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's 40CWS84 8" 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 200 watts RMS to bring out the depth your music's been missing, and its 4-ohm impedance makes it compatible with just about every amplifier on the market. This versatile sub works well in sealed or ported enclosures, and it's even suitable for free-air applications.
Need an amp for this sub? Check out this Crutchfield-approved bass package.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 150 and 300 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.
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.
I got the Kicker 40CWS84 subwoofer for my 2004 Lexus ES330. It replaced my factory Mark Levinson version that blew out a month or two prior. My main concerns were that I didn't want to have to install a new amp to accommodate a new sub and I didn't want any distortion. This speaker has hit both requirements. I am a bit of an audiophile, but I don't think the sub is that important as long as it is consistent. I've heard some subs that overproduce at different notes and make you want to adjust the bass higher at others.
I installed two of these in the rear deck of a 1966 Chevy Impala. They are run as "free air" subs and powered with about 200W each. I am very impressed with the amount of output they are able to achieve inside the cabin of the car. No you can't hear the car thumping from 5 miles away, but there's plenty in the cabin. And because they are mounted in the rear deck with no cabinets, no truck space was given up. I highly recommend them for use in "free-air" type applications.
Pros: Deep Bass, Loud, Inexpensive, Space Saving
For the small amount of space I had and the low price this sub is very good. It hits the low notes with ease and although it's small, it can hit pretty hard. It goes perfectly in the back of my 92' pickup.
Pros: Small Cheap Powerful Reliable
Cons: Not as loud as a bigger sub
Nice replacement sub for my 2004 Toyota Avalon
I needed a replacement for the blown sub woofer in my 2002 Avalon. It took some minor trimming of the factory bracket and I had to cut the mounting screws off flush. With a little bit of struggle, it fit like a glove and sounds great!
Pros: Excellent quality at a reasonable price.
Not enough base
Did a LOT of research on subs - this 8" Kicker has great specs. Built a vented enclosure by using the Crutchfield tech help on the site. I'm getting MONSTER bass out of this speaker! Bigger is not always better - it's about matching the speaker to the application. Thanks, Crutchfield!
Pros: Big sound from small package, lots of enclosure flexibility with this size, way better specs than anything else in its class, good packaging.
Cons: None found yet!
Awesome little sub. Built a 0.55 cubic foot box and stuffed it with polyfill. The improvement over the sound that was just components running full-range is unbelievable. Cut the sub off at about 90 Hz and the components at 100 Hz (giving them a much needed break), and the sound was better than expected. truly happy!
Installed as OEM replacement in 2001 Toyota Avalon. Kicker has larger magnet & cone than original (JBL), making insertion into original location difficult. If I had to do it again (hopefully not!), I would install differently..
Pros: Replacement Kicker subwoofer has as good a bass as did OEM, maybe better depending on how you tune it.
Cons: Very difficult installation in this vehicle.
Great stock replacement, well built.
Pros: Classic design, like the powder coated finish.
Installed sub in 1978 Corvette 3 compartment Door. Intended to round out the sound from my 6x9's and 4x6's. I needed to add some low end while maintaining my storage for my t-tops. This sub worked great, I fabricated a door and installed the sub in a free air configuration. I am planning to build a small sealed enclosure to improve sound. Powered by a Sound Stream SDI1.700 steath amp at 250 watts @ 4 ohms I am impressed with the result. It will sound tighter in the sealed enclosure, that said the mid bass is nice and the sub will go lower than I had thought. It is an 8 so don't expect it to break your windsheild, and don't complain about the power handling either, spend 300 on a JL 8inch sub if you want more from an 8.
Pros: American made, Kicker quality & sound, small & discrete perfect for my application
I installed this in a free air application in the back deck of my Ford Focus sedan. I just needed some bass reinforcement for the 6x8 and 5-1/4 Kickers in the doors. It works great for the music I listen to( 70's 80's hard/classic rock). I didn't expect it to rattle the windows but it does have a pretty good low end extension. Powered by a 200 watt (bridged) Sound Ordnance amp. My Pioneer head unit is set to 125hz low pass and 100hz high pass (to the door speakers). This makes a nice flow between the sub and the doors. I am very impressed with the performance. It does more than I thought an 8" sub would.
Pros: small, free air capable, solid build
Cons: needs to include Kicker grille to cover it.
great sound but cant handle much power without distortion
Pros: easy to install out of the box
Cons: distortion... :( BUT not bad for the price and size
Sounds good easy to hook up.
Good speaker for a small or compact car. I purchased this peaker thinking it would fill up my 2012 300. Not enough bump. Still, it's a good speaker. I'm actually holding on to it. My wife has a 08 Jetta in which Ill try putting it there. Can't beat the price I got it at, that's why I'd rather hold it and use it for another vehicle. Might not find it at the price I got it at.
Pros: Beautifully structured
Cons: Not good for big cars
I got this to put in the back lid of my Camry. I cut out some MDF, made holes in it for the 6X9 and sub, and replace the factory back lid. It is running in a free air application and it can shake my car!!! I am shocked that it can do that for such a little thing. I plan on later buying another one and putting them both in a box. I cant wait to hear what they sound like in a box.
Pros: ease of use, good price, and does more than what it needs to.
My Polk 8DB40 blew pre-maturely and this was suggested as good replacement. Sound wise, it's pretty much the same but I learned my lesson and back out the gain on my amp.
Pros: Price, installation...
Cons: Dunno if it can go down deep...
The 8 inch Kicker sub works ok for its size,but not much base.Its mounted on the back deck of my 07 Hemi Charger.Since its not mounted in an enclose it did not produce much bass.
Pros: Medium bass for its size
Cons: Not much bass for the money.
Gives new life to the Jbl system in our Toyota Avalon
Pros: Clear sound
Cons: Needs a stronger sub amp, stock amp taxed
Good sub to reconment
Pros: Good price for a kicker
Cons: Need more sound quality
This sub kicks especially for the small sub it is, sounds crystal clear
Pros: Small, compact, great sound

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.

No, it won't. Just pretty much for the low end but not for bass rattling effect that you want to get. [ CARLOS Dec 04, 2014 ]
I bought it to replace cheap speaker in a nitro bottle sub. Sounds good on a 250 watt amp. Hope this helps but you can't go wrong with kicker. [ ERNIE Dec 04, 2014 ]
As long as the power your putting through to this speaker is clean, (aka- a decent amp) it will provide good bass. I don't think it will do much rattling since it is free air, and only an 8", My suggestion is find a good ported box that holds 2 10"s and run jl audio. won't go wrong with that set up, just have a decent amp. I got this speaker to replace a factory one that had gone south. It's ok, and I'm only running power through it with the deck's amp. [ Kevin Dec 03, 2014 ]
Not enough to rattle your but it sounds fine [ HENRI L Dec 03, 2014 ]
Unfortunately, I was not able to install this speaker. I was misinformed by the crutchfield saleman who told me it would mount in the back deck of my MB E300. It did not. [ OLIVER S Dec 03, 2014 ]
