TWO THINGS : first check that amp has a good ground , I mean connected to the chassis of vehicle .

second , check the connections of the speakers , it could be Unbalance , meaning not matching the value in OHMS of AMP with value in OHMS of speaker,
you will need a multimeter for this task . hope this helps

Kicker 12L5 blew from a kicker zx750.1


MY BEST GUESS FROM WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS THAT THE BOX WAS TO SMALL. BUT YOU ARE OVERPOWERING THE SUB RUNNING IT AT 2 OHMS ON A 750 WATT AMP WITH A SUB THAT IS ONLY RATED FOR 600. NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU TURN YOUR SETTINGS DOWN, YOUR STILL PUSHING TO MUCH POWER FOR THE SUB TO HANDLE. IT IS ONLY RATED 600 WATTS FOR A REASON. ESPECIALLY IF YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC THAT HAS A REAL LOW END AND THEN A HARD HIT. REMEMBER A HARD HIT WILL SPIKE YOUR AMPS OUTPUT THEREFORE PUSHING MORE WATTAGE TO THE SUB.

I have phase linear uv8, need to know how to get subs 2 work! Amp goes into protect mode when rca's r plugged in, there r 3 sets of preamp out puts 1 front left and front right, 2nd is rear left rear...


try testing the amp without speakers plugged in. Run the sub preamp out to the amp that you will drive the subs with, but don't wire up the subs yet. Test for protect mode kicking in.
Yes - unplug the rca ins from the amp. retest.
No - Problem lies within the sub wiring. What is the load on the amp (measure with an ohm meter)? If it is below 4ohms, chances are the amp can't dip that low. Give it more resistance by wiring it differently (series vs. parallel)

So I have the first kickers that came out the 15 will a 800 watt amp push um without eather blowin out


If you are referring to the Kicker L5 solo-baric subwoofer, then an 800 watt peak amp will not blow even one of those subs. The L5 is capable of handling 1000 watts peak and 500 wrms. An 800 watt peak amp will usually have around 400 wrms. Underpowering the subwoofer will not hurt the amp or the sub(s).

I've been running a kicker kx 800.2 and it has worked until now


Hello highryguy420,

It sounds like one or more of the output components is failing on the amp. You can contact Kicker support directly for instructions to return the amp for repair: support@kicker.com . Alternatively, if you have a local car audio shop that does component level repairs, they could perhaps save you some money and time.

Hope this helps.

Cut out


rewire the subs-each sub you want in series=8 ohms per sub-then at the amp wire the two 8 ohm subs in parallel which brings the ohms back down to 4 ohms which is optimal for the amp and it shouldnt shut down on you any more-try that-good luck

Goes into protection mode for no reason


if the amp is powering on the sub and playing and then turns in to protect mode it could be the amp is getting hot and its kicking into protect so you wont fry the amp

Amp protection


Does it go into protect if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

What amp to use


recommended maximum for the sub boxes is 1600/800 here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.kicker.com/06/tech-support/manuals/manuals/2007/2007%20CompVR%20Box%20d01%20Web.pdf If you really wanted to get the maximum from your subs then a zx750, or possibly a zx1000 would be the ideal choice. Either amp you suggested will work, but you will have more fun with a 750 which should do fine. Hope this helps :)
