About the Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F 12" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures less than 4" deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F 12" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures less than 4" deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The carbon-glass fiber cone employs a honeycomb pattern to deliver quick response in demanding conditions without flexing. The beefed-up rubber surround maintains control over the cone, minimizing distortion caused by resonance. A die-cast aluminum basket offers a rock-solid housing with plenty of venting to keep the heat down. The silver-plated push terminals offer convenient connections and provide excellent signal transfer.

Features

Flat Subwoofer: The Kenwood eXcelon flat subwoofer design is approximately 40% slimmer in height than a standard subwoofer. This makes them ideal for installation in the tightest of spaces such as behind or under the seat of a pickup truck.

Carbon-Glass Fiber Cone: The eXcelon flat woofer uses a carbon-glass fiber honeycomb cone which allows the woofer to be efficient and durable at the same time.

Rubber Surround: The Kenwood woofer features a smooth linear rubber surround for added durability and increased excursion resulting in exceptional deep bass response.

Super Linear Spider: The flat woofer utilizes a super linear spider for maximum control over the woofer's linear motion to improve overall sound quality.

Heat Transfer System: The Kenwood woofer features an advanced Heat Transfer System designed specifically for its slim-design to provide proper ventilation to keep the woofer cool.

Aluminum-Cast Basket: The woofer is housed in a cast-aluminum basket for increased rigidity and long-lasting reliability.

Spring Terminals: The flat woofer utilizes a pair of silver-plated spring terminals on one side of the woofer for connection to your amplifier's speaker wiring. The spring terminals will accept up to 10 AWG speaker wire.

Concealing Ring: The eXcelon woofer comes supplied with a removable, rubber concealing ring used to hide the woofer's mounting screws for a neat and professional looking installation. The concealing ring increases the top mounting height to 1".

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box size recommended by Kenwood is 0.8 cu/ft.

Vented Box Volume: The vented box size recommended by Kenwood range is 0.8 cu/ft. One 3" diameter x 14" long port should be used with a 0.8 cu/ft enclosure.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
the reviews seem amazing and from what others tell me too. can't wait to find out for my self. [ Paul  Mar 01, 2018 ]
A
Needed a 12" 4 ohm shallow mount sub. Replacing an MB Quart 12" that I blew (my fault). It sounds fantastic, is very well made. [ Matthew  Jun 17, 2017 ]

Q
How to remove conceling ring on excelon subs?
[ dennis  Mar 02, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The rubber concealing ring should pull right off. You may have to get it started at one edge and work your way around.
[ Ryan  Mar 13, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Does this speaker come with a cover or can one be bought? I will be mounting it inside an old blazer behind the wheel well in the sheet metal and want it protected.

A
That Kenwood subwoofer does not come with a grill included but we do carry a 12" waffle-style grill and clamps that would be compatible: https://bit.ly/2tv1jw7. If you have any questions about that setup or want to look at alternatives you can also connect with one of our Product Advisors here: https://bit.ly/2QNxGQB

Q
How long is the break in period?
[ CHRISTOPHER  Apr 22, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Kenwood doesn't specify a break-in period for this particular model; however we've found that most car audio subwoofers require a break-in period of 12 to 24 hours of playback before they will deliver optimum sound quality. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159

Q
What is the maximum air space 2 of these can handle?
[ Braxton_p  Apr 02, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
We show the max air space as 0.8, so for 2 it would be 1.6 cu/ft.
