Overview

Our take on the Kenwood KFC-WS12

The Kenwood KFC-WS12 12" shallow-mount "flat" subwoofer makes it a breeze to find a space for bass in those hard-to-fit areas of your vehicle. Its low-profile design means it thrives in compact enclosures, but don't be fooled by this sub's small stature — its rugged construction and advanced materials make it a low-end dynamo.

The Kenwood KFC-WS12 12" shallow-mount "flat" subwoofer makes it a breeze to find a space for bass in those hard-to-fit areas of your vehicle. Its low-profile design means it thrives in compact enclosures, but don't be fooled by this sub's small stature — its rugged construction and advanced materials make it a low-end dynamo.

The glass-fiber cone offers exceptional strength without added heft that can slow speaker response, and the cone's honeycomb design lets the woofer deliver hard-hitting bass that's accurate and musical. The thick rubber surround maintains control over the cone, minimizing distortion caused by resonance.

Kenwood uses plenty of venting in the tough die-cast aluminum basket, so heat is shunted away from the internal works. Silver-plated push terminals offer convenient connections and provide excellent signal transfer.

Features

Woofer: The Kenwood KFC-WS12 Flat Subwoofer features a glass-fiber honeycomb cone woofer.

Smooth Linear Surround: The woofer utilizes a smooth linear rubber surround for added durability and better bass performance.

Super Linear Spider: The woofer features a Super Linear Spider design. In this design, the Spider roll gradually becomes higher towards the center enabling this area to withstand more stress with less stretching. This design transfers up and down movement outward to reduce stretching the center area of the woofer. Because the spider's outward portion has more surface area to better dissipate stress from the center, this helps to reduce mechanical damage during increased excursion and enables the subwoofer to withstand more power.

Aluminum Die-Cast Basket: The KFC-WS12 utilizes an aluminum die-cast basket for added rigidity and support.

Spring Post Assembly: The woofer features a compression input terminal assembly that will accept up to 10-gauge speaker wire.

Rubber Trim-Ring: The KFC-WS12 comes with a rubber trim-ring which hides the woofer's screw-holes for a neat, professional looking install.
