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 two L7 10"

I bought my L7 10" from a guy who had to sell them to be able to afford to replace his windows in his car... after they blew them out. I am very concerned they will do the same to my car and I am freeking excited for it!

KICKER L7

I HAD 4 IN MY F150 KINGCAB... THEY SHATTERED MY CAB WINDOW...SO I JUST HAVE TWO INSTEAD WITH MY 2500 HIGH PHONICS AMP...I HAVE A LIGHTING CAP..ITS AMAZING THESE SPEAKERS CAN HANDLE THAT MUCH POWER!!!!

Kicker I Love You

Ok, I know this is the L7, but I purchased the 08DS10L5 4ohm from an authorized dealer, this is my second set of kicker subs. Pushing 1500 watts RMS @ 1 ohm, these subs are destroying my car and I love it. Looking to upgrade to new L7's but not sure if I want to go square or round as the Comp VX utillizes the same motor srtucture as the L7. All said and done, I've converted to Kicker from Pioneer (piece of junk), Kicker, as long as you guys keep making these subs, you got my business. Keep up the good work!

I love ur products

L7 15s DVC 2 ohm

First off my subs checked at 2.6 ohm per voice coil. They are not close in sound quality to their old comp 18s even after spending hours on line trying to find the right setup, going back to a round speaker 15 or 18 with a lot better SQ for sure. Low power sealed box guess their OK, but for me, it is not loud and clear as old 18s were we had in port through box in customized GMC pickup, not even close. Their round speakers were cool, not to sure if the sq idea is the new way to go, maybe for you but not for me, they also can bottom out easily. SPL, not really there either, just my opinion, close to size maybe of old 18s, sound quality, not even close for me it was a step back wards - want some L7 15s :-) just kidding, thanks for your time and input, good luck, look at others if I was you.

"Livin' Loud" This Is How I'm Livin'

L7

Recently a friend gave me his 05 10"L7. Let's just say impressed just doesn't describe how I feel about this sub. My mind has been blown. Wow just wow. I have the 2 ohm version with 640 rms fed to it. It is in the trunk of a civic, and making friends 2 round 12's look bad. I'm sold. Probably do one 15 inch in sub soon. I have and old school kx waiting around for some action.

15" kicker solo baric

One 15 in my monte carlo with 1000 watts. Loudest system in my town. Never had a single problem. Probably the nest sub ive ever owned. My trunk broke cause of it lol i cant open it

8 inch L7 times 8

I have 8 of these 8inch L7 subs running in a sealed box and if you want to get loud you want the high bass you want the low bass you want fast and accurate this is the setup to get it done.I have owned fosgate power subs i have owned JL Audio w1-w7 subs and many other brands but the way the kicker L7s hit i dont want any other brand in my ride . I guess you would just have to hear it to belive it but add it up 8 8inch subs in any trunk is 64inchs of heart throbbing eye vibrating and almost windshield shattering bass.Thanks Kicker!!!

kicker L7 12" sub

i bought a pair of the square L7's about 10-11 years ago. they started out in a custom box in one car and got put into another custom box in a new car. apparently the box i had made was not the right size cuz after about a year i blew one of them. a little while after that i sold my car and got another one with a new custom box made for my remaining sub made to the proper size this time. it has been over 8 years and i finally blew my sub, and believe me it has been threw plenty of abuse. i cant see myself ever buying another brand of sub, ever. great job kicker
