About the Kicker Q-Class 42CWQ124

L7 + round frame = CompQ

When Kicker introduced their L7™ series subwoofers, the combination of rugged materials, quality workmanship, and innovative design raised the bar for aftermarket subwoofer performance. Now Kicker has created the CompQ™ Series subwoofer, a speaker that puts the L7's awesome performance into a round basket that'll mount in a standard enclosure.

Built tough for great bass

The 42CWQ124 12" 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 4-ohm voice coils make it easy to get more power from your mono amplifier.

Handles up to 850 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 850 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 600 and 1300 watts RMS at 2 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.

Product Research

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4Ω voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2Ω load; when wired in series, the woofer presents an 8Ω 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: 0.88 ft³
  • Maximum Volume: 2 ft³

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

  • Minimum Volume: 1.75 ft³ with a 2½" x 13¼" x 22½" slot port
  • Maximum Volume: 3.25 ft³ with a 3" x 13¼" x 14½" slot port

I've had this subwoofer in 4 different enclosures, 2 of which were ported. My current box and the one I enjoy the most is 2 cubes tuned at 37hz.
