Question about Power Acoustik LT 14402 Car Audio Amplifier

Open Question

PowerAcoustik LT1440/2, 12" Solo Baric L7

Recently I bought a LT1440/2 online, but i accidently threw away the empty box, including the owner's manual. I have the amp wired with Power Acoustik 2 Gauge 3000 Watt Amp Kit. The amp is bridged to a 12" Solo Baric L7. The remote wire was wired to the amp remote wire on my wiring harness, the power wire was run to the termnal, and I wired the ground using a bolt on the deck lid of the inside of the trunk. I turned the key forward and the red protection light came on, but after a few seconds it turned on and all was working smoothly for about five minutes, then it kicked itself into protect mode while changing songs. So I rewired the ground to the car's ground wire, where one wire was already grounded to a bolt on the inside rear of the trunk towards the bumper. I turned it back on and the red protect light came on again, this time it never switched back on, so I then turned the gain down to 50% from about 65-70%. Tried again, it still didn't work. So then I switched the remote wire from the amp remote wire on the harness to the hot(red) wire, thinking that I might have fried my remote wire on the CD player. Tried again and still got the protection light. Need answers or help troubleshooting.

SOURCE: how do you fix a blown fuse circuit in a lt1440

Just replace the blown fuse with one of the same amp rating... If the fuse keeps blowing you'll wanna recheck your wiring and make sure you don't have a short somewhere.

So I have the first kickers that came out the 15 will a 800 watt amp push um without eather blowin out

If you are referring to the Kicker L5 solo-baric subwoofer, then an 800 watt peak amp will not blow even one of those subs. The L5 is capable of handling 1000 watts peak and 500 wrms. An 800 watt peak amp will usually have around 400 wrms. Underpowering the subwoofer will not hurt the amp or the sub(s).

I hooked my Hifonics BXi 1610 Brutus series amplifier up to my 2 12" Kicker Solo Baric L7 subs. Everything turns on on the amp but its barely pushing my subs. Ive tried tuning it and it still doesn't push...

wire the subs if thair dual 4 ohm . in parallel. red to red and black to black. giving it a 2ohm load. do the other sub the same. and conect it on the amp . turn your gain about 12oclock and db level less than 12oclock and your frequnecy around 80-100. and that should work

Need amp for 2 15 l7 4 0hm

Hello jasonjohnson,

There would be more amp choices if those L7's had the 2ohm voice coils, allowing you to series the coils and then run the subs parallel to the amp for a 2ohm load. As it is, you'll probably have to run them as either 1ohm and have limited amp choices, or as 4ohm and settle for a little less power.

An absolutely excellent amp to use at 4ohm would be the Alpine MRP-M1000. At Crutchfield this one is on sale for $347. For more power, and an amp stable to 1ohm, I would recommend the Rockford-Fosgate Punch 1000-1bd, a "factory refurbished" model is available at Crutchfield for $349.99. It's $700 new.

Both of these amps have adequate power for 2 L7's, but the RF will definitely be the better power choice. Both are also well respected names in mobile audio and the prices are reasonable.

If you have deeper pockets and want to push the subs really hard, a Rockford-Fosgate Punch 1500-1bd will put a full 750 watts RMS to each sub.

Hope this helps.

What Hz do i use

The best way to set up an amp is to start with everything on 0 Turn your gain all the way off, then turn the stereo up as loud as u would normally listen to it. With the stereo on, slowly turn the gain up until it sounds the way you want it. As for the Hz settings, for a sub you should have the crossover set to lpf, and the z knob adjusts what frequency your sub will play. Since you have a 10" sub, I wouldn't put it much below 125, because tens can't produce ultra low bass and it could damage the sub. Hope his helps :)

500/1 v2 and one kicker VS12L7

It will work fine. This amp is stable to 1.5 Ohms, but is designed to put out about the same amount of power at 2 or 4 Ohms (unique).
