

turn them off and carefully push in on the cone (gently) and listen for scratching or scraping- push strait in and they should flow freely in and out if they DO without feeling or hearing scraping the subs are probably ok, next its either the amp is not powerful enough or the box is not soundly built, by that i mean its too small for the subs- is the box ported or sealed? if ported try plugging off the vent temporarily and see if bass increases if it does i would permanently seal the box

Hi Gott Mudd,
I can relate to feeling it in the bones. You got the stuff to do it. You should try the Alpine MP3 head units with bass boost, those are bad to the bone.
Amp to Speaker I like to use the code VC for Voice coil, and AO for Amplifier output. Also + for positive. If I say VC1-, I am referring to the first connector starting left to right on the Alpine Sub. Now I have not seen a Kicker KX1200.1 amplifier. All I see are MRA, MRP, or PDX prefix on the part numbers. So take what I am saying as a guess. You may want to revisit looking at the model of the amp to be sure your giving the right information.
We are going for 2 Ohms. Paralleling the two subs, not the voice coils. The voice coils will be series. Bridge the amp if necessary to get mono channel. only using AO+ and AO- for output.
AO+ to Sub1VC1+
AO+ to Sub2VC1+
Sub1VC1- to Sub1VC2+
Sub2VC1- to Sub2VC2+
AO- to Sub1VC2-
AO- to Sub2VC2-
Set your Crossover to LPF
Adjust the bass gain down to lowest until you test.
Set the Frequencies to midrange between 40 and 100hz
Your box can be ported or not. It depends on the space your have. If you do not have much room, go Enclosed and build a box that the inside space is less than 1 cubic foot. Make sure you give barely enough clearance for the speaker to fit. If you have room, Go with a box and vent it with a 3 inch Vent tube 10 inches long.
