Kicker CompRT8 TCWRT82 (40TCWRT82) 600W Max Ultra Compact Single 8


Kicker TCWRT82 (40TCWRT82)
600W Max Ultra Compact Single 8" CompRT Loaded Subwoofer Enclosure


The Kicker CompRT8 Thin Profile, Shallow Mount 8-inch Subwoofer Enclosure is loaded with a CompRT8 Dual-1ohm Subwoofer Driver, wrapped with Automotive-grade carpet and loaded with a single 2-ohm final impedance terminal.

Take all the ground-breaking technology from the shallow-mount CompRT woofer and combine it with a rugged KICKER-built MDF subwoofer box wrapped with dense gray automotive-grade carpeting. The diminutive enclosure is just over five inches deep and 16 inches long - capable of being placed under a seat or behind a bench. The perfect solution for the driver who needs bass but don’t have room for a bog box.

The CompRT 8-Inch Enclosure works best with 300 watts of recommended continuous power, but works well within 100 - 300 watts. Wire TWO in Series - to a 4ohm load - or in Parallel - to a 1ohm load - for up to a 600 watt RMS System!

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.
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.
Dual
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.
1 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.
300 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.
300 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.
600 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.
600 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".
84.8 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).
30 - 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.
16-1/8"
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
9"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
4-3/8"
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.
5-3/8"
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.

Great Sound For A Compact Sub

October 9, 2016

I have been a Kicker fan for years. Was looking around for an 8" sub replacement for my ported enclosure of my Chevy S10. Instead of buying 2 new 8" subs, I researched this Kicker CompRT subwoofer 8" slim enclosure/sealed box; it pushes great sound/bass hits even with the 600W/300W/2ohm version. I now have a lot more space in the back of my bench seat than with the previous sub box. What a difference this upgrade has made!👍👍

Rocking little sub

February 16, 2016

I like rock music, but from time to time listen to rap. I knew an 8" would work well for my rock but was a bit skeptical about the rap music, because of the lack of surface area. I figured I'd buy two of these like the specs recommended to make up for this problem. I got it spot on! Go Me! I have two of these, one each behind the seats of my Mustang. It's a tight fit, but I made it work. The sound is accurate and bassy enough for me, especially sense it is in the same cabin as me. These two little guys really impressed me.

Love it!!

December 5, 2015

I love this because is compact wich was important because my 1972 chevy pickup didnt have much room for duel 12 inch JL Audio subs so i had to find a compact sub. it was nice because it fit perfectly under the drivers seat. I listen to Dirty Bass by far east movement and you can feel the air vibrate. Might buy another if I get a deal on it :)

Best Answer: Hello,

Unfortunately, we do not have your vehicle's dimensions, so we cannot answer your question. We suggest taking the dimensions of the product - available on the product page - and comparing them to measurements you can take in your truck.

I am wondering about the dimensions of this item. It is displayed laying sideways. So, which is the height 16 1/8 or 9 and when it tapers from 4 3/8 to 5 3/8 is that from the height of 9 or 16 1/8? I am concerned as to how it will fit where I need it to.
Chris D on May 31, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Chris,

The Height, Length and Width is a matter of perspective, so we aren't going to answer the first part because it doesn't really have an answer, but let us know if the following makes sense.

The longest portion is obviously going to be 16-1/8. As such, by looking at the Main picture -> http://goo.gl/HOkbkv <- That would left to right. The taper (again, from looking at the main picture) Starts on the left (4-3/8) to Right (5-3/8)
