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.
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.
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.
800 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.
1600 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.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
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.
Santoprene Rubber
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".
96.5 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.
Hatchback Style, Angled Back
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.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
Second Depth
The second depth is used only when the box is slanted or angled. This value is the top measurement and it is measured in inches.
Wood Thickness
The thickness of the wood the enclosure is made of, measured in inches.
Number of Terminals
The number of terminals the enclosure has. Each terminal represents 1 positive and 1 negative.
Terminal Type
Spring clip terminals work best with bare wire connections with small-gauge speaker wire, or pin-type connectors.

Binding post terminals are a sturdier, more versatile type of speaker terminal. Because binding post terminals are are threaded, you can tighten them down against the wire or connector for a tight, clean connection. The most popular style of binding post terminals is known as a "5-way binding post". This type can accept bare wire, or any of the common speaker wire connectors. Binding posts with the option to be used with banana clips are even more versatile

Spring posts are a hybrid of the two. Instead of using a thread and "screwing" them tight, they use a spring to allow the wire to fit and tighten against the terminal.

Spring posts
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.

Are the subs 800 max power and 400 watts rms each?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Yes. As specified, the figures shows are the "total" handling. The drivers in the enclosure are the Kicker 40CWR102, click the link below if you want to go over the individual specs =] . Keep in mind, however, that you cannot power the drivers individually, so the individual power handling numbers are extremely relevant.

I currently have the Hifonics BRX1516.1D paired with these subs and it doesn't hit the way I'd like. It's very inconsistent at times and the mids don't sound that great. It could be the installation. Also, the remote doesn't seem to respond to either and both ends are firmly connected. I know you can't give me a solid answer without seeing/hearing my setup but any thoughts? Also, would the Hifonics BRX2000.1D be too much it I was to make an amp change?
Marc N on Dec 10, 2015
Best Answer: Hi Marc,

As you specified, it is definitely going to be hard to provide you a solid answer. However, "inconsistencies" - no matter how you define it - is often caused by improperly tuning an amplifier. Use the link below to iron that out.

However, we do have a concern about what you are trying to accomplish. "It's very inconsistent at times and the mids don't sound that great." . Subwoofers are not intended to play "mids". In fact, mid-range frequencies can sometimes damage a subwoofer. Sure, they have a frequency range that dabbles into mid-range Hz , but that does not mean it Should. Keep that in mind as you retune your setup.

As for your "upgrade", we do not suggest it. More power will not fix your issue, and the amplifier you have is the Perfect match - power wise. If you feel like you aren't getting the power you have, then you might be starving the amp of the power it needs to make the power you want. If you are using CCA wiring, a bad ground point and/or an extremely stock electrical system...well then, consider upgrading THAT instead.

I recently purchased these subs along with a Hifonics 1500W Monoblock Brutus Series Super Class D Amp and I'm worried that It won't be enough bang. I still have my Hifonics 2400W Monoblock Brutus Series Super Class D Amp that powered my 12s but I'm sure that's way too much juice. I downsized due to a new car and trunk space. Was the 1516 a good choice?
