Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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
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.
200 watts
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.
400 watts
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
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.

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Sealed
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
1
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
Truck Style, Slim with Angled Front
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
9-1/16"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
16-5/16"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
4-1/8"
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
5-1/16"
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
3/4"
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
1
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Spring posts
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Black
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.

shocking

January 6, 2011

I have the prior model. If anything like that one it is the most amazing set of pancake 8's ever. They are surprisingly clean and clear, especially if you know how to phase, i.e. tune your system.I have very limited space in Tundra. Two of these with recommended wattage and you will not be disappointed. Not for a contest, but everyone will know you have bumps if you want them to. Friend has nice 10" set up w/full size enclosure. We both marvel at what i have in these.

Solid Compact Sub

August 31, 2014

I have this in my Tacoma and it was small enough to fit where the factory amp and sub was perfectly. It is a solid performing speaker, compared to the JL Micro 8 I have in my other vehicle, this Kicker 8 is hands down a better value for your money! I do wish it came with a speaker grill attached though.

Great for what it is designed for.

I have 2 of these in my 05 dakota. Great for Metal, Rock, Pop, Jazz, Country. If you want booming deep bass, this is not for you. They are very compact to fit in tight spaces. They are MUCH better than those very thin compact subs with the built in amps. Had one of those and sent it back, waste of money. For what they are, I am happy and a great price. Have them amped @ 200 watts each.

Very good to round out the sound

March 26, 2014

I managed to stuff this under the passenger seat of a Ford Focus with some finesse and I'm happy overall with its performance. If you listen to rap music or anything with long low bass notes then this definitely isn't going to be something you want. It's great for rock or music with a lot of drums as it will really fill in what your door speakers miss out on. Running on a 4 channel Autotek amp with two channels going to the door speakers and it was very easy to setup just be sure to leave the bass boost all the way down. Seems very well built and solid for its size. I replaced a Sound Ordinance powered 8" thing and the sound is at least double the quality and volume if not more.

Small Sub Big Sound

February 14, 2014

Having a Mini Van does not mean that I have a ton kicker just the opposite, I drive a Honda Odyssey with a fold down 3rd row seat (folds flat into the floor) And if you want to keep functionality then you need to get creative and creative I got with the small Kicker, my local install shop recommended this unit for its foot print and it's sound but like most Install shops you will pay a premium hence why I went to Sonix new unit cheap price and super big sound and when I say big sound I mean big enough to fill up the van and not make it sound tinny (think submarine with echo) But full and rich bringing Life to my music even from the stock system although long gone is the stock system and replaced with a new Pioneer the bass is still the same hard and Impressive/ word of note have a good amp to drive the kicker don't be timid the RMS is 200 (continuous power)

Good deal and fit

February 3, 2014

Fits in a very tight space in my 02 911 and adds great bass to the shortcomings of the factory stereo. I did have to mount it horizontally which makes it somewhat prone to popping at super load levels like any other speaker (that's just physics). It doesn't pop at these high levels when mounted vertically. Easily handles 200W RMS as advertised (I actually measured it with a VOM). I feel like I made a good purchase with this and it saved me the time of having to make a custom enclosure since it fit perfectly behind my rear seats. It won't shake the neighbor's windows, but supplies more than enough bass for my small interior.

Decent little sub

April 18, 2013

I already had alpine 6x9's and 6.5's installed in my ext cab Tacoma, so this sub didn't add as much bass as I wanted. But, it made the bass much clearer. It sounds great for rock music, but comes up a little short for hip hop or other styles with a lot of sub bass. Great quality for the price. It's perfect if you want something stealthy to add a little bass to a stock sound system.

Pleased

October 11, 2011

I bought this particular sub/box combo because just about nothing seemed like it would fit without building a custom box. This sub fits pretty good behind the seat of a 93 toyota pickup even with the humpidy dumpidy floorboard back there. Was very pleased with the sound of this sub too. I'm pushing mine with a Kicker Amp maybe 3 to 400 watt RMS. I had to turn down this little guy alot in order for it to sound good in my little truck. Plenty! of punch for its size. This was no surprise... I have had two 10" kicker subs that sounded alot better than most 12's. If your tight on room, and want good sound without spending stupid amounts of money, buy one of these, you won't be dissapointed, unless your audio equipment is hooked up incorrectly. lol!
