Subwoofer Specifications

Subwoofer Series
Each subwoofer manufactured is part of a series. This is the name of the subwoofer's series.
CompR / CWR (Kicker)
Subwoofer Size
Refers to the diameter of the subwoofer, measured in inches.
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.
2 ohms
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.
1000 watts
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
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.
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.
Ribbed Santoprene
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".
98 dB
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).
25 - 500 Hz

Enclosure Specifications

Box Type
Represents the style of the enclosure. Be sure to purchase the appropriate enclosure type and internal volume that will be compatible with your subwoofer's recommendation.

Sealed - Sealed boxes are those that have no holes or vents in it. The only hole in a sealed box is where the subwoofer is installed. Smaller sealed boxes require more power than a larger sealed box. They provide a tight, accurate bass, while the larger sealed enclosures provide a "boomier" and louder bass.

Ported / Vented - Ported/Vented Enclosures provide an even boomier, louder bass, but less accurate then a small, sealed box. Ported enclosures typically require more airspace per sub and also less power output from an amplifier to perform correctly.

Bandpass - Bandpass enclosures make subwoofers perform efficiently, but loose. The bass is not as "boomy" as a ported enclosure nor as punchy as a sealed enclosure. Bandpass enclosures work well with lower to mid-level subwoofers.
Vented / Ported
Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
Box Style/Shape
The box style or shape refers to the actual shape of the box. Square and rectangular boxes are straight-edged boxes on all sides, whereas hatchback and truck style enclosures feature an angled front or back design that allows for installation in places short on depth such as single cab pickup trucks. You can also use such enclosures in hatchback cars or other vehicles where space is a premium. Tube and cylinder shaped boxes were made popular by Bazooka and are a great option for those looking for a nice amount of bass without sacrificing lots of space. They may even fit in locations that slim truck boxes cannot fit in. If the enclosure is vehicle specific, we encourage you to read the product description to find out which vehicles the enclosure is made for.
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
32 3/8"
Box Exterior Color
The color of the enclosure's exterior/outer finish.
Box Finish
The material used on the outside of the box. Most boxes are carpeted to prevent exterior scratches; however vinyl is popular as it can often be color-matched to a near exact look of your leather factory interior.

Clean Sound and Powerful Bass!

September 26, 2016

Paired this dual 12' enclosure comp r's with a 40kx800.1 kicker amp and this thing right out of the package produced noticable cleaner base than my type r. The type R was not in a box speced out for the subwoofer, but i noticed how on pitch the comp r 12's were compared to my other two subwoofers I have owned. Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed how much the bass has been getting lower and louder as the subs break in. The power after the break in period is phenomenal. I don't even turn my knob all the way up cause it will rattle the cars around me as well as my gf. LOl my friends really enjoy the clean sound these subwoofers produce as well.

I would recommend this subwoofer to anyone because it already comes together in a tuned ported box professionally measured so that you're getting optimum power and base accuracy out of these subs. These babies bang extremely hard and I am only one week in. Trying to keep that bass knob down a little so these things have a proper break in, but love them so far and definitely do not need anything louder lol. Was thinking about going with a kx1200.1 one of these days, but not sure I will need it cause these things love 400watts to each sub and take it like a champ. Buy these subs guys! You will not be dissapointed!

I highly recommend the kicker comp r 12inch subs, they sound amazing, clean, loud and they hit so hard it does take your breath away, I have the kicker cx 1200.1 going to them in the factory enclosure. I was using JLAUDIO 12's for awhile and these put them to shame. Take it from me, go out and purchase these babys, you won't be disappointed.

I have a Kenwood Excelon deck, NVX Amp wiring kit, and the Dual 12" Compr enclosure (1000 rms @ 2ohms). Should I get this Amp or save for the Kicker because I'm on a budget and this sale is killer?

Best Answer: The amp is great and stays cool. I've never had it shut off but I'm also not running it at it's full potential. However if you are going to run 2 subs at 1000 RMS you will need 2 of these to get the full potential out of your subs. But if that is 1000 RMS together you should have no problem with this amp. NVX is a great brand and I'm running all NVX in my truck.

Hi, I'm new to the car audio scene and I'm building my first set up for my 7th Gen Honda Civic. I recently purchased the Kicker 43DCWR122 (Dual 12" Loaded Enclosure) and I'm looking at the Kenwood Excelon KDC-X302 for a deck. Should I choose the Hifonics HFi1500D, the Hifonics Brutus BRX1516.1D, or would you have a better amp recommendation for this setup?

Best Answer: Hi, I actually sent back the Hifonics amp that I purchased because when I swapped it out for my old amp in the exact same setup, the Hifonics amp made a low buzzing noise through the speakers that my original amp did not make. Amps are much cheaper now than they were 20 years ago but they also seem much more cheaply made as well. Used to be American companies like Rockford Fosgate would design and build everything here in the U.S. now almost every thing is built in China or somewhere and quality has suffered. I would go to CNet and see if they have reviewed any good car amps lately and see what they recommend. They seem fairly unbiased.

Are the subwoofer spec 2000 watt, 1000 watt rms a piece?
Damerious C on Sep 25, 2016
Best Answer: No, they are 1000 watt rms for both. I've had these for about 4 months and they are fantastic btw.
