Raising the Competition with Kicker's CompVT Series

Kicker is a very well known company within the car audio industry and are constantly striving to be the best in innovation, quality, and power output. Their 2010 shallow mount CompVT series subwoofer accomplish all of those qualities and more. This series of subwoofer is available in various sizes with different power ratings to suit any preference desired. The single 2 ohm or 4 ohm version allows for multiple wiring configurations, giving the subwoofer some true versatility. The CompVT features a shallow mount design which is perfect for those with limited space but that still want a subwoofer that can really hit. The built-in steel clearance adapter plate, allows for real shallow installations by replacing part of the enclosure wall. These subwoofers are equipped with an injection molded SoloKon cone woofer and ribbed Santoprene surround for rigidity and optimum performance. The use of stitched surrounding enhances the strength of the cone giving you a product that you can depend on for a long period of time. Spring loaded terminals make installation quick and easy with an added secure connection. The CompVT uses a ventless pole piece and high temperature, shallow four-layer voice coil for heat dissipation. This reduces distortion and increases cleaner power output. Its shallow mount design and other features make the CompVT subwoofer perfect for any installation or application.

Subwoofer Features:

  • 12" Single 2 Ohm CompVT (CVT) Subwoofer
  • Shallow mount subwoofer allows for deep bass with minimum mounting depth

  • Ribbed Santoprene surround

  • Extra strong adhesive and stitching prevents the cone from detaching from the surround
  • Spiralead tinsel lead technology weaves the tinsel leads into the spider
  • Super rigid cone and 360-degree back bracing eliminate distortion
  • Sturdy steel basket holds the subwoofer mounted firmly
  • Steel basket features perimeter venting around the single voice coil
  • Strong spring-loaded terminals
  • Newly re-designed 2010 basket structure
  • Includes a built-in steel clearance adapter plate, which replaces part of the enclosure wall to allow shallower installations

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
CompVT (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
800 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
400 watts
Voice Coil(s)
Dual voice coil subs have more wiring flexibility than single voice coils subs; however, single voice coil subwoofers provide easier hookup options for wiring multiple subwoofers in parallel or series. You may also run a dual voice coil (DVC) sub in parallel, series, or combination. A quad voice coil has four voice coils and is equal to two dual voice coil subwoofers as far as wiring goes.
Single
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
2 ohms
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
25 - 350 Hz
Subwoofer Design
This is the design of the subwoofer or the opening of the subwoofer enclosure. Each design has it's own benefits, whether it is a square, circle, or oval.

Round/Circle: This is the typical and common subwoofer design. They have a round cone and are a circle in design.

Square: These woofers are able to achieve a greater cone area in a smaller space. Because of the greater surface area, some square subwoofers will be louder than a round subwoofer of the same size.

Round / Circle
Main Cone Color
This is the color of the speaker's or subwoofer's cone.
Dark Gray
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
SoloKön
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Santoprene Rubber
Subwoofer Grille
Most subwoofers are able to accommodate a universal grille; however, some subs include a grille and others have a specific, optional grille available for purchase separately. If "yes", then the subwoofer includes a grille. If "optional (sold separately)" the matching grille will need to be purchased in addition to the sub.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
Re-Cone Kit Available
Some higher end subwoofers have replaceable cone assemblies. In case of a blown woofer, a recone kit allows for a simple replacement, as opposed to purchasing an entire new subwoofer.
No

Recommended Enclosure Specifications

Recommended Enclosure Type
This is the recommended type of enclosure that the subwoofer should be installed into. Some subwoofers are specially designed for particular enclosures.

Sealed: These enclosures completely enclose the air inside the box. These boxes produce a tight bass.

Ported/Vented: These enclosures have a slot of air to escape from the box. The result is a sound that has more "boom".

Bandpass: These are a combination of both sealed and ported enclosures. They can be very efficient, but require tuning for the best response.

Ported / Vented
Sealed
Minimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.0 cubic feet
Maximum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
4.6 cubic feet
Minimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the minimum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
1.75 cubic feet
Maximum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the maximum ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in cubic feet.
2.25 cubic feet
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
4-3/8"
Cutout Diameter
The actual diameter of the hole you will need to cut out if you are creating a new mounting location for this speaker, or if you are mounting a subwoofer in a box.
11"
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Kicker CVT122 (10CVT122)

October 6, 2012

I have been loyal to kicker for fifteen or so years, and have always loved their ability to make big sound in small spaces. I had an old school kicker solobaric 12 in a custom box that was too small for a big new subwoofer (5 1/2depth). So I settled of this subwoofer because its kicker and the type R shallow or JL was far too expensive for me. I find this speaker to be slightly better than the 13 year old solobaric that was replaced.

February 8, 2015

I have this installed in a sealed enclosure, claiming a .98 cubic foot of space, behind my seat. I ordered the grill to go along with it, so it doesn't attack the back of my seat. It's powered by a Kenwood KAC-5001. It's a perfect match for the amp, it gets nice and low and punchy. I like it. Doesn't rattle neighbours windows but it can be heard. :D

Awesome shallow mounted 12's

February 10, 2013

I first got one for my truck in a sealed box and then I got another and put them in Ported duel box and they hit really hard. The sound really good in the sealed box for tight responsive bass and have really low bass in the ported for shallow boxes.

Nice sub

December 29, 2011

This sub hits really hard i have it in an 0.96 cubic foot sealed angled truck box hooked up at 2 ohms to an mtx jh600 amp and i was shocked at how hard this thing hit for a shallow mount sub you do need to follow the box specs for this sub to sound right i had it in a smaller box and it wasnt even close to sounding like it does in the new truck box.

Awesome Shallow Mount

January 10, 2011

I have two of these powered by a JL Audio G1700. I wasn't really sure which shallow mount subs I wanted(I had to get shallows because I have a 2009 Tundra). My brother convinced me to go with Kicker and I'm so glad I did. I built a custom box for my truck. I hooked them up and man did they slam. They really surprised me for shallow mount subs. They hit hard on songs they need to like rap, but tone down and hit just right for country and songs with less bass. Sonic sent them in good time and I would buy from them again.

I would definitely recommend these subs to anyone who has a tight space and wants some bass. i have a single cab ranger and i put 2 of these behind my seat with a rockford fosgate p500-2 amp and they sound great. they are not as powerful as a regular 12 but you still know there there. i would again highly recommend this product.

I have a 2015 Hyundai Tucson. And there isn't much space in the trunk. A normal box would take up too much. How well would this work in a Sealed enclosure? Connected to a CX300.1(Kicker) making 330 Watts RMS (2 Ohm)

How would you recommend wiring 2 subs Kicker CVT122 (10CVT122) to this amp? What size speaker wire should i use?

Best Answer: Hello Esteban,

First, we do NOT recommend this setup. The amplifier puts out far too much power at 1ohm (subs wired in parallel) and not enough at 4ohms (subs wired in series). If you are obligated to use this amplifier, then we suggest wiring the drivers to a 4ohm load (only using ONE output at the amp) as so:
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/product/img/subwoofer_wiring/2_subs_SVC_2_ohm_mono_variation1.jpg

If you still have the option, we suggest the Pioneer GM-D8601 instead, and simply giving each driver its own output. The amplifier will then wire the setup , internally, to a 1ohm load.
