Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
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.
1,500 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.
2 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".
88.6 dB
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.
Dark Gray
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

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.
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.
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.
6-7/8"
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.
11-3/16 x 11-3/16"

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.

Great Subwoofer

June 14, 2009

This sub is amazing..purely amazing..the reason why i give it an amazing durability score is because.i accidently had this sub hooked up to only one voice coil and it still blew all my other systems away the reason why i give it a bad easy of use is because its 750 watts RMS and thats a lot of power for two subwoofers but with sonic electronix amazing prices on amps you can buy these amps..i just found out about this store and im still amazed!!

best........

March 30, 2009

Best sub for price, power handling, and space. 1.79 cu feet min for enclosures is good for anyone looking to put a little bang in a vehicle. I got 3 of these wired at 2 ohm with each wired to its own kicker zx 1000.1....Easy install great bass, great look, and not over priced. Compare this to any other companies similar sub nothing will compare RF P3 or JL w6 are other good 12's but when it comes down to the value, look, and durability its all about the L7 hands down....

This Is A Amazing Subwoofer!!!

April 9, 2008

Kicker L7's are the best of the best. I have one in my Chevy Trailblazer. Yes, I only have one and it makes you blink when the bass hits. I have the JL 1000/1 Mono Amp hooked up to it. That is the loudest speaker ever for the price! It don't get much better than this!

I've owned nothing but JL Audio in the past. My last Sub was a 10W7... Now, they're Solo-barics. The amount of quality you get for the price is phenomenal. I have this hooked up to a zx1000.1 and it BaNgS. Kicker made me a believer in their products and I will stick with them.

Unbelieveable BASS!!

March 3, 2007

These speakers are so strong, kicker themselves suggest earplugs! Being one of the best subwoofers out on the market, kicker has still outdone themselves with the L7. The L7 subwoofer will make you stand out from any other system you might hear down the road because not many people have them. Without a doubt, it's definately worth it in the long run because if you blow the speaker, all you need is the SPAIR kit. It saves you the trouble of buying new speakers!

wow

May 3, 2006

i just picked a pair of these up from a kid I go to school with. So one night I wanted to hear what they sounded like so I hooked them up to my PA 1600 in my friend's jimmy ....wow I've never seen a pair of L7's b4 so I didn't quite know what to expect but amazing doesn't even begin to explain how it was. I only had about 350watts to each of them and it was flexing his roof about a quarter of an inch overall GREAT BUY if you can get a pair or even one it doesn't matter just get one!

Clear and Crisp..And oh yeah Crazy LOUD

March 27, 2006

I have one of these hooked up to a zx 750.1 and I wouldnt trade my setup for any other. It's not the fact that it gets louder and hits harder than any other sub I know. It actually sounds good doing it. I'm sure you've all heard subs that you could just hear the sub bottoming out. I have the gain half way up on my amp and it literally pushes air out of my chest. I say get one of these and a 750.1 and your set.
