About the Kicker Q-Class 42CWQ152
L7 + round frame = CompQ
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 42CWQ152 15" 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 1100 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 1100 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 775 and 1650 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 42CWQ152 reviews
Why 4 stars and not 5, sub itself is 11 out of 10, Crutchfield and Rockford support helped kicker A LOT, if not for them this would have been a negative number: packaging is aweful (these are dropshipped from kicker) if I may suggest please stock them and DO NOT TRUST KICKER WITH PACKAGING AND/or Shipping- why? Subs are large and heavy they are single box packed with very weak stairform that breaks and leave little white tiny dots everywhere. If you professionally ship them by pallet to a car audio shop - then maybe in my case I had a big hole on the box, ripped plastic bag inside, junk all over the sub to the point when I was ready to just return it. Also I bought two they shipped one claiming that they sent two but I know that 2 competition woofers can't weigh 40 lbs unless they are just not comp grade. In conclusion, I got my second sub Thank you KrSubs are great, made well, packaging is junk, delivery is horrible more like carriage and buggy or a pigeon mail
Pros: Monolith build Great sound
