Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Performance (Kenwood)
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.
1200 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).
34 - 300 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
85 dB
Xmax (millimeters)
Typically measured in millimeters, the Xmax value is the measure of a speaker cone's maximum excursion in one direction while maintaining a linear behavior.
15.1 mm
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.
Black
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.
Polypropylene
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.
Urethane
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.
No
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.
1.25 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.
1.75 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.
2.0 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.
2.5 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.
6-1/4"
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.

kenwood 12" subwoofer

October 12, 2012

Kenwood subwoofers are the way to get great sound for a cheap price. Dont like the price scare you away from these fantastic subs i have bought many pairs of these subs for not just myself but also for many of my friends and my friends friends. These subs work great with the 9105D 2 way amp 2400 watt max output and gives you a hell of a hit when the bass drops. I stand behind kenwoods products and i am a very satisfied installer and owner of kenwood products!!!!

Amazing!

July 12, 2012

I bought 2 of these subs 6 moths ago during the black Friday sale. I've had 3 amps power these subs at 2 ohms and they have never let me down! Everyone turns there head to the amount of bass these bad boys produce! I drive an 01 camaro and i have these in there own separate boxes with 500 watts rms, can anyone say free back massage? Get them, you will not regret buying this, i promise you. Pro's- Performance Value Durability Amazing Bass!!! Con's- Maybe bulky-ness? This sub was too big to fit in my old box, so i had to put them in upside down. Only problem is my system picks up engine noise, but thats not the subs fault.

HOLY ****

April 15, 2012

i bought two of these a few weeks back and have absolutely no regrets. i bought them to replace two 10s that i sold in the winter. I had no clue that they would BANG like they do. I wired them at 2 ohms. i paired them with a lanzar vector 3000.1 mono block. This amp, at 2 ohms, is rated at 2000 watts but obviously its not really true wattage so the subs are seeing around 1300 to 1400 watts. They vibrate my windshield wipers and my windows like CRAZY!!!!! I really think my trunk latch will break soon no joke. Get them you WILL NOT regret it.

Great Bang for Your Buck

September 5, 2013

I originally bought one of these Kenwood KFC-W3013PS subs with a Kenwood KAC-9105D, so I was wired at a 4 ohm load @ 500 Watts RMS. I was using a sealed box from Sonic. I soon decided to get the max out of my amp and bought another of these subs and a double sealed enclose from Sonic. Now wired at a 2 ohm load. These things pound. Considering theyíre rated for 400 Watts each and Iím pushing 900 Watts (Not bad though, thatís only 100 over Ė a pretty close match), they hold up nice. I havenít experienced any clipping. Theyíve handled everything Iíve thrown at them so far. How loud are they? Well, Iíve always liked to rate subs by things like; feeling the bass in your throat, moving your hair, tickling your nose, rattling mirrors, hurting your ears, etc. Iíve experienced all with these. My girlfriend said things in the house were rattling when I pulled up the other day. I donít know what was rattling or how bad, but I know you can hear it in the house and farther. This system does pound. Kenwood is on their game this day and age though. You really get your moneyís worth with them. I would definitely recommend these subs.

missleading sub

April 20, 2012

this sub really isn't even as good as a kicker comp. The hugh magnet cover makes the sub look kind of beefy but once you take it off there isn't much left. if you want to see what your really getting look at the oldest model. In an appropriate sealed box these subs will last but in a big ported box they will eventually bottom out and blow out.

awesome subs

July 13, 2014

Kenwood is old school but these sub's are incredible, using 800 watt amp and these things thump, would not recommend the crunch amp package deal, this so called 1800 watt amp didn't even move the sub's, had to get another and went with a Kenwood to match sub's and NOW they are crazy sounding. Kenwood did there homework on these sub's!!!

Best Bang for Your Buck!

June 26, 2014

I've had two of these now for about a year and a half, and they are just as good as the day I first installed them in my 09 Hyundai Elantra. (probably a little better than when I first installed them because they're broken in now) What's nice about these, is first, CEA-2031 compliance on such an inexpensive sub. Next, is that its one way linear excursion is 15.1 mm, which you usually expect from SPL competition subs. Lastly, is that the rms power is in fact true. all these things I said I decided to buy a third one on Monday. I just finished building a dual front baffle sealed enclosure for them that has about 4.308 cu. ft. of airspace giving them 1.436 cu. ft. of airspace each (without driver displacement) so it should put out relatively tight controlled sub-bass frequencies. Overall, this is going to be the best bang for your buck!

Good Subs

February 10, 2014

These are very decent speakers for the money. They hit hard and can handle plenty of power. They don't play the low frequncies quite like I wish they would but they are good subs. Then again, they're in a sealed box and I may not have amp set up right. Overall sound is unbeatable though.
