Question about Kicker Car Audio & Video
SOURCE: price check
you would need the L7 dual 4 ohm subs they cost $200 each and the zx1000 amp runs $400 each.
However, the zx1000.1 amps will barely push them (L5 1200 watt would be a better choice on that amp) so the total cost shipped with authorized kicker warranty for 1 year would be $1200.00
I do however have 1 new in box single 06S12L7 dual 4 ohm in stock for $150 shipped its under full manufacturer warranty as well. the amps you need to push the rated power for L7 subs is the zx1500.1 and they are $600 each all of these prices are nearly 1/2 of retail that kicker requires its dealers to sell at, however i am a distributor so I can sell at w/e price I want :)
I can get you into a much better sub and amp combo for less but it isn't kicker brand. I went from 4 L7 12's running zx1500.1 to each sub for a total of 6000 watts RMS and hit 151 db and switched to Hifonics subs and amps and hit 157.3 with only 2 12 inch square brutus subs and 1 2000 watt RMS class d brutus amp. Hifonics will even warranty a blown or burned sub but kicker will not because they know they have voice coil heat issues with them. I have been using the same 2 subs and single amp for 9 months now in serious street beat comps and have never had an issue other than breaking car glass, however with the kicker sub amp combo in 7 months i went through 5 subs and 2 amps and never broke a window.
I can get you the brutus amp for $350 shipped and the subs for $260 a pair shipped or $600 for the combo shipped which is 1/2 the cost of the kicker at twice the quality and sound output. Hifonics is the only company to ever win more than 150 sanctioned events in a single season and they hold the record with over 210 wins in a season
let me know what you think on the price and I will do what I can to help out.

When setting your gain you want to set the gain high usually between 75% to 95%. if the gain is low than turning up the volume on your radio will only amplify the distortion coming from the under powered head unit. By turning up the gain you are maximizing the signal that is amplified coming from your head unit

To start, turn the gains on your amp all the way down. Bass boost should be off (this us used if you listen to your subs at low volume, the boost will heat your amp up quick if you use at high volume). Then turn the volume on your headunit up to 3/4 full. Make sure the filter on your amp is on low pass. The crossover point should be at it's lowest too. With all these in place, you can begin turning up the gain. You will have to decide at what point to move the crossover point. Since there are different styles of music, you will have to listen to where you feel notes are "dropping off" from the music. Adjust the crossover point to your liking, but remember that subs were made to reproduce low frequencies. Hope this helps
