20 Most Recent Kicker Solo-Baric S12L5 Car Subwoofer Questions & Answers

Hi martineztag
You should never connect a load of an impedance less than the min the amp is able to drive. This can have disastrous consequences that may easily result in failure of the amps output stages. You need to use a different configuration that does not overload the amp in this manner for safe operation.

If you can smell burning I would say your voice coils are shot... My friend has a older Kicker subwoofer and it was doing the same thing you described... We took it in and the audio repair shop said it was toast.

Hi Hector, if all the wiring is connected properly, you then mite have a problem on the circuit board, or with the subwoofer itself. While its switched off try moving the switches one or two times just in case there is a dry contact. Next would be to take in the unit for an independant bench test before opening the unit. Cheers.

About all you can do if your really wanting to "fix" it, is tear it apart & completely recoil both voice coils.
Otherwise you can just run it on the one good side like a single voice coil sub.

If going sealed I would aim somewhere in the 1.5 to 2.0cuft area. That sub can go in a 1.0 cu ft box to 2.4 depending on the room you he the bigger is usually better for sound quality

First, that amp, has too much power for that sub. Even though it isn't really outputting 2500 watts, (realistically putting out 650 watts). That sub is only rated to handle 150 RMS, 300 Peak, 1000 watts will blow that sub very quickly.

First thing you need to do is find a sub which better matches the output of your amp.

The second thing, you need to make sure that your vehicle's electrical system is able to handle the additional current draw.

Address these things before you install your gear.
