Question about Kicker Solo-Baric L5 Car Subwoofer
Hello i bought a new solo x 10 dual 2ohm and had a custom enclosure built from fine customworks and i hooked up two jbl crown amps bpx 1100 amps one to each coil 1100w rms and at first it smelled burnt for a few days i asked kicker they said it was the breakin period it sounded great , and as it played it sounded better. now 2 weeks later i played it not even too loud and had the bass all the way on the front auidopipe controler with speerate controls for bass , midbass ect and it started to smell burnt again and it got worse then the sub stopped working and just sounded scratchy and low so i shut it down and checked enclosure and white smoke was coming fro the port ! , i ask did i fry the voicecoil? because this is supposed to be a 5000w peak and 2500w rms spkr right? i asked kicker at the tiem of first burnt smell and they said its supposed to be like 1500w normal playing? so i told that to the enclosure builder and he said it was just kicker covering their *** with that sub?......i never thought that 2200w fro those 2 jbl ceon bpx 1100's would kill it, im thinking if i should have a similar enclosure built but for two solox 10's and use one jbl amp for each solox 10 insated if two jbl crown 1100's for one solo x 10? this way each sub gets the 1100w and never burn?......cna anyone hepl me?
There is no such speaker as a solo-X L5.
The Solobaric L5 is 450Watts RMS and 900 Peak.
Check your documentation, and no warranty except Massive Audio covers Burned Voicecoils as it is deemed customer abuse.
If it is a typo, and not an L5, your combination (as long as each is level matched) should be ok to run on that sub. When wiring it as you describe, the two amplifiers need to be identically matched in order for both coils to play at the same level.
Seek professional installations so your warranty is intact.
