No way unless you are able to bridge the amp. Check the gain level too, you can turn it up but woudn't recommend more then 3/4 of the way.

Im trying to figure out how i should wire my Kicker S12L5 sub to my Kicker Zr360 amp. should i wire it for 1ohm and bridge it or what if you could help it would be much appreciated thanks. ...


What is the wattage of the sub? What is the power output of the amp, bridged & not bridged? If the bridged power output will NOT exceed the rated power of the sub then you should bridge it. If it will exceed the rated power of the sub then don't. 8)

I have 2 15 inch L5 solo baric subs and need a amp?


the 15" l5 is rated at 750 watts rms so i suggest you get an amp with atleast that much power because if you get a amp weaker than that you run the risk of clipping your subs and blowing them

I want a reliable system.


if you bought that equipment today then your answer is yes your amp will power the subs but if i was you and you want more bass I would go with a two channel amp or even a mono block amp that will be 1 ohm stable and if you decide to do that you might want to get subs that are dual 4 ohm voice coils and run them in series that will get you 1 ohm of resistance

Hello. My Kicker kx200.4 is acting funny. The red display light on front/top of the amp is turning on for a second and then turning off, repeatedly. The light on the side (power) is also turning on, red...


the amp is a 200 Watt by 4 im guessing and its doing that because its going into protection mode unhook the subs if it stops then 1 you have a bad sub or 2 the subs are too much for the amp if an amp is rated 200w per chanel its 200 max about 75 rms or 75 normal constant power

I have 1500 kicker amp and 2 15L7 4oh want to hook up


you can't get full power out of it because those subs can be wired series/parrallel to a 1 ohm load or just series to a 4 ohm load and you don't want to put a 1 ohm load on this amp... you need dual 2 ohm subs for this amp... I have the same setup but with dual 2 ohm subs and it is rediculous... you need to buy different subs that are dual 2 ohm or buy an amp that is stable at 1 ohm... you will only get 750 rms out of a kicker 1500.1 at 4 ohms so u will do more harm than good to your subs.

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ

Kicker Amp problem


Are you sure it is correctly grounded? Double check.

Connect a voltmeter to the power source to check for between 11-13 Volts. Make sure the main 30 AMP fuse on the Kicker is not blown.

What amp to use


recommended maximum for the sub boxes is 1600/800 here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.kicker.com/06/tech-support/manuals/manuals/2007/2007%20CompVR%20Box%20d01%20Web.pdf If you really wanted to get the maximum from your subs then a zx750, or possibly a zx1000 would be the ideal choice. Either amp you suggested will work, but you will have more fun with a 750 which should do fine. Hope this helps :)

Power Protection Circuit (SORT) Engaged


Umm a ohm meter would help you here. Double check the wires from the sub to the amp...make sure its not shorting out. Try starting the amp without the wires on the terminals...if the protection shows up then there is a short inside the unit and it will need to be replaced/repaired.
