This dual voice coil subwoofer features an impedance of 4 ohms, 1,800 watts of maximum power and 900 watts of RMS power.
*The Solo-Baric L7S 15″ subwoofer works best with a sealed or ported enclosure and 1,000 watts recommended power. See below for more details.
This sub features a thick woofer cone and strong motor structure to ensure you get all the bass you’ve ever needed. Combined with a DX amp, you’re sure to get the most out of your bass. The Comp 15″ subwoofer works best with a sealed or ported enclosure and 250 watts recommended power. See below for more details.
800 watts is more than enough power to load this speaker. Take the Kicker 800.2 Amp and bridge it. These amps are underrated and put out at least 900 watts RMS. You don’t need a 1200 watt amp. Save your money.
Best single sub I’ve ever owned !
This is my second kicker sub I’ve ever owned and overall it’s one of the best subs I’ve owned ever had. In 25 years of almost 20 different subwoofers, it’s louder than a pair of Rockford Fosgate 12″ and it’s in a pretty small package so I can still use about 70% of my truck.
The Massive Audio N2 Nano series amplifier is the perfect addition if you want to amplify an S8L74 L7 woofer or even two of these woofers to a final impedance of 1 ohm.
*The Solo-Baric L7S 12″ subwoofer works best with a sealed or ported enclosure and 750 watts recommended power. See below for more details.
Power handling: 100-500 watts RMS (250 watts per coil)
When it comes to musical bass, kickers don’t mess around with this CompC Subwoofer Dual Voice Coil. It’s 12 inches in diameter and has a pounding bass. This subwoofer radiates 600 watts peak power, 300 watts RMS power and a 4 ohm voice coil.
The KICKER® Solo-Baric® L7S™ is based on the groundbreaking original square subwoofer. Massive power handling and more cone area means you’ll move more air and get more bass.
If you have 35-45W RMS, the Kicker is a better option than the Rockford Fosgate M1. If your amp is rated at 75-100 watts RMS, the Rockford Fosgate M1 is a better option.
Ported enclosures are typically used to get more power out of the same output from an amplifier than a sealed enclosure as they are more efficient. They also have more overall performance than a sealed case, which means they can play louder overall.
The Kicker speakers are cheaper, but the JL speakers sound better. 8″ speakers have more surface area and typically handle more power than 6.5″ speakers. The larger cone area and higher power handling mean the 8″ speakers play louder and give you better mid-bass response than a 6.5″ speaker.
