Kicker Comp Series: High Value, High Performance




The famous Kicker Comp subwoofer provides excellent Kicker bass, while sticking to a tight budget. The Comp subwoofer has been redesigned for 2010 with looks that are stunning and technology that is time tested. Some of the engineering behind this subwoofer is the extremely rigid injection molded cone. The cone has been adjusted to match the 2010 Kicker line of subwoofer, but it still keeps it traditional black and yellow design that the Comp is known for. Behind the cone, the subwoofer features 360 degree back bracing, a vented pole piece, Kickers Spiralead tinsel leads, and a sturdy steel basket. This legendary Comp subwoofer from Kicker is the perfect balance between high value and high performance!

A 8" Kicker Comp subwoofer are usually used for small applications. These woofers are perfect for vehicles that are very limited on space or when an existing 8" subwoofer is being replaced. A 8" Comp subwoofer is going to give solid bass, without taking up too much space in the vehicle. In addition to 8", this subwoofer is also available in 10", 12" and 15".

Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Comp (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
8"
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.
200 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.
100 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).
30 - 500 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".
85.6 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.
8.76 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.
Polymineral
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.
Ribbed Poly-Foam
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.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
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.
0.5 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.
1.2 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.
0.66 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.
1.66 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.
4-1/8"
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.
7-1/6"
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.

Perfect for home theater system

September 16, 2009

I bought this to replace a standard 8 inch subwoofer that was blown in my home theater system. For the money, I'm convinced this is the greatest product available. It reaches 150 rms which is great for huge bass drops playing music and fills in explosions and gun shots playing video games such as GTA4 and Call of Duty. Kicker is a good company when you need a lower end product for cheap and the durability is remarkable. All pros, no cons.

Very good subwoofer.

February 20, 2008

Ive owned this in my home theater for 7 months now, and its still kickin'. It has very nice sound quality and it gets loud, very loud for a single 8". Its rated to take 100 watts RMS, but it will take more IF you know what you are doing. I gave it 300 watts without issues, granted its in a rather small box. The specs are .8ft^3 at around 42 hrz, which I built myself. Id make it a little bigger to enhance the low end, but id advise against sealing it. I tried it in 1 cube sealed and I lost a lot of output but the low end was a little better. In movies the explosions are phenomenal. It sounds very good on rock/rap as well.

The only complaints I have is that it tends to get a little muddy at high volumes.

Bang for the buck

July 8, 2009

With limited space in my 2002 Tundra, using proper box volume and amplification, these hit extremely hard. They aren't 10's or 12's, but with no room I'll take what these Kickers can do. The mirrors shake, I can drown out 95% of anyone else's system, and the great part is no one has any idea it's even in my truck.

Great value in a car subwoofer

January 31, 2010

I had to replace the OEM subwoofer in my 2003 Toyotal Avalon. It just wasn't up to the challenge of Smashing Pumpkins and Sound Garden. The Kicker C84 seemed to be the best value for a much higher power subwoofer. Installation was a little tricky since it did not fit the Avalalon frame but i took the advice of others who posted their experience with the same model and I was able to adapt the Kicker by drilling several pilot holes and using small machine screws to attach it to the original frame. It has performed great for over 6 months now. It is tighter than the original subwoofer and stands up to some pretty high volume without breaking up.

Great little sub

October 4, 2010

I installed one of these in my best friends car in a sealed box and it sounded amazing. We recently built a ported box for it and it's twice as loud. Very tight sounding sub and lots of bang for your buck. I highly recommend getting two of these for some serious tight bass. I ride in his car a few times a week and it always impresses.

Great little sub!

January 14, 2010

I have an extended cab 1991 chevy (and for those of you who know, they have VERY little space to work with under the rear seat). I'm relatively picky and did not want a sub box just sitting exposed on the floor or on my seat. I was looking for a nicely-priced, smaller sub that had a good reputation, and this little guy fit the bill perfectly. I had to build a funky L-shaped box with a slanted top to fit under my seat without sticking out too far beyond the edge. I lined the box with what was essentially pillow stuffing, carpeted it and stuck the sub in.

What can I say, for being in a undersized box, this thing fills the cab of my truck with nice, deep bass. Obviously it's not going to bump like two twelves, But it plays nice and deep and bumps just as hard as my old 12" Pioneer that I had in my old Suburban!

Bottom line is, if you have limited space to work with and want to add some good base to your music, BUY THIS SUB!!!

What happens if I pump 200w into this? Will it take it? My 5 channel amp puts out 200w. Soundstream 5.640D.
William B on May 27, 2016
Best Answer: I don't know if it would be able to take 200w continuous. I bought the 8 inch and have a 2 channel 200w total and it's doing just fine two years later. If u plan on playing at high volumes may not be the right speaker for you.

Will this fit as a 2002 Tahoe sub replacement?
A shopper on Nov 12, 2015
Best Answer: I installed this sub as a replacement in my 2002 Tahoe.
I did have to remove the black plastic surround on the speaker.
You will also have to use self tapping screws to install it because the holes in the Tahoe do not line up with the holes in the speaker.
You should place some thin weatherstripping on the Tahoe plastic cutout where the speaker touches. This will seal the existing holes and create a firm fit without over tightening.

After those modifications the speaker fits well.
