Sealed truck-style enclosure loaded with one 10" CompRT 2-ohm subwoofer and one 10" passive radiator. Written by Crutchfield's Bob Bihlmayer. Enlarge your horizons with bigger bass.Kicker's CWRT102 loaded enclosure puts a low-profile 10 CompRT subwoofer and a second passive sub in a downward-firing box that brings Kicker bass power to the crowded spaces of today's cars and trucks. The rugged sealed box was designed specifically for this subwoofer, so you can count on getting maximum performance whatever music you listen to.
The second sub (called a "passive radiator") reacts to the air pressure produced by the active sub, reinforcing the low end without the noise of a ported enclosure. Made to dish it out.The 10 CompRT sub's tough injection-molded polypropylene cone gives it the stiffness to resist distortion when you're pushing the volume. Its rubber surround stands up to heavy use, and combines with a specially-designed back plate to give you more excursion (which equals more bass) than other skinny subs. This sub handles up to 400 watts RMS, so you'll get the kind of bass response that brings the best out of your music. The box's downward-firing design helps protect the sub from damage, and lets you place items on top of the cabinet to save space.
Its sturdy medium-density fiberboard construction and rugged black carpet covering give the enclosure good looks that complement its performance.
