I have 3 L7 kicker 15" subs will my audio pipe 1500 watt run them

Well the L7 15'' solo-baric subs are rated at 1000 watts RMS, so that would be 3000 watts of RMS amplifier power you would need to supply to adequately power all of them. I also suggest that an amp capable of producing more power than what is needed is usually better in order to prevent the amplifier from running at maximum capacity for long periods. In short your amplifier will power those subs, however you will only be able to supply 1500 RMS watts to the three subs so you will only be pushing the subs to 50% of their rated capacity while using 100% of amp capacity which will make your amp run "hot" and your subs run "weak", but if you're in a pinch it will work. Your best bet in this situation is to wire the setup so that the subs and amp are operating at minimum ohm stable impendence (usually 2 ohm). Seeing that you have 3 subs begging for 3,000 watts of power and you are only going to give it half of what it wants, I would suggest upgrading the amp or at least buying another one so that you can bridge the wattage and redistribute to all three subs with the correct impendence.

I have a boss rt645 2ch 1400 watt amp would this amp properly push a pair of 12 inch mtx terminators.

That all depends on the wattage of the subs. also the independance of the subs. If your amp is 1400 watt, maximum you want is 2 600watt subs. if your subs are higher you will blow your amp eventually as your amp isnt powerful enough to pump out to that level.You should never have your amp fully turned up to max, 80% is perfect and will not make your amp blow. Hense why you want your subs less than the max output of your amp.

JBL JRX115 producing very muffled sound even though graphics on mixer at normally used settings. Someone suggested we may have "popped" the horns. Is this potentially the problem. We have been running...

The speakers are rated 250 Watts. Driving with 600 Watt amps requires one to be careful of how much the volume is turned up to avoid damage. You MAY have damaged more than just the compression drivers on the horns but the voice coils on the 15 inch speakers as well. Further use could also damage the amplifiers. You did not mention what brand amps and it is possible they have a problem.

You best replace the units with ones rated for the power of the amps as restoring them on short notice for a gig is not practical.

Will a sony 600watt amp run a 10 300watt 4 ohm sub?

Yes, but the wattage numbers are pure marketing and have no bearing in reality or fact. In general, given realistic amplifier power specifications, a higher-powered amp will be a better and safer power source for any given speaker than an under-powered amp since the latter will probably have to go into severe distortion to produce the same loudness a high-powered amp can provide cleanly. Distortion kills speakers.

Need to know average amperes need to run at moderetly loud level

Go by the fuse rating on the amplifier as a default. i.e. - If on amp has a 40 amp fuse on the outside and another has a 30 amp fuse on the outside, then you need to supply at least 70 amps of current. the formula works like this: amps X volts = watts. Doing the math here, for an amp to produce 1000w of power @ your vehicle's 12v power, you need 83 amps of current. Most cars produce 14v from the alternator when running, so this is really only needing 71 amps. Make sure your car's alternator can supply the excess current when running. Most modern amplifiers are efficient enough to produce their wattage with even less current than that.

Amp voltage

Well this is interesting, Let me start by saying if you have a 2 ohm load and your system is set for 4 ohms you are going to overdrive your load and burn up your amplifier, maybe not right away, but sooner or later it will fail due to electrical and thermal stress bought on by power dissipation issues.

Yes you can get 2000 watts out of your amps, but the correct way is to bridge your amplifiers if you can, and terminate them into the proper load.

Thank you,
