    i need a good 1ohm amp thats doesn't go into protection mode when you pump it.
    right now i have 2 10" L7 solo barics. dual 4 ohms....if i would have got them dual 2 then i would be in business. maybe.

    Well it looks like you are in luck 2 4ohm DVC woofer wired in series parallel creates a 1ohm load. To see how to wire this go to rockfordfosgate.com click RFTECH then click wiring wizard. Looks like your in business

    For around the same price you can get

    Memphis 1100
    Dei 1100
    Autotek 2400 <-- a little more than 500
    RF BD 1500 <-- Also a little more
    Cadence A7HC 1500x1 @1ohm About 430-450. good amp too

    yeah i know it equals 1ohm. i have it now hooked up to my jbl 1200.1 at 1 ohm, but my problem is that after a half hour of pumping the ***** out of the amp it goes into protection mode for a little while....you see what i mean? thats why i was shopping for another jbl 1200.1. so that i can use one amp per speaker at two ohms each...
    and to tell you the truth i have the gains of the amp only at 40%.

    i was thinking of building an amp rack with the two jbl's and some fans and also a neon light, but i ran across the kicker amp, and i read that it had built in fans, a subsonic filter and a bass boost remote. so i thought i'll come to the amp forum and see what you guys thought of it...........


    but i'll give it to you black and ranger......after all we been through the last couple of days, you and him were the first to respond to this post and i respect that.....for real.

    If I am correct the L7s are 750 rms, and you have 2...the Autotek XS-1500.1 would be a good match....

    well the 12" L7's are 750 rms. but the 10" L7's i have are 600 rms each...but i'll look into that amp......extra power never hurt anyone.
