About the Kicker Solo-Baric L5 06S12L54
From top to bottom, Kicker builds the Solo-Baric L5 subs for powerhouse bass. The 06S12L54 12" subwoofer features Kicker's trademark square woofer cone, crafted from composites and treated with aluminum it's rigid, responsive, and ready for hard-hitting, accurate playback at extreme sound pressure levels. The tough, tear-resistant Santoprene surround includes reinforcement at the edge of the cone for added durability.
A sturdy steel basket holds these elements in place, while air vents around the sub's perimeter pump the hot air away from the interior. Kicker's UniPlate pole piece and backplate allow extended cone travel, so the sub won't distort when the lows start bumping. The two 4-ohm voice coils offer the wiring flexibility you'll need to use your sub in either high output or multiple woofer configurations.

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4 ohm voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel the woofer presents a 2 ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series the woofer presents an 8 ohm load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4 ohm load.
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 L5 moves more air, resulting in louder, deeper bass.
Cone Materials: The square cone is made of SoloKon, an ultra high performance composite, which remains rigid, minimizes cone flex and lowers harmonic distortion. SoloKon consists of a unique one-piece, aluminum vapor-deposit material that moves as a lightweight piston, exhibiting power and control. A rear cone brace integrates into the SoloKon with a continuous contact perimeter weld, which offers unmatched 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 L5 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.
UniPlate Construction: The Solo-Baric L5 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 ability
- 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 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 stitched to the spider to relieve stress on the connections.
Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the outside edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet from chipping or breaking during installation.
Speaker Terminals: The terminals are spring loaded and nickel-plated for solid connections with heavy gauge speaker wire, up to 11 gauge.
Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Solo-Baric L5 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 2 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.
Power Handling: The power handling specifications differ according to the type and size of the enclosure. The power handling specifications assume that both voice coils are in use. Note: Both voice coils in a dual voice coil speaker should always be connected.
Recommended Sealed Box Volume:
- Compact (minimum enclosure volume): 0.88 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 600 watts RMS
- SQ (maximum enclosure volume): 2.0 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 500 watts RMS
Recommended Vented Box Volume:
- Compact: 1.75 cu/ft; 2.5" x 13.25" port opening; 22.5" port length; the woofer can handle up to 600 watts RMS
- SPL/Deep Bass: 3.25 cu/ft; 3" x 13.25" port opening; 14.5" port length; the woofer can handle up to 600 watts RMS
Note: The power handling specifications listed with the vented enclosure recommendations apply only when a 25Hz, 24dB/octave subsonic filter (sold separately) is used with this woofer. If a subsonic filter is not used, power handling may decrease, excessive port noise can occur, and the life of the woofer may be shortened.
Cutout: The woofer will not mount in a standard enclosure with a round cutout. Instead, the woofer must be mounted in an enclosure with a 11" x 11" square opening.
