Workhorse Woofer

The next step in world-class bass engineering is here with the CompR Subwoofer. CompR Subwoofers combine advanced components and superior technology for a workhorse bass-maker only KICKER could create. As the next generation of CompVR, KICKER's top-selling woofer of all time, the CompR Subwoofer continues its legacy of industry-leading performance with bass impact and innovation.

CompR takes flexibility to another level with a single pair of stout, push-button wire terminals featuring a convenient impedance-selector slider for easily changing the dual-voice-coil impedance (2/8 Ohms or 1/4 Ohms, depending upon model). No additional wiring is needed for switching between series or parallel configurations.

Besides convenience, CompR delivers the deepest musical bass and is made to work perfectly with KICKER KX-Series mono amplifiers. The motor structure itself is a mechanical marvel, utilizing a large-diameter, progressive-roll spider for increased linearity and better sound with high-strength Spiralead tinsel leads woven through for maximum transfer of signal. A KICKER standard, the one-piece UniPlate, features the vented pole piece and bumped back plate that's tapered toward the edge to improve the magnetic force within the gap, optimizing that magnetic energy. The "bump" provides added voice-coil clearance, assuring precise performance. High-temp coil wire winding around the pole piece and innovative Quad Venting slots contribute to the woofers' efficient cooling attributes and durability.

CompR features an injection-molded polypropylene cone and tough Santoprene surround for ultra-rigidity and minimal distortion. The full-coverage, steel basket provides full protection of the large spider and complete motor assembly. While the basket fully protects the inner workings, its mounting depth has been minimized further to easily fit into more installations.

This product REALLY pounds. but make sure you follow the directions on which box to put this beast in. I would really recommend a 2.5 cubic feet ported box. 1.7cubic feet minumum!

These subs are awesome! They absolutely slam! I have two running at 1 ohm on my 3200W power akoustik amp and it's a great mixture.

I had 2 MTX Subs before this one but they blew so i decided to get another sub. I still wanted room to put stuff in my trunk so i got this one sub. ITS FANTASTIC!!! 10x better than my other ones and all of my friends. Not only is it loud and shakes everything, the sound is so great! What can i say, its a kicker! The only regret that i have is not getting 2 of them!

delaware basshead

I have this amp running at 1 ohm to one channel of my memphis pr 1000 and it cant handle the power with my bass boost all the way off and gain 3/4 way cranked and it sounds great in my 2.25 sq ft ported box but the sub gets really hot to the touch and smells like its burning. I was very concerned when I smelled that and turned my amp wayy down and now thats all i can smell in my jeep then this morning (second day i had sub) it was making scraping noises at low volumes maybe i just got a bad one i am not impressed.

Needs bigger enclosure

To max out the potential of the subwoofer, you need to use the recommended box. The recommended box is too big for this thin and powerful subwoofer. Should kicker have to do something that this subwoofer would kick even with the small subwoofer box, this could be an amazing budget subwoofer.

I replaced two of last year model's kicker 12"s with this guy, and he blows the other two away. I have my amp's dial at about half power, and it still moves my hair. I may not ever cut it up. Best sub I've ever owned.
