Big boom for the buck
Strong bass adds a whole new dimension to your car's sound system, and Kicker Comp subwoofers give you tremendous bass value for your dollar. You'll hear and feel the power of Kicker bass without feeling like your wallet just got thumped.
2-ohm impedance for more power
Kicker's 10C122 12" subwoofer handles 150 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.
Kicker technology at work
This Comp sub features a flex-resistant polypropylene cone with 360-degree back bracing for hard-hitting lows without distortion. The ribbed foam surround helps to keep the cone on target, while double stitching ensures your investment won't come apart at the seams. A tough 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.

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.

Ease of Use
Bought these subs as an uprgrade from some old subs and these hit some much harder than my last ones! They are a perfect match for my amp (Rockford fosgate t400-2) I highly recommend these subs!
Pros: Hit hard Great sound Easy to install
Best Subs Ever
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
I got these subs around Christmas time last year, and they're still pounding away. I used my Christmas money to buy 2 of them and an alpine amp. That was all I got, and I must say, it was money well spent. I've got them in the trunk of my 1990 Olds. Cutlass Supreme, in a rather large sealed enclosure with grilles on them. If you're looking for amazing subs with a low resistance, then these are for you.
Pros: Low resistance, great sound
Cons: At the time, they were a little pricey, but now they're not bad.

Ribbed Foam Surround: The optimized ribbed foam surround allows extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL. The surround is double-stitched to the cone to add a mechanical fastener to the chemical adhesives. This prevents the cone and surround from separating in the harshest conditions.
Spiralead Tinsel Leads: The Kicker Comp subwoofer features durable Spiralead tinsel leads, which are woven into the woofer's progressive-roll polycotton spider, for added strength and reliability.
Steel Basket with Vented Pole Piece: The Kicker Comp subwoofer features a resilient, steel basket with coil-cooling perimeter venting and a vented pole piece for heat dissipation, so the high-temperature voice coil stays cool.
Speaker Terminals: The spring-loaded, nickel-plated terminals provide solid connections for speaker wire up to 10-gauge. Single banana plugs and pin connectors will also fit.
Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the outside edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet during installation.
Enclosure Versatility: The Kicker Comp subwoofer is versatile, performing well in vented or sealed enclosures, and in free-air applications also.
Sealed Enclosure Applications: A sealed enclosure design offers the smoothest response, with increased energy at the lowest frequencies (between 20 to 30 Hz).
- Compact (minimum enclosure volume): 1.25 cubic feet
- SQ (maximum enclosure volume): 3.5 cubic feet
Recommended Vented Box Volume: A vented enclosure design is the choice for loud, high-performance bass for SPL contests.
- Compact: 1.75 cubic feet with a 2" x 12.5" slot port opening that is 16" deep
- SQ: 2.25 cubic feet with a 2" x 12.5" slot port opening that is 16.375" deep
Note: The SQ enclosures generates a flatter response curve and extends sub-bass response.
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.
