This question really can't be answered accurately online for a few reasons.. we don't know if you have a ported or sealed box, we also don't know what kind of box you have, wether it's a 4th order, 6th order...blah blah blah. We also don't know what the box has been tuned to (if it's ported). unfortunately, you'll have to play around with it yourself or get someone to physically see your set up. But here are some tips to help you tune your set up.
1st set up the frequency( or crossover). this basically tells you sub the range it should run in. alot of people don't set up their crossovers properly and the sub is reproducing frequency's the mids are producing so some notes are far louder than they should, which makes for unbalanced audio. when you get that sorted out move onto the gain. (keep in mind, that if you've only installed a sub and have stock speakers or are running upgraded speakers off the head unit and not an amp the frequency is going to be harder to control since you can't control the other speakers.) next the gain, the gain is really just volume. Play a song with alot of bass and set the sub at a volume that pounds, but not to the point where your other speakers get drowned out and there you go, you should have a pretty good sounding setup. If this is the first time you're tuning it may take some time, but please do this with your car running, far to often i hear people killing their batteries as they don't realize that amps really do **** alot of power.
If you purchased the subs and box separately the box usually tells you what it's tuned to (if ported) and you can use that to guess where to set your frequency.

How do you wire a single 15 L7


Depends on a few things. What is the impedance of your speaker? I will assume it is dual voice coil with each voice coil having a characteristic impedance of 4 ohms. Next what amp are you driving this speaker with? What is its minimum stable load it can run at in bridged mono? If it is 2 ohms stable then you can wire the voice coils in parallel, + to + and - to -. Then wire the + and - to the amp in its recommended bridged configuration. If the amp is not stable down to two ohms you will have to wire the voice coils in series, you will not have effective power from the amp with an 8 ohm load.

Here is a diagram from kicker to aid you.

I have 2 kicker cvr15 4 ohm duel voice coil speakers how do i wire them to a kicker zx1000 amp??????????


The ZX1000 is a two ohm stable amplifier, so this means that you have to connect your two voice coils in series to give you around 8 ohms impedance per speaker, then connect your two speakers in parallel to give you 4 ohms impedance on the single mono channel on the amplifier. I recommend you connect it up in the following manner:

Hi yeahonda,

 

Your Kicker L7 Ohms may be too low for the MA Audio Mono block amp. The MA Audio Amp is probably 2 Ohm Stable. The kicker will either be 2 ohm or 4 ohm Dual voice coil.   To eliminate the low ohms as a possible threat to causing the map to go into Protect, Wire the kicker Voice Coils in Series.  This adds the ohms, so that you either have 4 or 8 ohms. 

I am using the following codes to show wiring. VC1+ stands for the Kicker  Subs Voice Coil #1 Postive post. AO+ is the MA audio Amp output positive.

 

AO+ to VC1+

VC1- to VC2+

VC2- to AO-

 

This shopuld give you 4 or 8 ohm depending on the 15" L7 setup.  Crutchfield does not carry the Kicker  L7 in 15" They do  have the L5 in 15".

 

If you know how to read a Volt Ohm Meter, set it to OHMs 20 and measure across VC1+ to VC1- and you should see between 1.5 and 5 ohms..  Do the Same with VC2+ to VC2-.  you should see the same voltage. Also read from the Voice coil metal housing to VC1+ , VC1-, VC2+, and VC2-. and you should not read any ohmage to the case. The meter should say OL, or -1.

Good luck.
