I had the same problem when i hooked up my memphis 500. i called the local audio store and they told me to make sure i had a good ground wire and keep the power and the remote wire away from each other. if they are to close they cause interference making the whining and popping noises. running your power and remote wires on opposite sides is what i had to do.

    Try switching you RCA's and if that doesn't work try a heavier set.

I have 3 L7 kicker 15" subs will my audio pipe 1500 watt run them


Well the L7 15'' solo-baric subs are rated at 1000 watts RMS, so that would be 3000 watts of RMS amplifier power you would need to supply to adequately power all of them. I also suggest that an amp capable of producing more power than what is needed is usually better in order to prevent the amplifier from running at maximum capacity for long periods. In short your amplifier will power those subs, however you will only be able to supply 1500 RMS watts to the three subs so you will only be pushing the subs to 50% of their rated capacity while using 100% of amp capacity which will make your amp run "hot" and your subs run "weak", but if you're in a pinch it will work. Your best bet in this situation is to wire the setup so that the subs and amp are operating at minimum ohm stable impendence (usually 2 ohm). Seeing that you have 3 subs begging for 3,000 watts of power and you are only going to give it half of what it wants, I would suggest upgrading the amp or at least buying another one so that you can bridge the wattage and redistribute to all three subs with the correct impendence.

I have a lanzar vibe pro VBP251 2200 watts and two 12" kicker comp subs. What do I set the amp on


You need to figure out what ohm capacity is of the amp and the speakers. It then comes down to wiring.

So I just bought a kicker cx 300.1 mono block amp to run my 10 inch comp d 4 ohm 300 watt sub. I ran it parallel and it smells like the coils are burning. Help


That's only normal for the burn in period. Make sure you're not running it in 2 ohm by wiring the sub wrong. That amp is not really 2 ohm stable for a sustained period

Is my Pyramid 300 watt mosfet pb 772 compatible with a 10" kicker comp sub?


If the output impedance of your Pyramid amp is approximately the same as the input impedance of your Kicker, it should work.

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!

I have a Hyundai accent 2013 with a kicker 2 12"


Alright first suggestion is to get a different amp. Cause for one a mono amp is meant for just one signal (one speaker) also you need to make sure that you get an amp that is powerful enough to run the subs. You need to find out what the RMS of both speakers is. From just a few moments online I found a Kicker 12" Comp. subwoofer has an RMS of 50-150 watts. So you need to find a 2-Channel amp that has at least 300 but you should get one that has at least 400 just to be save. You can find a Dual 2-Channel 400W amp at Walmart for $55 and get the 600W wiring kit for $25. You should just use the inside speakers for mids and highs and allow the subwoofers to run just low frequencies. That way everything will sound correct, and not ruin your subs if the do not have a voice coil in them. It's fairly simple to set up a system with an amp and subs, you just need to make sure you have the right parts.

I have a "12 kicker


If it is the amplifier that is shutting on and off:
Check to make sure the power and ground wires for the amp are secure, with no fraying, knicks or exposed wire. Check your fuses and connections to make sure everything is correct. Also look at the grounding location. be sure there is exposed metal around the grounding point (paint may cause intermittent power problems). Lastly, the amplifier's remote wire may be improperly secured to the wiring harness. Check the harness for exposed wire grounding out connections.
If the amplifier is continuously on, the subwoofer may be to blame. Check and double check wiring schematics to ensure correct ohms rating.

Had the subwoofer tested at an audio shop but they wanted to sell me a woofer. It makes no sound at all. A power issue? there was no problems with the 300 watt Kicker amp.


if the speaker cone moves it should produce some sound if it doesn't move when power is applied then the voice coil is frozen.

not really a power issue unless its a "powered sub" and if that's the case then you should not be running in high level sound using speaker wire (especially off a 300 w amp) but instead a low level signal via RCA cable.

My friend jus bought 2 10 inch kicker l5s and when we hooked them up to his boss 1100 wat amp and hooked everything up they are moving but are not producing any sound. boss amp i do not know any thinbg...


it must be reversed polarity in coil voices of speakers check + - wires from amplifiers fit on coil voices of speakers try to get each speaker to 8 ohms wiring in serial the two coil voices n'd put in paralel both speakers in bridge mode output from amplifier to get most stable power ,
