Kicker 12L5 blew from a kicker zx750.1


MY BEST GUESS FROM WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS THAT THE BOX WAS TO SMALL. BUT YOU ARE OVERPOWERING THE SUB RUNNING IT AT 2 OHMS ON A 750 WATT AMP WITH A SUB THAT IS ONLY RATED FOR 600. NO MATTER HOW FAR YOU TURN YOUR SETTINGS DOWN, YOUR STILL PUSHING TO MUCH POWER FOR THE SUB TO HANDLE. IT IS ONLY RATED 600 WATTS FOR A REASON. ESPECIALLY IF YOU LISTEN TO MUSIC THAT HAS A REAL LOW END AND THEN A HARD HIT. REMEMBER A HARD HIT WILL SPIKE YOUR AMPS OUTPUT THEREFORE PUSHING MORE WATTAGE TO THE SUB.

What size amp needed with a sony explod player?


this bandpass enclosure is rated peak power at 1200 watts . what this means is that each subwoofer in the is peaked at 600watts to make 1200 watts . what your looking for is to power up the subs with rms continuous wattage . you need an amp that will put out 400 to 500 rms a channel to run this sub enclosure at 800 to 1000 watts rms to keep the speaker from blowing


audiopipe apf1801
71671968.jpg this amp will give you 1 channel @ 4 ohm x1 350 watts 1 channel @ 2 ohm x1 900 wats 1 channel @ 1 ohm x1 1800 watts you would have extra power for better subs with more power later but you get 900 watts which when connected right would mean 450 watts per sub be perfect for you . i sell this for $320.99 in my store can shipp any where in usa to contact me [email protected]

Subwoofer rumbling noise


check all your supply wiring's specially the one that is connected directly to the positive terminal of your battery, it has to be of enough gauge to supply your amplifier's wattage, and it is has to be properly grounded to the body of your car.

Need amp


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would be safe to use an amplifier slightly lower than the maximum rating of the speaker. In this particular case, 350 watts or lower would be just about right for each. If you are wiring the 2 subs in parallel and powering them with a single channel amp, then a 700 watt bridged would also work.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Amp Issues


1800W peak output at 2 ohms
975W peak output at 4 ohms
600W RMS (continuous) at 2 ohms
325W RMS (continuous) at 4 ohms
Variable LP crossover adjustable 35-250Hz
4 AWG power/ground inputs and RCA pass through
Low-pass filter
Bass boost 0-18dB adjustable remote punch bass EQ
Signal-to-noise ratio: >80dB
Line-level input


It is going into protect mode for a reason.
Disconnect the subs and turn everything on again. If the light comes on, the problem is internal and will need servicing by a technician.

Wiring


In all reality, that amp is probably a bit small for those two subs. To maximize the power from the amp to the subs, make sure:
  • The dual voice coils of each sub are in parallel (+'s together, -'s together). This makes each sub 2 ohms.
  • Connect the subs in series (+ to -). This makes the combination of subs together 4 ohms.
  • Bridge the 2 channels of the amp to the subs in series (see above).
This will put somewhere between 150-200W to each sub.

Keep in mind, though, that depending on the music type and location in the vehicle, the type and size of the sub box is going to make almost as much difference as how much power is on the subs. Sealed boxes are usually small and have a nice flat response, but tend to need more power to sound louder. Ported and bandpass boxes are larger and aren't as flat of a response, but have nice loud peak at a certain frequency.

Let me know if you need any more help!

Compatible amp for subs


hi there. yes it should work providing you have the correct wiring it for it, if you buy the LV 416 enquire about a wiring kit to fit, most will. theyre normally around 20pounds. most amps will be compatible with most subs. i run both my 12inch 1000w off one 1200amp at half power, they kick lovely and i have no problems.


any other quiries please ask

2 12" Hitron 600w subs in a BandPass box


Remember that driving a load with an underpowered amp will probably cause more problems than having a more powerful amp that is not running flat out. 200-300W amp would be ok, but I would suggest going for the biggest you can afford. If you crank up the volume on the smaller amp you will probably get a fair amount of distortion, which may actually damage the speakers. A larger amp will not give as much distortion for the same loudness/volume and give better control of the speakers for a tighter bass..
