Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a Legacy Predator 2000 watt amp with 2 12'' Kicker speakers. It has been in my car for about a year now, and it recently just stopped working. I have the green light to the amp, im not sure about the speakers tho. Me and numerous friends, who have had systems, have tried to see whats wrong. We cannot find anything wrong! We have replaced the cables, took out spliced wires, and everything appears to be ok, can anyone help me?!?!?!

If you have checked your ground, live, remote and RCA's, The problem may lie with your kicker speakers.
There may be a loose wire connection on the speaker terminals (hense no sound).
Check the terminals at the speaker (+) and (-) then check the speaker wires to your amp inputs.
Usually if there is a fault with any wires linked to your amp, the amp goes into protect mode.
If your amp is not going into protect mode, try linking a different speaker to each terminal on your amp (left) then (right). If you get sound through a different speaker, more than likey your speaker wire to your kickers has came loose (due to vibrations) or there is a break in your speaker wire.

Hope this helps. If any more info is needed I'd be happy to help more. Please rate if helpful

Is it safe 2 install these subs 2 a 2000 watt power acustic amp and if so how do I wire them for a 1 ohm stable load


It looks like you have the Power Acoustik OVN1-2000D Mono Block 2000 Watt amp.
Monoblocks all feed speakers normally and cannot be bridged. So hookup your speakers
as normally with + on the amp to + on the speaker and same with the -.
Now for the speakers. I dont know too many Kicker speakers that are 1 ohm but the
monoblock wont care. It will feed the 8,4,2 or 1 ohm speakers the same power. You just may
get less response from the higher ohm speakers-less Bump Bump. You could wire your speakers
in series to get a lower ohm load (2-4ohm speakers in series gives the amp a 2 ohm load) and get
better response. Here is a site that answers many electrical and speaker questions.
See # 57 on the right hand pane. Tells you exactly what will do best. Good luck.

What kind of amp do i need for 2 kicker ds6930 140 watts peak and 2 ks6930 6x9 watts peak 150 and 3 Kicker KS350 3-1/2 40 watts each peak


600 Watt to 1000 Watt 4 CHANNEL AMP for the four 6X9's and a less powerfull 4 Channel amp thats at least 200Watts to 400Watts peak for the 3 3-1/2 kicker speakers. Because if you try to connect the 3 3-1/2 speakers to only 1 4 channel amp that the 6X9 speakers are on you risk of overheating the amp and blowing the speakers too!!!

How to run the speaker wires to connect to the subwoofer? and does a sub woofer burn if you do not put the right ammount of watts to it for example having an kicker l7 connected to a three houndred watt...


i'm guessing you are having problems with the dual voice coil's so I will link you to the kicker wiring guide...

http://kicker.com/sites/default/files/SoloBaricL72006.pdf that has the wiring options, you will need a pdf reader **** as adobe or foxit..

Under powering your subs won't hurt them but running a 15 inch l7 at 300 watts is not going to let the sub perform at peak, I would go with a 800 to 1000 watt amp.

15 inch l7 watt's are as follow

rms = 1000
peak = 2000

I have 2 kicker cvr12s and a legacy predator 2400 watt amp and when I turn the radio up the amp goes into protection once they hit a decent time. I just down graded from 15s so I know its not a power...


you prolly have the subs wired to a too low of an ohm load...thats what happend to me. i had the same subs, and a 500.1 watt amp...and they still blew up..whire EACH sub to a 4 ohm...that should work.

SHOULD I GO AHEAD AND BUY A 400 WATT AMP?


All amps aren't created equal. More exspense amps put out "cleaner" power. You need to know what the RMS power rating is for the amp at 8 ohms and 4 ohms. Also, is the speaker an 8 or 4 ohm speaker? How you wire a speaker or speakers (series or paralell) can change the ohms (resistence) which will change the power put out of the amp. Also, I'm assuming you are setting it up in mono?

2000 watt legacy predator amp


Disconnect all speaker wires from the amplifier's speaker terminals and disconnect the RCA cables from the amp. If the amp still goes into protect, it probably has shorted output transistors.
