I have 3 L7 kicker 15" subs will my audio pipe 1500 watt run them


Well the L7 15'' solo-baric subs are rated at 1000 watts RMS, so that would be 3000 watts of RMS amplifier power you would need to supply to adequately power all of them. I also suggest that an amp capable of producing more power than what is needed is usually better in order to prevent the amplifier from running at maximum capacity for long periods. In short your amplifier will power those subs, however you will only be able to supply 1500 RMS watts to the three subs so you will only be pushing the subs to 50% of their rated capacity while using 100% of amp capacity which will make your amp run "hot" and your subs run "weak", but if you're in a pinch it will work. Your best bet in this situation is to wire the setup so that the subs and amp are operating at minimum ohm stable impendence (usually 2 ohm). Seeing that you have 3 subs begging for 3,000 watts of power and you are only going to give it half of what it wants, I would suggest upgrading the amp or at least buying another one so that you can bridge the wattage and redistribute to all three subs with the correct impendence.

I have 2 12


To be on the safe side without further information I would hook the two subs up in series leaving you with an 8 ohm load.

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

Installing two amps


No, thats what you don't what to do. Even if you have 2 matching amps you don't do that. Every amp puts out different, and for 2 subs, you want to play at the the same time. If your only running 2 10's, I personal would just run the alpine (it's a mono amp made especially for subs) thats plenty for what you have. make sure you bridge them to get the full response. And your other amp i would use for your highs or mids, but run it @ stereo , which is 300 w @ 4 ohms. (Note: 600w @ 2ohms would be bridged and would play in Mono)

Building Competition stereo's is a big hobby of mine.

Good price


Hello smoot_dog,

Well, you did not specify whether you have the 2 ohm or the 4 ohm versions of the L7 and that will impact your choice of amps. But with 8 voice coils and 4 subs to work with, you certainly have lots or potential configurations.

If your subs are the 4-ohm version, I would recommend the Alpine MRP-M1000. Currently it is on sale at www.crutchfield.com for $347.00. With this amp you'd wire the voice coils in parallel (2 ohms), wire each of the 2 pair of subs in series (4 ohms), and the resulting pairs parallel to the amp for a final load of 2 ohms.

If your subs are the 2-ohm version, I would recommend the Rockford-Fosgate Punch P1000-1bd which is stable at 1 ohm. Crutchfield sells it for $349.99. With the Punch and 2-ohm voice coils, you'd series the voice coils (4 ohms), parallel each pair of subs (2 ohms), and then parallel the resulting pairs to the amp for a final load of 1 ohm.

Either of these amps will provide an honest 250 watts RMS to each L7. They'll not only rock your vehicle, they'll rock the pavement.

L7 wiring options


yes it should work fine i would bridge them up to 4 ohms each speaker then bridge them back bye conectin them on the amp by puting the red with the red and puting the black with the black if the amp only has 1 chanel then put both speakers red on the same positive on the amp and same with the negative now to bring the ohms up to 4 ohms conect the solid red to the black with dot with a short wire ok then the ones that are not run together will go to the amp giving offf 4 ohms and with the 2 speakers bridged together thay will reduce to 2 ohms witch means that eatch speaker will get about 600 wats of rms from the amp

2006 12" Kicker L7 4 ohm


first whats the range in terms of WATTS that your 12" sub can handle in 4 OHMS ? second , lets check the AMP , POWER ACOUSTIK 1800 WATTS , Now thats a lot of power to drive a single 12" sub speaker . your amp is 1800 watts , per channel is around 500 watts , if BRIDGE thats around 1600 watts rms for ONE channel , if your sub can handle that kind of wattage fine , but it will not blow the amp , what it does is shuts down , some kind of protection mode , it will come back on after a minute or so. I suggest to use one channel in stereo mode , or purchase another sub to use the other channel. i hope this helps AJ
