The 12" square Solo-Baric S12L5 is a mid size subwoofer available in Kicker's Solo-Baric L5 product line of car subwoofers.  The L5 line itself fits in the middle of the subwoofers made available by Kicker.  The first thing to note about the L5 series is their square shape giving them a maximum area, which is also used by Kickers Solo X and Solo Baric L7.  The L5 series inherites the technology used in the L7 series, but with improved design and a new look.  Like the more advanced Solo X line, the L5 woofers use SoloKon technology, which is a rigid vacuum-formed design with vented 360-degree back bracing to push mass quantities of air.  The Santoprene surround attaches the cone to the stamped-steel basket and rear foam gasket allows a secure connection to any baffle.  The high-temperature dual voice coils which cover a solid heat-dispersing pole pice, and poly-cotton semi-progressive spider with perimter venting and long-lasting Spirallead tinsel leads allow the motor structure to handle high power loads.  The S12L5 has a frequency response of 20-100 Hz, RMS of 600 watts and 1200 watt peak power.  Available in 2 or 4 ohm versions, they can be used in either sealed or vented-box applications.  Square grill covers are sold seperately.
