Question about Kicker 01C8VR4 Car Subwoofer
How do i hook up a dual voice coil sub. the extra connections on the sub confuse me. i can run it at 2 or 4 ohms. my amp runs 500rms at 4ohms or 900 watts at 2 ohms rms. which would b better?

Your Kicker L7 Ohms may be too low for the MA Audio Mono block amp. The MA Audio Amp is probably 2 Ohm Stable. The kicker will either be 2 ohm or 4 ohm Dual voice coil. To eliminate the low ohms as a possible threat to causing the map to go into Protect, Wire the kicker Voice Coils in Series. This adds the ohms, so that you either have 4 or 8 ohms.
I am using the following codes to show wiring. VC1+ stands for the Kicker Subs Voice Coil #1 Postive post. AO+ is the MA audio Amp output positive.
AO+ to VC1+
VC1- to VC2+
VC2- to AO-
This shopuld give you 4 or 8 ohm depending on the 15" L7 setup. Crutchfield does not carry the Kicker L7 in 15" They do have the L5 in 15".
If you know how to read a Volt Ohm Meter, set it to OHMs 20 and measure across VC1+ to VC1- and you should see between 1.5 and 5 ohms.. Do the Same with VC2+ to VC2-. you should see the same voltage. Also read from the Voice coil metal housing to VC1+ , VC1-, VC2+, and VC2-. and you should not read any ohmage to the case. The meter should say OL, or -1.
