Question about Kicker 01C8VR4 Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Srt 8 factory kicker system

I have installed a zx mono amp for a solo baric sub, and a zx 4 channel amp for the rest of my speakers, but the factory head unit which powers off of the factory 8 channel amp which is made by kicker only allows highs or mids to sound through the rest of my speakers.  It will not allow both.  I was told it was the digital signal from the factory amp.  I wanted it out, but the head unit needs it to run certain features.  What is the problem here or what other options do I have?

I have a vw polo 06. Can i hook up a sub plus rear speakers to the factory fitted cd player?


You can use a hi-low converter off your existing speakers. This will give you rca signal wires to run one or more amps, and speakers.

Installing two amps


No, thats what you don't what to do. Even if you have 2 matching amps you don't do that. Every amp puts out different, and for 2 subs, you want to play at the the same time. If your only running 2 10's, I personal would just run the alpine (it's a mono amp made especially for subs) thats plenty for what you have. make sure you bridge them to get the full response. And your other amp i would use for your highs or mids, but run it @ stereo , which is 300 w @ 4 ohms. (Note: 600w @ 2ohms would be bridged and would play in Mono)

Building Competition stereo's is a big hobby of mine.

Wiring my kicker solo-baric 15's


The best you can do is connect the dual 2 ohm voice coils of each respective sub in series (4 ohms total per sub) and then connect each sub to one channel of the amp. This will give each sub 1000W, which is the rated maximum from Kicker.
