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.

Great subs

Good subs. Have two running at 1ohm with a 2400 watt RMS Hifonics class D amp. I am very happy with this product and would recommend these subs to anyone.

Great sub!

Recommend this to anyone with a car or small SUV who wants to have a hard hitting sub. I have my Rockford amp running this sub and it slaps really hard in my SUV.

Pressure with the right power, my 07 denali is rattling! I'd buy again

Bang Bang

This subwoofer is serious. Instantly knocked my rearview mirror off post installation, which has never happened before and I had a Kicker CVX 12" previously. Killer sub, I highly recommend.

Honestly i had just one in my pontiac g6 running with a hifonics brx 1100.1 (stock electrical) in a ported box made my back windows flex... And i could be heard from a block away coming down the street. Recommend

Kicks like a Kicker

Great sounding sub. No muddled bass, even with my ported box. Great for R&B, Classical, and even the little transition music on NPR. Highly recommended. I have this sub in a single ported Belva box that I got here at Sonic Electronix and I'm pushing it with a Rockford Fosgate P8002 with 800W RMS @ 4 Ohms.

Awesome Sub!!

I bought a ported combo and my buddy said that's an awesome sub get. And man I'm totally blow away at the deep hard pounding bass this puts out! I've got it running at 2ohms with a 500 watt Alpine amp and just can't believe how hard hitting and sweet it sounds. I'm a kicker fan for sure now!

Insane Power!

I can non-stop hit this thing as hard as it can and it never over heats! I only have one of them and it hits so hard with my pioneer amp that my rear view mirror has fallen off 4 times. I've already had two noise complaints just booming in front of businesses! I recommend this sub to anyone who really wants to rattle.

Amazing for the money!!!!

I recently bought these subs for my 2013 dodge mega cab. There in a sealed box. I went with these because of the mounting depth was right for my set up and the price was right! Let me tell you I am very very impressed. I am running them with a small jl jx1000/1. At 2ohms. All I can say is damn. I'm impressed, I was told that they were a budget sub. If that's true then it's all buying for now on. Not sure if its just the set up or what but they bang 10Xs harder then my alpine type Rs in my tundra. I would hands down recommend these!
