Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
eXcelon (Kenwood)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
10"
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.
1000 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
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).
35 - 800 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 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.
7.5 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.
Glass Carbon Fiber
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.
Butyl Rubber
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.
No
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.
0.6 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.
0.6 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.
0.6 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.
0.6 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.
3-3/8"
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.
9-1/8"
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.

I got two of these for a shallow box that i have under the back seat of my 1997 F150 extended cab about 6 months back. Everybody who reviews stuff is always saying crap like "I bought these yesterday and they work great!" Well they better work great because they are brand new. Well i have used these for the full 6 months and they are still working like new, and i have been bumping all the freaking time. They deliver incredible thump for being 10s. i was worried that they wouldent sound good because of the limited room in my box but they hit. would recomend these to anyone who has limited space but still want some decent sound.

I hooked it up to my rockford fosgate T1000bd1 amp it lasted maybe a week until the cone failed. Yea I know my fault but it did last for being hooked up to a amp that powerful! I also had it hooked up to the kenwood KAC1502S sounded great on that amp too. Now I'm getting cerwin vega VMAX102.

Perfect subs!

October 3, 2011

i have had my 2004 nissan frontier for a while and i have had more than three systems in it. I have very very very limited space. At first i had 2 ten inch kenwoods in a regular sized ported box. They sounded amazing but my entire backseat was taken.. this bothered me soo i tried to fit something behind the seat and the only think i could find that would fit was a small 8 inch kicker enclosure that looked like a shoe box... i love spl soo this sucked. now i have 2 of these in a professionally fitted box for behind my back seat and it simply pounds it is the perfect fit for the cab size of the truck. Perfect amount of bass

i replaced my pioneer shallow mounts for two of these and hooked them up to a mtx 600xd at 2ohms...these things hit hard. the sound is clean and they never bottom out on lows....compared to my pioneers these things provide a full sounding bass that never gets distorted...i could hear a significant difference in the performance....and they rattle your seats a lot...good price good buy good bass

Great Product

July 10, 2008

After extensive reviewing on shallow subwoofers, this is by far the best priced shallow mount woofer. On top of that it is the second best shallow subwoofer out there. After listening to Pioneers/Premiers, Fosgate, Sony Xplod, and JL Audios, this is by far the best value subwoofer for the dollar. It hits harder and smoother than all those listed above, exception to the JL's new slim line which is by far the superior product - and by far the largest priced item for a shallow subwoofer. Unfortunately it does not come in a 10" diameter. This subwoofer is a very well constructed product and is one of the top of the Kenwoods line. Unfortunately I am not a fan of their component speakers or I would have a Excelon system all lined up. Their Excelon Subwoofers and Digital Amps are their best products out.

What size amp should I get for this sub??
A shopper on Oct 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

The KFC-XW1000F, being a Single 4ohm Subwoofer, is asking for ~250w RMS @ 4ohms. The Kenwood X500-1 is the 'matching' amp for this sub, but below are a couple of other options;

Kenwood X500-1
