If you're looking to add some boom to your car's sound system, Kicker's CompD line will get your car shaking without draining your wallet. These subs are the latest in the legendary Kicker Comp line that started in 1986, with a proven pedigree when it comes to delivering powerful bass.
The heavy steel basket cuts down on unwanted vibrations.
Kicker's 40CWD102 10" subwoofer features a flex-resistant polypropylene cone for hard-hitting lows without distortion, while the ribbed foam surround promotes long excursion and helps to keep the cone on target. The sub's steel basket provides a reliable foundation for big bass, and its extensive venting ensures long-lasting performance that won't break down when the bass gets heavy.
This sub handles up to 300 watts RMS to bring out the depth your music's been missing, and its dual 2-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system. This versatile sub works well in sealed or ported enclosures, and it's even suitable for free-air applications.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 225 and 450 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Replaced 2 subs with this dual voice coil one. Hits harder and helps save more space in the Jeep Wrangler. Paired it with a sound ordinance mono block.
Pros: Hits hard and saves space.
Cons: Not free!
I have 3 in my car and they hit amazingly, for the price they are impressive
Pros: Cheap, good bass, hits hard
Great deep bass for the price. Easy install. Quick delivery. Very good product. Enjoying now as I bump through the streets!
Pros: Deep bass. Good price. Hits hard!
Cons: So far so good!
This 10" sub hits really hard! Paired with Sound Ordinance amp, people think I have 2-10"s in a box. Well worth the money, just get a good amp.
Replaced my Lexus GS430 subwoofer for the 2nd time...this speaker was a good fit..however, if you are using only the factory built in amp, use the series wiring over the parallel wiring.
Pros: Good sound for the price...I don't believe you will be disappointed.
Cons: Yet to be determined.
This sub is perfect for what I needed. I have it in a sealed custom enclosure for my Jeep cherokee and I couldn't ask for anything more. Plenty of bass for all genres of music. If you are trying to be obnoxious and shake other peoples cars and your neighbors houses then get two but if you just want great bass to improve your cars overall sound quality then one of these is all you need.
You can Not beat this subwoofers sound and quality. The dual vioce give's you so much flexibility. I'm going to be buying more soon ..
Wasn't trying to blow the trunk off of my car but just wanted to add a little rumble since the car didnt come with speakers in the trunk. These 10's fit perfect with the factory 6X9's that came in the rear doors. Always been a fan of kicker and will soon be upgrading the factory speakers in the doors with kickers. Very happy with my purchase.
great sub pounds hard and knocks pictures off the wall

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.
Ribbed Surround: The optimized ribbed polyurethane helps eliminate flex and distortion.
Spiralead Tinsel Leads: The durable Spiralead tinsel leads are woven into the woofer's spider, for added strength and reliability.
Steel Basket with Vented Pole Piece: The steel basket's vented pole piece and Kicker's Quad Venting slots contribute to the woofers' efficient cooling and durability.
Speaker Terminals: Each speaker terminal has two 0.25" push-on terminals (crimp-on quick slides included).
Enclosure Versatility: The Kicker Comp subwoofer is versatile, performing well in vented or sealed enclosures, and in free-air applications.
Sealed Enclosures: A sealed enclosure design offers the smoothest response, with increased energy at the lowest frequencies (between 20 to 30 Hz).
Ported Enclosures: A ported (vented) enclosure design is typically more efficient than a sealed enclosure.
Infinite Baffle Mounting: The Kicker Comp subwoofers are also designed to be used as free-air drivers. The infinite baffle mounting method effectively utilizes the trunk of a sedan as the enclosure.

Perfect fit for stock 02 cadillac deville. The knowledge of the staff. They actually knew the specs and products that they are selling. [ Timothy Jan 30, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Kenny Jun 23, 2016 ] Staff

Ohms represent the amount of resistance that the speaker has. If an amp gives 1000 watts at 2ohms, it provides 500 watts at 4ohms, and 250 watts at 8 ohms. This is most important when you are daisy chaining speakers together. It is important to match the impedance of the speakers and insure that your amp can handle the added resistance of the extra speaker. If you have 2 8ohm speakers, you will now have 16ohms of resistance which could potentially burn up your amplifier. Low impedance subs are good for daisy chaining, but work well as stand alone as well. [ Todd Jan 15, 2015 ]
That is the measure of resistance of the speaker. [ MATT Jan 14, 2015 ]
