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 Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
CompVT (CVT)
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.
4 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.

cvt 12''

November 3, 2011

These speakers are a great value for their price. They hit verry hard but are a little distorted when compared to higher value subs. They fit great under the back of my 08 sierra crew and i'm verry happy with my purchase. Thanks Sonic!

Not Impressed!

June 7, 2011

I bought this sub for to go behind my the seat of my crew cab f-250. Major pain to get it to fit properly. Finally got it in there and it will not handle the lows like my 15 year old JL 8's will. Good sub if all you listen to is that head bangin' rock or metal. Not so good for hitting the lows or sustaining a long bass line. Found that it liked to bottom out a lot also. This is a good place to buy from tho.

Sounds Great.

May 11, 2011

I orginally bought the 07CVT124, but sonicelectronix sent me the 10CVT124 and its sounds great. I have it under the back seat of my Ford F150 and for the size of the box, it still sounds amazing. I wish I could add another one!

Great buy for regular cab trucks

March 24, 2011

I have owned two of these subs for about a year now and I have been pleased with the results. I have both wired to a BOSS 1600.2 watt OYNX amp which I also got from this site. The subs are wired in a series circuit which makes an 8 ohm load overall. They hit really well at higher frequencies but have trouble with the really low end frequencies. This sub is also in a 0.98 angled sealed box which I got at this site. The Kicker cvt 12" subwoofer is an overall great buy for very limited space like behind the bench seat of a regular cab truck.

Deep bass for a shallow mount

December 5, 2010

Before these I had 2 Kicker CVR 10's hooked up to a Kicker ZX750.1 amp. The CVT's are a little bit deeper sounding than the 10's but the 10's flex more than the 12's.
