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.
10"
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.
1000 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.
300 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
Voice Coil Diameter
Diameter of voice coil, usually measured in inches.
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).
39 - 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".
82 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.
5.3 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
Magnet Structure
Defines the overall structure of the subwoofers magnet.
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.
.65 cubic feet
Optimum Sealed Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal sealed box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in 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.
1.00 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.
1.00 cubic feet
Optimum Ported Box Volume
This value indicates the ideal ported box volume that the manufacturer recommends for the subwoofer. The volume is typically displayed in 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.
1.50 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.
5"
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.
9-1/4"
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.

No

Electromechanical Parameters

Free-Air Resonance (Fs)
The free-air resonance frequency of the subwoofer, measured in Hz. At this frequency the weight of the moving parts is perfectly balanced with the subwoofers suspension system.
Equivalent Compliance (Vas)
This is the amount of air that has the same stiffness as the subwoofers suspension. The greater the rating, the lower the stiffness and larger recommended enclosure. It is measured in Liters.
Total Speaker Q Value (Qts)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including all dimensionless losses. Essentially, a high Qts value (closer to 1.0) means the subwoofer is great for sealed enclosures and a low Qts value (closer to 0) means the woofer is great in vented enclosures. A Qts of around 0.45 means the woofer will work decently in either enclosure type.
Electrical Q Value (Qes)
The subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including electrical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. The unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Electrical Resistance of Voice Coil (Re)
Amount of DC resistance of the subwoofer when measured with an ohm meter. Typically, this will read less than the impedance rating of the subwoofer.
Mechanical Q Value (Qms)
This is the subwoofers relative damping (Q) at the resonance frequency (Fs), including mechanical losses. Also called the mechanical damping of the subwoofer. This unitless measurement usually varies from 0.5 10.
Efficiency Bandwidth Product (EBP)
This number represents the trade off between having an efficient woofer and one with a wide bandwidth. To calculate this number, take the Fs and divide it by the Qes. If the number is below 50, the woofer is designed for a sealed enclosure only. If it's between 50-100 it can be used in either. Lastly, if it's greater than 100 it's designed for vented enclosures.

Kenwood speaker

October 22, 2014

I bought this sub-woofer as a replacement for a Kenwood 100 W powered home sub-woofer. I liked the idea that the mounting holes all lined-up and the specs seemed to match the home unit even though the speaker was made for car use. I considered other brands (which I'm sure would have been OK too) but decided to stick with the same brand as the unit. So far it seems to be working just fine. It looks well-made and sounds great. And the price and service at Sonic was outstanding.

I actually bought this sub as a temporary replacement to an old sub that needed to be repaired, but after trying it, I decided to use it for a primary speaker. I really didn't expect it to put out as good of sound as it did. As far as a good sounding entry level sub, I would purchase this sub again anytime.

I installed a pair of these in a custom made sealed enclosure (1.3 cubic feet) under the rear bench in a Pickup Truck. Powered by a Crunch PZA 1400.2 that can deliver aprox 350 watts RMS at 4ohm to each sub (level set to about half way) They pound hard for being on the small side of the sub size range. I am pleased. I am hoping they hold up long term, time will tell. They look sharp.

September 10, 2014

Have an 08 Tacoma Quad cab and was limited on space for a sub. Got a custom box from TacoTunes made to fit behind the rear seat. Have a Kenwood KDC655u head unit, MB Quart RA640.4 quad amp, and an MB Quart QA500.1 mono block amp. Front and rear speakers are MB Quart PVM216 components and the sub WAS an MB Quart RWM254 shallow mount 10" sub. The system sounded really good once tuned but the sub left me wanting better low end. The custom box is a sealed enclosure and I thought this was about as good as it was going to get. Don't get me wrong, it still sounded better than most and the sub had good tight bass but I could tell from previous systems that it was lacking. Finally blew the damn thing and was going to replace it when a friend of mine told me about this little sub. He had two of them in his Silverado and they hit really hard in his system but I had my doubts due to my much smaller box and the fact that it was sealed instead of ported. But due to the price and specs I took a chance and bought one. My enclosure has a max top mount depth of 5.6"s and 6.0 cubic feet of volume. This sub requires 5" of depth to mount and .65 cubic feet of volume in a sealed enclosure. Had to mount it upside down but it fit great. Hooked it up and WOW. Don't know if it's due to the cone being concave as opposed to the shallow mount being flat but this this sounded much better right from the get go. Set the amp to supply 200 watts initially but after about a month of break in maxed it out to 250. Again, WOW. The bottom end I was missing is there and truth be told I had to lower the gain on the amp because this little boomer was too loud. It hits hard, and it reproduces the lows very well. Not boomy, just tight and low. Finally retuned the entire system and everyone is really impressed at the sound quality of the system. And no you can't hear me coming from a block away but if I'm driving by your house you'll definitely hear me (or should I say feel me). From smooth jazz to rock this little sub can handle it all. Don't really do hiphop music but I put some Nelly on there and I thought the windows were going to pop. Can't say enough about this little sub. If you need a good inexpensive sub that is easily worth twice what it sells for then this is it. Highly recommend it. Only wish I had room for another one.

