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.

No sound from subwoofer Solo Baric L7


check the resistance of the sub with a digital multi meter, make sure you dissconect the sub from everything before you check the resistance, if your sub is supposed to be 4 ohms than it should be between 3-5 ohms, if it is under 1 that the sub is blown, while the sub is dissconected from the amp, turn the system on, does it still go into protection?

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

Amp goes into protection


make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

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.

My kicker 10'' L7 sub works when the volume is low, when the volume is turned up the sub. stops working. Why?


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?

My L7 won't hit.


unfortunately chances are it is a bad sub. but I would hook it up to someone elses amp and then see if it works. Use same power or less for test. If it dont work then I hope you have a warrenty.

Kicker sub wont work


Im guessing that it is possibly blown... either you ran too much power to it, or it was hooked up wrong... you should unscrew the sub from the box and look inside to make sure that it is connected correctly.... positive to positive, negative to negative,,, if they so much as touched then the L7 could very well be blown.... smell the magnet and if you smell a burnt smell... it is blown... maybe turn your amp down a little... its possible that it is also in protect mode because you are running too many watts to the amp. Feel free to ask if you have any other questions.... Please rate! :D And good luck... i really hope its not burnt out. that stuff is not cheap.
