Our take on the Kicker 40VCWR122

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 40VCWS122 loaded enclosure puts a thumping 12" CompR sub behind your music. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for the sub, so you can count on getting maximum performance, no matter what kind of tunes you enjoy.

The specially designed port gives you more bass without sounding sloppy.

Hard-hitting CompR sub

The 12” CompR subwoofer comes equipped with a tough, polypropylene cone that stays rigid during intense play sessions so you hear accurate bass. A custom-designed back and top plate give the woofer plenty of room to travel, while the durable rubber surround helps to control cone movement during a heavy workout. This sub uses extensive venting in its heavy steel basket to shrug off heat, so you can count on reliable performance.   

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the special-design side port delivers more bass without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier. This Kicker will handle up to 800 watts RMS, so make sure you pick an amp that'll make that CompR sub happy.

AWESOME!!

Written By Shawn, Midland ,TX on Monday, January 27, 2014
 
I actually ran across this set up at a pawn shop. I looked up the specs on it and thought it should really pound. I bought it at more than a 100 less than you can buy on the internet. I took the sub out of the box and saw that it was set for 8 ohms. Moved it to 2 ohms and boy was I blown away by the bass this puppy puts out! I've got it being pushed by a Alpine MRP-M500 and it just pounds this sub. I'm very impressed! It really shakes all the mirrors and moves my wifes hair while listening to loud bass songs. This is in a Dodge Dakota quad cab with the small seat removed. If you pair this up with at least a 500W amp you won't be dissapointed.
Pros:
Lots of power. Small form factor
Cons:
None that I can tell
