Kicker's space-saving CompVT subwoofers combine outstanding power handling with the ability to fit in your vehicle's tight spots. These extra-shallow speakers combine extended cone excursion and a low-profile frame, without sacrificing sound quality or bass impact.

6-3/4" sub, less than 3" deep
Kicker's 10CVT654 6-3/4" sub handles up to a hefty 150 watts RMS, while requiring less than 3 inches of mounting depth. The rigid, injection-molded polypropylene cone provides excellent definition and depth, while the ribbed Santoprene™ rubber surround helps control cone movement for accurate response. Perimeter venting on the stamped-steel basket keeps the sub cool under pressure. And Kicker certifies this tough little sub as suitable for marine use.

Space-saving features
This versatile subwoofer works in a sealed box, so you can build your own custom enclosure. This sub also works in free-air applications, so you can install it without an enclosure in car doors, rear decks, and other places too tight for normal subs. A unique design lets you mount the CompVT sub directly against the back wall of an enclosure to save even more space. Use your imagination — this Kicker CompVT sub lets you put well-rounded bass in almost any vehicle or boat.

Features

Spoke Cone: The modified-spoke cone design helps provide maximum excursion from a slender basket. The ultra high performance injection molded polypropylene cone remains rigid and minimizes cone flex, lowering harmonic distortion. Distortion in the cone is further reduced with 360° back bracing.

Santoprene Surround: The optimized ribbed Santoprene surround allows extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL. The surround is stitched to the cone to add a mechanical fastener to the chemical adhesives. This prevents the cone and surround from separating in the harshest conditions.

Basket and Motor Assembly: The high-strength steel basket features a low-profile open design, and provides a solid foundation for the precision-aligned motor assembly. Perimeter venting relieves pressure under the spider, supports a linear excursion, and helps dissipate heat from the voice coil and motor structure.

Tinsel Leads: CVT subwoofers use Spiralead tinsel-lead technology, which allows the ideal amount of flex for better strength and durability. The tinsel lead wires are woven into the spider to relieve mechanical stress.

Spring-Loaded Terminals: The Kicker CVT subwoofer features special spring-loaded binding posts for minimizing depth.

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. The boot is removable if needed for tight installations.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Comp VT speakers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum low-bass response. The high-performance suspension system makes the speaker very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately 2 weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Enclosure Compatibility

Shallow-Mount: Kicker's new CVT series is designed to minimize depth, giving you subwoofer options where standard enclosures don't fit. The vent-less, solid-pole design allows the woofer to be mounted directly against the rear wall of a sealed. The spring-loaded binding posts are mounted parallel to the cone surface to minimize depth. Also the steel Clearance Adapter Plate enables you to cut out part of the back of the enclosure to create more room for the woofer magnet, subtracting the enclosure wall depth from the equation.

Recommended Enclosure: Kicker recommends a sealed enclosure for the 08CVT654. A vented enclosure is not recommended. The enclosure should be filled to 50% with loose poly-fil (polyester fiberfill) stuffing. The panel dimensions for a 0.2 cubic foot compact sealed enclosure (using 1/2" thick MDF) are:

  • Front and Rear Panels: 14" x 14"
  • Top and Bottom Panels: 14" x 2"
  • Side Panels: 12.5" x 2"

Recommended Sealed Box Volume:

  • Compact (minimum enclosure volume): 0.2 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 150 watts RMS.
  • SQ (maximum enclosure volume): 3.0 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 150 watts RMS

Free-air Compatible: The subwoofer is also designed to be mounted without an enclosure. The subwoofer can be mounted on a baffle board which separates two areas of the vehicle. For instance, you could mount this woofer to a board attached to the rear deck or placed in the trunk against the rear seat. The trunk acts as the enclosure housing the subwoofer. Free-air subwoofers save space and have flat frequency response.
