RE Audio SXX 12 vs. Kicker 12” Solo-Baric L7 Car Subwoofers

Comparing popular subwoofers is tough to do in a lot of situations. A lot of car subwoofers have their own benefits and technologies that can make them “better” but it’s very tough to say at the end of the day which sub is better. One of the most popular questions that the product specialists at Sonic Electronix are asked is “Which subwoofer is better?” This can be a tough question to answer. At the end of the day, the better subwoofer is actually the one that suits the needs for the application you want to put it into.

Today we’re going to look at two of the industry’s most popular subwoofers, and try to showcase their benefits and their technologies that make them unique. The subwoofers we’ll be looking at are the 12” Kicker Solo-Baric L7 11S12L72 and the RE Audio 12” SXX12D2. Each of these subwoofers have their own benefits which could make them the better subwoofer for different applications, and they’re both favorites here at Sonic Electronix.

Some of the key features found on the Kicker Solo-Baric L7 11S12L72 are obvious at first sight. This subwoofer is square in comparison to traditional round subwoofers. This helps by adding additional cone area on the subwoofer. Cone area directly translates into more overall bass output from a 12” subwoofer. Since the subwoofer will push more air it will create more sound. Other key technologies of the Kicker L7 are its UniPlate pole-piece which helps cool the woofers dual 2” high temperature voice coils. This helps the Kicker L7 handle high amounts of power, with RMS power ratings of 750 watts!

The RE Audio SXX12D2 is a typical round subwoofer, however its features are anything but typical. This subwoofer will require a bit of a larger amplifier to reach its full capabilities. Its 3” 8-layer voice coil can handle 1000 watts of RMS power, so it can handle some extreme power. It also has triple stacked magnets to help drive the woofer, which can lead to impressive response. Each subwoofer has benefits, and for different applications can be considered the best.
