Check wires that go into the speaker.Try turning the bass down than turn the volume up.If it sounds good when volumes down and as you turn it up it gets worse your amp isnt putting out enough power.whats the amp? power wire gauge should be same as ground.what gauge are they? Check ground to make shure you are getting a good connection & power wire isn't loose at any of the connection what size fuse are you running under the hood?

Check your RCA cables to make sure you are getting signal. The amp isn't in protection is it? Also, if you have a multimeter, you can check to see if you are getting any power out to the speakers. Also, check to make sure your subs aren't blown. Keep me posted.

I have a 2008 kicker l7 15 and it hits fine when the volume is mid range but if i go up on the volume it makes this poping sound the amp is tune down


You need to turn DOWN your LPF....(low pass filter). You are driving the sub with a higher Hz than it is rated for. If your amp (or head unit) doesn't have a good LPF, then you are going to do damage to the sub over time.

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.

Kicker Solo-Baric L7 S12L7 Car Subwoofer ... b-line or not ??


It is a normal subwoofer in a sense. These are very good subs. I had four in a regular cab s-10 and I just about died. I would recommend using a jl audio hd750/1. I was using two on my fouur subs and it worked great.

I have a brand new L7 is it blown?


check to make sure your box is securely sealed and that the box itself is not rattling. if not, most subs require a break in period where they can not be played full gain/full volume for the first 48 or so hours... did you break in your subs by paying it softly the first day and slowly turning your amps gain and receivers volume up the next couple of days. if not, it is likely blown

What Amp would i need to push three Kicker L7 12's?


Hello,

It depends on the specific subs and exactly what you want out of them. You have practically unlimited choices for amps.

The 10" L7 has a power range of from 30-600 watts RMS, the 12" from 50-750 watts, and the 15" from 100-1000 watts.

So if you have the 10's, you would want an amp that puts out at least 90 watts RMS and not more that 1,800. Unless you are really into SPL and have an unlimited budget, it's probably best to go somewhere in between.

Keep in mind that these Kickers need to be in a proper enclosure. They like a little more volume to work as compared to RF's or MTX's and some others.
