CompRT 12" Loaded Subwoofer Enclosure

The Kicker CompRT Thin Profile 12-Inch Subwoofer Enclosure arrives Wired, Loaded and Ready to Go with a 12" Shallow-Mount CompRT set to a 2-ohm final impedance at the terminal. This makes is perfect for getting the best output out of a matching amplifier. Although the subwoofer can be driven with as little as 100w RMS, the recommended power range is between 100 - 500 watts RMS. This makes it a perfect match for either the Kicker DXA500.1 (41DXA500.1)or Kicker KX400.1 (40KX400.1). Need a bit more power than that? Add a second Kicker TCompRT12 and compliment the two subwoofer setup with an amplifier like the Kicker CXA18001 (43CXA18001)!

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Comp-RT / CRT (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
500 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.
800 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.
800 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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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
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".
87.1 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
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

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.
13-1/4"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
21-1/2"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
6-3/4"
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.
3-9/16"
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Charcoal
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.

Kicker 12 slim box

January 31, 2014

I have this powered by a Boss DST3000D amp at 2ohms behind the seat in a single cab '95 ford truck. The sub's not broke in yet and it still hits hard and deep. It doesn't bring the super lows like some bigger box setups but is still better than I expected for a shallow box. Before this sub I had two Orion 12's in a shallow box that got stolen from my truck. The single Kicker blows them away.
Highly recommend if you need some boom for a small space.

I put this sub in my 92 c1500 reg cab behind the seat. Its a tight fit but it sounds great. It not a competition sub but it also desnt cost 500 dollars. It give u good low clean base with good frequency responce I was extremely shock at how much thump came out of this little sub. Any way for a tight space awsome value cant go wrong.

This box is great it's got just enough air volume to play clean bass in any genre really. I listen to all kinda of music and this sub never fails to impress me, I'm using a Boss, phantom 1500.1 and it seems to run it just fine.

Very Niiice

July 5, 2016

I got this to replace a Kicker Comp R in a ported box, which obviously took too much space in my 14 F150 [supercrew] backseat. I was running an 1800w amp at 1ohm and the ported box would massage my back like a shiatsu. This one is not quite on that level, but still comparable, plus it hides under the seat with my amp and capacitor perfectly. Get this, you won't regret it.

Trust your guy on delivery, they are overly optomistic

July 4, 2016

Had setup to buy at local kicker dealer (who by the way was 100 higher on the speaker and told me I was getting a refurb unit until I gave them the website where it says new and they are an authorized kicker seller) They still wouldn't match price so I went with Sonic. Great packaging (box inside a box). Arrived 3 days later then I was told over the phone so had to reschedule install which sucked but best price on the net.

Will this fit my 2008 tacoma four door?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
Best Answer: I have a 2013 F150 regular cab and it fits behind the passenger seat with ease. The sub is probably six inches deep at the bottom so it is very slim. So, I don't know how much space you have in your truck, but this sub will fit in any space you have in your Tacoma and will completely blow your mind. Trust me it's worth the buy.
