Features

Woofers: The Kicker 48VCVR122 enclosure uses one 12" CompVR series dual voice coil subwoofer. The Kicker subwoofer features an injection-molded polypropylene cone with a ribbed Santoprene surround. The surround and cone are attached using Kicker's signature red double stitching, providing an outstanding bond.

Enclosure: The ported enclosure is made of heavy-duty MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) with extensive internal bracing, providing exceptional acoustic efficiency and deep powerful bass. The enclosure is covered in sleek black carpeting for added protection and a refined look.

Forced Air Cooling: Kicker uses their SoloKon technology to join the cone to the vented back brace, creating a single integrated unit. This forces air through the motor assembly allowing it to run 25% cooler and helping eliminate distortion. Perimeter venting allows air to circulate around the base of the cone, while Kicker's UniPlate system helps redirect heat away from the motor.

Speaker Terminals: A single pair of spring posts are mounted on the back of the enclosure and will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10-gauge in size. The dual 4Ω voice coil CompVR subwoofer is wired for a 2Ω load at the single set of spring posts.

Power: The Kicker 48VCVR122 can handle 200-400W RMS (800W peak).

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