The specially designed port gives you more bass without sounding sloppy.

Hard-hitting CompS sub

The 10" CompS sub features a flex-resistant polypropylene cone for hard-hitting lows without distortion, while the ribbed foam surround promotes long excursion and helps to keep the cone on target. The sub's steel basket provides a reliable foundation for big bass, and extensive venting ensures long-lasting performance that won't break down when the bass gets heavy.

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy 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 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier.

Features

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 40TCWS102 enclosure uses one 10" CompS subwoofer, wired to present a 2Ω load.

  • Ribbed Surround: The optimized ribbed polyurethane helps eliminate flex and distortion.
  • Spiralead Tinsel Leads: The durable Spiralead tinsel leads are woven into the woofer's spider, for added strength and reliability.
  • Steel Basket with Vented Pole Piece: The steel basket's vented pole piece and Kicker's Quad Venting slots contribute to the woofers' efficient cooling and durability.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker CompS speakers, they require a break-in period in order to produce optimum low-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 low-bass extension.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Referred by Chad at Crutchfield [ David  Feb 17, 2017 ]
Reasonable price and limited space. Kicker subwoofers have proven their quality to me over the years. [ Victor  Dec 24, 2016 ]
kicker rules and just look at it [ FRANK R  Dec 16, 2016 ]
Reviews are good and it should fit my 2005 chev crewcab. [ Travis  Nov 15, 2016 ]
fit behind seat [ DAVID  Aug 24, 2016 ]
I'm slowly getting in the love for bass, Wanted to treat my single cab Sierra to do a bit of that and I got this in hopes it will do just that. [ Doug  Jul 22, 2016 ]
Kicker quality in a compact thumper - just what my single cab truck has been screaming for! [ Paul  Apr 17, 2016 ]
I chose this because I have had great experiences with kicker subs and with the need to add some depth to my truck I felt this would be my best option given the price and my past experience with kicker [ travis  Jan 30, 2016 ]
good combo [ kevin  Dec 12, 2015 ]
I hear it's the best bang for the buck for a reg cab p/u truck. Plus their speaker quality is one if the best for car audio even affordable. [ Sharif C.  Dec 05, 2015 ]

2 of them fit perfectly behind my seat 2003 single cab pickup [ ANTHONY  Feb 17, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. Dimensions are 21-1/2"W x 15"H x 7-5/8"D1 x 4"D2 . You can find this information on the product page under "Product Highlights". Hope that helps. [ Kenny  Nov 15, 2016 ]  Staff
I really don't know. My subwoofer is behind my seat in a Chevy pickup. You can lay it on its back and it will still sound good. That speaker box is not that big so it might fit. [ SHANNON  May 31, 2016 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best match 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 models and help you make the best choice for your system. [ Kenny  Dec 26, 2015 ]  Staff
I'm using a Kicker amp. CX300 mono block. It pounds the speaker really good. In fax it broke the speaker wire connections inside the sub woofer box where they had soldered the speaker wires. I just put regular speaker connections back on and it works great. [ SHANNON  Dec 07, 2015 ]
I am Currently running a 300 watt Rorkford Fosgate amp @ 2 Ohms to this sub, its more than enough to power it and produce a good sound [ John  Dec 07, 2015 ]
I paired it with a Kicker CX 300.1 and love it. [ Joey  Dec 07, 2015 ]

Should be fine. All wire connections are located on the side of the box. [ Jason Michael  Jan 15, 2015 ]
Definitely buy a grill to cover the woofer. The only potential issue with a flat mount is smaller debris having an easier time making its way through the grill. I leave mine free and with slack in the speaker wire so I can reconfigure it based on what I'm stuffing in the back. Hope that helps [ NASH  Jan 14, 2015 ]
Yes it is , there's no problem with that it works fine but you need to put a cover on it to protect the speaker [ SAMUEL  Jan 14, 2015 ]
Should be just fine. [ Benjamin  Jan 14, 2015 ]
I have mine flat in the trunk of my 91 towncar. It's been working great for just over a year now. [ ANDREW  Jan 14, 2015 ]
