Overview

Our take on the Kicker 10CVR124

Kicker CompVR subs let you kick out the jams without tearing a hole in your wallet. These subs handle plenty of power, and get their fierce sound from tough, injection-molded polypropylene cones with reliable Santoprene™ surrounds. The unique SoloKon™ cone with its 360-degree back bracing keeps going strong when the bass gets heavy, while perimeter venting in the strong steel basket keeps the voice coils cool for dependable performance.

The 10CVR124 12" sub sports dual 4-ohm voice coils that give you more wiring options when setting up your system. The sub's cool-looking black finish highlights the potent low end you'll hear and feel. Boat owners: Kicker certifies the CompVR subs for marine use, so you can generate some serious bass waves out on the water.

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. Most car amplifiers are stable down to 2 ohms in standard mode, or 4 ohms in bridged operation.

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 300 and 600 watts RMS at 2 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Priced per speaker

It is a great sub. But the sound quality is a little lower than I thought it would be. I have on in my explorer in a ported sound ordnance box. I love it and it booms.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: For increased system flexibility, the woofer has two 4 ohm voice coils. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 2 ohm load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents an 8 ohm load. In addition, each coil may be connected to a different amplifier channel and each channel will see a 4 ohm load.

Cone Design: The Comp VR's super-rigid injection-molded polypropylene cone features 360-degree back bracing to completely eliminate flex and distortion.

Surround: The optimized ribbed Santoprene 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 Comp VR features durable Spiralead tinsel leads, which are woven into the woofer's progressive-roll polycotton spider, for added strength and reliability.

Basket and Motor Assembly: The strong steel basket features perimeter venting to help cool the high-temperature voice coil wires and prevent breakdown. The overall motor structure design is based on technology found in Kicker's flagship Solo-Baric line of subwoofers, and allows the sub to handle more power and take more abuse. The high-mass solid pole piece removes potentially damaging heat.

Speaker Terminals: The spring loaded, nickel-plated terminals provide solid connections for speaker wire up to 8 gauge. Single banana plugs and pin connectors will also fit.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker Comp VR speakers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum low-bass response. The high-performance suspension system makes the speaker very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately 2 weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the outside edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet during installation.

Enclosure Compatibility

Power Handling: The power handling specifications differ according to the type and size of the enclosure. The power handling specifications assume that both voice coils are in use. Note: Both voice coils in a dual voice coil speaker should always be connected.

Recommended Sealed Box Volume:

  • Compact (minimum enclosure volume): 1.0 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 400 watts RMS (200 watts per voice coil)
  • SQ (maximum enclosure volume): 4.6 cu/ft; the woofer can handle up to 300 watts RMS (150 watts per voice coil)

Recommended Vented Box Volume:

  • Compact: 1.75 cu/ft; 2.5" x 12.5" port opening; 20" port depth; the woofer can handle up to 300 watts RMS (150 watts per voice coil)
  • SQ: 2.25 cu/ft; 3" x 12.5" port opening; 20.5" port depth; the woofer can handle up to 300 watts RMS (150 watts per voice coil)

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Krissy  Jan 25, 2015 ]  Staff
What about wiring 4 of them off a monoblock amp .. What would you recommend [ chase  May 21, 2014 ]
I'm looking for more bass without touching the gain on the amp or bass boost. I still have my factory radio and factory speakers [ stephen  May 14, 2014 ]
I have one in a custom sealed box. 2013 Camaro. It puts out nice power and good sound. I have a 12cx300.1 kicker amp and it can take all of the power from the amp. I don't know what sound you are looking for but if you have two of these and a nice size amp with air space I don't think that you can go wrong. [ GREG C  May 13, 2014 ]
The max Rms you can get wit these is about 400. An one of the best amp to run these speakers is a kicker zx750.1 which is what i have. The speakers peak out at about 800watts and although this amp say its maxes at 750watts per channel, kicker underrates their amps. My amp makes 932watts per channel. The amps birth sheet told me. So the amp is plenty enough to power those speakers. [ BRANDON  May 13, 2014 ]
The spec is  800W Peak  400W RMS  Rigid SoloKon cone  Double Stitched Surround  Ribbed Santoprene Surround  Spring-Loaded Terminals  Spiralead Tinsel Leads So IMO a two channel 400 watt per channel @4ohm or a mono block 800 watt @ 2ohm http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Mobile/App/Product/Item/Specs.aspx?i=2064KX8K1&tp=35834&nvpair=YCMinimum_Impedance_Unbridged%7c2&nvpair=YCAmplifier_Class%7cD&nvpair=AG_General_Features%7cYCSpeaker_Level_Inputs&nvpair=FFCustomer_Rating%7c%5brank1%5d5+stars%5bimg%5d [ WILLIAM  May 13, 2014 ]
This will depend on the amp set-up that you have. You can find subwoofer wiring diagrams on our website here: http://www.crutchfield.com/learn/learningcenter/car/subwoofers_wiring.html?showAll=N [ Jeff  Feb 17, 2014 ]  Staff
