View Full Version : Sub Hook Up Help????

05-03-2006, 03:15 AM
Can anyone tell me what type of connector to use to hook up my Kicker L5 12" sub. Take alook at the pictures below. The sub has some wierd (to me) spring loaded shaft that when depressed, reveals a hole. I assume that a the speaker wire simply gets inserted into that hole. I am using Stinger Expert Series 14 AWG wire for the sub.

You nailed it, just compress the spring and stick the end of your speaker wire in there. Its actually a better hook up because you have a direct connection from wire to speaker without any terminals.

Just push down, insert bare wire, release. Make sure it goes all the way through for maximum contact (less resistance)

Just as stated above! Piece of cake!

Thanks guys - that is what I thought.

Now, I have another problem that I just started a thread for. I can't get any sound out of the sub. The amp is getting power, but I can not get any AC Voltage out of the Sub RCAs at the amp. I checked to make sure the sub was switched on at the head unit. NOTHING.

Can anyone help?
