Why would i spend a 100 to 120 dollars on a car amp?
Why would i spend a 100 to 120 dollars on a amp just to run one 8 inch kicker subwoffer? i dont want 97000 watts in my car i just want enough power for a basic car stereo the .boss amp is 38 dollars 200 watts 2009 version the ssl amp is 59.00 2009 verision 400 watts whats wrong with buying a amp that has the same specs as a name brand i'm quite sure there are a lot of people who have boss amps in their car everybody keeps reccomending name brands wouldnt a boss amp play just as well as a kicker if you hook it up correctly if boss products were not quality i dont believe they would have any business!!

Re: why would i spend a 100 to 120 dollars on a car amp?
Any amp will work with any speaker, you just need to make sure it is a mono amp if you are running 1 speaker and a stereo amp wither 2 or 4 channel if you are running 2 or 4 speakers, the ohm rating on the amp should match the speakers also, on the back of the speaker it has the ohm rating, most will be 8 ohm, but you still find some 4 ohm, depending on the speaker if it has a lot of throw (the in and out movement) you may want a higher wattage amp so you get clean sound, it is up to you.... if you are installing lower price amps to you may hear engine wine or noise while car is running so a grounde loop isolator installed on the system will remedy that... also with the amp the directions will tell you the ohm rating of the wire to use, follow that.... and keep the ground short and clean where ever you put it.. try not to go directly off the battery cause you will get a lot of noise... hope this helps..

yes, the 10ZX750.1 is capable of running two L5's at two ohms in either a ported or sealed box. Just be sure to wire it up to suit your needs correctly (if you need to know how i can help)
and make sure that your box dimensions match what kicker specify. the L5 is actually one of the subs that kicker reccommend for that amp.
Hope I helped , and please dont forget to rate.
To do this they MUST be wired in parallel, IE: Plus to Plus, Negative to Negative. 2 4 OHMS in parallel is about 2 OHMS in series it would be 8 OHMS... series is positive to negative. Are you using a crossover network?
nice radio bud. also want to say that the kicker amp will take the input from the stereos rca subwoffer out port on the back of the stereo, i have read about your radio before answering your questions to ensure acuracy.
Taken Directly from your manual
Press and hold the SEL button until LCD display “DSP OFF”. Press SEL button again and LCD display “WOOFER OFF’. Rotate volume to activate the subwoofer control function, then leave the unit idle for your desired setting to take effect. Make sure the unit is connected to an external amplifier.
RCA Line Out
The RCA Output Jack is on the back of the unit on the right side. (See figure 1) This output is for connecting an amplifier, equal- izer, or other audio component that requires a pre-amp out connection. (Red = Right, White = Left) Follow the manufacturers in- structions for the audio component that you are connecting
The Subwoofer Output Jack is on the back of the unit on the right side.
on page 8 of 22 on this ebook illustarted the proper wireing configurations for an aopmilifier. note: the remote wire must be conencted to the radio to the amp remote to allow radio to trun amp off and on good luck.
All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?
