About the Kenwood Excelon XR-W12F
The Kenwood Excelon XR-W12F 12" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. This shallow-mount sub measures just under 3-1/2" deep, so you can really get creative with your installation.
Big cone, big bass
The extremely light glass-fiber cone is 25% larger than last year's model, employing a honeycomb pattern that delivers quick response in demanding conditions without flexing. More cone surface area means this sub can move more air, so this design gives you powerful, accurate bass out of an extremely compact speaker. It's like getting an 13" sub in a 12" frame.
The sturdy butyl rubber surround helps to control the cone, so this woofer can rock hard without losing its punch. The cast aluminum basket offers a unique design that vents air out from the back and all sides of the subwoofer for exceptional heat dissipation. Pair this sub with the right amp and enclosure, and you'll get some powerful bass without losing too much space in your vehicle.
To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 350 and 675 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Kenwood Excelon XR-W12F reviews
I have two of the speakers in my 2002 Chevy Avalanche with the matching Kenwood amp. The speakers have great sound.
Pros: Great Sound
Cons: I have not had any problems with them and I would tell all to buy them.
