    Do you have stock or aftermarket stereo? If you have after market stereo, does it have sub output to your amp?

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

What kind of amp


It depends on the box you are installing them in. If you're going for sealed box they you can put 600-800 watts on them as long as you're careful with the gains and bass boost off. In a ported enclosure I wouldn't put more than 600 rms on them and still be careful with the gains. set your filter on your amp to about 80 hertz and match it on your source unit.

I have two Kicker dvc cvr's 12's and I want to hook them up to a Kenwood KAC-520 1000 watt amp. Whats the best wiring to wire these?


The best thing to do would be to get an amp installation kit, at an auto stereo store or Wal-Mart automotive department. It will have the wiring and connects that you'll need to wire everything up.

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

My friend jus bought 2 10 inch kicker l5s and when we hooked them up to his boss 1100 wat amp and hooked everything up they are moving but are not producing any sound. boss amp i do not know any thinbg...


it must be reversed polarity in coil voices of speakers check + - wires from amplifiers fit on coil voices of speakers try to get each speaker to 8 ohms wiring in serial the two coil voices n'd put in paralel both speakers in bridge mode output from amplifier to get most stable power ,

I have 2 alpine r type 12's hooked up to a kicker crossover and a NRG 2200 800 watt amp. they are wired series and parallel. when i turn it up the subs sound like the are fluttering. what is going on.


well my friend either your amp is not powerful enough to push your subs or you have a sub that is shorting out cause i just had the same problem with my 2 15 kicker cvr competition subs

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)
