Kicker Solo-Baric L7 Subwoofers

The Kicker Solo-Baric L7 woofers continue to be the best sub in their class. The patented square-woofer technology allows for 18% more cone, which translates to more bang for your buck compared to competing round subwoofers. All new for the 2011 series is a redesigned and improved SoloKon cone. The new beautiful look was inspired by the big brother SoloX series, and it's making everyone at Sonic go crazy as it's tougher looking and better-performing.

In addition to the SoloKon improvements, the new L7 woofers also provide a much easier installation. The solid pole piece allows more heat sink capabilities and perimeter venting is built into the spider landing unlike previous years. This also allows for a shallower installation as you no longer have to account for venting through the back of the magnet. To make things even easier on the installer, Kicker moved the binding post to the corners of the woofer allowing for an easier connection when running the subs in parallel or series.

Key Features:

  • 12" Solo-Baric L7 Series Subwoofer
  • Power Handling:
    • Peak: 1500 watts
    • RMS: 750 watts

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Solo-Baric L7 (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
1500 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
750 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Dual
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 100 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
86.9 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
14.1 mm
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Square
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Black
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Titanium Deposit Impregnated Cone w/ Rolled Outer Edge
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Santoprene Rubber
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
No

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.25 cubic feet
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2.0 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.75 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
6-11/16"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
11-1/16" x 11-1/16"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 – 10.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

I just purchased two of these monsters and a powerbass 3000 (1500rms) all wired up in a dual ported box 2.5 sq for each and all I have to say is wow I have owned many systems in the short 5 years I've been driving and this by far is the best I slam on my buddy's three type-r's so for all you alpine lovers bring it. These subs slam the lows like you owe em money haha but come back and nail all the bass notes as well all around great woofer. Have them in an 05 Taurus and even my windshield gets wavy kicker out did them selfs only upgrade I have in mind is two 15l7 wit a zx2500.1 then it's game over.

Don't Waste Your Money

March 9, 2013

Don't waste your money this sub. It's extremely enclosure picky, very very sloppy, made in china with terrible soft parts. And a 2.5" voice coil for $350!?!? Lol. Take the $350 you'd put into this sub and instead get an hdc3, ia death row, ssa xcon, couple sundown sa, something along those lines that will actually perform and dominate the L7. This sub belongs in the $150-$200 range

Every thing i wanted

February 28, 2012

I've had my 12" L7 since December and this thing is nasty. I have it wired to 2ohms running at 1000w with an Alpine MRP-M1000 and lemme tell you i've impressed all my friends. I love my Kicker, its in my 2002 chevy trailblazer and people who sit in the back say they cant breathe when this things pounding. Now it doesnt set off car alarms cuz that just doesnt happen but my friend has heard me comming home when he was in his basement. When i first had the L7 i had it in a sealed box but now its in a ported and everything in my car shakes. If you want a loud sub that looks and sounds amazing then this is for you. I got it for 250 cuz Sonic is boss, so get this and you wont be dissapointed.

Kicker 12" L7 subs

March 24, 2012

These subs are very durable, they are rated at 750 wrms, I have 2 of them wired down to 1 Ohm and I am also pushing them with over 1988 watts. They sound very clean and pound the hell out of my accord coupe. These are a great buy for someone not wanting to spend alot.

I have the generation of L7 right before this one and it's great! I have mine bridged to a Hifonics ZXi 1010. Have had the set up for a year and a half so far and it still slaps hard, it not only puts up with but seems to welcome any and all abuse from that damned rap music. Get one of these, get a big ported box, get a good amp and beat that trunk up!

kicker L7 12

February 25, 2012

These subs are horrible. They are slopy. Yes they're loud definitely but its not musical it's just vibration. Its SQ is horrible SPL is up there but musically they suck, and the way they're made is not great quality. I had this switched out to JLW6 and they sound a lot better than these. Louder and SQ is great but i wanted more so now im going for 2 13w6 89% more air, L7 are loud but are made for cars like a mustang for some reason they hit good in cars like that but 4 door sadans horrible its up to you if you want to buy them go for JL hands down in quality and sound. I broke 3 kicker L7 in less then 2 weeks trying to get them to pound like the reviews say. It didn't happen.

3 Steps to superb sub-bass - yes, the L7 rocks

March 1, 2015

Purchase a high quality amplifier. If you are buying a new amp for around $100 and it says 1000 watts or more, you are not buying a quality amp. Period. Real current supply and wattage costs money. Kicker, Rockford, JL Audio, Alpine, all cost money but supply the overhead amplifier power you need to drive an quality sub like an L7. Boss, Hifonics and Lanzar are cheap in cost and quality. You get what you pay for.
Secondly, you need 4ga. wiring. You will not be able to supply the current efficiently if you don't have the right wiring.
Third, you need a real sub. Cheap subs sound bad, can't handle high current, can reproduce the lowest frequencies (under 30hz) bottoming out and eventually blowing.
Pairing the L7 with a high quality amp and and the correct wiring and box will give you the bump you want, at the volume you want. Invest in quality and do it right the first time.

Great all around subwoofer!!

June 15, 2012

I will start by saying I had 2 08S10L74 before I upgraded to to these. The 12's are worth the upgrade if you have the cash. I have them in a 3 cu. ft. ported box, 1.5 separated chambers. These subs will take anything you throw at them. I listen to rock, rap, country it all sounds good. These subs give punchy bass but also hit the lows and carry them very well. I have them hooked to a 1500w amp and they seem like they want more. The only draw back is the price. I did seize one up within the first week, but a call to Sonic I had a replacement no problem. I've had these in my car for over 6 months and no problems since.

August 29, 2011

My first sub was a type R and i liked it a lot but then i got this thing in a 2.8 cubic foot box with two 4 inch ports and it is not built to specs but still makes my windsheild flex and my roof is flexing over an inch with just one sub. this thing is crazy loud for one speaker and my freinds have 2 subs with brands like rockford fosgate, jl, and pioneer but the 2 jls and the 2 rockford fosgates wont get as loud as my single kicker but the jls almost hit the low notes as good but not quite. i also put the owners manual over one of the ports and it completely ripped it to pieces and spat out the remains which sucks but was so funny.
