Question about Kicker R3 Car Mid-Range

2 Answers

My amplifer will cut on and off between on and protect.

The amplifier i have is a kicker impulse 1252 it is 2 channel and bridgable. The problem is that every time it goes to push the watts to the subs it fails and goes the protect mode and shuts on and off. I really need to fix this so please someone help.

Protect mode is a good thing but frustrating as well.... KISS keep it simple stupid... 1. good solid ground 2 amp, closer better 2. good steady 12volt current reading, some amps will go into protect mode when starved of juice... 3.one wire at a time left sub neg. right sub neg. 4.again one wire at a time left pos.right pos.... ALL WIRING TO BE ONE PEICE UNBROKEN AND CORRECT AWG...... dont bridge anything out or go crazy until this very basic and to the point way is working for you.. ull drive yourself crazy make sure of no reverse polarity.. very common mistake....

Is a Adcom GFA-7500 5 channel power amplifier bridgable?


no this AMP is not bridgable to get more power out of this amp you need 4 ohm speakers.

Power rating
1 - 150 watts into 8 ohm speakers
1 - 225 watts into 4 ohm speakers

Is the sony xplod cdx-gt71w able to support a subwoofer without another amp


Sure is.

The sony is bridgable as follows:

  • 100W x 4 @ 4 Ohm
  • 100W x 2 + 250W x 1 @ at 4 Ohm

  • This will allow 2 channels to run 100 watts each @ 4ohms with an additional single channel with 250 watts @ 4 ohms.


    The single sub channel is created by bridging channels 3 & 4

    I want a reliable system.


    if you bought that equipment today then your answer is yes your amp will power the subs but if i was you and you want more bass I would go with a two channel amp or even a mono block amp that will be 1 ohm stable and if you decide to do that you might want to get subs that are dual 4 ohm voice coils and run them in series that will get you 1 ohm of resistance

    I have a kicker zx700.5 amp


    Hello aj_vidal22,

    Here's the link to MTX's sub page where you can view or download the information you need to properly wire the subs to your amp.

    http://www.mtx.com/caraudio/products/manualsQuickInstall/subs.cfm

    For maximum power, you'll need to wire the subs so that they present a 2 ohm load to the sub outputs on your amp. That will give you the full 420 watts RMS the amp is rated for. Likewise, you,ll want the run the front 4-channels at 2 ohms. Run separately, they produce 85 Watts times 4 channels, or if bridged, 130 watts times 2-channels. But if you run fronts at 4 ohms, they only produce 70 watts times 4 channels and your sub output at 4 ohms drops to 210 watts.

    Hope this helps.

    What is best amp to run 2 12 inch cvr's


    12In Kicker CVRs
    are Dual Voice Coil, and You can run each voice coil around 200 Watts RMS

    So each sub will have a 400 Watt RMS and 800 Watts peak.

    Now since you have 2, Your total will be 800 Watts RMS and 1600 Watts Peak.

    I would get really any amp that sits at around 800-1000 Watts RMS.

    These are kicker but they are low end so i wouldnt push them to the extreme.

    1000-1200 Watts RMS Max and but keep the Gain down on the amp. They will hit no doubt but i wouldnt push these subs or you will be disapointed in the long run.

    I would get a Fosgate or MTX amp.

    You can get any amp really but find something right around 1000 Watts RMS and it will push those well.

    You can go mono block or a 2 channel, just depends on how you want to wire them.

    Be careful though. If your running them bridged right now with your mono block, do not run them parallel bridged on a 1000w RMS Amp, you will blow them so fast lol

    (RMS = Root Mean Square. Or in other words is the continuous wattage being sent from the amplifier to the subwoffers)

    Subwoofers


    This will depend on the amplifiers capabilities.

    I will give 2 different scenarios.

    #1 Stereo configuration

    If the amplifier supports an RMS power output close to the RMS input power of the subwoofers then run the amplifier in stereo mode. For example 150 watts RMS X 4 channels driven at 20-20khz. (If you can provide a model # for the subs and the amp your looking at I can help you further with this decision.

    Wiring for this is easy and simply involves matching the connectors for 2 of the channels (Front or Rear) to each of the subwoofers.

    #2 Mono Bridged mode.

    If the amplifier is lower power but mono bridgable you can bridge two Pairs of channels and power each of the subwoofers this way.

    Generally speaking a 2 channel bridgable amplifier will be able to at least combine the wattage of each channel into a single monural channel and in many cases its actually higher.

    So you would bridge the front 2 channels into a single bridged mode for one subwoofer. and then you could bridge the read 2 channels into another bridged mono channel for your other sub woofer.

    For example if you had bridgable amplifier thats 50 watts RMS X 4 you coudl very likely (Generalization based on quality of amplifier) send 150 watts RMS to each subwoofer.

    Again I would need to know what amp you're refering to to provide specific wiring instructions. Many Bridging amplifiers either have a single switch that will send them to bridged mode or you would use the positive + terminal from one channel and the negative - terminal from the other channel or a combination of both.

    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

    Is it not bridgable


    This amp isn't bridgeable. It's a mono amp (only one channel). You need two independent channels to bridge. Some mono amps are bridgeable if you have two identical amps but I don't think Kenwood recommends that with this amp.
