No - the coil cannot be replaced on any kicker speakers except the SOLO X
It is a proprietary part. Even kicker will not repair a speaker that is out of warranty.
You have a doorstop now (or passive radiator).
i am an authorized kicker dealer and get MANY questions about L5 and L7s.
I have (4) 15" L7s in my garage - hoping - someday - they will release spare cone assemblies. But for right now - they are displays only.

Ihave 2 kiker 15 inch solo l5 1500 max 750 rms so what kind power , how many chanal am.p i need ? im confused......


If they are 2 ohms I would recommend dropping to 1 ohm for maxium out put. To drop to 1 ohm you are going to run the 2positives and 2negitives together in either a bridged or monoblock 1500w amp. After doing so i would get the spects for the speakers freq. ect. or go to a quality audio store and most of them will help tweek it for free. I would recommend Kicker ZX1500.1amp for best compatiblity.

Kicker L5 not working


If the coil on the inside is looking ripped, it must be rubbing against the inner walls of the magnet. check of failure of continuity of the coil. if open and rubbing then you will need to replace the coil. I shall guide you through this job. carefully disconnect the coil lines to the frame, then using a good sharp tool remove the side suspension and the inner spider that suspends the coil. now you can remove the whole assmebly. if the coil is damaged then slowly cut out the coil, get a replacement of the same diameter from the spare parts shop. if not available you will need to have some experience to wind the coil in the same diameter with the same SWG. Once you get the coil fix it carrefully to the speaker diaphragm centrally, then centrally place into the speaker mountings with the coil just in the gap, not rubbing against the magnets. now you can glue out the spider and suspensions. there you are. Good luck .

I have bought a Behringer Europower 6000 mixer amp. I have 2 Peavey Pro 15 cabs and a subwoofer for each side. They are all rated at 4ohms. The guy in the shop told me to put the amp into the subs then...


No !!!!... you don't want to go below 4 ohms. Paralleling each sub and the Pro 15 would be like 2 ohms...

With those cabinets, either have a second amp driving the subs from the mono or main 1/4 inch jacks out of the mixer or the other thing is a kludge to series each PAIR, that is series the Pro15's to form 8 ohms and the subs to get 8 ohms and run the 6000 as a split between the A and B. The pan controls would not be useful this way at all.

I would recommend using a seperate amp for the subs.

Whoever that shop is wants you to burn up that unit so they can repair... don't do it... BE VERY careful to ensure speaker leads are solid as that amp can destroy itself if the speaker leads short or momentaarily break... I repair these amps... I know...

I have a jl 500/1 pops fuses some times could it be im pulling too much power from the battery because i dont have a cap or extra battery im running at 2ohm with a 15 inch kicker l5


Seems like the KICKER is pulling to much power try to knock it back up to 4ohm and see what happens. If its fine that way then you might need a bigger amp.

I need to know how to bridge a a 4 ohm 15 inch sub down to1or2ohm


Hello solo7908,

With a single 4ohm DVC sub there are only two possible wiring solutions, parallel the voice coils for a final 2ohm load or series the voice coils for an 8ohm load. In your case, you want to wire them in parallel, both positives and both negatives connected to the amp terminals.

Here are the diagrams: (-) to (-) and then to the amp - (+) to (+) and then to the amp. Impedance = 2ohms.

Hope this helps.

Solo x 10 dual 2 ohm smells burnt and smoke


there is no such speaker as a solo-X L5.
The Solobaric L5 is 450Watts RMS and 900 Peak.
Check your documentation, and no warranty except Massive Audio covers Burned Voicecoils as it is deemed customer abuse.
If it is a typo, and not an L5, your combination (as long as each is level matched) should be ok to run on that sub. When wiring it as you describe, the two amplifiers need to be identically matched in order for both coils to play at the same level.
Seek professional installations so your warranty is intact.

Hi yeahonda,

 

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.

Good luck.
