Get ready for intense bass

Kicker's 11VS12L72 loaded enclosure adds the immense rumble of a Kicker Solo-Baric L7 sub to your music. This matched enclosure makes it easy to add a square woofer to your system without having to build a box. You just throw it in your ride, connect it to your amp, and bring on the bass.

Square woofer means more woofer

The single Solo-Baric L7 12" subwoofer features an injection-molded polypropylene SoloKon™ one-piece square cone that moves lots more air than a 12" round sub. This extra-large cone, supported by a tough Santoprene™ rubber surround, dishes out monster bass. An ultra-rigid cast aluminum basket allows for high performance without distortion caused by the basket flexing.

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy 3/4" medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the generous side port provides more boom for your buck. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier.

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

Product Research

Features

Wire Terminal: The subwoofer's dual 4Ω voice coils are internally wired in parallel to present a 2Ω load at the single pair of spring post wire terminals.

Square Design: By making the Solo-Baric square, Kicker is giving you the most possible cone area (Sd) for a given size baffle, 16% to 20% more area than a conventional round subwoofer. More cone area means the Solo-Baric L7 moves more air, resulting in louder, deeper bass.

Cone Material: The square SoloKon design is a unique one-piece construction, using polypropylene material that moves as a lightweight piston, for improved control. The cone remains rigid, minimizing cone flex and distortion. A rear cone brace integrates into the cone with a continuous contact perimeter weld, which improves strength and resistance to deformation under pressure.

Surround: The tough, flexible Santoprene rubber surround has a long-throw, positive-roll design, which controls extreme cone excursion and is highly tear-resistant. The corners of the surround are ribbed to ensure linear cone motion. The surround is stitched to the reinforced cone edge, making separation between them virtually impossible, even in the harshest conditions.

Spider: The woofer is equipped with a wide poly-cotton spider which easily handles high cone excursions due to its increased diameter and unique shape.

Enhanced BAM (Basket And Motor) Assembly: The Solo-Baric L7 utilizes a high strength stamped steel basket which features a low-profile open design and provides a solid foundation for the precision-aligned motor assembly. Perimeter venting in the BAM relieves pressure from under the spider, supports linear excursion, and helps dissipate heat from the voice coil and motor structure.

Voice Coils: The high-temperature Polyimide Film Voice Coil former improves sonic and conducive properties, and prevents thermal-electrical meltdown. The voice coils are rated to 220° Celsius.

UniPlate Construction: The Solo-Baric L7 features a one-piece UniPlate construction with a vented hyper-extended pole piece and backplate. This unique design provides the following benefits:

  • Optimizes heat transfer efficiency for cooler operation and maximum power handling capability
  • Eliminates erratic magnetic flux from the voice coil gap
  • Releases pressure under the suspension for uniform cone movement and responsive low bass
  • Prevents the voice coil from bottoming out and the corresponding damage

Tinsel Lead Wires: The sleeved, high-power tinsel lead wires eliminate broken leads and power loss, due to the common use of insufficient gauge lead wires. The lead wires are terminated with multiple polymer-based strain relieving mechanical fasteners.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Solo-Baric L7 woofers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum low-bass response. The high-performance suspension system makes the speakers very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately two weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Subsonic Filter: Kicker recommends using a 24dB/octave subsonic filter at 25 Hz.
