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

Best Subs Ever

No matter who comes to check out my ride, the expression on their face is always the same when I pop my trunk. These are by far the most intimidating subs anyone has ever seen. With the Dual Kicker Ported Box and my Hifonics 1600watt amp, no one on my block is safe to enjoy their own music. Kicker For Life!

best subs ever

i got 2 15' l7's hooked up to a zx2500.1 in the back off my mini van and i have yet to hear a system that even comes close to it. I love kicker.

kicker is my #1 in car audio

kicker is my #1 in car audio

Really people

all these people on here that say they have 2 12s bustin out windows bc it beats so hard. u guys are full of it. i have 4 Amercain Bass HD D2 12s that are 3000 watts peak and 1500 watts RMS being pushed by 2 Amercain bass VFL 500.1s that put out 6500 watts. and iv only cracked 2 windows that were in my car. so there is no way som1 is going to bust out a garage window with 2 L7s no way. sorry kicker Amercain bass is better

The king of the street in Jamaica s10l7

EarYah 51 music is the loudest and cleanest car sound system in Jamaica and at the University of Technology; with the touch of authentic 3 tone colour comes to you with the Chevy Caprice Classic. I tried almost every speaker to get this round, clean, loud bass. I started with 3 15" round speakers but they said I need more bass so I should get 18" subs instead. I almost disposed of all my equipment as I got frustrated and decided to start over. I tried the Kicker S10L7 10" for the first time my dreams came through this bass was so clean and true I have to say 'awesome'. I went back to the store and purchased all the L7s they had. I have 5 S10L7s hooked up to 2 Hifonics 1600 amp never look back for another speaker than kicker. When this plays the nails are removed from the roofs, neighbors run out of their houses, this sound systems is too loud for my neighborhood; IT IS NUMBER 1 .

146.3DB

I have two 12 kicker l7s with a rockford t10001bd in a 04 malibu i hit 146.3 doors shut windows up

1 kicker l7 12"

Yeah so I got a 12 l7 in a custom box built to the specs of what kicker says (moved from 10 l7 to 12) in my standard dodge ram and my friend told me that he could hear me from two blocks away and people are complaining on myspace about it and I didn't even go by their house! I have a crunch 3000 watt amp and it bangs so hardddd!! Definately best system at my school. I put 3 10's and 2 12's look like a stock speakers. Best sytem ever! This was the first night I have had it and I know I will have plenty of more stories.
