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.
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
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): 0.5 cubic
- SQ (maximum enclosure volume): 1.2 cubic feet
Recommended Vented Box Volume: A vented enclosure design is
the choice for loud, high-performance bass for SPL contests.
- Compact: 0.66 cubic feet with a
1.5" x 8" slot port opening that is 18"
SQ: 1.2 cubic feet with a 1.5" x
8" slot port opening that is 12.25" 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.
