kicker isnt known for aroud here for qualtiy subs. tend to not last very long. they arent the worse sub you could have bought, but they arent the best.

I mean, I would say they are decent... If you paid full price for those, honestly there is a WHOLE LOT more you could have gotten better for the money. All that really matters is the fact that YOU like em. But if you are willing to sell and get better, we are here to help.

just make sure your gain is set right and don't over work those subs and it should last. they aren't the prettiest sounding subs but any type of bass is better than no bass.

if your screen has sub outs....u should be able to find it...usually there are labels, they may have fallen off.

run a pair of rcas down the middle of your car, from your screen to your sub amp, and try every rca out on the amp unitll u get the sub one

you will know it is the sub one when u change the sub controls on the screen

if u dont have sub outs, then it doesnt matter bc u dont have sub controll, so any rcas will do. try to get the rears tho

you dont even need to wire down the middle...u can just permanently install them and just keep switchin at the screen till you find it
