can you make the amps work together? the 12"s can do 750rms list, prolly more then that... i think they will be a little under powered... im going to be running 2 12" l7s in my car off of a zx1500.1....

:word: underpowered for sure, and it sucks that you can run the subs together. You can get 2 kicker ZX750.1s on woofersetc.com for like $600

Just hook both amps up to one sub. You cant lose THAT many DBs by going that route. Can you?

You can get around $200 for each one depending on how new they are... Heck, If I didnt already order my M1005 I would have taken them off your hands...

I would recommend you just hook them up like that or sell them... What type of box are you using? They will still beat with 500 watts RMS... Dont think they wont...

Wire each woofer in Parallel to its own amp...

these l7s are power hungry subs they will take all they can get. not giving a sub the power it needs will burn up voice coils and youll blow them. i havve one new 07 12" L7 and i am powering it with 1/0 to the new sx1250.1 and it hits hella hard in my single cab. if you get the new sx amps you can link them together to get twice the power.

the SX amps are nice, but overrated IMO. You can get the ZX1500 and ZX2500 for cheaper than the SX1250, granted the SX is 1ohm stable and would be ideal in his situation, they're cheaper. And he couldnt strap the SX amps togewther if he wanted to, if he strapped them they're only 2ohm stable

dang dang dang!// now I really f..ed up...i hooked them up and the sound is amazing it hits so hard and clean....ONE BIG BUT,though one speaker sounds like if theres a cable touching/hitting it or when you out your finger and touch them. they make a wierd sound...maybe a voice coil is burned like you said...."rattling" when i turn it up high..any one knows if its repairable?? or should i just take it to a sound shop and leave you guys alone now hahaha....i want to sell both amps now...this what happens when you dont know shit about sounds and you start buying and hooking shit up your self..haha:insane:

Get a good box built for them, My buddy has 2 L7 12's in a really small vented box with a 2000 watt amp powering them and they really do not sound that good!

Your not going to melt the coil that fast... :imo Unless maybe you where clipping the amp...

One of the reasons I dont like L7's... We've had so many of them crap out on us with very light use...

With everything off, press on the woofer directly in the middle with the palm of your hand... It should move freely... If the coil is melted, you will feel it...

And yes, shit happens when you buy stuff with out doing your homework...:rofl2:
