Boost your bottom end

When it's time for more bass on your boat, Kicker's 43KMW104 10" marine sub delivers the thump you crave, whether it's installed in a bulkhead or housed in an enclosure. This rugged 4-ohm sub adds the low-frequency power your music needs to project over engine, wind, and wave noise, along with the excitement of multi-color LED accent lighting that's built into Kicker's sub grilles.

Lighting options

The LED lighting is built into Kicker's sub grilles, which are sold separately. These rugged ABS plastic grilles are available in Charcoal, Chrome, or White finishes, so you can choose the look that's just right for your boat. They're built to withstand the rigors of life on the water, so they'll give you great light and last a long time.

Once the grille is in place, you can access twenty color options as well as 19 dynamic modes using the optional KMLC remote. The KMLC gives you multi-function control of the LED lighting by managing color and dynamic mode functions, including adjustable brightness, fade, speed/strobe, and auto save.

Tough enough for marine use

Designed and built to withstand the rigors of a marine environment, the 43KMW104 meets or exceeds industry standards for resistance to corrosion, humidity, and UV exposure. The woofer sports an integrated moisture-draining system, plus stainless steel hardware, and a splash-resistant locking terminal cover. A shielded magnet won't interfere with compasses and other sensitive navigation equipment.

Product Research

Features

Marine-ready: The Kicker KMW10 Marine Subwoofer is engineered to meet or exceed industry standards for environmental humidity and corrosion, and for material degradation due to UV exposure.

Terminal Cover: The speaker terminals feature a splash- and spray-resistant locking cover. The cover also provides strain relief, insulation, and corrosion protection.

Stainless Hardware: The provided hardware is forged from corrosion-proof 316L stainless steel.

Grille: There are optional grilles with LED lighting available in three finishes, item number 206KMW10CR in chrome, item number 206KMW10GC in charcoal, and 206KMW10GW in white, all sold separately.

Sealed Enclosures: Sealed enclosures give the smoothest response, with increased energy at the lowest frequencies (20-40 Hz). The KMW10 performs well in any size sealed enclosure between 1.0 ft³ and 2.4 ft³. Smaller enclosures produce high-impact bass and larger enclosures extend the low frequency performance.

Vented Enclosures: Vented enclosures increase bass efficiency, and the minimum volume version still fits in many space-limited applications. Because of the length of the recommended ports, Kicker recommends slot ports instead of round ports.

  • Minimum Volume: internal volume of 1.25 ft³, with a slot port 1.5" high x 10.5" wide x 14.5" long
  • Maximum Volume: internal volume of 1.75 ft³, with a slot port 1.5" high x 10.5" wide x 13.25" long

Free-air Mounting: In addition to being compatible with sealed and ported enclosures, the woofer can be used in free-air (infinite baffle) applications.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Needed a subwoofer for my seadoo jet boat and this seemed like it would fit the bill. Same price as Amazon but my helpful advisor (Norm) and Crutchfield's customer service reputation led me to purchase it here! [ Sam  Jun 28, 2018 ]

1 question already asked

Q
Does this subwoofer have to be mounted in a box? It states free-air suitable. Was thinking of mounting it in the wall of my center console, no box.

A
I mounted it in a Dual Console boat, in the footwell area, seems to work well enough there, the chamber is somewhat enclosed, should have used a larger amp to drive it, I used the smallest one that would power it.
