Overview

Our take on the Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F 12" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures less than 4" deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW1200F 12" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures less than 4" deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The carbon-glass fiber cone employs a honeycomb pattern to deliver quick response in demanding conditions without flexing. The beefed-up rubber surround maintains control over the cone, minimizing distortion caused by resonance. A die-cast aluminum basket offers a rock-solid housing with plenty of venting to keep the heat down. The silver-plated push terminals offer convenient connections and provide excellent signal transfer.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 260 and 525 watts RMS at 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

I put two of these in my four door Silverado behind my back seat in a custom built ported box and they fit perfect. I have them on a 2800 watt amp with the kenwood indash and they just sound amazing. It catches almost every bass super clear. Defiantly got my money's worth.

Features

Flat Subwoofer: The Kenwood eXcelon flat subwoofer design is approximately 40% slimmer in height than a standard subwoofer. This makes them ideal for installation in the tightest of spaces such as behind or under the seat of a pickup truck.

Carbon-Glass Fiber Cone: The eXcelon flat woofer uses a carbon-glass fiber honeycomb cone which allows the woofer to be efficient and durable at the same time.

Rubber Surround: The Kenwood woofer features a smooth linear rubber surround for added durability and increased excursion resulting in exceptional deep bass response.

Super Linear Spider: The flat woofer utilizes a super linear spider for maximum control over the woofer's linear motion to improve overall sound quality.

Heat Transfer System: The Kenwood woofer features an advanced Heat Transfer System designed specifically for its slim-design to provide proper ventilation to keep the woofer cool.

Aluminum-Cast Basket: The woofer is housed in a cast-aluminum basket for increased rigidity and long-lasting reliability.

Spring Terminals: The flat woofer utilizes a pair of silver-plated spring terminals on one side of the woofer for connection to your amplifier's speaker wiring. The spring terminals will accept up to 10 AWG speaker wire.

Concealing Ring: The eXcelon woofer comes supplied with a removable, rubber concealing ring used to hide the woofer's mounting screws for a neat and professional looking installation. The concealing ring increases the top mounting height to 1".

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box size recommended by Kenwood is 0.8 cu/ft.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Needed a 12" 4 ohm shallow mount sub. Replacing an MB Quart 12" that I blew (my fault). It sounds fantastic, is very well made. [ Matthew  Jun 17, 2017 ]

2 questions already asked

Kenwood doesn't specify a break-in period for this particular model; however we've found that most car audio subwoofers require a break-in period of 12 to 24 hours of playback before they will deliver optimum sound quality. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159 [ Larry  Apr 25, 2016 ]  Staff
We show the max air space as 0.8, so for 2 it would be 1.6 cu/ft. [ Jeff  Apr 04, 2014 ]  Staff
