I just bought a cvr kicker 10' sub, hooked it up in my car replaceing a polk audio sub. The kicker keeps blowing my fuse. i have checked the wireing. i have an 800watt sony xplode amp. Please help


i am assuming that you bought this sub used? their could be a problem with your voice coil. the voice coil moves the cone of the speaker in and out. the problem with the voice coil is that it has become lose and is doping the impedance of the sub. A lose voice coil can be cause by over powering the sub. this problem is not fix able.

I have a Kicker Solo-Baric, L7, 12 inch subwoofer making a scratching noise. The cone is fine but the inside is not. Can i get this repaired? Kicker said no. This is a $250-300 sub. I hate to just throw it...


The bad news is that your voice coils could be fried up, basically mechanical failure. Might as well buy a new sub because replacing a voice coil means you got to rip the whole sub apart, very complicating.

Can a kicker cvr be fixed if it is blown if so how


Speaker lesson here. For space and time, I'll not get into certain nomenclature. Working from top to bottom, you have the cone, rubber surround, basket, spider, voic coil former, voice coil, and the magnet. The binding posts are connected to the tensil leads which connect to the spider and the voice coil. As the woofer is positively + and negatively - charged, it creates a magnetic field which moves the woofer up and down. There is a small gap between the magnet and the voice coil and former that's called a magnetic gap. This gap is what helps the speaker to move up and down, and creates the Xmax. The Xmax of the woofer is the maximum linear excursion the woofer can travel without causing permanent damage. With a blown speaker, normally the voice coil and voice coil former have been pushed out of the correct magnetic gap, usually around the top of the magnet. That means that the only way to fix it is to take the woofer completely apart. My suggestion is to just go and spend the money. A blown speaker is a sign of abuse, and voids warranties from the majority of companies out there to include Kicker.

It sounds like one of the voice coils is loose how do i get the plastic piece that connects to the spider out thanks


The "plastic piece" doesn't give any of us much to go on... there are many parts connected to the spider. Examples are the cone edge flexure and the centering flexure near the voice coil.

Most f these are held with adhesive.

If a voice coil is loose, it is undoubtedly damaged beyond repair. They rub the pole pieces and wear insulation off and short out blowing the amplifier.

Best to take it for re-coning or read up how to do it. Then you need to get a kit of the materials. There are adhesives, solvents, and new voice coil, centering flexure piece and usually the cover.

Only one voice coil is working on my L7 10" sub? All connections look good. 2 2ohm subs wired to 2ohms with a Kicker zx1000.1 mono amp. why?


If the tinsil wires all look good then chances are you broke a lead in the coil, the only way I know of to fix this is to order new voice coils and a new spider and replace them..

There are places on the web to order parts, you just need to take good measurments of the parts and relay them to the stores.

Hi there I have a problem with my kickers. Subwoofer l7 15" is blow,I was wondering if there is a repair kit avaible for it or not?


The only Kicker woofer that has a replacement cone/assembly is the SoloX woofers. All of those have what Kicker calls it's SPARE which is a field replacement assembly. They're designed for SPL competitions.

Rattle Problem w/ subwoofer


See the rear cone, spider and voice coil junction at rest and when cone is manually lifted outward/forward.Then you can easily tell if the spider has separated, as there is little pressure needed to move the cone manually, in and out of the gap. Compare that pressure to your good sub. If there is a notable difference in physical pressure to move either cone, you can rest assured that the spider is not moving or providing resistance to cone manipulation. This is a sure sign of spider/coil joint failure and can easily be sees as you conduct these tests. If that is what you see then repair it or change with new one

Voice coils


Hello. I do speaker reconing and amp rebuilds for a living and the L7's often suffer from tinsel leed wire breakage which can cause "poping" and "screaching" noises in the sub in various cone positions. You need to remove the sub and push straight down on the cone repeatly and determine if you can feel or hear crunching noises to make sure the voice coil and/or spider are not damaged. A faulty leed wire can usually be identified by a dark spot or obvious breakage. All of the L5 and L7 models can be successfully repaired as long as they are the older models that have a center cap in the cone. The newer capless models will have to have an upper brace cap glued to all of the cone's fingers and will have a rather ugly appearance. Leed wire overhauls usually run around $30.00 for the older models. Voice coil and spider overhauls run around $90.00.
