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.
15"
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.
500 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.
250 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).
25 - 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".
90.2 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.
11.53 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
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.
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.
2.25 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.
5.0 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.
3.0 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.
4.0 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.
7-3/8"
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.
13-7/8"
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.

Kicker 07C15

December 21, 2008

These 15" subs are just the subs I've been looking for. They sound better than what I thought they would. I have not had any trouble with them at all and for the price I got them at with shipping to Japan, it was well worth it. Thanks to Sonic Electronix. I'll be ordering again soon.

Wow.

February 18, 2010

I was looking at a system and came across this comp series Kicker had. I was on a budget so just thought about getting two twelves. But then i found this monster. I have it in a Nissan Pathfinder and man does this thing slam! I have an alpine head unit with a separate sub setting which helps. It is powered by a 1000 watt Kenwood amp which is really only about 300 or so at 4 ohms. Still this thing beats hard, great deal, great sub. Kicker all the way. Its in a 3.0 Cubic foot ported box so it hits low.

now Im looking for a new vehicle and i have to make sure to get one that i can fit this 15in because I cant live without it.

Best sub i ever had

July 25, 2009

i hooked up 1 out of the 2 i bought to a zx750.1 and right away it was my favorite system i had in my corolla. i was going to use the other one for a back up in case this one ever blew but my friend wanted to buy it so i sold it to him and he loves it too. the only thing is if i have my back seats up it doesnt hit that hard at all so i have to put atleast one seat down and it bangs. all the lows and highs that this sub plays sounds good. next pay check im buying another one for the corolla!

Loud Sub.

July 16, 2007

I had two of these in a oversized, ported box in my Ford Explorer. They are very loud, but don't have very deep of bass. Just make sure that the box is the right size. I was running them off of a 1000 watt Sony Xplod that was briged to a two ohm load and they sounded good because they don't need much power.

Must Buy!

March 3, 2010

Pro: Using 2 of these in a ported box in the back of my 00' Dodge Dakota Quad Cab with an MTX Audio JackHammer JH600 and lemme tell ya, its INSANE. Your only looking at a system thats like $300 - $400 if you have what I do, its cheap, and bumps great. Can't see straight, mirror falls down, makes the neighbors angry, can't drink pop in my truck because it shakes it up and gets flat, and I highly advise getting these subs.

Con: Doesn't cook, clean, or do laundry.

excellent value@any price point

December 19, 2009

The C154 sub is deceiving to say the least. The sub transitions effortlessly from the tight bass drum, all the way down to a synthesized subsonic note. I have had about every sub known to man and the performance of such an inexpensive sub is mind boggling. Its hard to imagine a sub at this price could perform (and sound)like the KICKER does. OH dont forget with enough power and a twist of the knob this budget sub WILL be more than happy to start showing a few more rattles in your ride you didnt know you had. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR A BUDGET SUB!!!!!

Man I own 5 of the Kicker comp 15-inch sub woofers and I have 4 hooked up to a Memphis 1000d...need I say more? What a beautiful setup. I highly recommend these subs as the price, the sound and longevity is crazy. They will beat harrrrd. I bought my first pair in 1995 or 96 never will i buy any other sub.

Great value sub

April 21, 2010

This sub sounds great. For under $100, you can really get a lot of sound pressure from this sub with minimal wattage. I'm currently in a 0-600w RMS class and didn't want to move up. The only way to maximize my surface area and power was to use 15s. Obviously most 15s need alot of power to perform, but not these. I own a set of the Comp 8s and now a 15. Whether you're going for sound quality or numeric pressure on a budget, these subs are worth every penny.

March 29, 2010

I had 4 of these monsters in a sealed box in the trunk of a 02 impala powered by a MTX elite amp and let me tell you they are no joke. They would flex the whole roof and side of my car! Loved them up until a i got a ticket for disturbing the peace lol. but if u want bang for your buck look no further cause this sub is beast and for the price you cant say no.
