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

Kicker l7 15s zx2500.1

I have 2 walled off kicker l7 15s and a zx2500.1 in my civic coupe and they slam rediculously hard with breath taking bass. Im in the mid 150 db range great job kicker.

A joke of a brand

I bought 2 12" L7's and they froze up in less than a month. I never turned my radio above half way. I'm not sure exactly how loud these speakers could have been and will never give them the chance. I am very disappointed in Kicker for creating such a joke of a speaker especially for the price!

LiViN LoUd

Right now i just have two 12" kicker comps, which are great but wanted more. So, i decided on the L7's, so i bought two 12" square subs. Of course i needed to power them so i went all out with a 1500 watt RMS kicker amp. So excited to get it all hooked up!!!! I'll have 4 subs and 2 amps, hah better start buying extra batteries and alternators now Haha :D

15'' l7 solo

i just bought 2 15'' l7 solos and a 1500w kicker mono amp and did a blowthru in my single cab s10. i built a 12 cubic ft box tuned at 29 hz and can do the hair trick. but need to add altenators and batteries because it shuts amp off when i pull to much, other than that, they are awsome. i have the best clarity for having 15s in my town, including better than people that work at audio stores

Hi

Love living loud

15 in L7

I have two 15 inch L7's from 2002. and. well. they've been owned by all kinds of different people. seen many different enclosures. they've pushed a windsheild out of a Dodge Stealth on a Lanzar cheat amp that was longer than my torso and pushed 50w x 2. lmao. We smoked the voice coils on them using a couple alpine v12's. and man. they still freakin pound. they're in my sunfire today. in a 10 cubic foot box, ported, tuned to 33hz on 1800 w rms. and some pretty good sound quality subs for how big and loud they are. thanks Kicker!

10 L7 in TS ported box

I bought this sub as a replacement for my 10 inch kicker comp which i loved but it just didnt put out as much bass in my regular cab truck as i would like, i wasn't sure how much or even if the 10 inch L7 would be louder than my 10 inch comp, i installed the 10 inch L7 today with the kicker 4 gauge wiring kit and the kicker 11ZX1000.1 amp and this thing pounds!!!!!!! i am still shocked about how loud this thing will get for just a 10 inch sub. I turned my radio half way up and i had alot of flex on the roof and everything on my dashdoard was moving. I've always bought kicker prouducts and i can say the L7 defently lives kickers "livin loud" up.

kicker L7

I have 2 15" kicker in my 92 Ford350 I had a blow through box or a ported box made for them. Damn they never hit so hard. Here I wanted to put 4 of them just because I know my amp can push them. I think if I did I would be more deaf then what I am right now. Lol. Next week I am going to install my kicker SS components that I had for about 4 years or so. Thanks kicker for making a wonderful products keep up the good work

kicker sub

i have 4 of your comp 15s what is a great exchange with more bass without spending a shit load of money i also got 2 dx1000s and i spent 800 on a custom box im looking at the l7s but dont know what would be better

Using Kicker since 1994

A Kicker Solobaric S12D in a closed .88cu box, and a Rockford Punch 200iX.
That's what i have been using since 1994 (!).
The car's, equipment - even women - changed, but this bass setup stayed all the way.
And yes - this now almost legendary old school setup it's still rocking nicely and is used in an everyday ride.

And now, as i have a 2nd car, i listened of lot of options in various stores and cars.
For the available space and my liking, my choice fell on:
an L7 S102 factory box (driven by a Hifonics ZXi 1501)

I took my time to do proper cabling, installation and setup.
OH MAN - i love it! Such a "tiny" badass! *BAM!* - in lack of a better word.
It reminds me of those moments in 1994 when i heard the original Kicker Solobaric for the first time.

In no way i'm "religious" about brands - but i really seems that certain companies find their way to stay with you for a lifetime.
Kicker, for sure, is one of the few that truly deserve that.

Greetings from Europe, rock on Kicker - on to the next 17 years :-D
