About the Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW800F

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW800F 8" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures under 3 inches deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The Kenwood Excelon KFC-XW800F 8" "flat" subwoofer produces serious bass output in the hard-to-fit areas of your compact car or truck. And this shallow-mount sub measures under 3 inches deep, so you can get creative with your installation.

The carbon-glass fiber cone employs a honeycomb pattern to deliver quick response in demanding conditions without flexing. The beefed-up rubber surround maintains control over the cone, minimizing distortion caused by resonance. A die-cast aluminum basket offers a rock-solid housing with plenty of venting to keep the heat down. The silver-plated push terminals offer convenient connections and provide excellent signal transfer.

Features

Flat Subwoofer: The Kenwood eXcelon flat subwoofer design is approximately 40% slimmer in height than a standard subwoofer. This makes them ideal for installation in the tightest of spaces such as behind or under the seat of a pickup truck.

Carbon-Glass Fiber Cone: The eXcelon flat woofer uses a carbon-glass fiber honeycomb cone which allows the woofer to be efficient and durable at the same time.

Rubber Surround: The Kenwood woofer features a smooth linear rubber surround for added durability and increased excursion resulting in exceptional deep bass response.

Super Linear Spider: The flat woofer utilizes a super linear spider for maximum control over the woofer's linear motion to improve overall sound quality.

Heat Transfer System: The Kenwood woofer features an advanced Heat Transfer System designed specifically for its slim-design to provide proper ventilation to keep the woofer cool.

Aluminum-Cast Basket: The woofer is housed in a cast-aluminum basket for increased rigidity and long-lasting reliability.

Spring Terminals: The flat woofer utilizes a pair of silver-plated spring terminals on one side of the woofer for connection to your amplifier's speaker wiring. The spring terminals will accept up to 10 AWG speaker wire.

Concealing Ring: The eXcelon woofer comes supplied with a removable, rubber concealing ring used to hide the woofer's mounting screws for a neat and professional looking installation. The concealing ring increases the top mounting height to 0.875".

Enclosure Compatibility

Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box size recommended by Kenwood is 0.5 cu/ft.

Vented Box Volume: The vented box size recommended by Kenwood is 0.5 cu/ft. One 1-3/16" x 11" x 17-1/8" (long) slot port should be used with a 0.5 cu/ft enclosure.

Q
Can I use this subwoofer to replace the existing factory subwoofer in my 2011 dodge nitro?
[ Wayne  Sep 08, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
You cannot, the magnet is too large, and will not fit in the factory location. A better options would be this: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_130TSS2002/item.html . There are some wiring harnesses you need for proper installation. I would give an advisor a call, as those harnesses should be included, but we will have to do adjust that manually for you! https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

[ Chris  Jan 19, 2019 ]

The Kenwood has a recommended power range of 50-150 watts RMS so, yes, you will need an aftermarket amplifier to power it properly.

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.

I have this shallow-mount 8 as a replacement for my ford OEM unit. i assume you probably have the same OEM mount. so yes, it can replace yet. As for the sound, it's fantastic for shallow mount 8. extremely clean. you will not get SUPER HARD hits, but can get pretty hard, very clean, hits.
