Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Enclosure: The enclosure is
constructed from non-resonant 3/4" Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and protected
by a layer of rugged catalyzed polyurethane.
Dual Voice Coils: The woofer
has two 2-ohm voice coils that are wired in series, presenting a 4-ohm mono
Square Design: By making the
Solo-Baric square, Kicker is giving you the most possible cone area (or Sd) for
a given size baffle, 16% to 20% more area than a conventional subwoofer. More
cone area means the Solo-Baric L7 moves more air, resulting in louder, deeper
Cone Materials: An aluminum
deposit impregnated cone is used resulting in greater rigidity for less cone
flex and less distortion. In addition, the cone is also very resistant to
environmental extremes. A rear cone brace provides added strength and reduces
cone flex under stress.
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.
Inverted Structural Dome: The
Inverted Structural Dome replaces a conventional dustcap and locks into the cone
for unmatched structural integrity and greatly reduced cone flexing/resonance.
Patented Enhanced BAM (Basket And
Motor) Assembly: The cast aluminum basket features a low profile, open
design to provide a solid anti-resonant foundation for the motor assembly.
Spider: The durable
resin-impregnated poly-cotton spider provides precise coil alignment and
critical cone motion control.
Voice Coil: The multi-layer
voice coil and Kapton former create a superior magnetic field and effectively
Chromed UniPlate Construction:
The UniPlate construction combines the backplate and extended pole piece into a
single unit to maximize magnetic efficiency and minimize alignment problems
often caused by two-piece construction. The bottom of the UniPlate is chromed to
provide enhanced heat transfer for cool operation and maximum power handling.
Bumped Back Plate: The deep
bumped back plate lets the voice coil reach maximum excursion without
Perimeter Venting: The
perimeter venting cooling system continuously pumps hot air away from the voice
coil, replacing it with cool outside air.
Gaskets: The one piece front
beauty ring and separate one-piece rear gasket insure an airtight seal and
provide enhanced cosmetics.
Tinsel Leads: The speaker
features sleeved high-power tinsel lead wires to resist breakage and
power-robbing resistance losses.
The spring posts will accept bare wire and pin connectors.
Sensitivity: In the features and specs
section, the sensitivity is automatically rounded up to 86 dB. The enclosure
actually has a sensitivity rating of 85.6 dB.
- Overall: W=17.563",
H=14.75", D1=10.209", D2=7.959"
- Depth Note: The depth
measurements include the protrusion of the grille on the front, and the
speaker terminals on the back. The enclosure by itself has the following
depth measurements: D1=9.25", D2=6.25".
