Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
CompR / CWR (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
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.
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
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.
500 watts
Total RMS Power Handling
This is the total RMS power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total RMS power handling for all of the subs combined.

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 giving your subwoofer(s) 75% - 90% of the recommended RMS rating.
1000 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.
1000 watts
Total Peak Power Handling
This is the Total Peak Power handling of all the subwoofers included in the package or enclosure.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.

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.
2000 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.
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
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".
86.9 dB
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 - 500 Hz

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.
Vented / Ported
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
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.
Hatchback Style, Angled Back
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
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.
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
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.
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.

Great Subs!

April 21, 2014

I installed these things with a new head unit (Pretty good for a 16 year old who had no previous experience in car audio) in my 07 4runner and let me tell you, when I say they slam, I MEAN THEY SLAM. When I have them running at full 1600rms they make my mirrors useless! They are so clean for a dual ported enclosure imho. My friend has a JL 13w7 and people say mine gets louder and sounds better when its on normal volume. I have them running off a Hifonics ZRX3200.1D Zeus and you can hear them from probably 3/4 a mile away in the city. They are freakin amazing!!! Great buy!!!

Kicker CompR's ROCK!!

May 23, 2014

I'm currently playing these subs on a 2300.1 hifonics and let me tell you these subs are beast!!! I currently owned the rockford dual P2 12 and they were good but when i really pressured them they caught a little temperature and scared me. These babies just keep begging for more. If you can swallow a glass a water with these turnt up your good! Honestly the best subs I've ever own and at this price you should have already added it to your cart. Kicker CompR 12 A++.

All Day Knocken.

July 6, 2013

Kicker stepped their game up on these. Ive had 12" CVR before and now with these Comp R's they are knocken. I only have a 250 watt amp hooked up to them just waiting for the 2000 watt amp to come in to give them 1000 watts and really see what they can do. I will write another post when the new amp is in. Oh yeah Almost got the Alpine Type Rs but KICKERS have always been my Style of Subs.

Living Loud!!!

December 9, 2013

Here's my setup....Kicker DCWR122, Alpine MRP M1000, Alpine CDA 9825 & Cadence 0 awg wiring kit...Big 3. Sits in the truck of 99 Grand Marquis. Out of the box these subs POUND HARD!!! The enclosure is well made and very heavy. Only putting about 8-900 watts to it. Don't beleive that Alpine M1000 is putting out a true 1000 Watts @14v but I could be wrong. Only had set up for a week so I will get back with u if there is an increase in bass after breakin.
Compared to my other setup... 2 CVX 12 in ported Avalanche midgate enclosure powered with the new Kicker CX1200.1. It slams hard. Those new compr's are close are maybe better. Time will tell.

eric p on Aug 16, 2014
If I want to can i rewire the subs to 1 ohm total. Are the subs 2 ohm subs is what i am asking. ?
Tyler K on Oct 1, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Tyler,

No. It is physically impossible (without modifications) . The subs loaded into the enclosure are the Kicker 40CWR122 - Dual-2ohm . This means the subs are wired internally in Series/Parallel to a 2ohm final load. Theoretically, your only other options are: [Series = 8ohms] or [Parallel = 0.5ohms.] . Neither of which sound very practical.

Best Answer: Hello Donandavi,

There are so many possible options, that you may be better off sending your inquiry into sales@sonicelectronix , so that you can have a proper conversation. Nevertheless, here is an example of a proper setup for the DCWR122 (I am not implying its the 'Best' or you 'Have' to go with it).

what size amp is the best to use for kicker 40dcwr122 dual 12 subs ?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

The matching amp is the Kicker DXA1000.1; However, what you seek is an amp that is providing ~800w-1000w RMS @2ohms . Proper examples of this is the MB Quart RA1500.1 , Kenwood KAC-9106D , and JBL GTO-1001EZ .

how do i hook my 2 channel amp speaker wires to the 1 sub box connection?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,


A 2-Channel amp is NOT a proper amp for this enclosure! You WILL Harm your amp, and will possible harm the subwoofer. This is considered automatic Warranty Void if you attempt this!

Bridging an amp will obligate the impedance to being 4ohms stable; The enclosure is internally wired to 2ohms, which if obviously Lower than 4ohms. A proper amp will be a MONOBLOCK that is providing ~1200-1600w RMS @2ohms.

Will this amp be ok powering dual 12in kicker compRs? The subs are rated at 1600 watts rms @ 2 ohms and are in a ported box. I know clipping can be caused by under powering a sub, but does 200 watts really matter?

Best Answer: Hello Liam,

In THIS particular case, the ~200w difference is Not a bit concern. However, it is VERY important that you do not push the system beyond its limits. THAT is where "underpowering" is a problem. You risk SENDING a clipping signal if you overdrive the amp and/or do not have tuned properly. Setting the Gain "Half Way" is not a proper setting, so please do your homework on this or have a professional tune the amp.
