Advanced sub design
When it comes to great subwoofers, Kicker has been there from the beginning. Now they've mounted their 12" CompVR sub in a rugged ported enclosure to rock your ride. The sub features a tough, injection-molded polypropylene cone with a Santoprene™ rubber surround to pump out the low end. The unique SoloKon™ cone with its 360-degree back bracing holds up under pressure, and its perimeter-vented basket combines with Kicker's UniPlate™ speaker design to keep things cool when the music's hot. This tough sub handles up to 400 watts RMS, so be sure your amplifier delivers the power it needs. Its 2-ohm impedance draws maximum power from your mono amp.

Woofers: The Kicker 48VCVR122 enclosure uses one 12" CompVR series dual voice coil subwoofer. The Kicker subwoofer features an injection-molded polypropylene cone with a ribbed 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. Perimeter venting allows air to circulate around the base of the cone, while Kicker's UniPlate system helps redirect heat away from the motor.
Speaker Terminals: A single pair of spring posts are mounted on the back of the enclosure and will accept pin connectors, single banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10-gauge in size. The dual 4Ω voice coil CompVR subwoofer is wired for a 2Ω load at the single set of spring posts.
Power: The Kicker 48VCVR122 can handle 200-400W RMS (800W peak).
Break-in Period: Due to the complex nature of Kicker CompVR 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.
