Shallow Mounting Depth With Hard-Hitting Bass Makes Kicker CompVT Subwoofer One Of A Kind
Kicker introduced a true high-performance subwoofer with a reduced mounting depth a few years back, and it was met with immediate success. Who wouldn’t want a subwoofer that pounds insanely from the slimmest locations? The next generation of Kicker CompVT Subwoofer slides into door panels and other tight fits in 2010.
Four options are available that deliver real Kicker bass and take serious power. The 12-inch CVT12 and 10-inch CVT10 easily handle 400 watts RMS (800w peak) without hesitation, and if you want to go even smaller, an 8- or 6.5-inch option hammers from the slimmest locations.
Precise Kicker engineering allows the CompVT to pound with limited space. A special four-layer voice coil provides the CompVT the ability to work with serious amounts of power without the bulk. The woofer’s stiff, injection-molded, modified-spoke cone is shaped to provide maximum excursion from a slender basket, allowing the ideal amount of flex for better strength and durability.
Space-saving features make for woofers with amazing mounting depths of less than 4-1/2 inches! A ventless, solid-pole design allows the CompVT to be mounted directly against the rear wall of its small sealed or vented enclosure. The spring-loaded binding posts are mounted differently than standard subwoofers to minimize size. Finally, a handy steel “clearance” adapter plate allows the removal of enclosure wall depth for further minimal spacing concerns.
The cone’s 360-degree back bracing, ribbed Santoprene® surround, and Spiralead™ tinsel-lead technology help CompVT woofers sound spectacular. Perimeter venting, high-temp coil wire, double-stitching, and a logo trim ring around the steel basket’s outer edges are all features that make KICKER woofers the most reliable and best sounding subwoofers in the world.
