Both coils should always be hooked up . The dual 2 Ohm woofer will give you a 1 Ohm or a 4 Ohm load depending on if the coils are wired in parallel or in series . The dual 4 Ohm woofer will give a 2 Ohm or 8 Ohm load depending on how they are wired . The terminals with solid red and black markings are for one voice coil .

Since the cardboard cut - out is the same size as the basket of the L5 , when you make the cut along the line drawn through the template , make sure to cut right on the line to get the correct opening size . All the cubic feet numbers given in the following pages include the displacement of the woofer . For the ported boxes the displacement of the port must be added to the final design . It will be impractical to use round ports for these designs . The rectangular port information given will yield the best results . Always use 3 / 4 " or thicker MDF and make sure all the joints are secure and well sealed . The peak pressure in a ported box can exceed that of a sealed enclosure . X All of these designs need some internal bracing . Be sure to add 2 " x 2 " ( 5.08cm x 5.08cm ) to 3 " x 3 " ( 7.62cm x 7.62cm ) triangle braces between each of the larger unsupported panels . Kicker recommends using a good grade of wood X glue and silicone sealer for an airtight box . X Note : If you prefer an ultra - smooth bass response , you should loosely fill your Solo - Baric Enclosure with polyfil . Ported designs will require covering the entrance to the X = 3 " x 3 â€� for S15L5 , S12L5 port ( inside the box ) with hardware cloth , chicken wire , or X = 7.62cm x 7.62cm expanded metal to prevent the polyfil from being blown X = 2 " x 2 â€� for S10L5 , S8L5 out through the port . Use of polyfil will slightly decrease X = 5.08cm x 5.08cm efficiency , but will deepen and extend low bass response . Do not install a ported box with the port against a solid surface . The port opening must remain unobstructed . Use the smallest dimension of the rectangular port as the minimum amount of space required between the port and any surface to insure unrestricted airflow .

A note on power haandling caapaability Solo - Baric subwoofers will handle massive amounts of power in any of the recommend - ed enclosures , minimum or maximum . The smaller enclosures are best for use in limited space applications . The larger ( maximum ) recommended enclosures will yield slightly more bass at the lowest frequencies . The power ratings given are assuming that both voice coils are used . You should never hook up a dual voice coil woofer using only one coil . Recommended Enclosures Solo - Baric L5 - Series Sealed Enclosure Applications The Kicker Solo - Baric L5 is designed to give more output than an equivalent round speaker and is amazing when used in the recommended sealed boxes . These sealed enclo - sure recommendations will give the smoothest response with the most energy at really low frequencies , around 20 to 30 Hz . The recommended Compact sealed boxes have the highest power handling capability of all our recommended enclosure designs . They deliver massive amounts of high impact bass and can be driven with punishing levels of amplifier power . One of the benefits of the Solo - Baric L5 - series high performance suspension system is that they can operate in larger sealed enclosures for ultra sound quality ( SQ ) applications without significantly sacrificing their power handling . Solo - Baric L5 enclosures can be " sized up " all the way to a . 707 Qtc enclosure , which has a very flat response , with greatly extend - ed sub bass . Solo - Baric L5 series woofers also perform well in any sealed enclosure between the Compact and SQ sizes . These systems will exhibit some benefits of both ( high impact and low extension ) generally sounding more like the box to which they are most closely sized . These enclosure volume recommendations are for the airspace inside the enclosure and include the displacement of the woofer . Do not make the airspace any greater than rec - ommended .

Allow about two weeks break - in time for the Solo - Barics to reach optimum low bass performance . Solo - Baric L5 - Series Ported / Vented Enclosure Applications Ported Solo - Barics ? Absolutely . . . and with a vengeance ! These enclosures incorporate massive slot loaded ports with ultra low air velocity for ground pounding street bass that will make your hair stand on end ( if you have any left ) ! These are the type of boxes that are the " enclosure of choice " for outrageous street bass and high performance SPL contests . The following chart shows three recommended ported enclosures for each Solo - Baric driver . Compact has increased bass efficiency over a sealed enclosure , yet can still fit in tighter applications . It is the smallest design that will work well for each woofer . Although it is the smallest ported enclosure , the output from 30 to 80 Hz will be considerably higher than that of a sealed box . The two other ported designs have proportionately more output in this region . Street Bass is a medium sized enclosure that will kick out bass that can be heard for blocks away . And it does go LOW ! SPL / Deep Bass is a large enclosure with high efficiency that will deliver the output needed to win SPL contests AND produce bass output all the way down to the basement . Weâ€™re talking truly awesome ! If space is not at a premium and you want to get the most from your Solo - Baric L5 , try one of these designs . You wonâ€™t be disappointed .
