Do you have the subwoofer amp connected to the pioneer thru pre amp connections; pre amp output of pioneer to pre amp input of Kicker amp. Page 10 of the manual explains how to adjust the subwoofer output. You can select the cutoff freq. that will pass to the subwoofer; The slopes don't match perfectly, but if you use the -12 slope , it should work fine.
80HZ same as kicker cut in freq
rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck
Do you have ONE pair of 12's? Are they single voice coils? Dual? Bottom line, you are either over driving the amp (bass controll up high on the head unit (stereo), or the "load" on the amo is too low, meaning 2-12'" dual voice coils parreleled would give you a 1ohm load. Need more info, need to know what the bass is set on on your stereo, what size power wire to the amp, and I can wrap up the solution. ok?
So, as I see it, your system is hooked up like so:
Ch1 = Left speakers, front and back
Ch2 = Right speakers, front and back
Ch3 = One sub
Ch4 = Other sub
One thing you can try is swapping channels. Swap Ch1 with Ch3 and Ch2 with Ch4. Then see if the issue still occurs on the door speakers or do the subs suddenly cut out at loud volume. If the subs start cutting out, that means the issue is with Ch1 and Ch2. If you haven't already, check the RCA connections to Ch1 and Ch2 as well as the gain for all channels. If the gain isn't already set to about 50%, put it there.
Do the door speakers cut out completely? Are your subs running on a separate amp? If the answers are "yes" and "yes", there's a good chance your door speaker amp is either overheating or being overloaded (i.e. running 1 ohm loads on the channels). To fix this would require either re-mounting the amp somewhere it can get better airflow and/or rewiring the door speakers to be less of a load on the amp. If you provide details on your door speakers and amp(s) setup, I can provide a more detailed suggestion.
