I have 4 wires what do they do I no to of thim will go to my Kicier ame I Ddont no were the other to go


OK, I am assuming that you have 4 wires coming from the subwoofer itself. Your subwoofer has dual voice coils, this means there are two positives and two negatives. Look closely at the posts on the subwoofer and you can tell. These wires will go to your amp, all four of them. Here's the tricky part. You need to know if your amp is a monoblock (single channel) or two channel amp. Also, what ohms is it stable at (4, 2, or 1). If you have a monoblock stable at one ohm, take both positives from the sub and put to the positive of speaker output on the amp. Then put both negatives from the sub to the negative speaker output of the amp. If your sub is dual 4 ohm voice coils, this will give you a 2 ohm load. If you have a dual 2 ohm voice coil sub, this will give you a 1 ohm load. If you amp is 2 channel, just hook one set of positive and negative to one channel and the other set to the other channel. Hope this helps

How do i wire two kicker l7 dual 2 ohm subs to play on a mtx 7801 class d amplifier


Hello moore_broder,

Your MTX 7801 is stable at 1 ohm, but you cannot wire a pair of DVC 2 ohm subs to that impedance. They can only be wired to 1/2 ohm which is too low or to 2 ohms.

Series the voice coils and parallel the subs. On each sub, jumper Black to Red/White Dot, then run both red's (positive) and both black/white dot's (negative) to your amp terminals.

The diagram is here.

Hope this helps.

How do you hook up 2 12" L7's to a kicker 1200.1 amp?


You have a 2 ohm stable amp, and dual voice coil subs.. The L7's come in both Dual 4 ohm, and Dual 2 ohm, so you have to know what impedance your coils are prior to wiring. HERE is a nifty little guide that will show you how to wire your subs. DO NOT WIRE THE SUBS LOWER THAN 2 OHMS ON YOUR AMPLIFIER!

Amp 4 a Kicker S17L7


just make sure your kenwood amp can at least handle a 2ohm stereo load.Most amps now are able to .Your amps manual should list this or go online and check for that model .You basically have 2 subs in one allowing you to use one sub box in stereo mode.And just hook it up like two speakers left and right ..make sure amp has a crossover so that you only get bass at your woofer

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.

I have a Kicker 08S15L72 15 dual 2-ohm need it wired for 4 ohm


ok im going to try to explain this you have 2 voice coils , i will refer to as vc1 and vc2, you take vc1 positive and connect to vc2 neg then use vc1 neg and vc2 pos to the amp according to pos and neg signs.

General ?


they are dual 2 ohm all L7 are 2 voice coil per speaker so it is like 2 speakers not 1 the dual 2 ohm version is so you can use 2 speakers wired in series to get a 2 ohm load 2 ohms + 2 ohms = 4 ohms then parralel the 2 at the amp to cut it in half to get 2 ohms. I have full warranties on mine and i dont really sell alot of them any way I prefer the hifonics they sound better last alot longer and take way more power and put out 3 times as much sound. but i can check it out if you have the info.

Wiring my kicker solo-baric 15's


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.

Hi yeahonda,

 

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.

Good luck.
