I hate to say this, but maybe the last amp took out a speaker in the process of failing OR. . the kicker amp might have a bad channel output for that speaker... It's rare but happens

Thanks for help dear, so it' not compatibility problem, do you have any idea how I can troubleshoot the problem if the problem from the speaker or the amplifier?

easy way would be to take a AA battery in a holder and touch the positive and negative wires to the speaker terminals if it's not a quick pop out with a quiet pop sound then speaker has blown you should be able to smell burnt wires directly from the come if it's a complete blow if it's not a complete blow then it will sound very rough when u touch the battery to the speaker.
or just try to take ur right speaker from the door and try it on the left side but this requires u taking 2 speakers out
