It looks like you have the Power Acoustik OVN1-2000D Mono Block 2000 Watt amp. Monoblocks all feed speakers normally and cannot be bridged. So hookup your speakers as normally with + on the amp to + on the speaker and same with the -. Now for the speakers. I dont know too many Kicker speakers that are 1 ohm but the monoblock wont care. It will feed the 8,4,2 or 1 ohm speakers the same power. You just may get less response from the higher ohm speakers-less Bump Bump. You could wire your speakers in series to get a lower ohm load (2-4ohm speakers in series gives the amp a 2 ohm load) and get better response. Here is a site that answers many electrical and speaker questions. See # 57 on the right hand pane. Tells you exactly what will do best. Good luck. Electronics Answers Made Easy
if you cant see a physical cut or **** in the rubber surround or anywere else you can try to check the wires going from the plug to the actualy speaker itself on the back of the speaker if those are fine then its probably blown if its not that old you can try and contact jl and see if they will replace them i know kicker has some kind of replacement system in play not sure of jl
it depends if the amp is mono or stereo and if it is bridged. if it is bridged the amp cant handle the speaker the best way is to lower the level on the amp or connect it to only one channel. also you might want to check your ground cable use a thick one and make sure its making good contact with the chassis. this happened to me. luck
well if you hear a rattle sound its probably already blown...and the amp could be drawing too much power if the radio shuts off...make sure all your wiring is correct. also if your car is off and you turn it up it will most likely shut off cause the battery cant handle it. but as for the sub i think its blown. good luck
12W3v2-D4 sealed or ported enclosure use.
Sealed 1.25 ft3 23" x 14" x 10"
Ported 1.75 ft3 29" x 14" x 12.25" - Slot port size 1.375" x 12.5" x 23.75"
Fc: 47.4 Hz F3: 41.3 Hz Qtc: 0.83 Recommended Port Tuning: 30.3 Hz
They need 1.4-1.7 cubic ft per sub(ported box) less if it is sealed but I wouldn't recommend that, it sounds like ****. Google "Re audio box calculator" and use it to adjust your dementions to your application
So I am assuming that you have just setup/wired this up recently? Have you had this working before? You can have a look at the gain control on the amp & see if this have been set really low. This will help if the signal coming from your stereo is weak. The other thing I would suggest is to make sure that the amp can actually push this sub. I know what the specs say:
Remote gain control, mounting hardware & screws included
but I don't believe most of these. Many manufacturers embellish what their products can actually do! With the bigger more established brands such as JL Audio you will have no problems, their products have been tried & tested so much on the competition circuit.
