Weatherproof Tube Subwoofers for Vehicles or Boats
The new 2018 KICKER TB-Series compact car subwoofer systems are a modern take on bass tubes. Now available in 10-inch (TB10) or 8-inch (TB8) sizes for 2-ohm or 4-ohm loads, these durable loaded subwoofer enclosures can be used in a boat, a UTV, in a trunk or behind a truck seat.
Offering big bass in a small footprint, the TB-Series compressed housing features thick ABS construction and an innovative, low-profile, steel bracketing system. This weather-proof, flexible system allows installations to be easily performed horizontally, vertically or inverted with total confidence, even in off-road applications. Spring-loaded speaker terminals are included on every enclosure, as are a set of matched KICKER CompR® Subwoofer grilles.
The heart of the TB-Series is made up of a CompR Subwoofer and a passive reflex subwoofer. The CompR features a stacked magnet structure for high power handling and sound quality, UniPlate™ solid pole piece and backplate for excellent heat dissipation, red double-stitched Santoprene® surround and an all-polypropylene SoloKon™ cone system with 360-degree back bracing. It all combines to maintain a superior level of volume and musical accuracy while delivering reliable performance in the rain, snow and sun.
On the opposite side of the TB enclosure is a reflex subwoofer, made with the same cone and surround materials as the CompR. The reflex sub not only gives the tube more volume and deeper bass, but is the “secret sauce” that allows the sub system to be extremely loud and compact. The result is a flexible sub that plays hard in any environment, yet leaves plenty of room for storage.
KICKER recommends 400-watts of power for the TB10, and 300-watts for the TB8. Not surprisingly, the TB10 plays deeper bass down to 25Hz while the TB8 stops at 30Hz.
