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.
Polypropylene Cone: The Kicker Comp subwoofer's super-rigid
injection-molded polypropylene cone features 360-degree back bracing to
completely eliminate flex and distortion.
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
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 in vented or sealed enclosures, and in free-air applications as well.
Sealed Enclosure Applications:
A sealed enclosure design gives the smoothest response with increased energy at
the lowest frequency between 20 to 30 Hz.
- Compact (minimum enclosure
volume): 0.5 cu/ft
SQ (maximum enclosure volume):
Recommended Vented Box
Volume: A vented enclosure design is
the choice for loud, high-performance bass for SPL contests.
- Compact: 0.66 cu/ft with a 1.5" x 8" slot port opening that
is 18" in depth
SQ: 1.2 cu/ft with a 1.5" x 8" slot port opening that is
12.25" in depth
Note: The SQ enclosures generates a flatter response curve and
extends sub-bass response.
Infinite Baffle Mounting: The Kicker Comp subwoofer does not require a
sealed or vented enclosure for good bass performance. The Comp subwoofer is
designed to also be used as a free-air driver. The infinite baffle mounting
method effectively utilizes the rear deck and trunk space of most sedan type
