Question about MA Audio MA 1200XL Car Subwoofer
My speakers have 8 hook ups (4 positive, 4 negitve), and i have 1400w 2 channel ma audio amp does any body have a diagram, or manual.
Answer depends on what kind of Ohm Load your amplifier is capable of as a lowest allowed setting. ie if you have a 1400W at 4 Ohm amplifier, the connection would need to be different than a 1400W at 2 ohm amplifier. also, on the speaker what is the rated ohm load per coil since it's a quad coil speaker (should say somewhere on it's box, or in it's manual. I'd assume 4 ohm per coil) we'll do that math after you get those figures in to me.

Your Kicker L7 Ohms may be too low for the MA Audio Mono block amp. The MA Audio Amp is probably 2 Ohm Stable. The kicker will either be 2 ohm or 4 ohm Dual voice coil. To eliminate the low ohms as a possible threat to causing the map to go into Protect, Wire the kicker Voice Coils in Series. This adds the ohms, so that you either have 4 or 8 ohms.
I am using the following codes to show wiring. VC1+ stands for the Kicker Subs Voice Coil #1 Postive post. AO+ is the MA audio Amp output positive.
AO+ to VC1+
VC1- to VC2+
VC2- to AO-
This shopuld give you 4 or 8 ohm depending on the 15" L7 setup. Crutchfield does not carry the Kicker L7 in 15" They do have the L5 in 15".
If you know how to read a Volt Ohm Meter, set it to OHMs 20 and measure across VC1+ to VC1- and you should see between 1.5 and 5 ohms.. Do the Same with VC2+ to VC2-. you should see the same voltage. Also read from the Voice coil metal housing to VC1+ , VC1-, VC2+, and VC2-. and you should not read any ohmage to the case. The meter should say OL, or -1.
