Kicker CompR Car Subwoofers

Kicker CompR Car Subwoofer

For 2013, Kicker announced the CompR car subwoofers ($119.95 to $299.95), which combine advanced materials and superior technology, replacing the CompVR — Kicker’s top-selling woofer of all time. CompR takes flexibility to another level with a single pair of stout, push-button wire terminals featuring a convenient impedance-selector slider for easily changing the dual-voice-coil impedance (2/8 Ohms or 1/4 Ohms, depending upon model).  No additional wiring is needed for switching between series or parallel configurations.

Besides convenience, CompR delivers the deepest musical bass and is made to work perfectly with KICKER KX-Series mono amplifiers.  The motor structure itself is a mechanical marvel, utilizing a large-diameter, progressive-roll spider for increased linearity and better sound with high-strength Spiralead tinsel leads woven through for maximum transfer of signal.  A KICKER standard, the one-piece UniPlate, features the vented pole piece and bumped back plate that’s tapered toward the edge to improve the magnetic force within the gap, optimizing that magnetic energy. The “bump” provides added voice-coil clearance, assuring precise performance.  High-temp coil wire winding around the pole piece and innovative Quad Venting™ slots contribute to the woofers’ efficient cooling attributes and durability.

CompR features an injection-molded polypropylene cone and tough Santoprene surround for ultra-rigidity and zero distortion.  The full-coverage, steel basket provides full protection of the large spider and complete motor assembly.  While the basket fully protects the inner workings, its mounting depth has been minimized further to easily fit into more installations.

These latest CompR advances and technology have resulted in a higher power rating than ever before from the series, making this one of KICKER’s most proficient subwoofers ever built.
