About the Kicker CompVR 43CVR124

Built to handle abuse

Kicker's CompVR Series 43CVR124 sub delivers serious bass without tearing a hole in your wallet. This 12" sub handles up to 400 watts RMS, thanks to a tough, injection-molded polypropylene cone supported by a reliable Santoprene™ surround. The unique SoloKon™ cone with its 360-degree back bracing keeps going strong when the bass gets heavy, while perimeter venting in the strong steel basket keeps the voice coils cool for dependable performance.

Dual voice coils for wiring flexibility

The sub's dual 4-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system. The sub's cool-looking black finish highlights the potent low end you'll hear and feel.

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. 

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 300 and 600 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

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.

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: 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.

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 1.6 ft³ to 4.6 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 less power. Kicker recommends ported enclosures in the following range:

  • Minimum Enclosure Volume: 1.75 ft³ with a 12-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 20" slot port
  • Maximum Enclosure Volume: 2.25 ft³ with a 12-1/2" x 3" x 20-1/2" slot port

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
My son had these subs in his previous vehicle, and they sounded incredible, I have Kickers currently in my vehicle, but they are no where near the quality of these subs. [ Scott D.  Dec 04, 2018 ]
A
Kicker has always been outstanding with bass options and budget levels. In this case my son has a small vehicle and he wants to take advantage of about 3 cubic feet in his trunk and 400 WRMS to compliment his sound system. Since he is in Puerto Rico, its easier for me to tell him what to build and prepare the wiring for then just to drop in the Sub and fine tune. Instead of building a multi-sub system and wiring for him and sending it over. System done...Son Happy!! [ JamesTowers  Nov 26, 2018 ]

I don't know a whole lot about car audio. Mechanically I am inclined, but when it comes to wires I tend to just shut my brain off. The easily accessible information made my purchase easy on this website. I wish more websites had similar attributes. I've heard Kicker subs in many other vehicles and I am always impressed so, combined with the help of crutchfields website and personal experience I sought this item out. [ Broc  Nov 26, 2017 ]

I've heard good things about them.. [ Melvin  Nov 19, 2017 ]

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
