How do i rebuild the voicecoil on my kicker l7 15in speaker


I dont think that kicker has a recone kit available for L7, after they started building the cone as a one piece structure without a dustcap, making it impossible to align the coil in the gap.
Myself, i have considered the possibility of using the carbon fibre maxxonics recone kits, it may need some tweeking to make it work. but will be quite strong and you could try different coil impedences, aluminum formers etc.
if you dont feel adventurous, than you might be able to send in your sub to kicker for service. i think they just send off a new sub to you, at a discount......

Hello, i have a kicker l7 15 and the voice coil has seperated from the cone. any advice?


Well, you have 3 options really,

  1. Send it in to your local sound shop for repairs.
  2. Replace the subwoofer.
  3. Attempt repairs with super strong glue.

I have a Kicker Solo-Baric, L7, 12 inch subwoofer making a scratching noise. The cone is fine but the inside is not. Can i get this repaired? Kicker said no. This is a $250-300 sub. I hate to just throw it...


The bad news is that your voice coils could be fried up, basically mechanical failure. Might as well buy a new sub because replacing a voice coil means you got to rip the whole sub apart, very complicating.

Only one voice coil is working on my L7 10" sub? All connections look good. 2 2ohm subs wired to 2ohms with a Kicker zx1000.1 mono amp. why?


If the tinsil wires all look good then chances are you broke a lead in the coil, the only way I know of to fix this is to order new voice coils and a new spider and replace them..

There are places on the web to order parts, you just need to take good measurments of the parts and relay them to the stores.

Hi there I have a problem with my kickers. Subwoofer l7 15" is blow,I was wondering if there is a repair kit avaible for it or not?


The only Kicker woofer that has a replacement cone/assembly is the SoloX woofers. All of those have what Kicker calls it's SPARE which is a field replacement assembly. They're designed for SPL competitions.

How do i rebuild a set of solobaric l7 subs 15s


you have to remove the rubber surround holding the front of the subwoofer to the metal frame.the voice coil is a coil of copper wire.you should be able to get it through kicker.its not the easiest thing to do i recomm seeing if kicker can rebuild it for you or try a local speaker repair shop theres not alot of them but you can find them.first get the rebuild kit if your going to do it.it should show you everything you need to do. if you need more help let me know [email protected]

Kicker solo baric s8L7 making strange noises


the voice coils are blown and they would replace the the whole cone and coil assembly, it is almost as much as buying a new sub, email me I am a car audio wholesale dealer and I beat any price ( with full factory authorized warranty !! ).

Voice coils


Hello. I do speaker reconing and amp rebuilds for a living and the L7's often suffer from tinsel leed wire breakage which can cause "poping" and "screaching" noises in the sub in various cone positions. You need to remove the sub and push straight down on the cone repeatly and determine if you can feel or hear crunching noises to make sure the voice coil and/or spider are not damaged. A faulty leed wire can usually be identified by a dark spot or obvious breakage. All of the L5 and L7 models can be successfully repaired as long as they are the older models that have a center cap in the cone. The newer capless models will have to have an upper brace cap glued to all of the cone's fingers and will have a rather ugly appearance. Leed wire overhauls usually run around $30.00 for the older models. Voice coil and spider overhauls run around $90.00.
