    Re: 1 0hm wireing

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




    Two AA Mayhem motored 18's with SSA Zcon parts on 5k.

    Bought From: kickerassman, I Heart Vtec, dadydolas, gameovercca (x2), SPLaudio
    Sold To: Nopony7, 04murdalanche (x2), gameovercca

    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.

    Kicker DX1000.1 (10DX1000.1) <<< 1 ohm stable

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

    According to sonic electronix site.

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