Our take on the Kicker 40TCWS102

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 40TCWS102 loaded enclosure puts a thumping 10" subwoofer behind the seat of a truck or in any vehicle that's low on space. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for the subwoofer, 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 CompS sub

The 10" CompS sub features a flex-resistant polypropylene cone for hard-hitting lows without distortion, while the ribbed foam surround promotes long excursion and helps to keep the cone on target. The sub's 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 delivers more bass 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 banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Woofers: The Kicker 40TCWS102 enclosure uses one 10" CompS subwoofer, wired to present a 2Ω load.

  • 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. Once broken-in, the subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Awesomeness on a budget

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Perfect fit for my 2005 Chevy Colorado Reg Cab. It sounds great and is affordable. And it's Kicker...enough said.
Pros:
It comes with a factory box designed for the sub so it's plug and play. The bass is perfect for a little truck.
Cons:
none so far

Good bang for the buck

Written By Ali, Lexington, KY on Sunday, August 25, 2013
 
A good addition to the car audio system of someone who is not an audiophile and just wants some shaking, rattling and vibrating. It reproduces nothing below 30Hz, which for rap, hip-hop and some electronic music listeners might be a bad point. The base out of this tiny little 10" subwoofer is about hard bass sounds, nothing soft, which for some is good and for others is not.
Pros:
Good value. Nice design.
Cons:
Sound quality is above average. Shallow box depth makes it easy to tip over - must be secured to the floor with the provided metal tabs.

Good bass for cheap

Written By Sonomadriver, Houston, TX on Sunday, August 18, 2013
 
I bought this for my 1992 GMC Sonoma. It fit perfectly behind the rear seat and is being powered by the sub channel of my Arc Audio xdi803. It's getting about 400 watts and it seriously RIPS!!

I was very surprised at the output of this box, can't stop cranking it!
Pros:
Looks great Well built LOUD!
Cons:
It's just a Comp, so you can't dump a ton of power to it
