Kicker l7 all of a sudden doesnt work!

Hi

just recently my kicker 12" l7 has no bass coming from it at all.. the amp power is on and tested the channel connections on the amp to check that the amp was running at 1 ohm since its a mono, and it was. i checked the connections from the outside of the box that connect to the subwoofer and they were good.. i dont know what else to check!

Try using different rc wires from deck to amp.Plus you could have lose rc wires on the back of your deck. If that isn't it take sub out of bow and check the termanal wire the speacker wire goes to fallow it to see if it broke off where it goes into the sub.I have seen it break right before it goes into the sub before.Before you take you rc wires off on move them around to see if you get sound,that will tell you it's the rc wire at the amp then check behind the radio.But before you take the deck out turn your system up and go to you sub and push it in and if it starts working you have a broken or mess up wire in sub.If it is under warrenty take it back.Any more problems e mail me.

Check your RCA cables to make sure you are getting signal. The amp isn't in protection is it? Also, if you have a multimeter, you can check to see if you are getting any power out to the speakers. Also, check to make sure your subs aren't blown. Keep me posted.

On the amp there should be High pass and a low pass setting. Put it on low pass cause if its on high pass or in between it produces normal noted like a speaker. Low pass will filter out all the high frequencies.

Craking sound


its either a bad voice coil or your amp is under powered while hitting good bass, could try a CAP or replace your car battery

HOW TO CONNECT 2 12" KICKER L7 TO A US AMP MD-1D


So you have to run both of the subs to your amp so that its see's 2ohms. The L7's probably have to voice coils to connect both the positive's together and both the negatives together to the positive and negative on your amp

I turned my 15" L7 kicker and smoke started to come out the box


As stated before, knowing the impedance of your subwoofer would really help the situation. Either way the link I have provided is to your subwoofers manual (Incase you dont have it)

But since you have said it has smoked, if it still works I recommend turning the bass boost down (Bass boost causes alot of heat within the subwoofers voice coil and even within the amp itself and should never be maxed out.)

Here is a link to your manual for the subwoofer.
http://www.kicker.com/sites/default/files/SoloBaricL7Series.pdf

So as a solution to your issue, keep your bass boost turned down. You should almost never need it if you have tuned your amp correctly (You have a very serious subwoofer there)

Consider yourself lucky if your subwoofer is still working without issues.

My L7 won't hit.


unfortunately chances are it is a bad sub. but I would hook it up to someone elses amp and then see if it works. Use same power or less for test. If it dont work then I hope you have a warrenty.

I plugged int he rca's but he the lowest sounding bass possibe


kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.
