Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
Performance (Kenwood)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
12"
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.
2000 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.
400 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).
27 - 300 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".
82 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.
7.6 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.

Square
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.
Polypropylene
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.
Rubber

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
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.
1.25 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.
2 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.
5-3/16"
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.
10-15/16"

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.
20.1 Hz
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.
153.9 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.

Very good deal

October 14, 2015

I bought this sub because I have a ported box at about the recommended specs and it pounds! Great deal for $40, although the only downside is that the cut out for it is a pain in the ass, it's not like a normal 12". I have about 400 watts rms going to it, sometimes I'm worried I push it too hard but it's been rattling everything in my car for about 3 months now and the bass is still clean. Easy to hook up to a lil4 ohm amp!

Great Quality Sub, Bang for Your Buck

March 6, 2016

Installed this in my 2007 Saturn Ion. Wired to a 500 Watt amp and bumps very hard, has a great range of sound. I still only have my volume for my sub set to about 50% to 75% and never go any louder.
The low frequency range is very impressive, I have no complaints. The side mount supports are flexible and very tough, made installation very easy when putting into a single 12" box. Would definitely recommend this especially for the price. The 2000 watt peak allows this sub to fulfill a very wide range of applications.

Bought 2, only used 1, works amazing!

January 8, 2016

I've been buying Kenwood products since I was 19. My first pair of Kenwood subs were the KFC-W3012 in a sealed box. Over a year I broke the spider on them, never was sure if it was manufacture defect or me being a dumb teenager and not running them correctly. After breaking the spider, bought the same model subs and still have them today and love them. Spider is still in contact, gasket was a little worn but silicone fixed that, but let me tell you they hit hard and are loud. I've had kicker comps, JL W3's and there is a big difference between all. Always went back to my Kenwood's though.

Kicker's - sounded muddy
JL's - clear, couldn't get the punch I wanted
Kenwood's - in between the 2

To get to the point with the Kenwood KFC-W3016PS subs, I must say for only using 1 it sounds pretty good so far. I'm not a big fan of ported boxes especially when it's moldy and smells like cat pee. My friend gave me one he had sitting in his barn. I wasn't ready to drop money on a nice box unless I was getting the sound I wanted. Well with this one Kenwood KFC-W3016PS in a ported box in my 1990 Accord Sedan it's pretty loud. I would have to say it's as loud as my other 2 Kenwoods when I had them in my Sedan. Although the clarity doesn't sound as good as my other 2 Kenwood's but that could be due to them being a seal box. Over all I bought 2 of these Kenwood KFC-W3016PS just in case I was looking for more punch. I ended up giving the other one to my sister for a Christmas Gift. I felt like just 1 was enough for my car. This Kenwood sub is just awesome!

Now don't go buying one of these subs based off my comment, research around, read more comments and figure out what "YOU" want. The sound all depends on your Vehicle, and hardware you are running. Like I said, my old Kenwood's sound a lot better but they are in my 1991 Accord Wagon, it's an open cab and they are in a seal box. I'm sure if I switched the new sub in my wagon the sound would be different and could be better. Put a lot of thought into what you are going to buy before you jump into buying your sub or even a setup.
