Hi guys, I have owned this amp for years now, recently bought a new car and decided to get the amp and L7 solo baric out the shed, problem is, the head unit in my car is crap and I am getting a all the freqs coming through. I could of swore it had the modules when i bought it to make it play at 60hz and 80hz, but all I have is the chips but not the actual modules.

is there a way to get round this?

thanks

Kicker XS100 here are sample pics of my amp.

Is that your amplifier or a picture of one like it?

If I remember correctly:

The MDP module is a bypass and allows all frequencies to pass.

The SWX is the subwoofer module and should include both a high pass and a low pass crossover. The little dip switches control whether the amplifier is high pass and the outputs(RCA) are lowpass or reversed with the amp being lowpass and the outputs being highpass. The chips are interchangeable for the frequency. There is both a highpass and a lowpass chip socket.

I'm not sure what the ZRX module does.

I would love to find a manual for all of these modules because I have an EEM module and can not remember what all the dip switches do.

Thanks for your reply, but maybe I have not made my self clear.

The pic is not of my actual amp but I do have this amp.

I dont have the ZRX or the SWX, not sure if I ever did or if its lost, so right now I need the amp to work on low pass, rather than on bypass. but as all I have is the little brown chips and no modules i was wondering if there is anything i can buy or do to make the sub play like a sub.

there is a guy on ebay usually has a couple modules on there. I have bought the TWX (tweeter) from him and will be buying th MRX soon. I'm pretty sure he has an SWX listed. His name is imeverlast. The ZRX is low pass only and only for the amp it is in (I think) where as SWX is low and high so you can have it low for the XS and send the High pass to another amp.

I may have a ZRX laying around i can sell you....have to look. They are pretty pricey online. You could almost buy a ZR120 or 240 with the module for not much more than module itself.

he is already bypassing it by using the MDP module.

oh, wait...looks like he doesnt even have that one. I know I have one I could let go of for not too much. Let me know.

I have an MDP, but you not understanding what I am asking.

right now the amp is pushing out all freqs because all freqs is coming through the amp.

what I want to do is have it only accept or send a low pass freq. but I dont have the other modules to do it. only the MDP and the small 60hz and 80hz chips.

my question was is there a way to make it use the chips with out the module?

my answer at the moment is buying a crossover. simple.

is it me or do you guys skim read?

Actually...I told you I have a spare ZRX module and I gave you the name of an Ebay seller that has several SWX's available...which is exactly what you need. Dont buy an external x-over....way more hassle and money if all you need is to low pass you XS. The SWX will low pass the amp its in and high pass out. $40-50 and its plug-n-play.

And Beatsdownlow told you who could help you bypass if that was an option.

And no you cant use the chips with out the modules.

Do londoners just ignore help?

Hey guy, This is Imeverlast. AKA The KICKERMAN. or Md Beames - whatever. LOL

I realize I might be a little late on the subject here But i was just googling around and came accross your disscussion.

if you still have a need -

i will send you ANY manual you want free - just ask. and yes i have the modules so just let me know what ones you want or need and that shall be done.

I have been slowly running out of some models. for instance I believe i just hit the rock bottom Of the RGX's -

Anyway - Hit Me up. I have all sorts of things that would be helpful if you have 1 blown tweet - say R19? R25? I can hook you up and you dont have buy a whole new set - see? stuff like that.

EEM factory manual can be in your Face in seconds - just ask.

Hope this helps. doesn't matter how long it's been. hit me Up I been doing this for 13 years now. same O same O. imeverlast - eBay style - you can contact me there and I wil shoot you a email back through [email protected] or just write direct. doesn't matter. justlet me know who you are and what you want.

I don't have any modules for my kicker zr240. I did a bypass I found on a forum and it allows highs...very loud highs..I want lows because my amp is used for subs ..is there a bypass for lows?

Don't know why you would only get highs, do you have your signal xover'ed?


Image is from Perry, hope he doesn't mind me using it if he does mod's please remove it.

Hello.

I have no clue what you did to by pass. when you use a bypass you allow all the signal to reach the output. the full signal, the crap and everything. a By pass is only used if the amps (More than one) are daisy chained and what it does is allow the first amp that is already equipped with a module, process the signal to the second amp and so on. 3rd 4th and one if you like.

all the amps have to have a module though. The other use for a bypass module in a SINGLE amp would be if you have the signal Pre amp processed. or if you are using Inline processors.

you do not want to run uncleaned full signals to your tweets, mids or subs EVER unless you just want to cook them up and use them for stinky paper weights.

I have never had to Make a module By Pass because I have by pass modules but I could do it. you just have to know what contacts to bridge and that can bee seen if you have a By pass module right there and you have the back off the amp to see where the regular module bypass goes in. then just duplicate that action and make a card that simulates the MDP.

No By pass is going to work for highs or lows on it's own though. you have to have a TWX for Highs, MRX for Mods and there are several options for Bass, off the top of my head SWX, RGX, ZRX <-- (zrx does not process for secondary amps and has no removable chips ) KEQ, EEM, EQM, AEQ, there are more, thats just of the top of my head. form what you stated you have i think you will need SWX or RGX with 80Hz chip sets. they will allow 60Hz 80 Hz and 100 Hz.

zrx is the one that came with the ZR amps installed. SWX is a Bass upgrade is bad to the bone for the bridged ( Mono ) mode for the ZR'z The RGX is cool because it allows for the remote gain to be up on the dash and still acts exactly as the SWX. Like the DX 350 and dx700 do. DX are already D class though. your ZR is a/b. 4 ohm stable. DX are 2ohm. you can run a zr at 2 but it will get hot and you have to watch what you are doing because of that.

getting off track now. let me know what Questions you have. BEFORE you blow something. LOL

TTYL./

pre amp signal processing will fix you up if you are running MDP Bypass. so say you are running KX3 Or KQ3 you could set your sub out in that for the signal you want the amp to play. Just be aware that the amp your out put wires go to will push every signal you send it. if you are sending a poop signal it will get amplified and shot straight to your subs. I haven't ever had to do this. If i use pre amp, i still use the proper module for the job just to be 100%. i dont see why it would not work though.

also if you have some gnarly inlines that could handle the power you could filter a full signal . haven't seen any that would do with the massive power I push to subs however. but tweets are done like that frequently.

Plus.
The all the modules I have seen have a switch on them to bypass the crossover circuit.

For my bypass I did what's shown in the pic on a few post up. I linked the upper left most with the bottom left most and the upper right most with the bottom right most. It boosted the amp so I could at least hear the music coming from the amp. Without bypass I couldn't hear anything. It doesn't bump my sub's tho it just turned them into large speakers instead of sub's.
