Our take on the Kicker 10CVX122

by Jon Paulette
Kicker

What's a component sub and why would I want one?

A component sub is simply a speaker that's designed to reproduce bass once it's installed in a compatible enclosure. Think about the impact of a movie soundtrack in a big theater or even in your own home HDTV setup. A component sub can add the same kind of power to the music in your car. And a car sub is not all about the boom that you hear on a street corner (although that's cool too) - you can pair a component sub with your choice of enclosure to get bass just the way you like it, from tight and punchy to fat and loose. And once you experience music in your car with a well-tuned subwoofer, you'll never go back.

Solo-Baric performance in a round sub

Kicker's CompVX subwoofers bring the class-leading design elements found in Kicker's Solo-Baric® L7 square subs to those who prefer the look of a circular sub in their vehicles. The 10CVX122 12" sub sports dual 2-ohm voice coils for maximum versatility and sounds great in sealed or ported applications.

One-piece SoloKon™ cone

Unique 360-degree back bracing and a ribbed Santoprene® surround keep the sub's one-piece SoloKon™ cone from flexing, so your bass stays accurate when the beats get loud. And Kicker understands the heat that can be generated during heavy, so they use high-temp dual voice coils and a high-mass, solid pole piece that'll stand up to the abuse.

The CompVX also features a non-resonant cast-aluminum basket that adds no coloration to your bass. Kicker caps off this unique sub with smart design features like perimeter venting that cools the sub's motor structure and spring-loaded terminals that can accept up to 10-gauge wire.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 575 and 1125 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
