Product Information

The only thing thin about the CompRT® Subwoofer is the mounting depth. Whether it’s on the road, sand, or trail, these tough subs work perfectly in nearly anything with a motor.

The CompRT 8-inch Subwoofer is an all-weather thin subwoofer with a pair of 2-Ohm voice coils. With a mounting depth under four inches and plenty of power handling, this go-anywhere sub is as flexible as it is powerful. A UV-resistant cone and surround help make the CompRT sound great wherever the road (or trail) takes you.

A thick magnet structure reliably delivers huge power handling without affecting mounting depth. The specially designed UniPlate™ backplate and solid pole piece serve as a single heat-absorbing unit to provide excellent thermal management. With the custom SoloKon™ technology and the CompRT’s unique framework, the sub sounds fat – but keeps it thin! To make their subs even more reliable, KICKER engineers developed Forced-Air Cooling™ to help their subs run 20 percent cooler than before.

The CompRT 8-inch Subwoofer works best with a sealed enclosure and 300 watts of recommended power.

Big Bass Anywhere

Your car’s back dash. The bags on your bike. Behind your ATV’s seats. Add the weatherproof CompRT Sub to your ride without sacrificing comfort or storage space.


Superior components make a huge difference. Dual voice coils, a unique heat management system, and Kicker's signature red cone stitching all help to give you deep bass and outstanding reliability in their thinnest subwoofers.

Air It Out

Heat is the enemy of endurance. To make their subs even more reliable, KICKER engineers developed Forced-Air Cooling to help the CompRT subs run 20 percent cooler.

Ready to Ride

This KICKER® sub is built to take the power and sound incredible. With recommended power ratings as high as 500 watts, it’s easy to get the bass you crave.

Can and have you heard of these being mounted in motorcycle bags ?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2022
  Thanks for your inquiry. We have seen a number of installations involving cycle bags. Of primary concern is mounting location such that the radiating side (output) is acoustically separated from the rear of the speaker, rigidity of the baffle, and protection from rain and moisture. You may want to consult with a 12 volt car sound professional who can provide some recommendations. Our 12 volt specialists are available Tuesday through Saturday, 10AM to 6PM at our Montgomeryville Automotive Department. 215-368-8343 ext. 412.
