You need to lower the Gain just a little.

    Very well could be. The first thing that I do when I purchase a New Vehicle is Replace the Radio and Build from there. Except for the Scion Xa that I bought-It had a Pioneer System from Factory! You cannot rely on the Factory Installed Radio's Once you have started Connecting Amp's and Crossover's Because they were not Built for that. I would get a Head unit and Install kit and Start Fresh from the Head Unit Back.

If they are single voice coil and are 4 ohm you can bridge your amp and run both speakers off of it so your amp sees a 2 ohm load....better bass that will hit harder....(series wiring) look it up on google....

My 2006 12" L7 kicker sub isn't working like it should. It simply sounds like an extra speaker and produces minimal bass. All the wires are correct, I have checked and rewired it several times just to make...


On the amp there should be High pass and a low pass setting. Put it on low pass cause if its on high pass or in between it produces normal noted like a speaker. Low pass will filter out all the high frequencies.

Db drive vs kicker


The Kickers are the way to go here- they move more air because naturally a 15 inch square has more area than a 15 inch circle- thus more air moved =greater spl =LOUDER. The only thing that might get some equality between the two is if the db drive round sub has a far greater xmax that is the linear movement of the cone from start to full excursion-IF the db drive has drastically larger xmax than it could possibly outperform the L7 because of greater cone excursion which also =more air moved=louder---- haha thats a tricky one but ya got me wondering too so let me know what you find out please-Ive always been a kicker fanatic so im probably biased towards their products-never heard nothing bad about db drive though either im in salt lake city i dont know of anywhere out here that even carries their products so i have nothing to reference by except kicker L7's kick asssssssssss

Green light turns red on hard notes with kicker 750 mono amp


First off, never, ever replace a blown fuse with a bigger one (especially one that is almost twice as big) unless it's an absolute emergency. Most of the time, the reason a fuse blows is because of a problem with the device (in this case, the amp). By installing a larger fuse, there's a very good chance the problem will become permanent (i.e. busted amp).

The amp could be going into an overcurrent mode when the bass hits and power cycling itself to try and reset the problem. If this is the case, take it to a local electronics repair shop and see what they can do.

It's also possible the input voltage to the amp is dropping too low during the bass hit, making the amp restart. Try putting a 1.0F or higher capacitor on the battery to buffer the power during the bass hits.

I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe


kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.

ZX1500.1 Major Problem


If the subs are pushed to their limits straight out and remain there as long as the amp is on, the amplifier probably has shorted output transistors. If the speakers are moving in and out like they would be on a bass note, there may be something wrong with the shield ground of the head unit.

My kicker amp turns off


It sounds like you may have the load impedance too low. How many voice coils per woofer? How many ohms is each coil? If you have DVC woofers, are the coils for each woofer wired in series or parallel? Are the speakers wired in series or parallel. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
