Question about Kicker CVR12 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

2 12'' cvr kickers

I got 2 cvr Kickers with a kenwood 640 watt amp....for now.

Ive installed systems before so here we go.

I cant get the subs to hit. I tried it on just channel A and I only get tiny bass from 1 sub if both wires are connected. I tried it on channel A and B and same result. The ground is good, the amp turns on, the P.con is connected to remote control on cd deck, Audio cables are connected to amp and deck, Fuses are good, idk what else could be wrong.

It is a 94 mustang gt. It has 2 factory amps in the back and i unplugged them to see if that made a difference and it only stops the factory bass. I have played with the audio cables to make sure i didnt mix them up and im sure everything is hooked up correctly. Is there something else im missing?

thanks, Ben.

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!

I hooked up a 2-Ohm dual voice coil 800 watt max 12" Kicker CVR subwoofer and 4-Ohm single voice coil 1000 watt max 12" Kenwood KFC subwoofer to 1000 watt Kenwood Ampilifer. After hooking it up, the Kicker...


off the same amp? you have two way different sounding speakers man. you can buy 2 identical speakers from the same company and brand and series and they will play differently every time. you have 2 speakers with nothing in common so you will hear a difference and maybe interference because of the different ohm levels.

Wireing two dual 4 ohm kicker cvr 15s on a memphis pr1000 at a 1 ohm load. I trying to get these kickers to hit harder. Do I need a bigger amp or what?


CVR series do not have large power handling capabilities.
Your subs will melt before the amplifier is used to its full potential.
If the subs arent in a ported enclosure - do that.
They both handle 500w rms - so the pr1000 is perfect.
bass response is all in the enclosure!

I have an Audiobahn A8000T amp and 2 12" Kicker CVR (DVC) Dual voice Coil. The Subwoofers are 2OHM a peice. What is the best way to hook this all up to run a 2 OHM load to my subs?


This is a link to Kicker for your CVR12 Subs...if you have the 2 ohm version (2 ohms per voice coil) and you have 2 speakers ....you will need to wire EACH speakers voice coils in series to get 4 ohms from each speaker and then wire the 2 speakers in parallel.....as in....2 ohms in series with 2 ohms = 4 ohms....both speakers wired same way, then in Parallel with each other = 2 ohm load. Page 2 of this link gives examples of both series and parallel wiring of your speaker.

If you are still not sure as to my description of ' How To',
PLEASE respond and I will attempt to explain it EXACTLY via wiring directions.

Hello zqueliz,

It's possible that the sub is blown, but it may be something else. You did not specify how the subs are wired to the amp, how many channels on the amp, or whether or not the CVR's are in separate enclosures. These specifics will affect how you isolate the problem.

1) Check all of the wiring: RCA's from head unit to amp, speaker wiring from amp to sub. Make sure there are no breaks in the insulation and that the wire does not come in contact with another wire or metal parts on the vehicle.
2) Remove the nonworking sub from the enclosure and check the wiring from sub to terminal inside. While you have the sub out, check the "braided" wires going from the sub terminals to the cone.
3) Reverse the wiring from the amp to the subs to see if the problem moves to the right sub. That will tell you the problem is not in the sub.
4) If the left sub still fails with the amp channels flipped, you find no wiring defects, and you can't see any physical damage, test the sub voice coil with a multimeter. Set the meter to read "ohms" on the lowest scale. The actual reading should be a little less than the rated impedance. If the subs are 4 ohm, the meter should read about 2-3 ohms. If the meter reads "0" (pegs) or if it reads "infinity" (no reading at all), the sub voice coil is bad.

Hope this helps.

How to wire kenwood amp to kicker cvr 12"


How you wire it depends on how hard you want drive your amp. If your woofer runs 4ohm per coil I would wile it in series (amp +to sub +1 sub -1to sub +2 amp - to sub -2) then run it for a week and see if it has enough power. the lower your Impedance (the resistance load on the amp) the harder your amp works and more THD (noise) is produced. (Dclass amps aren't know for being clean to begin with) configured like this your amp will see 8ohms and sound the clean east. if this turns out to be not enough power wire it in parallel and double the output. wire amp + to sub +1 and +2 then amp - to sub -1 and -2.

A word to the wise... start with your volume very low and work up slowly most speakers will puk up the voice coil before the amp starts to get warmed up. you would hate to have to buy a new sub.

Have fun
