I have one 10in. Kicker L7. and a Kenwood KAC-929 1000 watt amp. What are all the wires i should buy that can make this setup run?


Need an amp kit up to 1000 watts, speaker wire. Amp kits have most of the wires needed such as, power, ground, and remote wire. As well as all the connectors needed.

How to run the speaker wires to connect to the subwoofer? and does a sub woofer burn if you do not put the right ammount of watts to it for example having an kicker l7 connected to a three houndred watt...


i'm guessing you are having problems with the dual voice coil's so I will link you to the kicker wiring guide...

http://kicker.com/sites/default/files/SoloBaricL72006.pdf that has the wiring options, you will need a pdf reader **** as adobe or foxit..

Under powering your subs won't hurt them but running a 15 inch l7 at 300 watts is not going to let the sub perform at peak, I would go with a 800 to 1000 watt amp.

15 inch l7 watt's are as follow

rms = 1000
peak = 2000

I have 2 15'' CVRs and a 1200w amp


1 OHM...ONE... sheesh now thats a low resistance for anything... If they are only 500 watts and they are in parallel, series well NO.. your amp puts out wayyyy too much for those speakers.. 1200w versus 500 watts by 2... srill NOT enough "Head room" for it to be safe... about half is all you could expect before Pop.. sound is heard.

I have 2 kicker l7 12s 4ohm speakers and was


Hello gonenutz14,

It depends on how you define the "best way". Driving each sub with a separate 750 watt amp will result in about 50 percent more power than having them share the output from a single 1000 watt amp. But with 2 amps, there's more wiring issues to contend with and the adjustments are more complex. The 2 750 watt amps will cost more than a single 1000. Plus if the 1000 watt amp is stable to 1 ohm, the power difference will actually be less than 50 percent because of the lower impedance. But if the 750 watt amps are also stable to 1 ohm and their outputs can be combined, we're back to 2 being better than 1.

I'd say that the simplest, most economical way is to use a single amp. If maximum power to the subs is the highest priority, and cost and wiring is not an issue, then 2 is better.

Hope this helps.

2 channel amp with 2 Kicker Cvrs 15"


Assuming the amplifier is 2 ohm mono stable... the amplifier is bridgeable... and the subwoofers are Single 4 Ohm Voicecoils, You would wire them as follows....

Both + on Both subs to the + bridged terminal on the amplifier.
Both - on Both subs to the - bridged terminal on the amplifier.

This will net a 2 ohm mono load for your amplifier.

If you have something different - let me know... and I will give you the proper wiring for what you have.

Got a 12"kicker L74ohm sub and sony xm-D9001GTR mono amp


Hello juan_penaloz,

The Kicker L7 has an RMS power range of from 50-750 watts and a maximum power handling capability of 1,500 watts so your Sony amp will power it OK. A more powerful monoblock like the Alpine MRP-M1000 or the Kicker 08ZX750.1 would provide even more power and could operate safely at 2ohms.

You have the voice coils wired properly for the Sony amp. It's OK to have the sub impedance higher, but you definitely do not want it lower than the 4ohms the amp is rated at in bridged mode.

Hope this helps.

What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


12In Kicker CVRs
are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

(RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

Sub+amp configuration


With a single 4-ohm subwoofer, usually the best choice is a 2-channel amp that can be bridged to a single channel. In your case, the sub is rated for 1000 watts. Not many amps are rated for that kind of continuous power into a 4-ohm load. Kicker doesn't list a minimum power rating, which isn't unusual in subwoofer specs. Depending on your budget, I'd look for an amp rated for 300-500 watts minimum; the higher, the better, up to 1000 watts. Most amps will have several power ratings, based on the load impedance and number of channels driven. A typical 2-channel amp might be rated like this: 150 watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms 300 watts x 2 channels at 2 ohms 500 watts x 1 channel at 4 ohms. The power rating you'll want to look at will be the 1-channel, 4-ohm rating. You can look at mono amps, too, but in the power ranges you're looking for, a 2-channel amp will probably give you the best value. However, if you can find a mono amp with a high enough 4-ohm power rating, it would run cooler and might last longer than a 2-channel amp with comparable power. When looking at mono amps, you'll find their highest power output will be at 2 ohms or 1 ohm; make sure you're checking the 4-ohm rating when making comparisons. Some amplifiers that might work well for you: Kicker SX900.2 Kicker ZX850.2 Alpine PDX-1.1000 Rockford T600-2 Hifonics ZXi 1006 Premier PRS-D2100T Power Acoustik OV2-2200
