Our take on the Kenwood KFC-W3012 by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
Kenwood's KFC Series high-performance subwoofers pound out big, full-bodied bass without sacrificing sound quality. Textured polypropylene cones offer extra rigidity for accurate bass output, while durable urethane foam surrounds facilitate long cone excursion for deeper low notes.
The KFC-W3012 12" subwoofer features a single 4-ohm voice coil, handling up to 400 watts RMS. Silver-plated push terminals provide clean contact points for your wiring. You can explore different mounting options with the reversible trim ring.
My friend let me use his two kenwoods after he got his kicker cvr. I put these babies in my single cab truck with 1.7 cubic feet a piece sealed and man they hit hard. not near as hard as the kicker cvr but for a small cab they work wonders. cant wait to get some kickers though

Woofer: The cone is constructed of polypropylene with a cosmetic fiber texture.
Surround Material: The woofer utilizes a high excursion urethane foam 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.
Long Stroke Design: The pole piece has been extended to provide a more linear magnetic field for woofer operation. This lowers distortion and provides the woofer with better low frequency response.
Double Stacked Magnet: The stacked magnet assembly is used to create a powerful linear motor with increased excursion capability for superior bass output.
Spring Post Assembly: The woofer features a compression input terminal assembly that will accept up to 8-gauge speaker wire.
