500/1 v2 and one kicker VS12L7

I JUST BOUGHT A 2ohm KICKER VS12L7 WITH A SOLO-BARIC SUBWOOFER ENCLOSURE....SINCE ITS A 2ohm SUB WOULD IT WORK OKAY WITH A JL AUDIO 500/1 V2 AMP OR SHOULD I HAVE BOUGHT THE 4ohm INSTEAD?

It will work fine. This amp is stable to 1.5 Ohms, but is designed to put out about the same amount of power at 2 or 4 Ohms (unique).

Mtx mxa 6001 amp cant get it to produce good bass using mtx 5500 subs running a 2ohm load


You seem to have everything in spec. check your crossover points and your speaker wiring. subs may be playing out of phase.
A huge factor is subwoofer enclosure ...if the enclosure is not in spec with sub requirements the subs will not peform great.

So I have the first kickers that came out the 15 will a 800 watt amp push um without eather blowin out


If you are referring to the Kicker L5 solo-baric subwoofer, then an 800 watt peak amp will not blow even one of those subs. The L5 is capable of handling 1000 watts peak and 500 wrms. An 800 watt peak amp will usually have around 400 wrms. Underpowering the subwoofer will not hurt the amp or the sub(s).

I hooked my Hifonics BXi 1610 Brutus series amplifier up to my 2 12" Kicker Solo Baric L7 subs. Everything turns on on the amp but its barely pushing my subs. Ive tried tuning it and it still doesn't push...


wire the subs if thair dual 4 ohm . in parallel. red to red and black to black. giving it a 2ohm load. do the other sub the same. and conect it on the amp . turn your gain about 12oclock and db level less than 12oclock and your frequnecy around 80-100. and that should work

I have a JBL GTO 1201.1 mono amp and I have a kicker L5 solo baric with dual 2 ohm coils how do I run it to get the full power out of my amp?


You will not be able to get the full power from the amp without ruining your sub. The amp puts out full power into a 2 ohm load so option -A- is to just run one coil off the sub and it will absolutely pound -until you roast the coil.Then you can use the other coil and roast that one too. But since you do not want to roast anything-first thing to do is take it to the store and trade it in for a dual 4 ohm sub-wire the coils in parallel and there's your 2 ohm load to achieve max power from the amp. Problem there is that you will have WAY too much power for the sub to handle and you'll blow it anyways (in time).Best thing you can do is get an identical sub(dual 2-ohm) wire the coils in series which will make them 4 ohms per sub then parallel the subs to get back down to 2 ohms overall-you get max power from the amp and hopefully enough speaker to handle it.Hope that helps.

I have 2 kicker l7 12 dual voice coil subs.. i just friend a hifonics 1600w amp and am wondering if a kx 1200.1 kicker amp will be enough to power them they are 750w rms a piece .. can these be run at 1...


it all depends on the impendance of your subs if u have duel 4ohm or duel 2ohm, 2 duel 4ohm speakers can be wired at 1ohm to the amp, and with a kx1200.1 that would be pushin 2400 peak and 1200rms
if ya have 2 duel 2ohm speaker than you can only wire them to 2ohm and would be pushing 1200 peak and 600 rms with the kx1200, so if you have the duel 4ohm i would go with the kx1200.1 and if u have the duel 2ohm i would go with the hifoncs

Soundstream rub 500-1 mono....


U need to make sure your subs are wired correctly. And u need to make sure all your speakers are at the same ohm load. If u hook up two subs on one channel and two more on the other one u need to make sure that your subs are all 2ohm or 4ohm subs cause if u got two 4ohm subs ran parrallel then u will have a 2ohm setting and if both of them are 2ohm subs them your load will be a 1ohm load witch could harm your amp unless its an 1ohm stable amplifier.

Amp settings


It's going to be mainly "what sounds best", but I'll give you a start.
  • Set the gain to 50%.
  • Set the LP filter to 12db at about 80Hz.
  • Set the infrasonic filter to ON and at about 20Hz.
  • Set the Bass EQ to ON, Q to 0.7, center freq to 40Hz, and boost to about 5dB.
The other settings are going to be based on how the system is connected to the head unit.
