Truly huge bass

Kicker builds their Solo-Baric® subwoofers for one purpose: to deliver truly huge, supremely accurate bass. The 44L7S82 Solo-Baric L7S™ 8" component subwoofer handles up to 450 watts RMS, enough power to fill any vehicle. Its innovative square cone moves much more air than a conventional 8" round cone, and this sub's made to take anything you can dish out.

Built-in toughness

The woofer's forged aluminum frame and Santoprene™ rubber surround handle high-level playback, while keeping the cone on track. The injection-molded SoloKon™ polypropylene cone features special back bracing for strength and responsiveness. The sub's two 2-ohm voice coils give you extra flexibility in incorporating this sub into your system. And the UniPlate™ back plate and pole piece are made as a single, solid unit to allow heat to escape the motor. Translation? Kicker designed this sub to take some serious punishment.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 330 and 675 watts RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Clean install and powerful accurate bass

This is an excellent speaker! Very accurate and clean bass. I installed this in my 2013 Chevy Sonic RS in the rear cargo area. I built a custom box to manufacturer's specifications and I wasn't disappointed. I decided to build a ported enclosure tuned to 60hz to maximize the volume of a small sub. It worked extremely well. The quality of the speaker is excellent as well as it's appearance. I used the audio control lc2i and a fosgate t750 for my install. The bass is quite powerful. I'm very pleased with the result.

I can't believe that this is an "8". If you are like me, and want some extra clean bass to your system without taking up a bunch of space, look no further. I was able to make a box to the specs and conceal it into a panel. I am only running 300 watts to it off of a 5ch amp, but it is plenty for me. I could always upgrade the amp or use a mono and port the box, if l wanted to. I am happy that I went with this and not a shallow version vs. Bigger as in a 10 or 12.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 2Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load; when wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω 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 cone moves more air, resulting in louder, deeper bass.

Cone Material: The square SoloKon design is a unique one-piece construction, using injection molded polypropylene that moves as a lightweight piston, for improved control. 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 tear-resistant. The corners of the surround are ribbed to ensure linear cone motion. The surround is stitched to the reinforced cone edge to improve durability.

Speaker Terminals: The terminals are spring loaded and nickel plated for solid connections with speaker wire up to 10 gauge.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Solo-Baric L7S woofers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum 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.
