About the Kenwood KFC-W3010
Whip up the sound in your system with a blast from a Kenwood "Typhoon" subwoofer. The W3010 12" sub rolls out plenty of deep clean bass, thanks to its incredibly strong woofer cone. Distinctive swirl-design ribs reinforce the cone for extra stiffness, so the bass stays clean when the tones go low.
The high-roll surround features a flat edge for added durability, and the overbuilt magnet structure and voice coil helps the sub handle plenty of power this sub won't bottom out when you drive it hard. This efficient sub works in either sealed or ported enclosures.

Woofer: The cone is constructed of pearl mica injection-molded polypropylene. Uniform pearl mica crystals form an overlapping structure that adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene; the result is reduced distortion and improved reliability.
Tornado Woofer Cone: The cone is formed with three raised ridges around the circumference of the cone. The width of each ridge is graduated, making a tornado-like appearance. The ridges make the Tornado Cone much more rigid than conventional cones, with resonance frequencies that are more than an octave higher. Additionally, the Tornado Cone's resonance is of a more random nature than those of conventional cones, which reduces their intensity. Since the resonance frequencies are lower in amplitude and far above the woofer's useable frequency range, they are much less audible, resulting in clearer, more detailed bass sound.
Surround Material: The urethane foam surround has very high internal loss, which reduces speaker cone distortion.
Extended Pole Piece: The pole piece has been extended to provide a more linear magnetic field for woofer operation. This lowers distortion and provides the woofer with better low frequency response.
Vented Pole Piece: The vented pole piece allows air to circulate in the voice coil gap; air circulating in the voice coil gap helps dissipate heat and results in greater power handling and increased reliability.
Gold-plated Speaker Terminals: This sub allows you to connect the speaker wire using quick-slide connectors or spade connectors. The width of the slide terminals are 0.187". To use the spade connectors, there are screw terminals with a maximum width of 0.365".
Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by Kenwood range from 0.8 cu/ft to 1.5 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Kenwood is 1.0 cu/ft.
Vented Box Volume: The vented box sizes recommended by Kenwood range from 1.0 cu/ft to 2.0 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size recommended by Kenwood is 1.5 cu/ft. One 3" diameter x 7" long port should be used with a 1.5 cu/ft enclosure.
Band-Pass: The information on the Kenwood box lists band-pass as another enclosure option, but no band-pass information is included in the manual.
Power Handling: Although The specifications section of the manual lists two power handling specifications, "Rated Power Handling" and "Peak Power Handling", Kenwood has established "Rated", "Maximum" and "Peak" input power ratings for this woofer. The "Rated" input power spec is equivalent to the RMS Power Handling, the "Maximum" input power rating is a continuous power handling specification, and the "Peak" input power rating is equal to the "Peak Power Handling" spec listed in the manual. The power ratings are as follows:
- "Rated" input power: 200 watts
- "Maximum" continuous input power: 400 watts
- "Peak" input power: 1000 watts
