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

I havent used this product yet im just trying to buy it so i can..i'll let u know what i think

L7 8's

These little subs kick butt! I am running 2 L7 8's and they are hitting harder, louder and deeper than a pair of 12" JL Audio w6's. I have them in a single ported 2 cubic foot box and running at a cool 900w rms. If you want to be heard and keep some trunk space, try these L7 8's out. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

i have a 95 blazer with 1

i have a 95 blazer with 1 15in l7 and a 1500x1 kicker amp and i blew my ear drum

Hey Nate3329

Email me at jbrown@kicker.com with your concerns about the L7. I am sure we can get this resolved for you. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Thanks,

Jerimy

we have a Honda civic in we

dude ive heard a lot of systems and nothin hurts my head like a kicker, i have one 15 l7 on 1000w rms in my ford ranger ext cab its bouncin stuff out of my cupholders and blowing my shirt ann i can feel my nose ratteling i have to give up to the guys at kicker. i`ve heard nuthin like em`

12" L7

Kicker is the only subwoofer I will ever buy

l7

worth every cent

MY L7

My L7 was sent back to Kicker once and the support was great but now I have to do it again! Pro install each time but now it doesnt work! Problem is I moved from Cali to Iowa! I have my L7 ran on a Kicker ZX7501 at 4ohm. So now I have 2 JL W-1's ran on the ZX7501 and they pound just as good as my L7 and cost much less! I hate the fact since I moved I have to send in the L7 and pay for the shipping and then wait for them to send it back. Plus its been almost a year since I bought it, so time is running out, and I am running out of faith in Kicker maybe I will switch to Memphis... I seen some at the Kicker dealer here in my new town and they look and sound great! What should I do Stay with Kicker or move on??

I LOVE MY 15" L7s

I have two 15" L7s in a custom sealed box. The specs were provided by Kicker tech support. I added a nice twist to the shape of the box and man let me tell you; these speakers are MEAN!!! I have them running in my Mercedes Benz E430. I have a Kicker KX1200.1 running the Solobarics @ 1ohm and I have two KX150.2s running my separates (front and back), man my car sounds AWESOME!!! I dynomated the trunk, doors, roof and rear deck and my car actually sounds better than most home and club systems!!! I was thinking about upgrading my sub amp to that Monster that I saw advertised, but what I have is eating guys with much bigger amps, so why bother? I know me, the "bug" will get the best of me and I'll go ahead and jump out the window and get that beast of an amp just because. I just wanted to let you guys know I've been repping your products for over 20 years and i've never been disappointed!!! To me, it's money well spent and i've ALWAYS been satisfied!!! THANX!!!
