Question about Performance Teknique ICBM-779 Car Audio Amplifier

Subs dont sound as loud as they did in old car

I recently put my kicker cvr's in my new Jeep and wirered everything the same way i did in my old car, but took out a capacitor i had and wired from the battery straight to the amp. the amp and subs work, but arent very loud and distort easy. when i pull one of the RCA cables out, the one subwoofer that remains plugged in is louder than when both subs are plugged in. and its the same way when i plug them both in again and take the other rca cable out. Help!!!

    You will have this type of problem when one woofer is wired incorrectly. Check all wiring from the amp to the speaker terminals.

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

2 kicker cvr 12's in prewired kicker box with 1 wire terminal, kicker cx1200.1 amp. Whats the best way to wire this combo?


Well you really can't run both speakers on one term. because you will over heat the amp , unless your amp is rated at twice the capability of your subs , Then if so , Try positive to one sub , then neg. to the other sub , then bridge the remaining positive to the remaining negative terminal , But it is really best to get a two channel amp for your subs !!!

  • Yea, you blew the voice coil. Pressing on the cone where you are is hitting the spot that is making the coil connect again. Just like a shorted wire. Sometimes you can bend it and get a connection. You are gonna have to replace the sub.

I have two kicker cvrs 2003 model wired at a 2 ohm load, one


Sounds like the sub is blown. Swap the two subs and see if the sound comes from the other sub in the original location as well. If not, then you have a bad sub. If the bad sound happens with both subs then you need to look at wiring and the Amp.

Wireing two dual 4 ohm kicker cvr 15s on a memphis pr1000 at a 1 ohm load. I trying to get these kickers to hit harder. Do I need a bigger amp or what?


CVR series do not have large power handling capabilities.
Your subs will melt before the amplifier is used to its full potential.
If the subs arent in a ported enclosure - do that.
They both handle 500w rms - so the pr1000 is perfect.
bass response is all in the enclosure!

well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

How do you wire 4 kicker cvr dual voice coil 4ohms to a 1500.1 kicker mono block 1 channel amp, they sound distorted when i turn them up, how should i wire them?


Hello antjobe,

According to Kicker the 1500.1 is only stable to 2ohms. So you will want your 4 CVR's to present a 2ohm or higher impedance to the amp.

The best configuration would be to wire the voice coils in series (each sub 8ohms) and then parallel all of the subs to the amp (2ohms). Here's a link to the diagram.

Hope this helps.
