42CWQ124 12" CompQ Subwoofer w/ Dual 4-Ohm Voice Coils

Experience every nuance of your bass. Thanks to outstanding power handling, next-level structural stability and a unique power plant, the CompQ™ discovers every note with miraculous detail. All with the highest RMS power rating Kicker ever achieved in a round subwoofer.


KICKER’s unique cone bracing technology ensures perfectly linear cone movement while the Blue Lace™ spider adds even more stability to the sub. You get unrivaled sonic accuracy and extraordinary volume.

Take the Power

A ceramic magnet and computer-optimized voice coil provide outstanding power handling, while the UniPlate™ pole piece & backplate ensure the CompQ stays cool, even under extreme power loads.

Join Forces

Spring-loaded copper terminals hold as much as an 8-gauge speaker wire, while extra thick tinsel leads bring all that music directly to the voice coil. You get every watt of power right where you want it.

The 12" CompQ 4 Ohm

The CompQ 12-Inch Subwoofer is the best sound quality round driver Kicker's ever made, with nearly identical construction and performance as their L7 square subs.

A thick ceramic magnet and heavy duty voice coil work with an extended pole piece to provide extremely deep bass reproduction - all without distortion. You get a strong, crisp sound that works perfectly with every kind of music.

The CompQ 12-Inch Subwoofer works best with a sealed or ported enclosure with 850 watts of recommended power.
