Legendary bass, awesome price

If you're looking to add some boom to your car's sound system, Kicker's CompS 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 technology at work

Kicker's 40CWS102 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.

2-ohm impedance for more power

This sub handles 300 watts RMS to bring out the depth your music's been missing, and its 2-ohm impedance brings out max power from your mono amp. 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 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.

Great sub for the price point. Matched it up with my alpine m350 I had laying around. This sub will hit hard if you crank it. Looks great too.

Pros: Well built, good sound

Cons: None yet

Excellent sound quality, hooked up to kenwood amp powered by factory system. Components up front and 3 ways in the back...matched perfectly with the single sub.

Pros: Sounds great and easy to install, much better then the JL Audio I previously had that went out after 1yr.

Cons: None that I've noticed

excellent sound. Excellent price. Perfect for the set up I purchased

Pros: Excellent price, very good quality

Cons: Only issue I had was that it didn't fit in the stock bracket for the sub I was replacing the way it should have. A few holes drilled and some foam tape on the backside of the bracket and all set

Great product

Couldn't believe how much sound this small sub put out. Very impressed.

Cons: None.

The crutchfield team recommended this sub to match my amp and type of music and they nailed it. The sub sounds awesome with a 300.1 kicker amp and it's not even turned up half way. Great product and fast shipping from crutchfield.

Pros: Sound, power handling

Cons: None

BOOM. I searched and watched videos until the old me woke up and bass was found. I matched this 10 to a 300.1 kicker amp and sealed a box approximately 1.0qf of air space. I honestly think I am only running half of this amp right now and ac/dc sounds worthy to show all of the firends. This acura rsx is rocking. My hair is moving and I have the sub setting at -3.

Subwoofer Features
Enclosure Compatibility

Subwoofer Features

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 Compatibility

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).

  • Minimum enclosure volume: 1.0 ft³
  • Maximum enclosure volume: 2.4 ft³

Ported Enclosures: A ported (vented) enclosure design is typically more efficient than a sealed enclosure.

  • Minimum enclosure volume: 1.25 ft³ with a 1.5" x 10.5" slot port opening that is 14.5" deep
  • Maximum enclosure volume: 1.75 ft³ with a 1.5" x 10.5" slot port opening that is 13.25" deep

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.
