If the subs are going to be wired at 2 ohms you will need a class d amp that is 1200 watts at two ohms rms i would say you should probably be running zero gauge wire and at least a two fared cap

My kicker 12 inch cvr's arent hitting as hard as they should


amps and wiring kits are very optimistic on the output. If you want proper wire, buy some welding cable "0" or "00" guage. That solves the power delivery. Put a 1 Farrad (or more) capacitor near the amp, that solves the surge power issue. Make sure the box is suitable for the subs. Lastly I'd say do some research and find the right amp that can deliver the clean, huge current required to move some serious air!

2 kicker cvr 12's in prewired kicker box with 1 wire terminal, kicker cx1200.1 amp. Whats the best way to wire this combo?


Well you really can't run both speakers on one term. because you will over heat the amp , unless your amp is rated at twice the capability of your subs , Then if so , Try positive to one sub , then neg. to the other sub , then bridge the remaining positive to the remaining negative terminal , But it is really best to get a two channel amp for your subs !!!

I have a Hyundai accent 2013 with a kicker 2 12"


Alright first suggestion is to get a different amp. Cause for one a mono amp is meant for just one signal (one speaker) also you need to make sure that you get an amp that is powerful enough to run the subs. You need to find out what the RMS of both speakers is. From just a few moments online I found a Kicker 12" Comp. subwoofer has an RMS of 50-150 watts. So you need to find a 2-Channel amp that has at least 300 but you should get one that has at least 400 just to be save. You can find a Dual 2-Channel 400W amp at Walmart for $55 and get the 600W wiring kit for $25. You should just use the inside speakers for mids and highs and allow the subwoofers to run just low frequencies. That way everything will sound correct, and not ruin your subs if the do not have a voice coil in them. It's fairly simple to set up a system with an amp and subs, you just need to make sure you have the right parts.

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

Busted Kicker Subs


hi not worth fixing as labor is to high.

look around on ebay make sure you replace them with a name brand some companies like JBL sell refurbished subs with full warranties for cheap.

Remember with subs you must have a crossover either electronic or just a component in the cabinet so that the speaker is only reproducing the correct frequencies.

Lastly 12" subs require a ton of clean power 200 watts per ch minimum..and if possible they should be either 1 channel amps or bridged to 1 channel meaning for a pair of 12's you would have 2 amps

Contrary to popular belief most subs are damaged because people overdrive their amps and that blows the voice coil

hope that helps

Best amp for Kicker Sub


Hello dalex7,

The Kicker 08ZX400.1 would be a great amp for your subwoofer. It will work into a 4ohm load with no problems.

But you can buy an amp with more power, looks better, has a smaller footprint, and cost less than the 400.1. I'd look at the Alpine MRP-M500. Take a look at it here at Crutchfield. The M500 is also easy to install, runs cool, and is very efficient.

Hope this helps.

Good price


Hello smoot_dog,

Well, you did not specify whether you have the 2 ohm or the 4 ohm versions of the L7 and that will impact your choice of amps. But with 8 voice coils and 4 subs to work with, you certainly have lots or potential configurations.

If your subs are the 4-ohm version, I would recommend the Alpine MRP-M1000. Currently it is on sale at www.crutchfield.com for $347.00. With this amp you'd wire the voice coils in parallel (2 ohms), wire each of the 2 pair of subs in series (4 ohms), and the resulting pairs parallel to the amp for a final load of 2 ohms.

If your subs are the 2-ohm version, I would recommend the Rockford-Fosgate Punch P1000-1bd which is stable at 1 ohm. Crutchfield sells it for $349.99. With the Punch and 2-ohm voice coils, you'd series the voice coils (4 ohms), parallel each pair of subs (2 ohms), and then parallel the resulting pairs to the amp for a final load of 1 ohm.

Either of these amps will provide an honest 250 watts RMS to each L7. They'll not only rock your vehicle, they'll rock the pavement.
