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

WRONG! - BUT THANK YOU FOR PLAYING...

When I was competing, I set the first World record ever set by anyone using L7 12", and I tested the box by setting it on my driveway and plugging it into the AC wall outlet.

2 @ L7 12", D4s, Ported @ 56hz, series/paralleled coils into a 120v outlet and THEY LOVED IT!

Since I was sponsored I had all the back-up L7s I needed, plus I could swap out for a set of new ones from a local dealer if I needed to.

I gave them the real-deal test, kept it playing for almost a full minute directly plugged into the 120v AC outlet until my neighbor, Peter, walked over from across the street and begged me to allow him to finish his nap.
He said he was laying on the floor napping when it started to vibrate, and he knew it had to be me testing something.

The following weekend I went to the 2x in Highlands, Ca, competed with that 'well-broken-in' set of L7 12" and had the best score ever @ 153.7 with a single battery & 1KW amp.

I helped 3 different competitors who decided to switch from RF to Kicker. They preferred the Kicker SQ, saw HIGHER dB numbers, and did so without frying their L7s.

Designed properly, there is almost nothing out there that sounds as good or hits as hard as a set of ported D2 L7 10", coils in series, each with a bridged ZX450.2 powering it, and don't forget large enough power cable to handle the current draw.

Happy Hammering

2011 s15 l7

I have just bought 2 l7 15"(2011) 4ohms with a kicker zx 1500.1 amp and they can hit hard.I'am far away and people still hear me coming.I'am still thinking of getting 2 more 15" pretty soon but with more amps.I hear the Fi's can hit too but I would still go with KICKER no matter what!!!!!.....

RUSSIA

KICKER IT s good

don't get any better

I have 2 of the '04 12" L7s hooked up to a Hifonics Hfi2500d and a KX3 crossover in my ext. cab dodge ram with a pre-fab box and WOW!! I need to take my moonvisor off, patch the holes and remount it cuz it ripped the front bolts out flexing so hard!! These L7s are by far the best sub i've ever owned and they are monsters!

Great Prodduct

I currently have two L7 12s hooked to a Kicker ZX1500.1 and they are currently in their break in period. They are set up in a single cab chevy truck built in a downfire setup custom box. Once my installers turn the amp up after the break in period is over with, this is gonna be nasty. So Kicker, keep doing what you doing, you guys rock. Comment coming from Philadelphia, MS

Kicker Subs and Amps

Kicker is the best.

I have $ L7 10's n my Volvo

I have $ L7 10's n my Volvo wagon & will NEVER go bak 2 a round speaker again, Livin load with Kicker & luvin it!!!!!
