Question about Kicker 12" Solo X Subwoofer S12X - 5000 Watts Dual 1 Ohm Car Speaker

1 Answer

Amp goes into protection

I have a Kicker Solo X 10 with a Kicker 1500.1 amp. This problem just started when I went for a long ride. I had the gain about 1/3 of the way and the bass boost at half. It started with kicking off and then it would turn back on then back off. I was going to pick up a kicker 2500.1 but want to know if the amp is going into protection because the speaker is asking for more. I actually hooked up a different sub that I had laying around and it kicked on with no problem. So I'm assuming it is the sub but the other sub i hooked up into was rated for 1200 watts. Amp stays on when nothing is hooked up. When everything is hooked up and everything is set to the minimum it is fine until I bring up the volume. So would like to make sure the subwoofer is ok before getting the new amp. Thanks for you help.

Make sure the impedance is right for the amp you're using. If you're using a 4ohm amp and a 2ohm sud that may be the problem. It may be overdriving the amplifer which is bad and can cause damage to the amp. Hope this helps.

@aol.comI have a kicker zx 1500.1 amplifier and a 15 inch L7 2ohms. Is the amp too much for it?


the amplifier is never to much for the sub. If the gain on the amp is turned up to much then that will pop the sub.

I have 2 15 inch L5 solo baric subs and need a amp?


the 15" l5 is rated at 750 watts rms so i suggest you get an amp with atleast that much power because if you get a amp weaker than that you run the risk of clipping your subs and blowing them

My kicker solo baric is moving to the bass but is not putting out any sound. I've swapped the subs to see if it was the sub but it wasn't. I believe it is the amp but im not sure. The amp is in protection...

I have two kicker l5 10's with a 1600 DB SERIES bass dont sound very clear how can i make it clear and loud ?


Make sure to tune the amp according to the subs. Turn all the levels down on the amp, then start with turning up the gain till you can tell the sub is struggling, from there turn up the crossover to around 120hz. Then adjust the gain again as now it will prolly be to high. Also it depends on how you have the subs wired up.
