About the Kicker 46L7T82
Bigger bass for your smaller space
Bigger bass for your smaller space
Excellent. Superb. Great sounding. Unbelievable. These are a few of the words our customers have used to describe the performance of Kicker's Solo-Baric® subwoofers. With more cone area than a conventional sub, these subs give you bass you can really feel. Now Kicker has combined this innovative concept with the shallow-mount design of their CompRT Series subs to create the L7T Series subs — the ultimate low-profile solution for big bass.
Made to be played
The 46L7T82 8" sub features the signature SoloKon™ square polypropylene cone, creating a rigid surface that won't flex and cause distortion at high sound levels. The Santoprene rubber surround stands up to the car environment and keeps the cone on track for maximum clarity and minimal distortion, while the sturdy steel frame resists vibration and provides a solid foundation. This sub handles up to 350 watts RMS, so be sure your amp can give it all the power it needs. The dual 2-ohm voice coils let you wire your speaker for either 1- or 4-ohm total impedance, giving you more wiring options when setting up your system.
Kit that will fit
You'll have more installation options than ever for this super sub. Whether you prefer a sealed or a ported enclosure, the 46L7T82 is designed to excel so you can pick the enclosure that'll give you the response you prefer. And with only 2-3/4" of mounting depth required, this pizza-sized deep-dish of boom settles neatly into your vehicle's tight corners. If you thought it was impossible to fit this kind of massive bass into your vehicle, think again.
Important Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for extremely low impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. You can damage or destroy your amp by exceeding recommended minimum impedance.

Square Design: By making the cone square, Kicker is giving you the most possible cone area (Sd) for a given size baffle, 16% to 20% more area than a conventional round subwoofer. More cone area means the cone moves more air, resulting in louder, deeper bass.
Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 2Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load; when wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω load.
Cone Material: The square SoloKon design is a unique one-piece construction, using injection molded polypropylene that moves as a lightweight piston, for improved control. A rear cone brace integrates into the cone with a continuous contact perimeter weld, which improves strength and resistance to deformation under pressure.
Surround: The tough, flexible Santoprene rubber surround has a long-throw, positive-roll design, which controls extreme cone excursion and is tear-resistant. The corners of the surround are ribbed to ensure linear cone motion. The surround is stitched to the reinforced cone edge to improve durability.
Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs (but not dual), and bare wire up to 8 gauge.
Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker subwoofers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum bass response. The high-performance suspension system makes the speakers very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately two weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.
Sealed Enclosure: A sealed enclosure design gives the smoothest response with increased energy at the lowest frequencies (between 25 and 30 Hz).
- Minimum Volume: 0.2 ft³
- Maximum Volume: 0.75 ft³
Vented Enclosure: A vented enclosure design increases efficiency relative to sealed enclosures.
- Minimum Volume: 0.8 ft³ with a 1½" x 8" x 20¾" slot port
- Maximum Volume: 1.2 ft³ with a 2" x 8" x 19⅛" slot port
Cutout: The woofer will not mount in a standard enclosure with a round cutout. Instead, the woofer must be mounted in an enclosure with a 7.41" x 7.41" square opening.
