A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma

Kicker's 40VCWS122 loaded enclosure puts a thumping 12" CompS 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 CompS sub

The 12" 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.

  • ported enclosure with one 12" CompS subwoofer
  • 3/4" medium-density fiberboard construction covered with carpet
  • 2-ohm total impedance
  • power handling: 50-300 watts RMS (600 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.

Absolutely one of the best speakers I have ever had! Sounds great and easy to hook up. Took less than 5 minutes.

Great sub for the money

Have this sub in my 2014 Altima paired with the Sound Ordnance M1500 amp (500w @ 2ohms). The build quality of this sub is great right down to the terminal posts. This subs sweet spot is rap/hip-hop, electronic, EDM. Though it does add depth to all music in just plain rock seems a little soft but that was kind of expected with a ported enclosure. Doesn't take up a ton of room in the trunk and with the slightly angled back you can butt it up right to the back seat without a big void of space.

Pros: Build quality, power handling, size, big time thump for the money.

Cons: Not quite tight enough for rock music.

Great!

I love this sub in my car. Seems to have a somewhat low rms, but paired with the sound ordinance m1500 runs very nice and does not drown out the rest of the music but adds good bass for rock and pop and then when listening to rap this sub will vibrate your chest like crazy. Good price. Good quality. Not too big fits nicely in my 4runner.

Pros: Great sound Good size ported box

Cons: none

I have a 2006 Hyundai Azera with an infinity system. I wanted a sub that wasn't going to over power the music but that blended perfectly with the speakers already in the car. This sub was perfect, your not going to turn heads from a block away but anyone in the car will experience clear deep bass and I'm sure anyone close by will also.

Pros: Easy to use, still have a good portion of trunk left

Cons: none

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 40VCWS122 enclosure uses one 12" 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.
