Are your subwoofers wired in series or parallel? Check your connections, if everything is ok, the problem is with your amplifier. It might have a blown capacitor inside or its not really a 1ohm stable amplifier. Have it repaired if thats the case.

Best way to hook up a 15" solo baric L7 to a2400w cx 1200.1 kicker amp


The CX1200.1 amp is 2 ohm stable. Hopefully, you have the 4 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7. If so, connect the DVCs in parallel (both positives together, both negatives together) to the amp. This will maximize the output power of the amp. If you have the 2 ohm DVC version of the Solo-Baric L7, the best you can do is connect the DVCs in series to the amp. This will cut the output power in half, though.

I have 2 12 inch kicker rt dual 2 ohm subs. On a kicker cx1200.1 i want to kno how to hook it up to 2ohm to the amp. And if i can add another 10 inch kicker rt 2ohm sub in the future.


Do to the impedance Of your sub u can't run it @2ohms its going to either be @1ohm or 4ohms and your amp isn't 1ohm stable and u will risk damaging your amp. So your only option is to run it @4ohms and on a good note your sub is 100-600 watts RMS and your amp will push 400-500 watts RMS @4ohms. Now if you want to run 2 sub's in the future That amp will work perfect because it pushes 1,200watts RMS @2ohms and to wire your 2 sub's @1ohm just follow the steps in the image below. Hope this helped.25345194-v0hbouy2nvquqteoroa5j5rq-3-0.png

I have a performance teknique ICBM power 4000 watt 1 ohm when I put the load to 1 ohm it goes to protect **** at a 4 ohm load it slaps dosnt clip are anyting is it a power problem


check that load with an ohm meter. a 1 ohm load is very low and just the wires would increase the load. also as speakers age they can go lower on the actual ohm being used so even if the circuit would seem to add up to one ohm it may be even lower. If the amp is going to protect mode the load is just to great and it doesn't want to burn itself up. a good meter will tell you the real ohm load at the amp. make sure you get a good connection between the meter and the load. don't overload the amp it is not safe. also some speakers are "power hungry" or less effective at using the amps watts of power

Can I hook up 2 lanzar opti1532 subs 2 a kicker kx 1200.1 or do I need a bigger amp, its a 1ohm stable amp an birth sheet says 1390watts but they told me at 14+ volts it will do 1400rms


Based solely on spec sheet information the Lanzars can handle 1300 watts RMS and the KX1200 is rated at 300x1 @ 4 ohms, 600x1 @ 2 ohms, & 1200x1 @ 1 ohm. Even with a 1 ohm load you will still only be providing 600 watts to each sub. While the kicker will provide more power at 14+ volts, no car creates more than 12-13 volts via its alternator. A car battery only provides 12.6 volts. So you will be loking at 1200 watts from 1 channel as a best case scenario.

Additionally, with your 2 subs, they will need to both be Dual 4 ohm voice coils in order to net a 1 ohm final load. Each voice coil will need to be wired in parallel and then each speaker needs to be wired in parallel.

No knowledge of how to hook two subs which are the 12 alumni audiobahn sub to a performance technique 781 mono block amp operation ohms for the speakers say 3 or 12 ohms during operation can i bridge or do...


yor subs have dual 6 ohm voice coils from the sound of it-your amp is rated at 650 watts rms at a 1ohm load. The best you can do with the equipment you have is to wire ALL the coils of your subs in parallel and that will give you a 1.5 ohm load for the amp.It should knock the hell outta them with 300 watts on each sub - good luck

ONE OHM STABLE 2500W MAX POWER AMP DIAGRAM ON 2


For a 1ohm load it's positive to positive and negative to negative run 1 wire from one speaker to the other. Positive to positive neg to neg. Then 1 wire from the speakers to the amp. The amp will have + - + - on it's inputs for left and right speakers (if stereo) Use the outside positive and outside negative. If there are any switches on the amp that say "mono" "stereo" switch to "mono". Hope this helps

How to wire my kicker solar baric


All depends on your amp. Is it 1 ohm stable or not?
Parralell:
positive (pos) on voice coil 1 (vc1) to Pos on vc2 and negative (neg) on vc1 to neg on vc2. Then speaker wire from amp to one vc only = 1ohm load.
Series:
Pos from amp to Pos on vc1. Neg of vc1 to Pos of vc2. Neg of vc2 to amp = 4 ohm load.
