The kicker 600.1 provides 600 watts at 2 ohms and 300 watts at 4 ohms the 10" JL W7 has 2 1.5 ohm voice coils so you will have to wire them in series. Take about 1.5 feet of 14 gauge wire and connect the positive of one voice coil to the negative of the other then the positive and negative that are left go to the amp. Your impedance should be 3 ohms and that amp should work just fine.
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.
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.
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 researched your amp and it looks like its not even 2 ohm stable :( the problem with these companies is they lable there amps 1200 watts MAX, that means they tested the amp in a perfect enviroment and the amp fried somewhere in the ball park of 1200 watts, your best bet is to save your money and buy a nicer amp that is two or one ohm stable... that being said the best way to wire your subs is in series
+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.
The 2 sets of terminals are connected internally. Having 2 sets just makes it more convenient when wiring multiple subs. The amp is rated for 900 watts RMS into a 2 ohm load. The specs claim that it is stable at 1 ohm but does not give a power rating.
The Radial SD competition series from Phoenix Gold are rated to handle up to 600 watts RMS. If you have the model RSdC124 with dual 4 ohm voice coils, it would be best to wire the voice coils in parallel for a 2 ohm load and connect the sub to one set of terminals on the amp. If your sub is the model RSdC122 with dual 2 ohm voice coils, you should wire the voice coils is series for a 4 ohm load and connect the sug to one set of terminals on the amp. Wiring the voice coils in parallel will result in a 1 ohm load. And, while the amp may be stable at 1 ohm, the sub will be seriously overpowered.
if you buy the 4 ohm subs you can drop each of them to 2 ohm and then down to 1 ohm between the two of them. going with the 2 ohm no matter how you wire them you will either get 2 ohms 4 ohms or 8 ohms. hope this helps by the way the 4 ohm solobaric and the 2 ohm are both the same price.
your problem could be in the fact that you are trying to overdrive the amp. sony will not carry a 1 ohm stable load and if your speaker are 4 ohm speakers wired in series then you cant drive the bass your looking for. try using soundstream tarantula amp or new hifonics block mono class d amp with about 1000 watts rms. what kicker subs do you have? that will also make the difference in amp choice. im running tarantula on 4 polk momo 4 ohm 12's and has broke my back glass in my jeep twice one time was for a show. oh well let me know. happy boom boom. i'll be glad to help
I'm not sure what pinoeer amp you have. If I remember correctly some are 1 ohm stable. In this case you would be able to wire everything in parallel. Meaning, with the voice coil, wire the positive to positive, and the negative to negative. Then wire the subs together positive to positive, and negative to negative. This will give you the total impedence of 1 ohm. If it isn't 1 ohm stable the best you could do is 4 ohms. To do this you would need to wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel. Meaning, wire the negative to positive and the positive to negative. Then take the subs and connect the positive to positive and the negative to negative. I hope this isn't too confusing. If you need further assistance let me know. Good luck
