Diagnosis light I own a cadence A7 amp which is hooked up to two 12" kicker solo barics. Lately my amp has been turning on and off. Its not actually turning off but it stops delivering power to my subs and the red diagnosis light starts flashing. Im not sure exactly what the problem might be.

It could be an overheating or power issue. It may be that the two speakers are loading it too much, which will cause it to overheat. Does the light eventually go off and the sound return ? Do you have the speakers wired in series or parallel ? What's the impedance of the speakers and the minimum continuous load for the amp ?

Best way to hook up a 15" solo baric L7 to a2400w cx 1200.1 kicker amp

The CX1200.1 amp is 2 ohm stable. Hopefully, you have the 4 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7. If so, connect the DVCs in parallel (both positives together, both negatives together) to the amp. This will maximize the output power of the amp. If you have the 2 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7, the best you can do is connect the DVCs in series to the amp. This will cut the output power in half, though.

I have 2 12" solo-baric l7s but don't know what

Get a dual vented box for them. Not some cheap stuff either or it wont last. Then make sure theyre facing the back when you hook them up. I know its weird but they hit WAY harder that way trust me.

How to wire my kicker solar baric

All depends on your amp. Is it 1 ohm stable or not?
positive (pos) on voice coil 1 (vc1) to Pos on vc2 and negative (neg) on vc1 to neg on vc2. Then speaker wire from amp to one vc only = 1ohm load.
Pos from amp to Pos on vc1. Neg of vc1 to Pos of vc2. Neg of vc2 to amp = 4 ohm load.

Kicker L712 and rockford fosgate800a2 amp.weak prfmce

Is the box sealed air tight, leaking around speaker? plumbers putty works great. Amp may be good enough for the mtx but underpowered for the kicker. When kicker says 1000 watts that what it is (at a 14.4 volt input). Mtx is ok but may not tell the true watts. Check to see if the speakers are the same ohms also!
