Question about Car Audio & Video
Just keep the sub woofer at the back side off the car and you can wire them with power supply coming for the speakers
Posted on Jul 03, 2009
The subs can be wired "parralel" or in a "series". it depends on the ohm rating of the speakers and the amp. Most amps can only go down to 2ohms (mono) so it depending on the ohm ratings of the speakers when wired in a series vs parralel that will decide how to wire them. you can always take the safe route and just wire the positives of each to positive on the amp and the negatives to the negatives on the speaker terminals. Do you have the speakers model numbers?
Thanks for contacting Fixya

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.
