    That's just the patented square subwoofer technology of Kicker adding extra decibels.

    didnt feel like reading all 5 pages

    but i had a L7 15" and the glue in cone came lose and broke off and rattled around inside the cone. I could only hear it on the high notes. It was too late to save mine the glue chunks got down into the coil and caused alot of frictions and messed up the spider glue and the coil and coil leads.

    well when i first figured it out i took the sub out and on the back side of the cone is some vents, i cut out the vent protection mesh and shook the sub untill all this little black peices of hard glue came out. Put it back in but it still sounded like poo but there was no rattleing. Untill one day it just let go and all i heard was a big pop and then nothing...

    This was the damage it caused




    And dont worry when it first started rattleing i called kicker and they wont replace for free but $250 plus shipping

    what is it set at now?

    check the tinsel leads some times they melt and the wire connectors hit the basket check to see with a ohm meter if your reading 4 ohms on each coil

    Play the sub free air and see if you still have the noise, and if so where it is comming from...



    I had a customer claim a sub I reconed for him had a rattle to it. After checking out his setup I found it was his speaker wire bouncing off the inside of his box making the noise. Some foam and tape around the wires and all was good again.

    Re: HELP ME PLEASE!? Kicker L7 making "Rattling sound"

    ok, i need to know some more info......... first, take a pic of the sub. what year model is it? if i read your earlier post right, you say that your friend hooked op a jumper between both black terminals, and hooked both red terminals to the amp? (one red on (-) and one on(+)? if so, did you try to get it playing loud for a bit? if that scenario happened, you can definitely heat the coil up quick and it will rip itself apart, or at least start to. and, yes, if that started, the loose parts of the coil will rattle like a snare. listen to the sub more in depth, or describe better. does it make a snare sound with the bass thump? does it kind of make a the rattling at low volumes, but go away when you crank it? is it more of a dull rattle, like a cell-phone rattling on the table? these subs are more difficult to repair than most, but not impossible. i would be willing to donate free labor to fix it for you, too, just need to know a lot more specifics about what happened, and what is going on........oh, and does it smell burned?

    The coil probly rubbed and you had it clipping(turned the volume louder then you should have). I doubt the spiders ripped like the early pic posted because he said only happens at higher frequencies, whenever a sub is blown i notice the higher freqs could cause rubbing while the lows play actually alot nicer, but this obviously depends. It will be obvious if it is blown after trying diff songs or tones etc, just play with it. Even itf the spider sagged and needs replace, the coil is probly still messedup and if not you still have to rebuild it.

    Look for the member splaudio on here and ask him to fix it for you.

    Make sure it is wired correctly before you assume it is blown though.
