    how should I wire 2 L7s (4ohm) with a Kicker ZX1500.1

    I think i messed up with choosing my system. I ordered 2 12" L7 solos, the box says 4ohm. I bought a kicker zx1500.1 amp. This amp says 1500 watts at 2ohms. Am I going to have a problem with this configuration?

    Does anybody know if a zx amp is stable at 1ohm daily? I can not find anything on the spec sheets for 1 ohm operation.

    Also, if its 1500 watts @ 2 ohm, what would it be at 1 ohm?

    This is going into a chevy silverado under the back seat in the downfire position. I bought a custom made box off the internet. It all fits really nice. Im waiting for my amp to arive in a couple days.

    I would say contact Kicker cause that could be a risk to **** up the subs

    dont worry, some1 on this forum did run it at 1ohm and did just fine. but youll need more watts to get out what you want from the solos.

    Yea I would spring for the zx2500.1. Or you can buy another zx1500.1 and give each sub 1500w at 2ohm

    **** that sux. I wonder if it would be stable at 1 ohm. I wouldnt risk it on mine. I would like it though for the option too, but I'm cool with 2 ohms.
