Nope!! I burnt up my 12W6 from supposedly under powering it. Your going to have to pay for a new coil if under factory warranty. Other wise ..... spent good money on a paper weight. Sorry for your loss, I know that I was pissed. :-(

The kicker 600.1 provides 600 watts at 2 ohms and 300 watts at 4 ohms the 10" JL W7 has 2 1.5 ohm voice coils so you will have to wire them in series. Take about 1.5 feet of 14 gauge wire and connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other then the positive and negative that are left go to the amp. Your impedance should be 3 ohms and that amp should work just fine.
the way i do it is much easier. please find an old electronic and cut the plug off of it snd wire it to your sub and plug it in to the wall socket but do not touch any part of the wires or subwoofer for your own safety. and when the sub stops producing volume the bad voice coil will rattle let me know how this work out for you
if you wire the 4 ohm sub voice coils in parallel you will have a 2 ohm load for the Image Dynamics sub, the JL sub only being single voice coil will of course be 3 ohm. You cannot connect them both to the amp you specified as when connected the total load will be less than 2ohms and the amp will either trip it's protection circuit or could damage the amp, My suggestion is to try each sub separately and decide on the one you like the most or obtain a matching pair for the 4ohm DVC.
first of all the coil might have overheated and slightly made the voice coil go out of round or one of the biggest problems that jl has with their w6 AND w7's is that the magnet shifts because of the glue they use if its not annoying just keep using it or you can contact jl which by the way they charge about 250 to recone it plus at least 50 to ship and i dont think they pay for shipping to send it back you pay that also
JL has good customer service, and usually you can get a drop-in replacement core/coil/former/spider. Call/e-mail the techsupport listed on their website, or contact your local dealer for replacement parts/service.
How much is your speaker max wattage? If it is 750 or below, it can only be used on one channel, either the right or the left. If speaker can handle 1500 watts then hook the positive speaker wire to R+ Hook black negative speaker wire to L-
the rottem electronic smell is the voice coil burned up as well as the bad sound, isn't the 1st time i have seen a JL sub blown. not worth fixing buy a new one the cost is not that much more repair on them is 250 - 450 depending on how bad it is and only JL can do the repairs as they dont authorize repair shops access to their voice coils. however i can sell you a new sub with full JL factory warranty drop shipped to your door for about 475$ or I could do you a way better sub ( the baddest competion sub made in the last 5 years) an olympus 2412 dual 2 ohm 5000 watt monster that has user replaceable voice coil options and is killing the competition circuit right now for about $275.00 shipped. it will stomp 2 13 w7's into the ground all day long. 2 subs vs just 1
