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

Gotta love it!

I have one L7 15" in my trunk and that thing SLAMS!! I constantly have to make sure my rear view mirror isn't falling off! I would recommend this sub to anyone. I'm putting another in within the next year. Kicker doesn't make crappy products.

comp

kickers are the best speakers i've ever used

kicker

i have a 12 in the trunk of my 1991 camaro and love it looking to upgrade for better base

l7 15 4 ohm

I've had many speaker types but the l7 I love. As of now I have two in a ext. Cab truck. If I every find the right price I want 6-8 of the l7 15s in my cab.all I can say is money well spent I have had one of my two for over 2-3 years.

KICKER L7 15 BOOM BOOOOM BOOMMMM!

i just purchased a Kicker L715 2 weeks ago and what can i say but BOOM! this iz the best sub ive ever had handz down. its amazing how much bass it puts out. I've scared soo many of my friendz with it hahahah. the only bad thing iz i fried out the voice coils wayy to quick with my amp because i had it truned up a lil too much and i was playing some Decaf. lol but other than that i hope to send it back and get a new one because im deff sticking with Kickers no doubt. This sub does thingz i couldn't belive it moves my back window in my car, broke the box, and the trunk hahahah even my front window moves a bit lol. ohhh and it cracked my house window too no lie. hahahah "Livin Loud" no doubt. ;)

kicker l7

Best subs out there

These are definetly the best subs on the market. I have 1 15 in kicker L7 in my monte carlo and that thing pounds. Only downside is having to tighten everything on my car down cause its gonna fall apart soon ha ha!

kicker L7 10"

i have owned 3 of the 2ohm L7 in the past 4 years. for the price i would not recommend this product. this first L7 i had to replace the voice coil, then it was stolen. the second L7 the wire that connects from the terminal to the inner cone broke, had it repaired then it too was stolen. The current L7 over the period of 6 month that same wire broke on 3 of the 4 terminals. each time i connected a slightly longer thicker wire to repair broken piece piece. the replacements never broke. the final wire snapped in it last week, i repaired it but speaker still doesnt work. sooo i give up with this product which ive been a loyal fan of since 1991

about to get 15" l7

about to get 15" l7
