Question about Power Acoustik LT 14402 Car Audio Amplifier

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.

Best way to hook up a 15" solo baric L7 to a2400w cx 1200.1 kicker amp

The CX1200.1 amp is 2 ohm stable. Hopefully, you have the 4 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7. If so, connect the DVCs in parallel (both positives together, both negatives together) to the amp. This will maximize the output power of the amp. If you have the 2 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7, the best you can do is connect the DVCs in series to the amp. This will cut the output power in half, though.

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.

I have a Kicker Solo-Baric, L7, 12 inch subwoofer making a scratching noise. The cone is fine but the inside is not. Can i get this repaired? Kicker said no. This is a $250-300 sub. I hate to just throw it...

The bad news is that your voice coils could be fried up, basically mechanical failure. Might as well buy a new sub because replacing a voice coil means you got to rip the whole sub apart, very complicating.

well you can bring it into the place you bought it.. or a place where they sell kicker brand subs.. and ask them for a fix..
they'll either order you another one or.. they'll send it to be fixed.. depends on what it is(note) kicker L7 is made to be taken apart and fixed
