    Got the amp all wired this morning. Wired the sub for 1 ohm. Gain isn't even 1/4 of the way up and it hits hard !!!!! I'm very happy with the way it sounds. Oh hell yeah !!!!!!! It's very impressive for just one 12" sub.

    Yes, Kicker L7 12" DVC 2 ohm per voice coil. My amp does 1400 watts at 1 ohm. Gain is set at about 1/4 of the way up.

    That's cool. I'm curious if you tried to wire it in series for a 4 ohm load? Back when I messed with stereos I found that the sub(s) would sound the best if I ran them at the highest ohms possible and the gain up a bit, provided that the amp had enough power. With your amp at 4 ohms it should still have enough power for one 12. Just a suggestion for if you're really bored one day... :D

    I had it wired at 4 ohm when I had it in the Stratus. Had too, my power wire was too small and the amp went into protection at 1 ohm. At 4 ohm, my amp only does 350 watts. But at 1 ohm, it does 1400 watts. I'm talking RMS not peak. The Kicker L7 is rated at 750 watts RMS. It sounds really good at 1 ohm. [​IMG]

    Wish y'all could hear it, it's damn impressive for only 1 sub.
