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

THESE SPEAKERS R WORTH EVER PENNIES TRUST ME FROM EXPERIENCE..........

2 l7 10s

I recently purchased my two solobaric l7 10s and I have em hooked up in parrell at 2 ohms with a 2ohm stabled amp. An Audiobahn 800. as of right now I have the amp turned up half way because I dont have a true 4 gauge wire on for my power. but I must say that it slams tremendously. and I love em. Im lookin to buy a Kicker zx 750.1 amp soon. KICKER KICKS THE BEST

Two 15" l7's

I have 2 15" l7's and they are one of the hardest hitting subs I have ever heard. My neighbor has two JL w7's that he is always bragging about but they don't compare to my subs. I have them running on a DX1000.1 and they pound. My friends can't even stand to sit in the car because of all the bass :) I'm thinking if upgrading to either a 1500 or a 2000 watt amp but until then I am completly satisfied with the set up I have now. So if your looking to buy some L7's I recommend them to anyone they are a great and relliable product.

2 12 L7s

I have this beast hooked into my 2002 impala which has more trunk than a car should have. So when i had the kicker box which came with them it made me stand apart from every other impala in town. Now that I'm in showcasing kicker skills I have upgraded my box which fit my trunk perfectly, and really blows away the comp. Unfortunately the box is too big for just 2, so kicker look out I'm coming for 2 more

L7 not all that its cracked up to be.

i Recently purchased 2 S12L7 for my 2008 chevy impala. they are both powered by a single SoundStream DTR1.1 1700D amp on a 2 ohm load. The gain, bass boost, and bass control were all less than 50%. The head unit was at 0 bass and 0 on bass booster, and high pass freq was off. There was no extra bass going to these subs. The following day on the was to work i was playing the stereo on normal volume (maybe 11 on volume control out of 45) and i start to smell smoke. I pull over and open my trunk and smoke is coming out of the ports of this box. Voice coils are blazing hot. i had these subs less than 3 days and they failed. Looks like i am going back to the W7s

2 12in l7s

just got 2 12in l7s in my jeep grand cherokee hooked up to a hifonics hfi 3000d with 4gauge wiring and shit is slammmin...only had them for 2 days and on the 2nd day i got pulled over by a cop who was 4 cars back on a main city street if that tells you anything ha

2- L7's in Lexus LS460

I told my audio engineer that I wanted tons of high quality kick ass bass in my '07 LS460. After measuring my airspace and dynamics of my car, he decided on 2 L7's in a ported enclosure. To get dimensions for the box he contacted a Kicker Engineer, who utilized a computer program to design the box for us. Large port that comes through the fold down arm rest in the rear seat, with the subs firing upwards through a cutout in the rear deck is what we ended up with. JBL 2400 watt amp to run off the stock Marc Levinson setup, minus the factory subwoofer. Replaced the 6x9's in the driver and passenger door with some Kevlar 6x9's, and added an AudioControl processor in the trunk to convert signal from the Marc Levinson amp, along with a total of three gel cell batteries. Two in the rear, and a matching one in the engine compartment.

I have to say, the sound quality is amazing, with every nuance of all types of music coming through without any boominess. It is all about the design of your box! Plus, with the JBL bass control know, I can flex my front windshield and still maintain incredible audio quality. Kicker all the way from now on!
