It has to do with Ohm rating along with what your power amp specs are. If you are wired to have this dual voice coil speaker for 2 ohms (parallel), then your power amp might not perform, or able to handle the 2 ohm load, and therefore might go into thermal overload/protection. If you are wired to have this dual voice coil speaker for 8 ohms (in series), then your power amp will not put out the wattage it is rated for, or be able to "push" it at all. The higher the ohm load, the less wattage output from amp, especially if the amp is made to work at 2, or 4 ohm load. Check your specs.

Ihave 2 kiker 15 inch solo l5 1500 max 750 rms so what kind power , how many chanal am.p i need ? im confused......


If they are 2 ohms I would recommend dropping to 1 ohm for maxium out put. To drop to 1 ohm you are going to run the 2positives and 2negitives together in either a bridged or monoblock 1500w amp. After doing so i would get the spects for the speakers freq. ect. or go to a quality audio store and most of them will help tweek it for free. I would recommend Kicker ZX1500.1amp for best compatiblity.

My system is running hot!!!!!


your subs are the problem, not your amp, your wiring your subs paralelle, means dropping input ohmage, allowing your amp to over heat with minimal load, check the amp specs for running at low ohms, most hifonics amps are rated 2 ohms and higher, some however will run at 1 ohm, only on class b-a amps though.(competition) dropping ohmage will allow the amp to push more power to the voice coils, however the voice coils may not be rated for 1 ohm power, what ohmage are your coils rated at? do you have a min. of 100 amp inline fuse on your 1-0 awg wire? do you have internal fans? you can add mosfets to the amp but if you do so, you'll have to re-program your amps mother board.

Need help.. I have two 12 inch dual voice coil kicker comp vrs.. they are 4 ohm subs..how do i wire them to get a final ohm load between 1.5 to 4ohms in a dual enclosed box...Im hooking them up to a jl 500...


To do this they MUST be wired in parallel, IE: Plus to Plus, Negative to Negative. 2 4 OHMS in parallel is about 2 OHMS in series it would be 8 OHMS... series is positive to negative. Are you using a crossover network?

How do i wire a kicker cvr if it has two reds and blacks


the sub is a dual voice coil, and depending on how you wire them, gives you different bass response as it drops the ohms in your amp. it can be wired for 2 ohms one way 4 ohms another way or 1 ohm depending on what ohm the coils are. to learn more about this got to rockford fosgate.com, click support, then click woofer wiring wizard, this will answer all your questions about dvc subs.

Logic soundlab cpx1400 need to wire to a kicker cvr 15


Hello discrete01,

The Kicker model number 07CVR122 has dual 2 ohm voice coils, and can be wired for either 1 ohm or 4 ohms. Model number 07CVR124 has dual 4 ohm voice coils and can be wired for either 2 ohms or 8 ohms.

Kicker's wiring page is here: http://www.kicker.com/dvc_wiring

If you have the version with 2 ohm voice coils, you want to use the 2nd diagram for a final load of 4 ohms to the amp. The 1 ohm load is too low for the amp and will cause it to overheat and possibly fail. If you have the 4 ohm version, use the wiring shown in the 3rd diagram which is a perfect match for the amp.

Hope this helps.

I have 2 12 in kicker cvr tryna drop to lower ohm


http://www.colomar.com/Shavano/dvc_spkr_wiring.html

Use the above site for several wiring schematics on dual voice coil speaker hookups. It will show how to wire for different impedance.
Also, I think the CVR 12's come in 2 ohm and 4 ohm impedance. See if you can check yours to determine which you have....

Does two 1ohm woofer = 2 ohm


if you buy the 4 ohm subs you can drop each of them to 2 ohm and then down to 1 ohm between the two of them. going with the 2 ohm no matter how you wire them you will either get 2 ohms 4 ohms or 8 ohms. hope this helps by the way the 4 ohm solobaric and the 2 ohm are both the same price.

Wiring


provided that the memphis studio series is still 1 ohm stable you would wire each coil of each speaker like this : posive to positive negative to negetive on the speaker using 2 jumper wires then run 1 coil from each subs positive and negative the input on the amp that amp would see a 1 ohm load from both speakers as each speaker would become a 2 ohm load. from experience, memphis does not make an amplifier that is brutal enough on power for L7 15" solos, i have the st 1600 d amp running only 2 dual 4 ohm 10 L5's and it is barely enough power for them. For less money than your 2 subs cost retail I can get you brand new matching 2000 watt true competition rated and proven 1 ohm power and 2 subs that would physically fit in your current box, i would however recommend a very very large box for 2 15" squares. you can email me at sicaudio@msn.com , my advice and system designs are always free even if you do not buy thru me. I am usually 1/3 to 1/2 what retail is with full warranties and i can drop ship anywhere in the U.S.A.

Would this work


Yes, that amp works great with the CVRs as long as they are 12" subs and you get 2-dual 2-ohm subs. I started off with the same setup and it pounds HARD!!
