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

Solobaric L7 12's

these are some of the best sub's for any vehical. i have a dodge ram 1500 single cab and a custom built box and an 1800 watt class d audiobanh amp and together these speakers are beast

2 12" L7's in eldorado

I have 2 12 inch L7's in my eldorado powered by a Hifonics brutus 2000 watt amplifier powering them at 1 ohm. They are so loud even though I have the gain on 1/4 and the SUb level on my head unit is at -2

L7 SUBWOOFERS

I WORK IN CAR STEREO. L7'S ARE BY FAR THE WOOFER THAT I SEE BLOWN THE MOST. ROCKFORD FOSGATE FOREVER.

Two L7 12"

I have two kicker 12" L7's with a crappy Kenwood amp, I believe it's the KAC510d mono 1800.1 and I placed 2nd in a competion with decibels of 138.9... And that's with the kenwood amp that can't handle the subs (goes into protective mode often). Now imagine strapping just a zx1000.1 kicker amp to it!!! I would of placed first in my class without a doubt and I could of beaten people who are in higher classes than me! The L7's are amazing I give them a 5 star rating even with the kenwood amp that can Hardly handle them.

loudest subs ive owned!

I have had a pair of 2008 10 in L7s and man they bump so hard it knocked my driver side window right off the bracket! These are the best and loudest subs ive ever owned hands down. Kicker is an excellent company and they should keep making these outstanding subs.

Kicker 12 inch L7's

This by for is the best set of speakers I've ever owned. It doesn't matter if your 18 and want to be heard across town or you want a quality of sound never heard in your vehicle before.
I myself, I'm 58 years old and still rockin, but I also want that top quality sound that comes from the Kicker L7's. Currently I have 2-12 inch Kicker L7's with 2 Kicker 750.1 amps pushing them in my Chevy Tahoe and as my money allows I plan on moving up to 2 Kicker 1000.1 amps.
What more can I say. It just doesn't get any better than a set up by Kicker!!!!

I have a pair of the 2007 L7
