Built tough for great bass

The 42CWQ102 10" sub features a forged aluminum frame for maximum strength and accurate sound reproduction. The sub's injection-molded SoloKon™ polypropylene cone features special back bracing for strength and responsiveness, while a special-design Santoprene™ rubber surround allows greater cone excursion for increased output. Two 2-ohm voice coils give you extra flexibility in incorporating this sub into your system.

Handles up to 700 watts

This sub's advanced design keeps things cool when you are driving your system hard, so you'll get reliable performance. With up to 700 watts of RMS power handling, you'll get plenty of the deep, rich bass you need to make your music come alive.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 525 and 1050 watts RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Kicker Q-Class subwoofers incorporate cutting-edge technologies and superb construction to deliver an extraordinary musical experience in your vehicle. These subs are only sold by select dealers chosen by Kicker.

I have always been impressed with the Kicker sound and quality. They might be a little power hungry, but they make up for it with the awesome bass.

Huge sound small woofer!

Crutchfield customer from Fiskeville, RI on 1/24/2019

2016 GMC Sierra 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I recently purchased a GMC sierra double cab, and I built a sealed enclosure for under my rear seat. Space was an issue so I went with one 10 inch Q class. I am very impressed with this woofer. Sound quality is excellent, it is very tight and responsive, but it is also boomy and hits low frequencies well. It excellent at low volumes and and does not distort at higher volumes. I was very impressed with the output of this woofer. Ive always owned 12 inch subwoofers, usually in pairs and have had comp vr, comp vx, and l7s and usually in ported enclosures. I was a bit reluctant to try a smaller woofer, and in a sealed enclosure, but i am very impressed.

Pros: Loud clean bass, in a small enclosure.

Cons:

Product Research

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 2Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load; when wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω load.

Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs (but not dual), and bare wire up to 8 gauge.

Sealed Enclosure: A sealed enclosure design gives the smoothest response with increased energy at the lowest frequencies (between 20 and 30 Hz).

  • Minimum Volume: 0.66 ft³
  • Maximum Volume: 1.25 ft³

Vented Enclosure: A vented enclosure design increases efficiency relative to sealed enclosures.

  • Minimum Volume: 1.25 ft³ with a 2½" x 11¼" x 19¾" slot port
  • Maximum Volume: 2.25 ft³ with a 3" x 11¼" x 18" slot port

What size is the voice coil? 2.5 inches? 3 inches?
[ Benjammin'  Aug 02, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
I've looked at our information and the information including the manual for this series subwoofers on Kicker's site. I cannot find the diameter of the voice coils. You might try calling Kicker on 405-624-8583 to see if they can help get you that information. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
