About the Kicker CompVR 43CVR122

Built to handle abuse

Kicker's CompVR Series 43CVR122 sub delivers serious bass without tearing a hole in your wallet. This 12" sub handles up to 400 watts RMS, thanks to a tough, injection-molded polypropylene cone supported by a reliable Santoprene™ surround. The unique SoloKon™ cone with its 360-degree back bracing keeps going strong when the bass gets heavy, while perimeter venting in the strong steel basket keeps the voice coils cool for dependable performance.

Dual voice coils for wiring flexibility

The sub's dual 2-ohm voice coils give you more wiring options when setting up your system. The sub's cool-looking black finish highlights the potent low end you'll hear and feel.

Note: If you are wiring this DVC sub for lower impedance, make sure that your amp is compatible. 

To drive this single subwoofer, we recommend a mono amplifier rated between 300 and 600 watts RMS at 1 or 4 ohms. For more information, please refer to our article on How to Match Subwoofers and Amplifiers.

Can't go wrong with a Kicker

Never disappointed with Kicker subs. I put this 12" CompVR in my Suburban powered by a 20 year old Cousic 240W amp. It pounds. Clean, accurate and very musical.

Pros: Loud, deep, accurate

Cons: It doesn't do the dishes

Great bass, budget price!

I had four of these in my 1996 chevy show truck in high school with 400watts running to each. People though I had a 4-6 thousand dollar setup when really it only cost me around 1,500.00. If you need a semi shallow speaker that can take a beating and still keep ticking you can't go wrong with theses. I shook the pans off the wall in a whataburger drive through with only four of these puppies. They were just as loud as 2 kicker 12 inch solar barricks with 500 watts to each. I DB dragged a 140 with this setup. Long story short these will make some serious sound for a budget price.

Pros: Cheap, can take a SERIOUS beating and will keep on ticking.

Cons: None that I can recall.

Features

Dual Voice Coils: This woofer features dual 2Ω voice coils, offering wiring flexibility. When the voice coils are wired in parallel, the woofer presents a 1Ω load. When the voice coils are wired in series, the woofer presents a 4Ω load.

Rubber Magnet Boot: A black rubber boot covers the outside edge of the magnet structure to improve the cosmetics of the woofer and protect the magnet during installation. The boot is removable if needed for tight installations.

Break-in Period: The high-performance suspension system makes the speaker very stiff out-of-the-box. Approximately 2 weeks of daily playing will allow the suspension to break-in and reach its optimum equilibrium. A broken-in subwoofer will exhibit stronger bass performance, smoother response, and greater low-bass extension.

Sealed Enclosures: Sealed enclosures provide the most control over a woofer and provide accurate sonic reproduction, making them suitable to all types of music. Kicker recommends sealed enclosures from 1.6 ft³ to 4.6 ft³.

Vented Enclosures: Vented (or ported) enclosures typically provide better overall efficiency than sealed so they are suitable for use with smaller amplifiers, giving you more bass output from less power. Kicker recommends ported enclosures in the following range:

  • Minimum Enclosure Volume: 1.75 ft³ with a 12-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 20" slot port
  • Maximum Enclosure Volume: 2.25 ft³ with a 12-1/2" x 3" x 20-1/2" slot port

Q
I have two of these subs i have an memphis srx1200d.1 thats puts out 1200 watts at 1 ohm is that a good fit for these subs?
[ Prentice  May 13, 2019 ]

A
That's perfect
[ Lorenzo  May 22, 2019 ]
A
I believe that amp will over power those subs They are rated at 400watts rms
[ MICHAEL  May 14, 2019 ]
Q
I have an Interfire T-270 Amp. It is a 900watt amp and on the box it says 2 Ohm at 14.4V (MAX) 250W x 2. Also says the same but in RMS instead of MAX but instead at 160 x 2. When it comes to this stuff I'm illiterate. Is this a good amp to move just one of this type of sub?
[ Kyle  Jan 01, 2018 ]

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.
