    Icon30 old school solos, all input needed

    hey guys my friend wants to buy a system. he has a 02 civic with a dual brand head unit ( dual i know, will be upgraded in the future hopefully). hes found a good deal on some old school solobarics. all the info he has is: Kicker- MODEL # S12D

    i want to pick a good amp for him so he doesnt overpower them. he said hed like an old school kicker amp or a jl amp but other opinions are welcome.

    remember it will be 2 12's. i dunno the ohms or number of voice coils as the add doesnt say. although im hopoing they only had one type of model back then. thanks guys.



    soon to be installed in my custom f-150.

    They were available in single 2,4, and 8 ohm coils I believe. A good 300-800 watts total wil do them nicely.



    A bunch of SSA stuff.

    Are they the round ones? I have the 99' Kicker product book with the specs on them.

    yup, I had some of them as well, and they were great. You dont need much space at all or power to get them going good

    You've got some messed up info there. The S10D requires a .66 cf box and 450 watts while the S12D requires a .88 cf box and 600 watts.
    All the info I have on the S12D's are: 2,4,or 8 ohm impedance, 600 wrms, sens. 87.7 dB, freq resp. 20-100 Hz, mounting depth 5 5/8", mounting hole dia 11 1/8", recommended sealed box .88 cf. For two of those, depening on what ohm they are, look for a Kicker ZR1000 or a XS100 or look at the newer line like the KX1200.1 and SX1250.1

    Analogkid's info was accurate.
