2 kicker l7s help with wiring

alright so im thinkin of startin a new system, and i want to buy 2 kicker 15 inch l7s 4ohm, and i was wondering if a LANZAR MXA282 which puts out about 1000rms x 2 channel at 4 ohm. would this be suitable for the amp, or would this not work becasue the subs are dual voice coil. If not suitable which amp would be better?

thanks for the help.

The amp will work fine with either the coils in parallel and each sub wired to it's own channel or the coils in series and both drivers in parallel to the amp using the bridged outputs.

I would be a little leery about the claimed power levels tho......on the Lanzar site they don't list the distortion level or frequency range for the amp....seems a little vague to me.........

The L7's are dual voice coil and come in either 2 or 4 ohm.
be very carefull when you buy an amp, it has to match your set up.

If it was up to me, i'd get the dvc 4 version, so you can paraleel the coils and make each a 2 ohm load, then, run an amp for each.
mrd-1005 or d3000spl will do a real 1000 rms @ 2 ohm.
or you need a bigger amp that will do 2000 wrms @ 1 ohm.

I wouldn't touch lanzar.
