    Two 12" L5 wiring problems. (Diagram)

    As the title stated I have two 12's, they are 4 ohm DVC l5's.

    >sonicelectronix com/item_11355_Kicker-Solo-Baric-L5-08S12L54.html

    Specs say they handle about 600 rms and 1200 peak. I am powering them with a Hifonics Hifi1500d amp, it is a 1 channel class d mono amp. It is rated for 1 ohms, which is what I want to run the subs at since they are not hitting as hard as I'd like.

    >sonicelectronix com/item_22707_Hifonics-HFi1500D.html

    Now currently I have them wired as the diagram on the kicker website says, which on the kicker site which states they would be at 4 ohms with the coils in parallel and woofers in series. I want to drop them down to 1 ohm, but where I run into the issue is I have the box to go through as well.

    It looks like this, and no other diagrams I can find say anything about the posts having the dots on them.


    Kicker says that is 2 4 ohm DVC subs running at 4 ohm correct?

    Now can someone please explain how to drop them down to 1 Ohm, ever diagram I see is just them wiring it out of a box or in a ported box, or different than the last one. It's ridiculous.

    I appreciate the time.

    Wire pos to neg for each coil on each woofer, run a pos/neg from 1 woofer to the other and run a pos/neg to the amp from the same coil that connects the subs

    Or google "crutchfield wiring diagrams"

    Would this be the correct wiring method then? Like I said I'm a little confused even with all the diagrams.

    So like this then? If so I tried this way and it did not work, and by this I am referring to the diagram I've made myself. I thought I made it apparent the other diagrams that depict the wiring without a box cause me a great deal of confusion. pls halp

    Could someone just confirm my wiring diagram so I know I will be wiring it right? I don't want to think I have the right idea and wire it backwards like the shop I bought it from had them.

    Pretty much just connect all the positives together and all the negatives together, then run it to your amp.

    Diagram looks right.



    Headunit - Pioneer DEH-P8300UB
    Subs - None
    Sub Amp - 2x Crescendo 3kwp
    Front Stage - Polk Audio db651 Coaxial
    Front Amp - None
