    Speaker/Amp Setup Advice

    Is this a good combination for these speakers?

    2 of these:

    KICKER S15L7
    15" subwoofer with dual 4-ohm voice coils
    Power range: 50-1000 RMS watts
    Peak power: 2000 watts
    Frequency range: 18-100 Hz
    Sensitivity: 88.5 dB
    SoloKon aluminum-treated composite cone with Santoprene surround
    Cast-aluminum basket
    Mounting depth: 8-3/16"
    Sealed box volume: 1.5-6.00 cubic feet
    Ported box volume: 3.0-6.0 cu. ft.

    With this amp pushing both:

    KICKER ZX1500.1
    RMS Power: 1500 Watts x 1 @ 2 Ohm
    RMS Power : 750 Watts x 1 @ 4 Ohm
    Number Of Channels: 1
    Low Frequency response: 20 Hz
    High Frequency Response: 200 Hz
    Signal To Noise Ratio: >95dB
    Active Crossover: 24 db/octave, variable 50Hz-200Hz, Low pass only
    KICKQ Boost: Variable to +18dB
    12db/octave subsonic filter defeatable at 25Hz
    Built In Crossovers: Yes
    Channel Separation: Yes
    Class D Design
    Gain and crossover frequency control
    Protection light indicator
    Mosfet Powered
    Soft Start turn-on
    Protection Circuit
    Remote bass control
    Dimensions: 20" (L) x 2-1/8" (H) x 9-5/8" (D)

    And can I leave the original 4guage wire (maybe 8, I forget) that I'm using to my battery right now? Or do I have to change it for the high wattage? I don't think I'll run over 1000 with that setup though?

    Re: Speaker/Amp Setup Advice

    I'd opt for the dual 2 ohm voice coil subs and a ZX2500.1 amp. But if that's the amp you have, then I'd run only one dual 4 ohm voice coil sub and send it the brunt of what the 1500.1 can provide.

    x2

    two 15 L7's would be very sad with 1500 @ 1ohm.

    EDIT: oops i meant 2ohm
