About the Kicker 46HS10

Bigger bass for your small space

When Kicker created the original Hideaway™ compact HS8 powered sub, they wanted to make a subwoofer that could fit almost anywhere and still deliver the performance that made Kicker famous. The HS10 sub adds the extra punch of a 10" speaker and a built-in 180-watt amplifier to give you really impressive bass response from a sub that will still fit almost anywhere.

Bigger bass for your small space

When Kicker created the original Hideaway™ compact HS8 powered sub, they wanted to make a subwoofer that could fit almost anywhere and still deliver the performance that made Kicker famous. The HS10 sub adds the extra punch of a 10" speaker and a built-in 180-watt amplifier to give you really impressive bass response from a sub that will still fit almost anywhere.

Tough and adjustable

With a Kicker 10" woofer, you can expect serious low end, and you can install the HS10 under most seats to bring the bass right up close. The tough all-aluminum chassis and stylish metal grille protect the speaker and deliver great sound. High- and low-level inputs give you plenty of options for hooking up your sub, and the HS10 can accept input signals from 0.25 to 40 volts so it works with almost any vehicle without adding a line output converter.

Dial in your sound

The Hideaway includes an adjustable low-pass crossover, a subsonic filter to improve efficiency, a phase switch, and a variable +6 dB bass boost adjustable with the included remote control bass knob. The HS10 also offers two auto turn-on options. The package includes a wiring harness for power, signal and remote turn-on connections with a quick-connect Molex® plug to make installation simple.

Features

Remote Control: The wired remote puts subwoofer output level control within easy reach. The remote housing is designed to mount under the dash and the included 20' cable, with a 3.5mm mini-plug on both ends, connects the remote to the subwoofer.

Dimensions:

  • Width: 1⅝"
  • Height: 1"
  • Depth: 1¼" (3" deep including the knob and cable)

Subsonic Filter: Frequencies that cannot be reproduced by the subwoofer do not become sound, but unnecessary oscillations causing distortion; these frequencies also waste amplifier power and can damage speakers. The subsonic filter removes inaudible frequencies to improve the performance of the sub by eliminating this harmful distortion. The 24 dB/octave subsonic filter's crossover point is 25 Hz.

Mounting: The subwoofer, with its 3⅜" height, can be mounted in applications with limited space, even under a seat in the passenger compartment of many vehicles. The four mounting brackets are bolted to the bottom of the chassis, and can extend the width or length (or a combination of the two). Each bracket extends just over ¾" from the sub.

Controls

Auto Turn-on: two position switch

  • +12V: amp turns on when 12 volts is applied to the remote turn-on wire
  • DC: amp turns on when a DC offset signal is present on the speaker-level input (not possible when using line level inputs); when the amp turns on using DC offset, the remote turn-on wire outputs +12 volt and can be used to turn on an additional amplifier

Input Level: two position switch

  • Hi: accepts signal input from 1 volt to 40 volts
  • Lo: accepts signal input from 250mV to 10 volts

Phase: two position switch; set the subwoofer phase to 0° or 180°

Bass Boost: rotary dial to adjust the bass boost; continuously variable from 0 to 6 dB; boost centered at 40 Hz

Crossover Frequency: rotary dial to control the low pass crossover frequency; 50-120 Hz; the crossover slope is 18 dB/octave

Gain: rotary dial to set the amplifier gain control; 1-40 volts for speaker level inputs and 250mV to 10 volts for line level inputs

Connections

Harness: The Quick-Connect harness has wires for power (17 feet/14-gauge), ground (2 feet/14-gauge), remote turn-on (2 feet/20-gauge), and signal input (8 feet/20-gauge). If using a speaker level input, just splice into the wire in the harness. If using a line level input, a speaker wire to RCA adapter is needed (sold separately). The included in-line fuse holder should be added to the power wire at the battery location.

Remote Bass: 3.5mm mini-jack for use with the included wired remote

Fuse: one 15-amp ATO fuse installed in the chassis

Q
Can this mount on the back seat in the trunk?
[ Mark  Jun 17, 2020 ]

