KICKER Bass Engineering gets square makeover

KICKER’s® distinctive subwoofers are indentified by rich, deep bass, indestructibility and quality sound. That legendary engineering integrates with patented KICKER Solo-Baric® square-subwoofer technology to craft the Solo-Baric L3 Subwoofer series. The Solo-Baric L3 Subwoofer provides all that is expected from a KICKER subwoofer, plus the extra bass and decibels supplied by Solo-Baric’s innovative square cone.

The Solo-Baric L3 was designed with many of the superior features used by all KICKER subwoofers, but in a square design, KICKER founder and President Steve Irby said.

“For a little more money, you can get more volume, more cone area and more air displacement,” Irby said.

Utilizing KICKER’s most advanced cone design, the Solo-Baric L3’s SoloKon™ technology ensures strength for reliable performance and accurate response. Its injection-molded, ultra-rigid design with vented, 360-degree back-bracing pushes mass quantities of air for louder bass. The patented corner-ribbed, double-stitched Santoprene® surround assists in holding a heavy-duty motor structure in place, providing durability at a high excursion without compromising sound quality.

The subwoofer’s long-lasting Spiralead™ tinsel leads and high-temp dual voice coils wrapped around a heat-dispersing, solid pole piece bond to handle the extreme power and temperatures transferred through the motor structure and cone. A progressive-roll, vented polycotton spider guarantees supreme linearity at the highest volumes.
