Heat Transfer System: A dual ventilation system design helps
keep the motor structure cool, improving power handling and longevity.
Double Stacked Magnet: The stacked magnet assembly is used
to create a powerful linear motor for superior bass output.
Spring Terminals: The spring post terminals on one side of
the woofer connect to your amplifier's wiring. The posts will accept pin
connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 8 gauge.
Sealed Box: Kenwood recommends a sealed enclosure with an
optimum internal volume of 0.65 ft³ (from 0.4 ft³ to 1.0 ft³ is acceptable).
Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of
power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types
Ported Box: Kenwood recommends a ported enclosure with an
internal volume of 1.2 ft³ (from 0.9 ft³ to 1.7 ft³ is acceptable) using
an 11" x 1-1/4" x 15-3/4" slot port. Ported (or vented)
enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they
are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output
from a given amp. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low
