Yes it will drive the subs. The one thing you need to know is what type of sound you're looking for. If you're looking for a crisp clean sound. Then you need to turn the games all the way down turn your volume up at the volume level that you think you'll be listening to it at and crank up the games until you reach distortion which is called clipping at that. Turn it back until the clipping stops and that should be optimal too. Most car audio shops will tune a vehicle for next to nothing just so they can get in your car and crank on it good luck
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS

SOURCE: bridging to 12 inch kicker competition subs to my 1000 watt alpine 4 channel amp

I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!

SOURCE: 2 12" kicker L7 subs. zx1500.1 amp. subs quit when i turn it up

It is possible that you are not providing enough current to the amp. It will go into protect mode if the current sags. What do you have running as a power cable. And also, your ground should be just as big and bonded very well to the body.

SOURCE: best amp for Kicker Sub

Hello dalex7,

The Kicker 08ZX400.1 would be a great amp for your subwoofer. It will work into a 4ohm load with no problems.

But you can buy an amp with more power, looks better, has a smaller footprint, and cost less than the 400.1. I'd look at the Alpine MRP-M500. Take a look at it here at Crutchfield. The M500 is also easy to install, runs cool, and is very efficient.

Hope this helps.

What is the best way to wire two kicker comp r 12' s to a two channel amp for max bass?


First, you need to know whether you have the 2 ohm DVC subs or 4 ohm DVC subs. Second, you need to know the minimum impedance the amp can handle (most are 2 ohm, some are less). Putting two voice coils in parallel will cut the total impedance in half (e.g. 2x 4 ohm voice coils in parallel = 2 ohms total). Putting subs in parallel will also cut the impedance in half.
At one end of the spectrum, you could put the 2 ohms DVCs in parallel, then parallel the two subs, and bridge the 2 channels of the amp. That would put 0.5 ohms impedance on the 1 bridge amp channel. If the amp can do 0.5 ohms x 1ch, do it. Otherwise, you may have to run the subs on separate channels.

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!

2 kicker cvr 12's in prewired kicker box with 1 wire terminal, kicker cx1200.1 amp. Whats the best way to wire this combo?


Well you really can't run both speakers on one term. because you will over heat the amp , unless your amp is rated at twice the capability of your subs , Then if so , Try positive to one sub , then neg. to the other sub , then bridge the remaining positive to the remaining negative terminal , But it is really best to get a two channel amp for your subs !!!

I have a Hyundai accent 2013 with a kicker 2 12"


Alright first suggestion is to get a different amp. Cause for one a mono amp is meant for just one signal (one speaker) also you need to make sure that you get an amp that is powerful enough to run the subs. You need to find out what the RMS of both speakers is. From just a few moments online I found a Kicker 12" Comp. subwoofer has an RMS of 50-150 watts. So you need to find a 2-Channel amp that has at least 300 but you should get one that has at least 400 just to be save. You can find a Dual 2-Channel 400W amp at Walmart for $55 and get the 600W wiring kit for $25. You should just use the inside speakers for mids and highs and allow the subwoofers to run just low frequencies. That way everything will sound correct, and not ruin your subs if the do not have a voice coil in them. It's fairly simple to set up a system with an amp and subs, you just need to make sure you have the right parts.

Kicker comp 12'' subwoofer swingarms snapped


when you say swing arms i assume you are talking about the wires connecting the terminal (where you connect the wires to the sub) to the voice coil (the center of the sub).


If these are broken it is tricky to solder new wires back on. If your sub is still under warranty i would suggest sending it back to them. below is there number and business hours.

How do I tune my KICKER 08ZX1000? I have the amp running to alpine type r 12 inchs at 2 ohms but I don't know where the bass boost , gain, and crossover knobs should be pointing or what one to turn up...


To start, turn the gains on your amp all the way down. Bass boost should be off (this us used if you listen to your subs at low volume, the boost will heat your amp up quick if you use at high volume). Then turn the volume on your headunit up to 3/4 full. Make sure the filter on your amp is on low pass. The crossover point should be at it's lowest too. With all these in place, you can begin turning up the gain. You will have to decide at what point to move the crossover point. Since there are different styles of music, you will have to listen to where you feel notes are "dropping off" from the music. Adjust the crossover point to your liking, but remember that subs were made to reproduce low frequencies. Hope this helps

Wehen I turn the volume up my subs destort and it seems like my subs are bogging down..I have 2 kicker comp 12 vrs


if they are 4 ohm dual voice coil wire them to 1ohm and bump do not turn gain all the way you will fry the amp and if you really want to make them kick . write each 1 to 2 ohms and get another amp they are not getting enough wattage for the volume you are trying to run them at and could be the way you have it tuned .

Kicker sub


Ummmm your sub is 100% fried!!! your voice coil melted and, got warped and the scraping noise you hear is it rubbing your pole piece. The only solution is a new sub. If its under warranty they may fix it they may not, it depends on the warranty. So Sorry dude but the sub's done...
