Ported truck enclosure with one 4-ohm 10" Comp subwoofer
Our take on the Kicker 10TC104 by Crutchfield's John Pollard
A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma
Kicker's 10TC104 loaded enclosure puts a thumping 10" subwoofer behind the seat of a truck or in any vehicle that's low on space. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for the subwoofer, so you can count on getting maximum performance, no matter what kind of tunes you enjoy.
Hard-hitting Comp sub
The 10" Comp sub features a stiff injection-molded polymineral cone supported by a double-stitched ribbed foam surround for deep excursion. Kicker's back-braced cone design keeps the woofer stable during those hard hits, while the perimeter venting system helps cool the sub's internal parts during demanding performances. A strong steel basket provides a stable foundation that won't flex during hard use.
Sturdy 3/4" medium-density fiberboard ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the special-design side port delivers more bass without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 4-ohm impedance allows compatibility with a wide range of amplifiers.

This product was exactly what I needed in my minivan. It provides the bottom end sound I was missing. Great product!!!!!

Speaker Terminals: The spring post terminals are mounted on the left side of the enclosure and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.
Woofers: The Kicker 40TC104 enclosure uses one 4Ω, 10" Comp subwoofer.
- Ribbed Surround: The optimized ribbed foam surround allows extended cone excursion for additional bass output and higher SPL. The surround is double-stitched to the cone to add a mechanical fastener to the chemical adhesives; this prevents the cone and surround from separating in the harshest conditions.
- Spiralead Tinsel Leads: The durable Spiralead tinsel leads are woven into the woofer's spider, for added strength and reliability.
- Vented Pole Piece: The steel basket's vented pole piece and Kicker's perimeter venting slots contribute to the woofers' efficient cooling and durability.
Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Comp speakers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum bass response. The suspension system is very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately two weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. Once broken-in, the subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater bass extension.

Why did you buy this?
Good price and I love the quality and performance of Kicker products. [ Andrew Jul 12, 2016 ]
Very good treble, I had my equalizer set really high since the old were worn out, & had to turn treble & mid down a lot. Only problem is not as big as stock & not worn out so less bass. Going to try & fit 6 1/2" in the rear deck. [ Nicholas Apr 15, 2016 ]
I needed a 4 ohm Subwoofer. [ Gregory Mar 24, 2016 ]

I bought the Kicker 10TC104 Sub along with Sound Ordnance M-1350. The Kicker amp you are looking at seems to have a lot of power. Unless you are running an amp to power your other speakers you will drown out the sound with that much bass and you run the risk of blowing the sub. My Sound Ordnance M-1350 is adjustable with a knob I have installed on the lower part of my dash and I have it set to half way. And even with aftermarket front speakers it can drown them out. Hope this helps. [ Paul Jun 28, 2016 ]
The amp and the speaker is a great match. However, I do not own an F-150 so i cannot comment on fitment. [ JAMES Jun 28, 2016 ]
Yes [ ETHAN Jun 25, 2016 ]
Yes, this subwoofer requires an amplifier that produces roughly 100-200 watts RMS at 4-ohm in order to drive it at optimal performance. The Kicker CXA300.1 amp would be a good option as an example: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_206CXA3001/Kicker-43CXA300-1.html?tp=35834 If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to an expert Advisor via the "Contact Us" link at the top of our webpage.

I usually lay mine flat on its back. the terminals are on the side so there is no reason you can't. [ Kevin May 05, 2015 ]
Yes if you have an extended cab truck or even a 4 door pickup, you can use it to lay upward under the seat. [ Jarrod May 05, 2015 ]

thats based on your settings that you tune, its not the subwoofer [ john Aug 22, 2014 ]
Blake, i bought this for a very similar reason. I did not want the trunk rattle or to let everyone know i had a sub in my car from two blocks over. I have a 97 honda civic two door HX and this provides ample bass running off a Sound Ordnance M1350 350W x 1 at 2 Ohms Car Amplifier. I believe it would be a good purchase if you are not looking for super bass but does Kick if you ask it to. Hope this helps Cheers [ JEFF Aug 22, 2014 ]
I REALLY THINK SO. THE SUB IS TRULY THIN. I HAD NO PROBLEM WITH IT FITTING BEHIND THE BACK SEAT OF MY 2004 ENVOY. [ PHILL Aug 02, 2014 ]
U have lots of room hunder back sit, very sure it will [ ORLANDO Aug 01, 2014 ]
Don't know , I have it in a Tacoma it is exposed there was no wa turn to conceal it in my access cab but it works for me. [ JAMES Aug 01, 2014 ]
