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

kicker L5s and L7s

I have 2 12"L7s with 1000.1 kicker amp in a ford contour, beats like a champ!! I used to have the L5s but they couldn't handle the power. Thank kicker for warranty! Went threw 5 sets. Finnaly traded for the L7s. Love them, but still miss the L5s...still lookin for good deal on 2500.1 kicker amp. Keep it up kicker!

L7 10's

About 5 years ago my cousin had purchased a pair of kicker solo baric L7 10's from spangler sound in oroville, ca. A custom sealed box was built for the back of his yota and those things "KNOCKED ON POINT", only running the JL 500/1 to push em. I just recently purchased those solo's from my cousin for a killer price and here I am 5 years later with the same set of Solo's now in my boat. I cant belive the quality of sound that these things deliver in all applications, and not to mention they have been pounding for the last 5 years and show no signs of stopping. Plus I like the 3D view of the "S" on the speaker when it's on knock.

my 12" L7

I have my 12" L7 4ohm in the kicker box on my 04 silverado extended cab behind my seat with a 2000 watts amp pushing it. I have had this set up for 2yrs now and no complains from me! its the best sub ever! Believe me when i tell you it knocks! im looking to add the second one some time this month! Kicker living loud!!!

Kicker L7 10

I have 2 of these L7 10"s in a 2005 Toyota Tacoma extended cab. The box is 4 cubic feet and I promise you I can hairtrick with abour 1200 watts RMS. You will not go wrong with these subs. If you want some hard evidence check out : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_N-86-eqJeE

These are great!!

L7

I just installed 4 12' L7 kickers with two Hifonics 2000 amps. The pressure in my truck is too much to the point I broke my windshield. The best subs I have, way better then RF t2s.

My Brothers L7's

My brother has two L7's in a '99 Z71 ext. cab with a hifonics brutis amp it hits so hard you cant see road signs when your driving. And you cant swallow a drink it hits so hard! Kicker, the only way to go, if you dont wanna blow!

OMFG!!

DAMN! ibought 2 L7 12s in a ported box with a zx 2500.1 with 0 guage wire and these mo-fos hit so hard! they sound so tight and clean with the rest of my set up...if you got the money and want a bad as@ sound do your self a favor and buy these subs...BTW neighbors hate me now :(

I am currently running one 07

I am currently running one 07 L7 12 running off one ZX1500.1 in my own custom ported box and i have hit 141.5Db.

kicker L7's 15's

I have an 05 Escalade with two L7 15's and a 2600 brutus powering them and i beat the block down everytime i turn my truck on no complaints kicker all day.

2 12" L7 with ZX 2500.1

these are some of the best subs out, i have 2 of them in a 2000 cougar with a kicker zx 2500.1 amp and these things crush! these subs can handle alot of power, best sounding subs i have ever heard by far.
