Review 1 of 78

Price Paid:  $30.00 from Swap meet (guy didn'

Year / Model Reviewed:
2000 2000 Kicker S12L7

Strengths:
Good loud ass bass from the 2000 model kicker solo baric L7. And hit good in small sealed boxes.

Weaknesses:
Umm none at all!

Summary:
Well I bought this from a swap meet when my caught the sign of the solo baric logo on something....and well I asked the person who was selling how much do they want for it and he said $25 and I thought this a steal of a lifetime!! And I took it and ran off quick and bought a sealed box and hooked it up and wow this woofer hits so hard it's unbelievable!! I hooked it up to my Rockford fosgate punch 40 and none the less I was knocking!! I really recommend the old school kicker solo barics to anyone I know they're not on the market as often but if you find one buy it! Worth every penny!!

1990 Geo Prizm LSI

Strengths:
-Looks great -Sounds Incredible -MONSTER BASS -Very Durable

Weaknesses:
Too much Bass! (Not that that's a problem) Besides that - NOTHING! Go out and buy it!

Summary:
I just purchased a kicker s12l7 - with a l5 ported enclosure and an audiobahn a8000t and these things KICK! I have my - just one - at HALF volume and its INTENSE!!! Unless you want crazy bass you only need one... These are the best subs I have ever seen / used! If you're looking here to know about a sub to purchase - GET THIS ONE - with a ported enclosure - and hook it up to an Audiobahn a8000t - YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED! GUARANTEED!

Review 4 of 78

Price Paid:  $300.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 Kicker S12L7

Strengths:
Strong, Violently Loud, EXTREMELY Reliable Sound amazing in a small sealed box, twice as good an a large ported box

Weaknesses:
Less than average sound quality when thay are pointed right at you (which is almost never the case)

Summary:
You will see that I have reviewed these before after initial purchase. I sold the two I reviewed to by the 2 ohm version to match my new Alpine 900W amps. I drive these subs hard every day and they are still the hardest hitting 12's I've ever heard. The person I sold the 4ohm's to was replacing his 4 Rockford Power Series 12"s, and he couldn't be happier. The day I matched the Alpine MRV-1505 900w amps, the L7s, and a new box, I was tuning my system for 10 seconds before my rear view mirror fell off. I've been pounding the L7's for well over a year now and they have no signs of giving up. Also let me state the fact that I have been a professional commercial A/V designer and installer for many years, so I know my audio. I still find that they lack in SQ but more than make it up in the SPL department. Check out my POS van with the L7's www.cardomain.com/ride/824209

I've tested and installed too many subwoofers to list. In the car audio world, nothing comes close to the brutality of the L7 for the price.

Review 5 of 78

Price Paid:  $300.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
2003 S12L7

Strengths:
HUGE Bass - almost violent Killer looks Massive RMS Could be the loudest small box sub ever Even better on a larger ported box Don't need massive amounts of power to get moving They don't distort, so it's hard to tell if you are pushing them too hard

Weaknesses:
If you build or modify a custom fit box and decide they are not for you, the box is worthless Not the best sound quality

Summary:
Alright, I've had 2 of these for about a week now in a 1 cu.ft. box each with about 40% polyfill. OK. Everyone keeps stating that these need mad power but that's not necesarily true. I had them hooked to a JL 1000/1 and I think the amp was too much for the subs. It was the most impressive bass I've ever heard from such a small box ever! But, don't fear! Due to a baby on the way I had to sell the 1000/1 and all I have sitting arount to push them is an old Sony XM-972X wich is rated at 300 watts at 2 ohms bridged. I have them a 4 ohms and They still deliver enought to rattle my truck! The best part is that they still have 1 more week of break-in time so it can only better. The raw power of these subs deducts a few points from the SQ which is a big deal to me but I can live with it. If you have the money, I'd definitely give these monsters a try!
