A match made in heaven...or Oklahoma

Kicker's 48DCWR122 loaded enclosure puts a pair of thumping 12" CompR subs behind your music. The rugged ported box was designed specifically for these subs, so you can count on getting maximum performance, no matter what kind of tunes you enjoy.

Two hard-hitting CompR subs

Each 12" CompR subwoofer features a tough, polypropylene cone that stays rigid during intense play sessions so you hear accurate bass. A custom-designed back and top plate give the woofers plenty of room to travel, while the durable rubber surround helps to control cone movement during a heavy workout. These subs use extensive venting in their heavy steel baskets to shrug off heat, so you can count on reliable performance.   

Heavy-duty enclosure

Sturdy MDF construction ensures long-lasting performance from the enclosure, and the specially designed front-facing port enhances bass production without getting sloppy. The enclosure's 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amplifier. This Kicker will handle up to 1000 watts RMS, so make sure you pick an amp that'll make those CompR subs happy.

Product Research

Features

Woofers: The Kicker 48DCWR122 enclosure uses two 12" CompR series subwoofers. Each Kicker subwoofer features a polypropylene cone with a Santoprene surround. The surround and cone are attached using Kicker's signature red double stitching, providing an outstanding bond.

Enclosure: The ported enclosure is made of heavy-duty MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) with extensive internal bracing, providing exceptional acoustic efficiency and deep powerful bass. The enclosure is covered in sleek black carpeting for added protection and a refined look.

Forced Air Cooling: Kicker uses their SoloKon technology to join the cone to the vented back brace, creating a single integrated unit. This forces air through the motor assembly allowing it to run 25% cooler and helping eliminate distortion.

Speaker Terminals: A single pair of spring posts are mounted on the back of the enclosure (toward the right side) and will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

Power: The dual CompR subwoofers can handle up to 1000W RMS (2000W peak), and are wired for a 2Ω load at the single pair of spring posts.

Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker CompR 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.

Q
Can i wire both subs together in series and make it 8 ohm total?
jay  Feb 28, 2024
1 answer
A
You cannot, Jay. The Kicker 48DCWR122 comes pre-wired internally and we do not recommend any modification to the prefabricated subwoofer boxes. If your plan needs 8-ohms total impedance, use a pair of the same Kicker CompR 12" speaker in dual 2-ohm coils below. Paired with the SPL Boxes SB212SV in the second link (with dual speaker wiring terminals, one for each subwoofer) would allow you to wire to 8-ohms much easier! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_20648CR122/Kicker-CompR-48CWR122.html https://www.crutchfield.com/p_419SB212SV/SPL-Boxes-SB212SV.html

I already have two 12" Comp R subs. How much for just the ported, box enclosure?

This Kicker setup is only available as a combo Arthur, we do not sell only the Kicker empty subwoofer box. We do carry the SPL Boxes SB212SV empty ported box in the link below, and this will sound great with a pair of Kicker 12" subwoofers installed! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_419SB212SV/SPL-Boxes-SB212SV.html

Tuning frequency?
patrick  Nov 05, 2022

A
That specification is sadly not listed by Kicker with these enclosures, Patrick. With that slot port you are sure to have this box play low and provide deep bass. These specs might be able to be sourced directly from Kicker, but you may have better results experimenting with setup by ear with your low pass crossover. I do apologize for the limited info, but I hope this helps!

Q
I need to replace speaker 12"48DCWR122 my Amp is Kicker CX1200.1 is that too much amp?

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.

Q
These are the dual 2ohm VOice coil subs correct? I know the 122 nomenclature says so.. want to confirm I can rewire the box to 1ohm instead of the supplied 2ohm so I can power two of these properly with a CXA800 amp at 1ohm and 900watts?
rick1  Aug 14, 2022

This enclsoure is using two of the Kicker CompR 48CWR122 subs. You are correct that these are Dual 2 ohm voice coils, however two of these cannot be wired to 1 ohm. Two of these subs can be wired in parallel to .5 ohms, which that amp does not support, or they can be wired in series to 2 ohms which is how these are wired internally. If need help finding an amp to match these subs, give us a call at 1-800-324-9695 and we'll be happy to help!

Kicker doesn't list the exact internal volume, but this enclosure has been designed specifically to maximize the performance of the 12" CompR subs that are installed.

Q
Can I use a 2 ohm 1200 watts rms mono amplifier with the kicker DCWR12 without damaging them?
kenneth  Mar 01, 2022

A
Yes, these come with a Kicker certificate that says they are actually rated at a little over 1200 watts rms.
