Question about Kicker Solo-Baric L7 S15L72 Car Subwoofer
I want to wire my 2 12" 2ohm DVC kicker L7 speakers to a 2 ohm load on a mono block amp that is stable at 4, 2, &1 ohm. Is this possible? the amp i have is power acoustik A2400DB which says it will push 1400 watts rms at 2 ohms will this work?
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

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.
