Overview

Our take on the Kicker 40TCWS104

Kicker's 40TCWS104 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.

A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma

Kicker's 40TCWS104 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.

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 4-ohm impedance allows compatibility with a wide range of amplifiers.

Definitely a great product but it would be nice if Crutchfield included speaker wire

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 4Ω 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?

It's simple and fits in my Silverado [ Patrick  Jan 28, 2017 ]
Very impressed with the sound and the quality hit this sub performs. I have it on a Kicker CX600.5 but would go great with a mono amp 300rms. [ Barry  Jan 18, 2017 ]
Good sensitivity rating, low frequency. [ Chris  Nov 13, 2016 ]
I love kicker. no exception. high 93.9db sensitivity proved for a very loud intense bass experience. also slim and compact, great for truck cab. looks awesome sounds awesome [ michael jonas  Mar 11, 2016 ]
Good reviews, good price, good brand, and looks like the best fit for my pickup. [ Mike  Dec 05, 2015 ]

11 questions already asked

I'm afraid we don't have any subwoofer box mounting information available for the '93 Accord Coupe. However, the Kicker 40TCWS104 loaded subwoofer enclosure measures 21-1/2" (width) x 15" (height) x 7-5/8" (depth at bottom) x 4" (depth at top). You may want to measure the available space in the Accord's trunk to verify fitment. Feel free to reach out to an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat if you have any further questions. I hope that helps! [ Larry  Oct 28, 2016 ]  Staff
No. Amp is seperate [ scott  Jul 04, 2016 ]
No it did not [ Doug  Jul 04, 2016 ]
No it doesnt [ JOHN  Jul 03, 2016 ]
No it does not. [ BERNARD F  Jul 03, 2016 ]
No it does not. It is only a box and subwoofer [ Ryen  Jul 03, 2016 ]
No. They are identical. You can use separate amplifier channels to power them and provide one with the left channel audio and the other with the right. There's not much point to this as bass frequencies are slow-moving so you won't hear much, if any, difference between left & right channel subwoofers. I hope that helps!

I have it in the back seat of my 1989 Toyota Hilux [ michael jonas  Jan 02, 2016 ]
Jeff, I'm not familiar with the Toyota Tacoma's crew cab. I do know it fits behind the back seat of my 2008 Ford F350 crew cab. [ Bruce  Mar 07, 2015 ]
Hi Jeff, I installed 2 of these behind the bench seat of a 2001 Chevy 2500hd regular cab. There was not much room to spare but they fit pretty much perfect, just a little tilted due to the tranny/driveshaft tunnel. I would imagine it would fit for your application as the newer Toyotas have more room, especially in a crew cab. Hope this helps, Mike [ MICHAEL  Mar 06, 2015 ]
I'm not sure how much room you have but. The sub is pretty big. It's probably 5 inches wide along the bottom and tapers up. [ BILLY  Mar 06, 2015 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Greg  Sep 06, 2014 ]  Staff
under a seat maybe not, dimensions are giving on crutchfield. I have one and its great [ michael jonas  Jan 02, 2016 ]
I install one in my F350 Crew Cab works great. [ Bruce  Aug 18, 2014 ]
Sorry, I have no idea. [ NIC  Aug 14, 2014 ]
I do not know my hunch is that it would not [ KEVIN  Jul 09, 2014 ]
Yeah sorry I meant subwoofer. And I want to put it in the under the backseat but I wanted to know if it fit under the backseat [ Jesse  Jul 08, 2014 ]
I don't have a super crew but wanted to clarify that this is just a subwoofer. You'll need to buy a separate amplifier. [ Jeffrey  Jul 08, 2014 ]
This itself is a subwoofer only you can find An amp that could fit under your backseat but the sub itself wouldn't fit under your seat it would however fit behind the backseats on either side. But as for the amp you can put I anywhere you want but most people put then close to the sub. [ CHRISTOPHER I  Jul 08, 2014 ]
Honestly, I'm not sure. I have a regular cab F-150. I think the base has a depth of about 7". You'll have to measure. [ MATT  Jul 08, 2014 ]
Maybe if the seat flips up. [ Beth  Jul 08, 2014 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Mar 24, 2014 ]  Staff
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing amps I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget. [ Jeff  Jan 05, 2014 ]  Staff
