    When you say what is the best connection...what are you referring to? Power and ground or hooking up the subs and amps into ohm loads?

    oops my bad... I had to re-read your post. (I didn't get too much sleep last night obviously).

    I hope you have dual 2 ohm voice coil subs.
    You should wire your subs into a 4 ohm load and bridge to your amp and THEN get out some lip gloss and kiss your neighbor's a$$e$ because you are gonna be causing ruckus from the looks of things.

    If you have dual 4 ohm subs you wont get near the sound I think someone with two 15in L&s is looking for. That is BOOOOOOM BOOOOOOOOM right? OR is it BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM?

    Before you take my word for it...let some other folks chime in...I am still tired and might have said something off...i'm not too familiar with those amps.

    Re: Need some help connecting my 15 in licker L7

    yes i have the dual 2 ohn voie coil the new design not the old one S15L7
    by 4 ohm load you mean parallel wiring then bridging into the amp or series wiring then bridging into the amp???? thanks for response just trying to bump

    Re: Need some help connecting my 15 in licker L7

    From what I picked up on that amp..it puts out about 900 watts RMS at 4 ohms.
    You want to wire your subs in SERIES. Doing that will make the sub a 4 ohm load. You can go here to see how its done if you don't know... http://kicker.com/images/manuals/04S...r%20Manual.pdf

    So do that to both subs and bridge them on both amps and you will give those L7s the juice they need for you to go "BUMP" in the night. :thumbsupw

    I looked at your sig and thats a lot of monitors...I just want my 4 and I will be set.

    Once it is all hooked up play Bachbusters Digitally Remastered...Symphony never sounded so **** loud and deep.

    okay, your amps are mono blocks correct? if so, hit up the wiring section and click the wiring diagrams sticky. check for the DVC 2 ohm single sub to one ohm diagram. it tells more than we can explain hence the infamous sayin "a picture is worth a thousand words" if they are 2 channel amps.......dunno.

    good idea SAYWHAT? I just thought about that after lunch.

    Well gonzalez...try either one of our ideas and let us know what happens.
    If we hear of an earthquake in LA today YOU are the one to blame.

    if they are two channel amps u may be able to run one channel to each coil, giving a rated power at 2 ohms (stereo) to each coil.
