Our take on the Kicker 40TCWRT122

by John Pollard
Kicker

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma

Kicker's 40TCWRT122 loaded enclosure puts a thumping 12" CompRT subwoofer behind the seat of a truck or in any vehicle that's low on space. The rugged sealed box was designed specifically for the subwoofer, so you can count on getting maximum performance, no matter what kind of tunes you enjoy.

Kicker 40TCWRT122 12" sub enclosure

This thin enclosure can fit behind seats or in areas where space is tight.

Big bass from a CompRT sub

The 12" CompRT sub features a rigid injection-molded polypropylene cone that won't flex and cause distortion while you're cranking the bass. Its rubber surround will last through years of heavy use, combining with a special-design back and top plate to give you more excursion (which equals more bass) than other skinny subs.

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and its sealed design keeps the bass punchy and accurate, without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Speaker Terminals: The spring post terminals are mounted on the left side of the enclosure and will accept pin connectors, single or dual (standard 3/4" width) banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Woofers: The Kicker 40TCWRT122 enclosure uses one 12" CompRT subwoofer, wired to present a 2Ω load.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker CompRT speakers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum low-bass response. The suspension system is very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately two weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Can't handle any power

Written By Kane, Milford de on Saturday, March 01, 2014
 
I have a 500 watt amp and it has torn this sub apart twice with a break in period of of more then two weeks. It can't handle near the 800 rms it says it can i suggest a 400 watt amp max if you do get this but your better off getting something else.
Pros:
Sounds clear while it works
Cons:
So easy to blow. Can't handle any power it says it can

Kicker 40TCWRT122

Written By Colton, B, Ripon, CA on Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this sub since it was the cheapest Slim fit that had more than 300W RMS ratings. This is my third sub on this amp, and i will never have to change it again. I am using an Alpine 500W RMS @2ohm amp and the bass overpowered to highs with stock speakers. I can't wipe the smile off my face.
Pros:
Compact, powerful
Cons:
none

Pounding Bass

Written By Tony, Pacoima, Ca on Saturday, July 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I already had an amp from a previous system in my GMC Yukon and needed something with better space efficiency. This speaker proved to be more than what I anticipated. I just placed it securely in my rear cargo area and hooked it up and I was immediately impressed by it's sound. The mirrors rattle and everything shakes. But it is not overwhelming. Very powerful bass and clean. Highly recommend.
Pros:
Everything. box is great.
Cons:
None at this time.
