There’re a lot of options to choose from when you’re looking to upgrade your less-than-stellar factory sound system.

When it comes to bottom-end sound, Kicker Subwoofers are among the best in the industry. With six popular Kicker Subs available, how do you know which one will pump out the sound you want?
We’ve researched, read through countless Kicker Sub reviews and given them a test in order to bring you the breakdown on each Kicker Subwoofer.
Kicker Solo-Baric L7
The square-sub design of Kicker Solo Baric L7 Subs offers more surface area than a conventional round woofer, which means it’s capable of delivering more boom-inducing decibels. Engineered for reliable performance and accurate response, Kicker L7 Subs feature an advanced, injection-molded cone and a Santoprene surround. Dual voice coils handle intense heat and power levels without burning out, no matter how long you bump. Pick up popular size subs like a Kicker L7 10” or Kicker Solo Baric L7 12” for the extra depth you need in your ride. Kicker L7 Subwoofers come in both 2- or 4-Ohm options and are compatible with both sealed- or vented-box applications.
The Kicker CompVX Sub features all the same technology and components of the square-sub Solo-Baric L7, packaged in the more popular circular style. The state-of-the-art Kicker CompVX Subwoofer delivers powerful, deep bass through high-temp dual voice coils that are capable of handling huge power and extreme temps without burning out. For accurate sound at any volume, the one-piece cone with total back bracing and ribbed Santoprene surround provide an ultra-rigid frame that resists flexing for any size speaker, including Kicker Comp VX 15” and Kicker CompVX 12”. CompVX Subwoofers come in 2- or 4-Ohm DVC options and are compatible with sealed- or vented-box applications.
The hard-working Kicker Comp R Subwoofer is packed with cutting-edge components and technology that ensure you get the deepest musical bass possible. Kicker Comp R Subs feature a single pair of push-button wire terminals with a built-in switch to easily change the dual voice coil impedance – 2/8 Ohms or 1/4 Ohms, depending on the model. One of the most efficient, durable and accurate subs on the market, Kicker CompR Subs boast an impressive motor structure, a large progressive-roll spider and a bumped back plate. Pair your Kicker Comp R 12” or Kicker Comp R 10” sub with a Kicker KX-series mono amp to push the best bass.
Designed specifically for compact cars, pickups and even motorcycle saddlebags, shallow-mount Kicker CompRT Subwoofers deliver full-sized bass without leaving much of a footprint. Despite its small size, the Kicker RT Sub is available in both 1- or 2-Ohm dual voice coils and are ideally paired with a Kicker KX-series mono amp. An inverted-bumped back plate and bumped top plate allow for full voice-coil clearance and an outstanding amount of bass in such a limited area. The injection-molded polypropylene cone and Santroprene surround pair up for ultra-rigidity and minimal distortion. Install Kicker Comp RT 12” or Kicker Comp RT 10”subs and keep your valuable trunk space.
The Kicker Comp S Subwoofer was designed to provide powerful dimension to your sound system without busting your budget. Kicker Comp S subs deliver hard-hitting bass in both 2- or 4-Ohm single voice coil impedances, striking the perfect balance between high-value and high-performance. These durable Kicker Subs are equipped with a lightweight, injection-molded polypropylene cone and ribbed polyurethane surround to eliminate flex and distortion. With a full-coverage, steel basket that has a shallower design than most, to fit a wide range of applications, Kicker CompS 12” and Kicker CompS 10” subs work perfectly in both sealed and vented enclosures or free-air applications.
With world-class power and durability, the Kicker CompD Woofer is equipped to deliver a heart-thumping amount of bass. Affordable Kicker Comp D Subs provide your ride powerful sound at a price that leaves some cash left over for a matching amp. Available in 2- or 4-Ohm DVC, the Kicker Comp D Subwoofer is extremely versatile with wiring capabilities for series, parallel or stereo sound and easy impedance-matching with CX-series amps.
