so i just got a kicker dx 1000 mono for my dual 2 ohm kicker 15 inch l7. i need to know how to wire it down to 1 0hm and i need to know where a good place is to set my gain, bass boost, subsonic filter, ect.

is it a one ohm stable amp? i'm not too sure about kicker amps... to wire to one ohm do this:

Well im curious because on kicker subs one positive terminal has a white dot on it and one doesnt. Same with negative

- 02-22-2013NFrazierRe: 1 0hm wireing
the dots represent the same voice coil. so the pos and neg with the dots are voice coil 1, the ones without the dots are voice coil 2.

as far as amp settings that's dependent on car, box, source unit, wiring, amplifier, etc. so we can't really tell you how to set your amp. - 02-22-2013tnotaRe: 1 0hm wireing
So i put a wire from a positive on one voice coil and a wire on the negative for the other voice coil both leading to the negative and posite terminals on the amp?

Kicker dx is not 1ohm stable!!!!!!!!!

- 02-22-2013tnotaRe: 1 0hm wireing
It says it is on sonic electronix

- 02-22-2013Sonic.Re: 1 0hm wireing
Kicker DX1000.1 (10DX1000.1) <<< 1 ohm stable

Kicker DX1000.1 (11DX1000.1) <<< up to 2 ohm stable

According to sonic electronix site. - 02-22-2013tnotaRe: 1 0hm wireing

So how would i wire my sub down to where i get 1000 watts

- 02-22-2013Sonic.Re: 1 0hm wireing
Which amp do you have, Kicker DX1000.1 (10DX1000.1) or Kicker DX1000.1 (11DX1000.1)?

An 11

You can't get to 1000 rms with your dual 2 ohm sub on this amp, the lowest you can go is 4 ohms, hence, 550 watts rms, wired like the diagram below.

A dual 4 ohm sub will take you down to 2 ohms, hence, 1000 watts.
