Solo-Baric L7
SOLO-BARICL7
KICKER's authentic and original square subwoofer. Ground-breaking design that started it all. Imitated, but NEVER duplicated.

Solo-Baric L7 Subwoofer technology continues to maintain the title as the first and foremost authority on bass. It was the world’s first patented square subwoofer, supplying the extra decibels needed for deep, musical bass in a mobile audio system.

“Bass is what we are all about… it’s our specialty,” KICKER founder and President Steve Irby said. “From the very start, we’ve been known for rich sound – it’s the KICKER heritage, and it’s carried out through all we do.”

The Solo-Baric’s cutting-edge, square-sub design ultimately means more cone area, more air displacement and, therefore, more decibels than a conventional round woofer. With a patented corner-ribbed, double-stitched Santoprene® surround helping to hold the massive motor structure in place, the Solo-Baric L7 provides durability at a high excursion without compromising sound quality.

“We’ve got the accuracy, but we also have the intensity,” Irby said. “When we listen (during testing), we listen to it loud – we know there is no distortion. We make sure of it.”

Available in 8-, 10-, 12- and 15-inch models, the Solo-Baric L7’s highly-engineered motor structure handles huge power and provides extreme output. With heavy-duty, ribbon tinsel leads intertwined with semi-progressive spider technology, the square sub promises dependability when pushed to the limit, while dual voice coils with high-temp copper windings easily handle intense heat and power levels.

In addition to the unshakable structure, the Solo-Baric revolves around KICKER’s most advanced cone design, the injection-molded SoloKon™, which adds targeted strength for reliable performance and accurate response. The 360-degree, constant-contact back bracing adheres directly to every contour of the SoloKon square cone, maximizing the mechanical coupling of the motor while making the woofer as strong and responsive as possible.

Venting in SoloKon’s back-bracing and along the perimeter of the spider landing provides maximum air-flow to cool the voice coils during operation. The woofer utilizes a high-mass, extended pole piece to aid in heat dissipation.

The distinctive cast-aluminum basket provides a strong motor foundation, maintaining a low temperature and a mild magnetic field for the most efficient motion, as well as protecting the Solo-Baric’s specialized inner workings. The Solo-Baric L7 woofer remains available in 2-Ohm or 4-Ohm DVC and conducts business from a sealed- or vented-box application.

  • Square vs. Round: More cone area results in greater sound pressure produced by the woofer
  • The massive motor structure of the L7 paired with KICKER's patented square-woofer technology provides extreme output capability
  • Heat-sinking cast aluminum basket provides a strong motor foundation and maintains low temperatures during long-term operation
  • Injection-molded SoloKon™ is our most advanced cone design, adding targeted strength for reliable performance and accurate response
  • Patented corner-ribbed, double-stitched Santoprene® surround provides durability at high excursion with uncompromised sound quality
  • 360° constant-contact back bracing adheres directly to every contour of the cone to maximize mechanical coupling of the motor, maintaining precise linear excursion while making the woofer as strong and responsive as possible
  • Heavy-duty speaker leads are stitched and glued to the spider rolls for reliable performance when pushed to the limits
  • Progressive-roll spider keeps stress away from the glue joint of the spider landing for long-lasting reliability
  • Venting in the back-bracing of the cone and perimeter of the spider landing provides maximum air-flow to cool the voice-coil during operation
  • Dual Voice Coils with high-temp copper windings handle extreme power levels for long durations without burning out
  • T-cut top plate extends the magnetic field of the motor, adding balanced motor strength throughout the entire excursion path of the voice coil
  • Solid-dome extended pole piece maintains precise voice-coil control and aids in heat dissipation

Nice Subwoofers

Ive heard almost all kickers and they sound real nice and make my trunk flex. Right now im trying to get 4 Solo Baric L7's 15's for my 1996 gmc jimmy s-15. Looking forward to getting them because i haven't had those yet.

I have 1 L5 and it dumps for

I have 1 L5 and it dumps for being single but the only true way is the l7. I had an l7 and learned that I fried the sub from not enough ohms. People take this as advice. Over power never underpower.

one of the loudest!

one of the loudest!

I OWN THESE, I HAVE THE LOUDEST SYSTEM IN TOWN WITHOUT QUESTION

I have an 01 astro van with a wall of 4 15 inch L7 2 ohms ran in series to 1ohm final impedance powered by a 5500 watt 1 ohm stable power acoustik monoblock gothic series, sorry kicker, your amps cost too much. Im also running 1600 watts on the highs and another 500 on the mids. I have 4 horns, 3 3x15 inches, one powered by a 1000 watt driver, another has a 2000 watt driver but im only putting mids through that one cause its 16 ohms n them coils burn up. Im putting mids in another 3x15 horn with a 600 watt driver and i have another pa style horn 9x19 powered by another 1000 watt pushing highs I also have two power acoustik bullet tweeters on the corners of the windsheild. I also have a 2000 watt kinetik dry cell battery. My roof flexes n my sytem screams with all the sounds you can imagine and it sounds damn. I hooked up switches so i can turn on/off any amp at any time so i can listen to either highs, mids, lows or stock radio or any combination of them, my system is pretty serious. All in an 01 astro van that still seats 8 people and i can proudly say i made it like that, i built it and its the best, at least the best im seeing and by a long shot and ive been told many times that i should go to shows and i think i might but i haave no idea what kinda dbs im hitting but if i would guess im def over 150 but i'll find out eventually

De-construction L7 style

So I bought two L7's from a guy who obviously didn't know what he had cause they had never even been warmed up. First time I pushed em hard I got that new speaker "heat smell". Lol. I put them in the trunk of my '05 civic coupe. I had to have a specially built box that was built in the trunk otherwise it wouldn't fit. I ran em in parallel, hooked up to a fosgate prime 1000, and they are friggin insane. Once I had my kenwood in dash screen installed I decided to heat em up real good and had a small rock chip in my windshield. The kickers effectively removed the windshield from my car. It also popped my trunk open with a small nudge from a speed bump. I've had several systems that sounded good but nothing like what these beasts will do. After all my experience never again will I buy audio equipment that doesn't have the kicker nameplate. These are the baddest beasts on the planet. I've had them for about a year and they still amaze me every time I let em breathe. Thanks kicker. Y'all build em like a boss.

kickers kick a$$

kickers kick a$$

slamming beast's

Recently bought two l7 15's and couldn't be more satisfied with them soo much bass it makes my vision go blurry everytime i blast my system lol. i luv it so much im going 4 15's next year and go deaf if u want bass and u want ur moneys worth l7' s are the way to go my amigo is a beast thts wht my friends have nicked named my ride .

I have personal experience

I have personal experience with the Kicker Solo Baric S10L7. I find that they are a great subwoofer.

l7 15

I switched from 2 12'' comp vr's and a dx1000w amp....which banged very loud also very good subs and got me one l7 15 I got it in a 3sq ft custom ported box..same dx1000w amp...I can't even turn it up past 12 on my cd player and it sounds like my cars gonna fall apart ..there's no room in my trunk I even had to take out my spare tire the sub is huge lol definitely living loud... love kicker
