With 2 ohm dvc a sub can output either a 1 or 4ohm load.therefore with 2 subs you end up with 2ohm or 8ohm load.Of course you'll use the 2ohm connection which is this.....

Take one sub and connect the (-) with the other (-) and the (+) with the (+).
Do the same with the other sub.Each sub now carries out a 1ohm load and you end up with 2 pairs of cable.Now take one(+)and put it on the amp.Take the (-) from the OTHER pair(this is critical) and connect it on the amp.You will still have a(-) from the first pair and a (+) from the other pair!Well....connect them together!!!Thus you'll have a 2 ohm load on the amp!

    No it won't!Just be careful with the power cables to be thick enough(4 gauge power and ground cables).Also mind the sub box because Kicker's L5 require a rather large box if there is a port.If it is a sealed box the volume of it is approximately 55-70litres(inside volume).

    In conclusion a smaller amp can damage voice coils a lot easier than a larger amp due to dc distortion which appears when the amp it's on the limit.

I got 2 pcs of kicker 12L7, one is 2ohm and the other is 4ohm DVC. in there any chance i can run them together with one amplifier? i got a venom VD2600S and venom 1600.D, will it be ok if i use each...


Run the amp in stero Run the 2ohm to one chanel, Wire the dvc 4ohm to run 2ohm + to + - to - to the other chanel and you should be fine.
If you had a 1ohm stable amp you could run both speakers wired 2ohm to a mono amp and have a 1ohm set up and double the power!

I have my l7 solo baric on series mode they sund


Hello rigo11785,

The MTX Thunder 1501D is stable at 1ohm and outputs 1,500 watts RMS into that impedance. An L7 with 2ohm DVC's would present a 1ohm load if wired in parallel and would allow the amp to produce more power than into the 4ohm series load. The problem is that the L7's maximum power handling rating is only 1,000 watts RMS, so if you wire the coils in parallel, you'll very likely overdrive the sub and perhaps damage it. Now, if you bought another L7 and ran the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel, that would be a 2ohm load and well within their power handling capability.

With that amp and sub, I'd recommend leaving the voice coils in series.

Hope this helps.

Need to wire two dvc 15 in kicer l7 to 1 ohm


Hello goldy6569,

To wire the L72's at 1ohm, simply connect both +'s and -"s on each sub together. Then connect to your amp terminals.

With 2ohm DVC's, you can have either a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. The diagrams are here (I know it's the website of a Kicker competitor, but their "wiring wizard" is simply the best).

Hope this helps.

CORRECT CONNECTION TO AMP BEING A FOUR TERMINAL SPEAKER


Hello i_starling,

The Kicker L7's come in either 2ohm or 4ohm dual voice coil (DVC) versions.

Whatever amp they are connected to, you need to know both the impedance of your L7's and the impedance of your amp. The L7's dual voice coils can be wired to provide a total of four different loads:

2ohm coils in parallel = 1ohm load
2ohm coils in series = 4ohm load
4ohm coils in parallel = 2ohm load
4ohm coils in series = 8ohm load

Your best connection would be the one that results in a final impedance load that is supported by the amp.

Hope this helps.

Wiring my 2 L7 with a kicker 1000times1


Run the subs in series then bridge the amp. So run the normal + to - to the one sub then hook up a spare wire (not connected to the amp) to the same + and - connections. Then run the spare wire to the + and - of the other sub. This will tie the 2 together so you can bridge the ampfor more power instead of using 2 seperate channels.

Wire my kicker


This will help you :)


Below is a link to the subwoofers manual where is clearly states how to wire it all up, it includes both the 2ohm DVC and 4 ohm DVC models.

huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS
