Description

Authorized dealer

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 08/09 series is a redesigned and improved SoloKon one-piece, injection-molded cone with full-coverage back bracing that pushes more air and creates louder bass than ever before. 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.

Awesome sub

The following review is for 11S8L72, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

Very loud for a single 8" subwoofer. I highly recommend this to anyone.

I love these subs!

The following review is for 11S8L72, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

Just as the title says, I love these subs. They sound good, produce the low notes accurately, and hit hard when you want them to. You read reviews where people say "my friend thought I had 10's" It's true. I have used the solobarics since they first came out and everyone always thinks I have larger subs than I do. I currently have two of these 8's in my wife's minivan stuffed in the spare seat storage in the back. They are being run with a Kicker CX600.1 and I am the only one in the family who can stand the music loud enough to make the subs work at all. The website says it needs 0.5 cubic feet of space but I called Stillwater Designs and they said it was a misprint. They only require .33 cubic feet as they always did for their 8" solobaric. My box is .39 each and hits all the way down to 30 Hz before the subsonic filter cuts off the signal. I have another L7 8" in my car run by a Kicker IX500.1 but only needed one as I left the rest of that stero stock and it already overpowers the music.

Great Sounding Sub!

The following review is for 11S8L72, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I've owned this sub for about 6 months and it really hits hard for a 8" subwoofer. I have it in my regular cab truck and I'm getting ready to put one in my supercrew.

Great subs!

The following review is for 11S8L72, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I have a 2005 chevy silverado crew cab. I have very little room to put subs under my seat but I found a box with 8" squares cutout so I had to choose between 8" 2 solo barics or 2 10" circular subs and I'm really happy with my decision on buying these L7's! They bump just as hard as my friends setup with 2 12" subs. I'm glad I decided to buy these subs, the low mounting depth is a huge plus! Buy these if you are lacking space, it doesn't get better.

Great value and great product!

The following review is for 11S8L72, which is a part of the bundle you are viewing.

I was hesitant on buying a set of 8" subwoofers since before this I ran a pair of 15" RE Audio. But since these subs were the perfect size to go under my seat and I could have a back seat again I really am happy with them. I have had no issues with power handling what so ever. I have a US Amps 2000X running them and the subs sound great for just being so small. I would recommend these subs to anyone with space issues. These are defiantly ones that pack a punch.

Slammin subs

I would recommend. I've had the sub in my Charger. I bought from local audio shop and it hit so hard for one sub. It hit the low and highs so good and i had it in a really tinny box. If you want some awesome subs buy now you wont be dissapointed. PROS: DURABILITY, PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN.
CONS: NONE
