Car Subwoofers

Kicker CompRT Shallow-Mount Car Subwoofers

Kicker CompRT12 Car Subwoofer

Kicker just introduced the CompRT shallow-mount car subwoofer line, which offers one-inch less mounting depth than their prior CompVT automotive subwoofers. A shallower depth allows for deeper bass from installations where conventional sized subwoofers won’t fit. CompRT Subwoofers are now available in 1- or 2-Ohm dual-voice coils in four sizes: 6-3/4-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch and 12-inch. Each subwoofer is made to match perfectly with KICKER KX-Series Mono Amplifiers in a car or truck, or with smaller-scale, low-impedance KICKER PX-Series Amplifiers in a powersports setting. Picking up where the preceding CompVT Series left off, CompRT Subwoofers are engineered to deliver serious bottom-end where space is limited. Whether behind the seat in a compact car or in a motorcycle’s saddlebags, make no mistake signature KICKER bass is on board.

The CompRT motor structure is as intricate as one might expect from a shallow-mount subwoofer. It utilizes a large-diameter, progressive-roll spider for increased linearity and better overall sound.  An inverted-bumped back plate and a bumped top plate allow for full voice-coil clearance and excursion, creating outstanding bass despite the limited area.  High-temp coil wire winding around the high-mass, solid pole piece and double venting contribute to the woofers’ efficient cooling attributes and durability. As a result, CompRT power handling has increased dramatically with the newest design.

CompRT features an injection-molded polypropylene cone and tough Santoprene surround that interlocks with the front gasket for ultra-rigidity and minimal distortion.  The full-coverage, sealed basket provides full protection of the motor assembly, and with the interlocking surround and gasket, helps the weather-proof subwoofer perform perfectly in outdoor powersports settings.

CompRT features dual pairs of sturdy, spring-loaded wire terminals that are custom-designed specifically for the basket so the subwoofer can retain its shallow mounting capability.
