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

Love the performance of all of them.

subwoofer campeão

subwoofers muito fortes...tem um grave extendido a partir de baixas frequencias,montamos um gm celta com 2x15" l7 conseguimos 148.9 no mtm championchip brasil

L5 12s

I install systems out of my house and i recently put 3 L5 12s in a 1980 cuttlass. i put a bd 1000 rockrord amp on them and i can not beleive these subs they hit so hard that the trunk lock broke had to replace it also put 2 L7 12s in a 1983 malibu and they hit hard too these subs surpasted my expectations the cutlass hits harder than the malibu but it has one more sub too so. the best hitting sub for the price. i love kicker subs.

L7's

@Dirtrider59 I don't think that the L7's just blew that easily. For one you are running to L7's off of a 1500 watt amp when they are clearly each rated at 1000watt RMS. You are also running a 4 ohm DVC along with a 2 Ohm. Chances are its your install that screwed the subs up. I have two 4 Ohm L7's wired in parallel to a create a final load of 2 ohms. These are being pushed by a Kicker ZX1500 and I've cranked those bad boys for a year and absolutely no problems whatsoever. L7's are a very awesome sub, but you have to install them right to hear them at their full potential. It's definitely you not the product.

Anyway, I've been enjoying Kicker products for 6 years and I absolutely love the products they have. I've heard plenty of other subs and none compare to what L7's can dish out. The 2 I have in my silverado are still beating hard. I highly recommend these if you are wanting to add some serious bass to your vehicle!!

HORRIBLE SUBS!!!!!!!

i had 2 L7 15s. one was a 4 ohm DVC and the other was a 2 ohm DVC. i had a 2 ohm DVC was POUNDING, then i blew it. i thought that was my fault i had my amp too high blah blah. went out dropped another $600 got a 4 ohm DVC. today on my way back from school listening to brooks and dunn i blew my second one!!! all this is on a rockford power series 1500W amp tuned about 1/2. explain this one kicker!!! thats the last kicker products im ever buying!!! i had 3 kicker comp 12s that i LOVED. they pounded. but ill never buy another!!!

I love these subs!

I had one older 12" l7 with a cheap Sony 1000 watt amp in a chevy lumina and I was hitting harder than a pair of w7's with 1000 to each in the same car! These are the best subs! Getting a soloX for my jeep! Can't wait

L7 4

L7 is the best sub woffer in the world and in bangladesh it is more demandable day by day.zx750,zx1000,zx1500 amplifier is also demandable.but there is no dealer & supplier of this product.I wish to company will do something to supplies this product in our country.

kicker l7 subwoofer

you're l7 15" series subwoofers are the best bang for the buck. also is the enclosures for these subs are also great by the enclosure size. i perfer kicker subs over jl audio subwoofers only because the bass response from kicker subs are deep and deadly, lol. but seriously though, its kicker hands down.

new kicker 15

just got a new kicker l7 15. Cant wait to build my custom box and put in my center counsil in my Dodge 1500

Kicker l7s all the way

Ive heard these with a 4000 watt peak 2000watt @ 1 ohm soundstream turantula amp and it was hooked up to 2 15 L7s ina 2003 trailblazer and they where just pounding and they where my buddies and i heard him 2 miles atleast or 2 1/2 playing roy jones cant be touched and i heard many other songs in the car i dont recommend 1 ohm unless you wanna risk some problems if you dont have the amps perfect but there the loudest ive ever heard and ive heard alot of subs nothing even close to these there a great sub
