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

impressed

i have one 12" l7 in a max recommended 3.25 ported enclosure, all made to spec running off a jl audio 1000/1. i am getting tired of my rearview falling off. i did not break it in, rocks hard nonetheless. everyone i talk to about it say they hear me (almost 2 blocks) before they see me. i get ppl turning heads way up ahead of me. let me tell you there is nothing better than running on 20's with bass!!! the bass i can best describe it as harsh, it hurts when you turn it up. ive had infinity and jl and nothing compares. if you want an sq sub this is not it, if you want it loud, seriously look no further. ill be coming back, thanks kicker.

WOW!!!

i got 3 15" L7s in the back of my sliverado hooked up to an epicenter. WOW! the bass on these things is massive then with the boost of the epicenter it sounds freakin loud!!!!!!!

Kicker Baric L7

I have two 12" kicker Baric L7's hooked up to a P-1000 Rocfordfosgate amp and i have never heard anything louder. My car shakes completly. I cant even hear myself think. Well i am chewing tabaccoo i can feel the spit in my mouth vibrate. Its crazy. The seats in my car fold down, and it makes it twice as loud.

2 12" L7'S

I HAVE 2 12" L7'S IN MY 1997 TOYOTA TACOMA BEATING LIKE A MONSTER

L7s

All I can say is that these subs hit hard, money well spent. I was going to first get soloX subs, but those would have been to strong, L7s are good for every day driving, But if I upgrade I would get SoloX and no other name brand but Kicker.

15 inch Kicker L7's

i got a pair of 15 inch kicker L7's hooked up to a 1600 watt hifonics brutis amp it aint much but it hits and definately gets the job done im still in highschool i probably have the loudest system in my school and neighborhood. And by far prolly the best system ive ever owned i used to have 3 cvr's its definately a big upgrade from those. ill never buy anything other than kicker.

2 12 L7's

I have 2 12inch L7's in a ported box in my Tahoe with a 1800w Rockfordfosgate amp, a kicker crossover and The Matrix inline driver sitting on top of them and it's a MONSTER! Going to get 2 more and have a custom box built and running each speaker with its own amp. Oh yeah I have kicker components running throughout the rest of my truck. SCREAMING!!!!!!

single 15" l7

i have a single 15 inch L7 in a 4.0 cubic foot ported box tuned to 32hertz running off of a jbl gto1201.1 2 lets talk about windshield flex i didnt expect it to flex like that at all. i have been threw all kinds subs jl audio w7, rockford fosgate hx2, mtx 9500 and plenty others ond really haven't had that much flex from my windshield it really suprised the $*!t out of me that it was flexing that much from just one. and as i stated i've had the top of the line stuff not any entry level stuff and didnt get that much flex from the windshield from the other brands off of just one sub!!! and i can put this sub up there in the rankings with the re audio sx and the audioque sdc 2.5 the kicker L7 is definitely one of the hard hitters.... im about to throw it on a AQ2200D and see if it will hold up or smoke!! i know i know it's only 1000 watts rms and 2000 peak but only paid 150 for the sub and box let the fun begin:^)

i got 4 12's in my 2000 dodge

i got 4 12's in my 2000 dodge stratus on two 1000 watt amps and that stuff slap harder then a mug

L7 12

I have a regular cab ford pickup with 1 12" L7 in a ported 2.73 cu.ft. enclosure across the back of the cab tuned to 43hz. The sub is behind the driver seat and the port exits out the passenger side with about 1ft between it and the cab corner. I am using a Memphis 1000w amp bridged to 1ohm and a pioneer head unit. I have been very impressed with the setup. I originally was running 3 12" Kicker XPL's in a sealed enclusure, the new L7 ported is louder and clearer! Not the best SQ at peak volume, but by far the most intense.
