Kicker Subwoofers – Which Sub is Right for your Sound?
There’re a lot of options to choose from when you’re looking to upgrade your less-than-stellar factory sound system. Selecting the right subwoofer is just the beginning, but one of the most important choices you’ll need to make. When it comes to bottom-end sound, Kicker Subwoofers are among the best in the industry. With so many subs available, though, 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 five outstanding Kicker components.
Kicker CompRT Loaded Enclosures
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.
Kicker VSS SubStage Subwoofer Upgrade System
For installation within the trunk of your vehicle, the Kicker VSS SubStage Subwoofer Upgrade System can be counted on for concert-worthy sound quality. And don’t worry – you’ll be able to hear the bass way up in the front seat! With a low draw on your charging system, these kits include a custom-fit enclosure with a 10” subwoofer, integrated 200-watt subwoofer amplifier and a factory-style wiring harness for a no-cut installation, leaving plenty of real estate in the trunk. Don’t forget about the helpful instructions and mount brackets to speed this process along and eliminate guesswork.
Kicker Comp Loaded Enclosures
Loud, stylish and wrapped in sleek black carpet for protection and shift-prevention while in transit, Kicker Comp Loaded Enclosures deliver that bump you crave. Boasting heavy-duty MDF construction and thick internal bracing, they’re fitted with Comb Subwoofers and feature a custom-formed port. They come in several models for compatibility with a wide range of cars and trucks.
Kicker Hideaway Powered Subwoofer Enclosure
As discreet as the name implies, Kicker Hideaway Powered Subwoofer Enclosures measure just 3.125” tall, 9.375” wide and 13.875” long. That’s not to say that they don’t pack an audio-punch, because they do – the 8” subwoofer and 150W see to that. It mounts securely to the mounting surface with Velcro straps, and a quick-connect wiring harness makes for ease of installation and removal. Compatible with both low-level factory and high-level aftermarket stereos, these bad boys are also equipped with a low-pass crossover, subsonic filter, bass boost and phase switch.
Kicker CompR Loaded Enclosures
Equipped with the brand’s best-in-class CompR subwoofer, Kicker CompR Loaded Enclosures give you the option of choosing between a 12”W single setup, and a 10”W or 12”W dual – for up to 1600W! Guaranteed to deliver the kind of bump you need, they’re vented for maximum volume output and available in a 2-ohm impedance. Carpeted in charcoal grey, each one is built into an MDF enclosure with rounded corners and internal bracing.
