About the Kicker 48CWRT104

Big sound from a small sub

If you're looking for bass for a tight space, Kicker designed their CompRT subs with compact cars, pickup trucks, and ATVs in mind. The low-profile 48CWRT104 10” subwoofer performs just like a full-size sub, but without killing all your cargo space. This high-performance CompRT sub stands less than 3-1/2" tall, so your installation options are wide open. Kicker has redesigned the forced-air cooling system, so this sub will run cooler when you drive it hard (and you know you will).

Made to bring the boom

The 48CWRT104 comes equipped with a rigid injection-molded polypropylene cone that won't flex and cause distortion while you're cranking the bass. Its rubber surround will last through years of heavy use, combining with a special-design back and top plate to give you more excursion (which equals more bass) than other skinny subs.   

Made to fit many systems

This sub handles up to 400 watts RMS so make sure you've got a solid amp to power it. You can wire the dual voice coils for either 2- or 8-ohm total impedance, giving you more wiring options when setting up your system. This versatile sub sounds great in sealed or ported enclosures.

Product Research

Features

Dual Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 4Ω voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω load.

Shallow-Mount: Kicker's CompRT series is designed to minimize depth, giving you subwoofer options where standard enclosures don't fit.

All-Weather: Although not marine certified, Kicker describes the CompRT series as weatherproof.

Cooling: Kicker engineers developed a Forced Air Cooling system, using the motor structure to pull air across the voice coils, helping the sub run up to 20% cooler than the previous model.

Sealed Enclosures: Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music. Kicker recommends sealed enclosures from 0.4 ft³ to 1.25 ft³.

Vented Enclosures: Vented (or ported) 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 amount of power. Kicker recommends the following ported enclosures:

  • Minimum Enclosure Volume: 1.25 ft³ with a 10" x 2" x 20" slot port
  • Maximum Enclosure Volume: 1.75 ft³ with a 10" x 2½" x 20" slot port

Customer Q&A

6 questions already asked

Q
What amp would you recommend for this sub?
[ Adam  Nov 05, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
I am using the Kicker KMA800.1 to power up two subs at 800 watts RMS x 1 at 1 ohms and they thump real nice with clean deep bass (each sub is receiving 400 watts.) This is the marine rated amp because they are installed on my boat. You can go with the Kicker 46CXA800.1T if installing in your car, this is the same amp.

Im running the 46CXA8001 and its hits good in a seal box under my back seat in a F150.
[ Keith  Nov 06, 2021 ]
Q
Will this fit in the stock Toyota Fj sub enclosure?
[ Justin  Aug 28, 2021 ]

A
Looks like the FJ depth that I found online is 4.3inches. The Kickers mounting depth is 3.4 inches so it will fit, however where I found the answer it says that the FJ sub is an 8 and not a 10. Can you confirm that its a 10?

Q
Will the LED grill kicker has fit this sub?
[ Timothy  Aug 12, 2021 ]

Yes, I am using this same sub with the LED grille on my boat.
[ NICK  Aug 13, 2021 ]
Q
Will the LED grill work on this?
[ Timothy  Aug 12, 2021 ]

A
No need for double sided tape, the screw holes line up.
[ NICK  Aug 13, 2021 ]
A
could work with double side tape
[ JUAN RAUL  Aug 12, 2021 ]
Q
Can I wire two of these subs to equal a 1 ohm load using a cxa800.1 kicker mono amp?
[ Joseph G.  Jul 01, 2021 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, that amp will work perfectly with those subs. The subs will need to be wired in parallel to see a 1 ohm load at the amplifier.
