    yea, i set the gain with a dmm, and had all my settings right. i would randomly hear a pop sometimes. thats why i wanted to free-air it. so i free aired it at 2 ohms which is 800 rms with the gain completely down. i started moving it up little by little and about 1/3 of the subs power it just popped and started scraping.

    Re: just blew my l5

    Did u put 800 to the pair or just to one?

    Did u honestly think double rms wouldnt pop it? (if u had it hooked to one >.>)

    But yea thats sad, my JBL p1022 is 400rms and it can take 800 @ 1ohm all day. Sounded great on my pr1000.1

    Get a sundown SA10 or SA12, they would love that amp. 150 and 155 shipped bran new from sundown

    Re: just blew my l5

    dude, l5s die easy. i had a kx1200.1 on 2 of em and the amp was tuned correctly, no clipping and after playing em for maybe 15 minutes not even at full bore id start to smell coil burning and turn it off and see smoke coming from the ports i did this like 10 times before i sold them to a kid that was only running 300 watts to each. they kept playing but the coils were gettin thermal

    It's only an L5 man, nothing to start a brand war with.
    That does sound fun though.

    Re: just blew my l5

    It sounds like u might have just been over doing the wattage on them maybe clipping the amp could have done them in who knows but yea id go with something besides kicker now. Are you still going to use the same sound stream amp?

    not about the L5 in all honesty, or the brand. its the fact that the OP is blaming something else for his stupidity is all.
