    How would you suggest i adjust my lows on my deck - my gain on my amp - and the bass boost (0-6-12) on my amp? My subs are 3days old. Thanx!!!!!

    speaker sucked in the box, when i turn it up, but the other one would keep beating., Not sure if my box my be the problem or what, any help would be appreciated?

The best you can do is connect the dual 2 ohm voice coils of each respective sub in series (4 ohms total per sub) and then connect each sub to one channel of the amp. This will give each sub 1000W, which is the rated maximum from Kicker.

    The deck EQ, amp gain, and amp bass boost are all going to generally do the same thing, just at different frequencies. Depending on the deck, it's LF band in it's EQ may be 80-100Hz. The bass boost on the amp is probably centered at 40hz or 60Hz (or adjustable, if you're lucky). The gain adjustment on your amp is going to boost every frequency.
    So what it comes down to is you are going to have to play with each setting a little bit until you get, what you feel, is the best combination. Here are my recommendations:


    1. Set the amp gain to 50% (where 100% is full max).

    2. Set the deck EQ to 0 (aka nominal).

    3. Set the bass boost to 0.

    4. Adjust each setting individually with the system at a "decently high volume".

I got 2 pcs of kicker 12L7, one is 2ohm and the other is 4ohm DVC. in there any chance i can run them together with one amplifier? i got a venom VD2600S and venom 1600.D, will it be ok if i use each...


Run the amp in stero Run the 2ohm to one chanel, Wire the dvc 4ohm to run 2ohm + to + - to - to the other chanel and you should be fine.
If you had a 1ohm stable amp you could run both speakers wired 2ohm to a mono amp and have a 1ohm set up and double the power!

I got two DUAL 2omn speakers and i just need to know best way to wire them for a mono block amp. i have them wired parrallel in the box


With 2 speakers wired in parallel, the impedance will be halved, so you are presenting a 1 ohm load to your amp.
Many amps can drive a 1 ohm load, but not all of them. Check the specs for your amp.

If it can't drive a 1 ohm, then you'll need to rewire them in series. 2 speakers wired in series will double the impedance, so you'll present a 4 ohm load when they're wired that way.

I have my l7 solo baric on series mode they sund


Hello rigo11785,

The MTX Thunder 1501D is stable at 1ohm and outputs 1,500 watts RMS into that impedance. An L7 with 2ohm DVC's would present a 1ohm load if wired in parallel and would allow the amp to produce more power than into the 4ohm series load. The problem is that the L7's maximum power handling rating is only 1,000 watts RMS, so if you wire the coils in parallel, you'll very likely overdrive the sub and perhaps damage it. Now, if you bought another L7 and ran the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel, that would be a 2ohm load and well within their power handling capability.

With that amp and sub, I'd recommend leaving the voice coils in series.

Hope this helps.

Need to wire two dvc 15 in kicer l7 to 1 ohm


Hello goldy6569,

To wire the L72's at 1ohm, simply connect both +'s and -"s on each sub together. Then connect to your amp terminals.

With 2ohm DVC's, you can have either a 1ohm load or a 4ohm load. The diagrams are here (I know it's the website of a Kicker competitor, but their "wiring wizard" is simply the best).

Hope this helps.

Whats the best way to hook up my L7 10''


Hello ereza25,

The best way depends on what amp you are using to power the sub. With dual 2ohm voice coils, you can wire to either a 1ohm or a 4ohm final load. If you are sure that your amp is stable down to 1ohm, that wiring will provide the best power to the sub. But if the amp is not rated at 1ohm (many aren't), then the 1ohm wiring will result in overheating and possible damage to your amp.

The wiring diagrams are here. Hope this helps.

CORRECT CONNECTION TO AMP BEING A FOUR TERMINAL SPEAKER


Hello i_starling,

The Kicker L7's come in either 2ohm or 4ohm dual voice coil (DVC) versions.

Whatever amp they are connected to, you need to know both the impedance of your L7's and the impedance of your amp. The L7's dual voice coils can be wired to provide a total of four different loads:

2ohm coils in parallel = 1ohm load
2ohm coils in series = 4ohm load
4ohm coils in parallel = 2ohm load
4ohm coils in series = 8ohm load

Your best connection would be the one that results in a final impedance load that is supported by the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 kicker l7's 4ohm, how do i wire them down to 2ohm?


If the subs are dual 2 ohm voice coils.....
  1. For a each sub, connect one of the "+" terminals on the sub to one of the "-" terminals. This makes each sub 4 ohms.
  2. Connect the unused "+" terminals of each sub together. Do the same with the unused "-" sub terminals. This makes the sub combination 2 ohms.
  3. Then connect the "+" and "-" sub terminals from the above step to the amp.
If the subs are dual 4 ohm voice coils, you can't connect both subs in any fashion to get a 2 ohm impedance. The best you can do is make a single sub 2 ohms by connecting both "+" terminals together and both "-" terminals together or the pair of subs 4 ohms by doing the same, then connecting one sub's "+" terminals to the other sub's "-" terminals, then connecting the other "+" and "-" terminals to the amp.

huge shared common space slot loaded box (size depends on sub 10", 12" 15" you need to clarify that please) the amp specs on earthquakes site say the phd5000 is rated at a max output of 5k watts at 1 ohm 3k watts at 2 ohm so, with 3 dvc 2 ohm subs you only have 3 options of which only 2 will be a usable solution:

1. 3- 2ohm dvc series at sub parralel at amp = about 1.33 ohms at the amplifier this is the best option to get the most power to the subs as each sub will produce a 4 ohm load then wire each one to the amp the amp sees 3 4 ohm parralel loads which = 1.33 ohm so based on the amp specs you would be close to 1200 watts per sub.

2. 3- 2ohm dvc wired in series at sub and all 3 subs series wired together very difficult to wireand will give you a 12 ohm load which is next to no power at all (not a viable solution)

3. 2- 2ohm dvc parralel wired to each other and then at amp the amp sees a 1 ohm load and makes 5k watts max but you can only (REREAD THAT LINE! ONLY USE 2 SUBS IN THIS WAY) WHICH GIVES THE MOST POWER BUT ONLY USES 2 SUBS
