A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma

Kicker's 40DCWS102 loaded enclosure puts a pair of thumping 10" CompS subs behind your music. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for the subs, 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.

Two hard-hitting CompS subs

Each 10" CompS sub features a flex-resistant polypropylene cone for hard-hitting lows without distortion, with a ribbed foam surround that promotes long excursion and helps to keep the cones on target. A heavy-duty steel basket provides a reliable foundation for big bass, and extensive venting ensures long-lasting performance that won't break down when the bass gets heavy.

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the special-design side port enhances bass production without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier.

Product Highlights:

  • ported enclosure with two 10" CompS subwoofers
  • medium-density fiberboard construction covered with carpet
  • 2-ohm total impedance
  • power handling: 100-600 watts RMS (1200 watts peak power)

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.

Features

Speaker Terminals: The single pair of spring post terminals is 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.

2Ω Load: The two subwoofers are internally wired to present a 2Ω load.

Woofers: The Kicker 40DCWS102 enclosure uses two 10" CompS subwoofers for loud, great-sounding bass.

  • 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.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker CompS 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.

Amazing Sub

This sub can be very loud when you push it to be loud. Although mine is a recent purchase and instal, needing some time to break in, I am completely satisfied with this sub. Using a Kenwood Excelon XR900-5 amp to power it with the LPF set to about 80Hz, this sub hits the lows well and hard. This sub can be heard from a fairly good distance but I did not buy it for that purpose. I wanted one that could hit lower notes while maintaining quality compared to previous sub and my advisor suggested this over my previous thought. Not much bigger than my previous JBL GT5-1202BR but more sensitive and hits lower. Overall, completely satisfied with purchase.

Only 2 minor downsides for me. 1. No grills or protection on front end of any sort. Not a huge issue for me as I rarely use the trunk anyway. 2. I would have preferred the covering to be black than grey to look better and match trunk interior.

Pros: Loud and powerful. Hits lows well without distorting Not too big as it can fit in my Honda Hefty feel so quality is there

Cons: Minor for me, might be bigger for others: No speaker grills for protection Grey covering (I'd like black instead)

First I'm not a teenager so I don't need a sub that is loud enough to hear me coming a mile away. However, I am sure this sub could do it. Fits perfectly in the Challenger. Matches perfectly with the Kicker amp.

Pros: Great fit and look to match the challenger.

Cons: I would have put some speaker grills over the speakers to prevent anything from banging into them. That's just my opinion.

This Kicker Sub lives up to it's name. Even with an over powered amp they performed well. No noticeable distortion was heard. I mounted the subs in the rear of my 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante. A great fit! Love them!!

Pros: A great product.

Cons: None comes to mind.

Yes, the Kicker 40DCWS102 is a ported enclosure with dual 10" CompS subwoofers. [ Krissy  Aug 10, 2014 ]  Staff
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  Jun 20, 2014 ]  Staff
That amp would not be a good match for this enclosure. This enclosure is wired for 2-ohm mono operation, and that amplifier is not designed to handle such a load.
