If the amp is not kicking what it should it probably s a wattage problem. Check to see if the alternator has high enough voltage distribution. That is also why it keep shuting down.

Hi. I have 2 kicker rt 2ohm dvc subs. And 1 4ohm svc. Can i hook them up to a kicker cx 1200.1 amp. Pls help. Thnk u


Not if you want it to sound good. All speakers should match so equal sound comes out of each.

I have two Kicker dvc cvr's 12's and I want to hook them up to a Kenwood KAC-520 1000 watt amp. Whats the best wiring to wire these?


The best thing to do would be to get an amp installation kit, at an auto stereo store or Wal-Mart automotive department. It will have the wiring and connects that you'll need to wire everything up.

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 an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

How do you wire four 12 inch kicker cvr dual voice coil, to a 2400 watt 1 channel class d amp


Hello brysonford00,

The wiring configuration depends on what final impedance you want the amp to see. If the subs are 4ohm DVC's, you can wire them to present a 2ohm impedance or an 8ohm impedance. The diagrams are here. If your subs are 2ohm DVC's, the wiring is the same. The impedances will be 1ohm and 4ohms.

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.

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.