Good for shallow mount option

September 28, 2012

I used these under the seats in my Titan and they sound very good for the $. They have a fairly shallow mount and are a way better option than paying extra for the subs they charge a premium for because they are designed as a shallow mount.

Just built a custom box for three of these things across the back of my 2009 ford ranger extended cab and im shocked. I took my alpine type r 15 out to put these in and have no regrets, these tens put the single 15 to shame. I'm running them all through one 1050 watt rms mono block amp and its the perfect amount of power for all three at 50% gain. I would highly recomend these to anybody who wants good clean bass and lots of it. Very impressive.

Great for the money!

January 8, 2014

This speaker turned out to be perfect for what I was looking for. So far it has held up great. At four ohms the Kenwood amp I'm using is pushing it at 300 watts in a King Cab Nissan Frontier. In a single 10" sealed enclosure it takes up less room than the single 12" I was using previously. The 10" is much tighter and works with the kind of music I listen to much better. Overall it cleaned up my sound, and takes up less space!

Great price, Great sound!

April 25, 2013

Bought the Kenwood to replace a 12 year old Fosgate He2 rated at 400rms. Put the kenwood in a 1.0cf ported enclosure. The truth, this thing sounds amazingly clean and loud. I hear no difference compared to the Fosgate. The fosgate was close to $200 since it was one of fosgates top subs back in the day. The kenwood is only $49 which makes it a huge bang for buck.
BTW, my kenwood is being fed close to 400w rms and it hasn't been broken in yet. I'm not playing it too loud right now since I've only had it for two days. So, another couple of weeks and this will sound even sweeter!
I highly recommend this sub vs other brands that cost ten or twenty dollars more at about the same rms rating.
Get two, put them in a ported box and you'll be amazed.

January 30, 2012

Well I have blown three of these subs and i tell you i am using correct power. I bought mine from b**t buy and they said that these replacement i got is going to be discontinued because of how many people are having issues with them. Listen to me if you are looking for a good cheap woofer go for an Infinity Reference 1060W. They sell them on Sonic they have a 91db sensitivity unlike the Kenwood that has 300rms and 82 db sensitivity its all about power, xmax, and sensitivity that rules the game.

Great sub for the price. very good at hitting lows that a 10 can hit. db's aren't supppper high so its not as loud as im wanting in a trunk but for a single cab truck it worked phenomenally

I am replacing a Kenwood speaker. I liked the specs on this and the materials. I had looked at numerous other brands, but decided to stay with the Kenwood in the end.

what size amp should i use for 2 Kenwood KFC-W2513PS 10 inch subs?
shawn w on Dec 8, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Shawn,

Two Kenwood KFC-W2513PS [Single-4ohm, 300w RMS] will be asking for ~600w RMS @2ohms. The Hifonics X1100.1D at 700w RMS @2ohms is a great example.

This sub is on my list of possible options. Would this be a good choice for a single ported enclosure and what cost affective amp would you recommend to only run one of these?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
Best Answer: My experience would probably not be beneficial to you because of the application. I bought this sub as a replacement for a Kenwood sub-woofer speaker in a home sub-woofer, not a car unit. It is a powered, ported, 100 watt unit. I looked at several brands of speakers, compared specs as to frequency range, ohms, construction, materials and enclosure size as well as price. In the end, I ended up picking the Kenwood because it was the same brand and the mounting holes all matched. I thought it best to stick with the same brand, but I'm sure others would have worked. Having said all that, I was not disappointed. The speaker fit perfectly and sounds great. I don't crank it up too much, but rather use it to enhance the bass for music and movies. It is paired with Bose front speakers and works very well. In my experience, I think you would do well with the Kenwood no matter the application. Hope that helps.
