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

How do you wire a single 15 L7


Depends on a few things. What is the impedance of your speaker? I will assume it is dual voice coil with each voice coil having a characteristic impedance of 4 ohms. Next what amp are you driving this speaker with? What is its minimum stable load it can run at in bridged mono? If it is 2 ohms stable then you can wire the voice coils in parallel, + to + and - to -. Then wire the + and - to the amp in its recommended bridged configuration. If the amp is not stable down to two ohms you will have to wire the voice coils in series, you will not have effective power from the amp with an 8 ohm load.

Here is a diagram from kicker to aid you.

I have 2 kicker l7 wanting to wire to best olm with hifonics 1200 mono


the best way to wire it is @ 1 ohm, but your amp has to be a 1 ohm stable amp. i'll attach some pics for you. this wiring depends on what ohm your subs are.

I got two DUAL 2omn speakers and i just need to know best way to wire them for a mono block amp. i have them wired parrallel in the box


With 2 speakers wired in parallel, the impedance will be halved, so you are presenting a 1 ohm load to your amp.
Many amps can drive a 1 ohm load, but not all of them. Check the specs for your amp.

If it can't drive a 1 ohm, then you'll need to rewire them in series. 2 speakers wired in series will double the impedance, so you'll present a 4 ohm load when they're wired that way.

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.
