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 10CVX154 15" sub sports dual 4-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 750 and 1500 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

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.

Ease of Use
Let me preface this by saying that I have this sub in a 3.85 cubic foot, ported box in a sedan. It takes up just about all of my trunk. But that is the only con. This sub has a great frequency range. It will play 20s with rattling power, and will play very nicely up to about 160. Above that, this or any 15 should not be playing. This is an upgrade from a 300watt 12 and this sub destroys that 12. If you can fit and afford this sub, it is fantastic. My friend and a similar 15 from a competing company and the kicker laughs at it.
Pros: Great response Good power handeling Can wore to 2ohm Well built Looks amazing
Cons: Requires large box Some distortion at higher volume on higher frequencies
