7400 block of bissonett? hell my cousin lives down the street, smack him for me :biggrin:

you have this guy, right ?



Factory specs say they do 625 x 1 at 2 ohms, and 1250 x 1 at 1 ohm... so already you're way underpowering some L7's just like pitbull suggested. But if thats what you got, thats what you got.

But first before I start suggesting any specific wiring for you, are the L7's your considering or already own 4 or 2 ohm dual voice coil versions?

cause you could do some funky wiring with that for a load on that amp...just dont expect the world on its output. The thing is, no matter how you wire it, one of the subs is going to be powered a bit more than the others.....you probably wouldnt really be able to tell too much. Is that amp something you own already or what?

hmmm...

you really shoulda looked into all this before you bought your shit...

with what you have, you can wire all three subs how it is in option 2:



that will give each sub approx. 416watts RMS each (that is significantly underpowering the subs)...

if you run just two for now, your still out of luck because that will give each sub only 312.5watts RMS...

if you run 1 sub, you would have to run it at 1ohm can that would OVERPOWER the sub by 250watts RMS...

i think your best bet is to send that amp back and get an amp that can putout about 2400watts RMS x 1 @ 1ohm... look into some Orion amps, i dont think kicker has an amp that can give 2400watts...

or you can send the 3 subs back and purchase 2 L5's 15"and that amp will feed each of them 625watts RMS (the RMS handling on those is 750watts)....

(i think i would send 3 12" L7's back and pick 2 15" L5's and keep the amp you have)


the choice is yours though, i personnaly dont recommend odd numbered subwoofer systems...

that would be good if you could daisy chain the amps (i dont think you can though, someone would have to double check me on that)... that way, each sub gets 832wattsRMS, which would be your ideal power input to each sub...

in other words, you'd be wrecking shit with a second amp only if it can be daisy chained so that the ending ohmage is 1.34ohms...
