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

theese subs are f**king BEAST

i have 2 08 model L7 15s with 2 o8 zx2500.1 watts amps and i have the loudest ish around its rediculous i pull up to stores and the windows shake when i roll down residential streets people are waiting 3 blocks down the road asking them selves whats the noise im in love with my system its the loudest one in my town and im proud to say its kicker. after purchasing and installing theese beasts my new motto is kicker till the day i die and thensome... honestly the best product ive ever purchased i murder w7s and every other sub any1 ever tried to out bump me with every day. bottom line kicker is the BEST and LOUDEST subs ever.

Love my L7 (looking to get another!!!)

12'' L7 running on a ZX1000.1, and i love the combo. Also have a ZX350.4 running two pairs of Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5's (loudest components i've heard to date, but price is a little steep at roughly $450 per pair). Strongly recommend kicker products to anyone in the market, especially the L7. Although you wont be blowing any windows with them, it takes excess of 190 db's to do that...and your ear drums would be actually be gone by then. BUT, they still sound amazing and put out a clean sound, Kicker love.

love em

this was my first sub ever. 15 inchs of pure pounding bass. i got mine hooked up to a 2000 watt volfenhag amp in the back of an s10. hit 146.2 db last saturday and took first in the 0-250 class highly recomend.i need another!

S15L7

Have an 08S15L7-4 Wired down to 2ohm on a Hifonics BXI2608 in a 3.5cu.ft. box tuned @ 37hz. Filter @ 40hz. Level @ 1/4 hits 110db +6db on remote level. Level @ 3/4 hits 151db +6db on remote level. This is in fully open Jeep Commander off of a Clarion 2DIN. Not running test tones or Full power- all various songs. Amazing SPL, fairly terrible SQ, but that's how i like it :)

2kicker L7 12s

yeah i have 2 L7 12s in my town car with a clarion 1500 watt rms amp with a 30d eclipse touch screen deck and they hit good for 12s fixin to upgrade to a wall with 6 razors edge 15s and 6 clarion 1500 watt amps banging a 155db oh and i blew my box apart with the 2 12s my boss has 6 15s and has not cracked or blown a window out and he has like 15 first place medels so i dont see how half the ppl on here are saying thay have

i have one L-7 12 in in my 03 silverado ext. cab funny thing is i only have a 150 watt mtx amp! i removed a 12 in mtx 5000 series to use the L-7 and the difference is beyond belief!!!!! cant wait to install my 800 watt mofset. i am 46 and listen to very hard rock i.e. godsmack, a7x,bullet for my valentine,metallica,papa roach,megadeath,disturbed,korn, and i don't play it low! with this small amp bridged and the stock 6 disc chevy stereo it will literally blow your hair!my 21 yr. old son has a 10 inch jL audio and 300 wats and the same truck and mine [now] sounds way better! i am forever sold on kicker products! tim

I have one of these in an spl box in my camaro and hooked it up to my cheap 500watt amp (my 1600w hifi is not in yet :( ) and just on 500watts i can tell that this woofer is gonna be a beast. Its my first experience with kicker subs (i am a memphis guy) and i would already highly suggest this product or kicker as a whole for that matter.
