Re: subwoofer

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.

How do I wire a kicker mono amp for my subwoofer

You'll need to take the low frequency from the crossover to drive the sub woofer amp otherwise you'll get full range out of the mono amp which will reduce the low frequencies presented to the sub spesker.

I have 2 12 inch kickers cvr and i have the rockfordfosgate g15002 hooked up and briged and it keeps cutting off

This is usually due to wiring the subwoofers to the wrong Ohm load. Normally those amps are rated at a 4 Ohm load. It sounds to me like they are wired down to a 2 Ohm load and bridged. It's a protection situation for the amp. If you have a multimeter, disconnect the woofers from the amp. Next, hook the meter up to the subwoofers where the wire or wires are coming out of the box. If you can give more information on the woofers, I can give you a better idea on what the numbers that you should see. It depends on if they are dual 2 or 4 Ohm woofers.

I have a pioneer 760 2 channel amp bridged to a kicker comp vr woofer. Amp has 8 gauge power and ground 18 gauge speaker wire run to woofer wooofer has 4 inputs two - two + . mine is run amp + to woofer +...

Ok, without knowing if you have the 2 or 4 Ohm Dual Voice Coil (DVC) version of the subwoofer, I'm going to assume you have the dual 4 Ohm version. The reason why is because, assuming you have the Pioneer GM-5300T amp, that amp does not support an 8 Ohm load. If you wire it in parallel, that would give you a 2 Ohm load. Parallel will be solid red connected to red/white dot, then to amp +, and solid black to black/white dot to amp -. Without knowing more specifics on the amp, that should fix the problem. Let me know what you get.

How to run the speaker wires to connect to the subwoofer? and does a sub woofer burn if you do not put the right ammount of watts to it for example having an kicker l7 connected to a three houndred watt...

i'm guessing you are having problems with the dual voice coil's so I will link you to the kicker wiring guide... that has the wiring options, you will need a pdf reader **** as adobe or foxit..

Under powering your subs won't hurt them but running a 15 inch l7 at 300 watts is not going to let the sub perform at peak, I would go with a 800 to 1000 watt amp.

15 inch l7 watt's are as follow

rms = 1000
peak = 2000

Kicker L712 and rockford fosgate800a2 amp.weak prfmce

Is the box sealed air tight, leaking around speaker? plumbers putty works great. Amp may be good enough for the mtx but underpowered for the kicker. When kicker says 1000 watts that what it is (at a 14.4 volt input). Mtx is ok but may not tell the true watts. Check to see if the speakers are the same ohms also!