A
I don't understand the question. The dimensions are I the description. The hard part for me was to get the main power wire through my Crosstrek firewall. I have never seen a seat in a trunk. Please tell us more.
[ HOWARD  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
I mounted mine under the front driver seat I don't see any reason you can't mount behind the back seat other than if the seat folds down, then it might be best to mount on the trunk wall/sides or if this is a sedan, mount it under the rear deck This is clearly a good solution if you have a small space Very good bass response I wish the sub has line in inputs / RCA
[ roel  Jun 17, 2020 ]
A
I'm sure it can. I just chose to mount it under my seat though.
[ JEFFREY  Jun 17, 2020 ]
A
You would be best to mount this on a hard surface not necessarily the back of a seat....For the size of the unit I have been very pleased with the output I'm actually looking at buying a second one to put under my passenger seat
[ ROBERT  Jun 17, 2020 ]
A
Your seat will need a metal or hard plastic backing to bolt the box to. Or if it's just going in trunk use velcro under it and it'll stick to carpet in trunk. This subwoofer is not a bass monster fyi. Rap songs it dont sound great. Rock or county sub sounds great.

i have a tundra and yes it can mount under the rear seat no problem .
[ PETER A  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
Yes but u will have to locate two flat metal support in side the seat and drill mounting holes or install a flat board inside the upholstery. Just dont leave it hanging/swinging from the headrest.
[ ASHANNAFI  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
Yes it can I have it in my k1500
[ Brandon kyle  Jun 18, 2020 ]
A
I don't see why not. As long as you have the space you can mount it wherever you want.

A
I have the smaller standard 6.5" screen in my 2020 Crosstrek. I got Kicker replacements for the cheesy cardboard speakers and spliced onto the front door speakers for the sub. It's got all the bass I would ever want.
[ HOWARD  May 07, 2020 ]
A
I didn't have to get anything else. The wire harness that came with the sub had the wires for coming off of the factory speaker wires. Depending on the vehicle and where you are mounting the sub, you might need more wire. I had to rethink where to mount it.
[ KENNETH  May 07, 2020 ]
A
I am extremely pleased with the set up... I did have to purchase about 3 feet of 14 gage wire for the remote turn on line which I tied into the fuse box for a 12volt signal that tells the amplifier that the accessories are on I also purchased electrical tape and wire splicing connectors to tie in the speaker level input lines to the factory radio...Everything else comes with the package again I am extremely pleased with the sound I'm getting out of this device I installed in a 2015 Ford Explorer under the driver seat
[ ROBERT  May 07, 2020 ]
A
It comes with everything needed to install it to a factory audio system.Enter

If you have 3-1/8" of height clearance.
[ Mitchell  Apr 23, 2020 ]

Can't answer that with any reliable info. Here are the dimensions: dimensions: 9-7/8"W x 3-1/8"H x 12-3/8"D

Q
How long is the supplied harness?
[ Joshua  Apr 04, 2020 ]
6 answers
A
The power wire is aprox 17 feet and speaker input wires aprox 8 feet
[ Robert  May 20, 2020 ]
A
I just installed mine. I don't remember exactly, however the Hot lead seemed to be about 6 foot. The ground was a little shorter I think. The speaker wires about 6-8 feet. The blue and white turn on wire a little shorter. The remote bass wire is quite long. Probably 12 feet. I installed mine under the back seat of my VW Bus, the bass wire is all the way to the front, tucked off to one side no problem.
[ RANDALL  May 20, 2020 ]
A
It is kind of short. I am guessing 8 ft for the speaker wires,14ft for the power and 2 ft for the ground . I used the RCA connectors and it made the speaker wires a little longer. I have it under my passenger seat and I ran the speaker wires directly up my center console trim into my dash in a 2017 VW Jetta. It worked really well. It's good bass too. Since it's in my cabin it is just enough punch to cover the missing blows in my system. I have it set very high at the unit, and it rattles my mirrors when I turn the knob up all the way, amd is almost completely off when the knob is down. If you need more than 8 ft., I'd suggest getting the RCA leads. They need to be soldered or crimped.
[ WINDSOR  May 20, 2020 ]
A
Maybe 18 inches
[ Anabel  May 20, 2020 ]

The Quick-Connect harness has wires for power (17 feet/14-gauge), ground (2 feet/14-gauge), remote turn-on (2 feet/20-gauge), and signal input (8 feet/20-gauge). If using a speaker level input, just splice into the wire in the harness. If using a line level input, a speaker wire to RCA adapter is needed (sold separately)
[ JEFF  May 19, 2020 ]

Did not install so not sure. The control wire for bass control is approx 12' long
[ TERRY  May 19, 2020 ]
Q
Is this setup at 2 ohm or 4 ohm?

I purchased this sub, replacement component set, coaxial set, and a JBL amp for them for my 4 door 2006 Tundra work truck. Paid to have it installed, It is installed under the driver seat and the remote gain dial is mounted close to the other controls. Big sound for a small footprint
