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

kickerl7

Ive always had kicker but i wanted to try the rockford T2 . After Purchasing the High Price Speakers I Was very disappointed the Bass was ok , But not like the kicker . The bass on the kicker Travel through your body and surround you . While the bass from the T2 only travel around you. I Tried them both on a rockford 3000.1 Bd Amp. Now after trying the two different speakers i Now know kicker is the way to go. The kickers are 750 watts rms and the rockford T2 are 1200 watts rms , But the kickers sound much better. You can also feel the bass of the kickers too. I will always use kickers from now on.

L7 10s l5 12s comp 15s

I love my l7 10s no comparison I had two comp 15s and these 10s blow them out of the water. I have played them for hours at a time and they are still tight and still play as loud as new. I will buy kicker from here own out.

kicker l7 15

I got a 15 inch L7 running at 1ohm, hooked up to a new hifonics 1200.1, pushing a little over the 2000 watt peak power handeling of the sub, and this thing slams. i just replaced three twelve inch audiobahns with this sub, and the kicker crushes them. The sub doesnt start to distort even after three hours straight of high volume listening. I also have 2 twelve inch L5s im going to hook up to see how they compare. They are going in my girlfriends car with an amp yet to be determined, but i would be supprised if they can keep up with the monster, wich is what i call my L7. it rattles the mirrors of the vehicles AROUND me in traffic wich i love

l7 15 4ohm

i bought a l7 15 about 3 weeks ago. i had it hooked up to a hifonics 2400.1D it sounded amazing and then the voice coils blew. there great subs but not as sturdy as theyre made out to be.

L7

i have 2 L7 12" hooked up to a 2400 watt and i love the thump i am cirrus about 3000 i bet i can wake the neighbors at the end of the block

l7

l7 it is a good product on the market, so i am very intereste on asquired one unit

i got one l7

i got one l7 an a 2000 watt orine slab an i crack the sub an blow it up after 6 weeks an there warttey is bull cuz i got to pay 242 an shipping just to get a new one wen i pad 625 for the box an sub are thay crazy i should get it fixed for free

get some l7s

I just got a 15 in l7 its the best sub ive ever had. if anyone is looking for a good quality sub get a l7. supper loud sounds amazing. my fist set of subs were 2 12 in cvrs. then had some 2 comp 15s. then another set of 12 in cvrs and now i have 1 15 in l7 in my ranger and im loving it.

2 L7's been rocking since 2006!

I got two 12" L7's in '06 to go with my 4 SS 6 1/2's and 2 8" MB08's...

The subs were powered by a Kicker zx1500.1. I also had a 20 Farad capacitor, 4 dry cell batteries, and 0 guage wiring to every amp and battery, with grounds to the chassis. I wired it all myself.

Still got it all today, in 2011!

My system pushed to the max. I bass out sometimes even now for 15 to 20 minutes at a time going full bore and these babies still sing. Amp works perfectly too. So do my two SX amps and my SXRC ;)

Kicker all the way, baby. Sad to see them pull the L3 crap...I wouldn'r recommend anything less than an L5...

Solo Baric L7"s

i have 2 of the 15" Solo Baric L7"s and their still kicking since i bought them back in 07 i havent had any problems yet with them but my cars on the other hand have not been to lucky lol. i have them in an 09 cobalt and they tore that car apart from the rear view mirror breakin off and hanging on by the onstar wire to pushing so much power causeing air bag sensors to go off, and cracking the thin metal frame holdin my spare tire under them. now their in a 2011 nissan altima and still ticking. great product. i have over $2000 worth of kicker subs amps 6x9's by far the most thing i could have ever done. i wouldnt trade the fantasic massages for anything!!!!!
