ok im new at the car stereo thing and i really want 2 of the new kicker 12 inch L7s. these are 750 watt rms and 1500 watt max each. although they are 4 ohm. what amp do any of you think would sufficiently powere these bad boys? or better yet, what amp specifications would work best? any examples and/or help would greatly be appreciated
Ideally you would want an amp that could put out 1500 watts at 1 ohm, if you weren't afraid to try it, could be risky. I would say hifonics, but there have been some issues with that, so look for a good amp that puts out about 1500 watts. the kicker would be a good amp for a ported enclosure cause they are underrated and it takes less power, the bigger the box.
exactly, HO alt before a cap. i would say a 1200.1 kicker would be fine. it actually puts out about 1400rms. i would go with a ported box,at least thats what we did for my friends 2 L7 15's. LOW LOW BASS!
what amp does your friend use on those two l7 15's?
