    I picked up the Kicker TCompS 10" at first powered by the Kicker 1200w Max 2 channel amp and it just wasn't cutting it. Sounded decent but not enough lows or power. I took it back and bought the Kicker CompR 12" and tied with the Kicker 1200W amp and it's insanely nice and good. Thick rich bass at all levels, highs and lows. It puts just enough meat in the air to make your music feel rich and powerful. I usually listen to heavy metal music and this thing delivers insane bass drops and double pedal action making you feel like your near the speakers at a high end metal concert. I have the Kicker 1200w amp and CompR 12" playing along with a Kicker 600w 4 channel amp powering my VW Fender premium speakers along with Rockford Fosgate tweeters. The music is so clear I hear things in songs I never knew were there. The quality of the enclosure and sub are top notch, something you could compare to a high end luxury car. The size yes is a bit awkward for the trunk in a Mk6 Jetta but hey I wanted it and delivers amazing bass. I also tried to do a nice professional looking install in the trunk.

    Heart-Pounding Performance

    I picked this up and ran it with the Kicker CX 600.1 Mono amp. I have to say I am very impressed with the sound quality and thump. The sub kicks really hard and sounds great! The only thing I would prefer would be to have a non-vented box. I understand the vent makes the sub sound louder however it does come at the cost of better sound quality. A sealed box will have the advantage over ported and band pass enclosures in terms of overall sound clarity. A sealed subwoofer box will deliver a tight, clean and accurate bass response and have a flat frequency response curve. This being said although this subwoofer comes in a ported box, it does sound really good, clear, and loud compared to others. I would recommend it although I would be curious to hear the difference with this same sub in a sealed enclosure.

    I normally don't review items but this is an exception. I purchased the the 10 compC for my lexus Es. It sounded decent and i kept forcing myself to like it. I went into best buy and saw this compR enclosure on sale and decided to exchange the 10 and pay the difference. Immediately upon connecting and turning on my car I FELT AT EASE. What I wanted the 10 to do this 12 did it at ease. The 10 gave an extended BROOOOOMMM (yes, with an R) while the 12 gave a BOOM with a (THUMP) which was what i was looking for. Don't fool yourself get the best if you can. And remember if your are forcing yourself to like something, you've failed... take it back and buy the premium one.

    Blew in 3 Months

    I have this paired with a Pioneer GM-D8601 amplifier that puts out 500W RMS, which is perfectly paired to this Kicker speaker that accepts 500W RMS. After 3 months of moderate use, it blew. No block parties, no competition jams. Just regular usage. I assumed that it must be the Pioneer amp, because Kicker is top notch quality. Traced wiring. Tore everything apart. Couldn't find a fault. Finally, I figured I'd take a peak at the speaker. There it was. One of the coils was burnt up. I've used Kicker components for other projects. I guess I'll see how good Kicker's warranty service is.

    My previous system was a Rockford P3 so this sub does not match up to that power but is decent. If you are looking for in your face bass this is not the sub. But it does well for subtle and controllable sound this is an good way to go. Had issues at first, sub blew within a day and had to be replace. It was more than likely due to being faulty from the manufacturer. Replaced it and have not had a problem since. Kicker has a control knob that can be used with their products and installed near the dash to give you extra control. I suggest adding that in. It comes in handy when you don't want too much bass without having to use the radio controls. Overall it does the job.

    I had a Kicker 44DCWC102 which is a ported dual 10 inch CompC loaded enclosure in a 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport. Definitely loud but it took up too much space and sounded a little muddy. I bought this 12 inch sub in store on sale at $188 to replace the old one and at lower volumes, it sounds just as loud. It does sound much more punchy but that could be because I haven't broken it in yet. I am satisfied so far and will give it time to break in before I crank up the volume. I have an Alpine PDR-V9 powering this sub as well as it did for the old one so I'm not worried of over or under powering it.

    I'm no speaker connoisseur but I AM a music aficionado, and this sub is breathing new life into all of the music that I thought I knew from front to back. Clear deep tones that you can not only hear but FEEL, and the only hint of distortion I hear is from my car doors and windows, which can't handle the power that this thing brings. This sub is a beast, and definitely big enough for a normal sedan like mine. Highly recommended, and if you get Best Buy's extended warranty, then they got you covered so you can blast this thing without worrying about it.

    I've owned plenty of Kicker products including several L7 and L5 Solobaric subs. This was my frist time buying a Kicker Comp sub and I will NEVER buy another one. I paired this up with the Kicker CXA600.1 amplifer, which was supposed to be a perfect match and the subwoofer blew in less than a week. There is no way this thing is capable of handling 600w RMS. It's more like 200-300w RMS. I only had the amp turned up halfway. Don't waste your time with this sub. It's garbage.
