Question about Kicker Solo-Baric L7 S15L72 Car Subwoofer
I know how to drop a 2 ohm kicker to i ohm but i will get two, 2 ohm subs and i have a 3000x1 planet audio 1 ohm stable. if i drop the two kicker down to 1 ohm each will they add up too 2 ohm or remain i ohm even though it will be two subs at 1 ohm. if any one has any better suggestion help me i have yet to buy the subs...
If you buy the 4 ohm subs you can drop each of them to 2 ohm and then down to 1 ohm between the two of them. going with the 2 ohm no matter how you wire them you will either get 2 ohms 4 ohms or 8 ohms. hope this helps by the way the 4 ohm solobaric and the 2 ohm are both the same price.

Ok, I'm not sure where the 8 ohms came from, but you cannot make two DVC woofers equal 8 ohms. The problem is that you cannot get any lower than a 2 ohm load from the subs. You will only get a 1 ohm load from running two amps, one to each sub. Keep in mind, that's only IF you want to get that 1 ohm load.

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.
