Kicker's CompVR Subwoofers
Ready for a kick in the chest? Look no further!

Kicker CompVR CVR124

If you're looking for wimpy subs, you've come to the wrong place. Kicker's CompVR Series subwoofers are nothing but pure, high-quality low-end mayhem.


But seriously, these subwoofers are built to live up to the brand's name. Combining proven technology, rugged materials and more than 40 years of speaker design experience, Kicker's CompVR series reflects some of the best performance of the company's history.

Available in 4- and 2-ohm versions across the board, the CompVR subwoofers are built for all kinds of systems. With dual voice coils, you can set up your subs for any application, whether you're just jamming tunes on the way to work or shooting for first place at a competition.

CompVR CVR124

As a member of the CompVR family, the CVR124 offers all of the series' features. The 12" sub has a peak power handling of 800 watts, with the power RMS coming in at 400 watts. Its dual 4-ohm voice coils come with an added bonus to help expedite installation, spring-loaded wire terminals.

But along with all that, they include form with function. Get a Kicker subwoofer grille to dress up and protect your investment.

Built to Kick

CompVR Subwoofers

Kicker's proprietary cone technology, SoloKon, does a lot more than look pretty. The injection-molded cone ensures a rigid surface that helps eliminate distortion. The red stitching stands out, but joins the cone and the back brace into a single system. A stamped steel basket reduces vibration, giving you mean bass with quality sound.

But the CompVR also comes with a pedigree of reliability. Perimeter venting and UniPlate technology keeps your subs cooler and running longer.

These are the subs you're looking for. Get at least one of the Kicker CompVR subwoofers at Sonic Electronix. Let everyone around you feel the thump and put these in your cart.

They are called Kicker's for a reason.

I bought these due to my previous sub blowing out (because they got old). At first I felt disappointed with these subs,my previous sub were "smooth" "rounded". When I got these they were very sharp on the frequency they hit hardest on (like literally an upside-down V shape response), wasn't expecting that, you might say it was "kicking" at the frequency. But after tinkering with my head unit and amp settings, They were really good! They are as tight as can be (previous sub was a little loose).

I am very happy with what I got. These subs will also last you a lifetime, I know i'm exaggerating haha but seriously for the price, these are the best built subs on the market! So to those who buy these or plan to:

1. You will probably not like the sound right away
2. You gotta tweak your settings if you want it to sound "smooth"
3. Your getting a sub that will last you a long time
4. These are indeed loud, very

For those of you wondering about bass, its not a problem, it will shake your car with a 1000W amp with no issue, also gives great back massages. It hits low very nicely however, its really tight, with my previous subs, I had an air flow-like feel when the subs hit super low and these don't seem to do that, maybe i'm missing something lol thought I would give you a heads up.

My previous subs were two: Audiobahn AW1200J

Nice subs!

Bought these for my sons first system. Take a little bit to break in, but hit pretty hard and are a great value...

Kicker Doesn't Disappoint!!

I've loved the Comp VRs for about 15 years. They have great low-end bass and they are very affordable. I've bought more expensive subs looking for something better though the years and I always come back for the Kicker Comp VR.

Booming KIcker

I have a pair of these 12 subs from 2016 to 2020 (present) now and they sound just as good as when I first got these subs (enclosed in a 1.25 cu sealed box). From day 1, well maybe day 5 because of the break-in period, the BASS that comes out of these subs are still BOOMING using my 300.1 kicker amp. I would rather use a much larger amp, but my red-black wires/fuse limits me from upgrading. So I can only imagine how much better these subs would BOOM with a bigger amp.
