Built tough for maximum impact

The KFC-XW1221HP sub features a two-piece polypropylene cone with the rigidity you need to minimize distortion for maximum impact. This 2-ohm sub handles up to 500 watts RMS, so it's a perfect match for the Kenwood Excelon X502-1 mono amp. This speaker works in enclosures as small as 1.25 cubic feet, and you can install it in either sealed or ported boxes. The CA-121G steel-mesh grille (sold separately) protects your sub from accidental damage. When you're looking for the impact you need for all kinds of music, this sub is ready to rock.

Product Research

Features

Sealed Enclosure Applications: Kenwood recommends a sealed enclosure volume of 1.25 ft³ (0.8 ft³ to 1.8 ft³ acceptable). Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer, will handle a lot of power, and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable for all types of music.

Ported Enclosure Applications: Kenwood recommends a ported enclosure volume of 1.5 ft³ (1.2 ft³ to 2 ft³ acceptable) with a 12¾" wide x 1⅜" tall x 29" long slot port. Ported (or vented) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed, so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from a given amount of power. However, this efficiency comes at the expense of very low frequency output.

Spring Terminals: The spring post terminals will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10-gauge.

Additional Measurements: When mounted without the trim ring, the sub has these measurements:

  • Mounting Height: 0.54"
  • Flange Height: 0.196"
  • Frame Diameter: 12.54"

Warranty Note: Although the information included with these speakers indicates a 1-year warranty, they are actually covered by the Kenwood eXcelon 2-year warranty.
