Kicker 8" CompRT Car Subwoofers - 40CWRT81
CompRT Subwoofers have reduced what were already the thinnest mounting
depths available from the world's bass leader, taking almost another inch off
the shallow-mount driver's basket suitable for the trickiest installations.
It's true, deep bass that's made to fit where conventional-sized subwoofers
Despite the shallower mount, CompRT Subwoofers are now available in 1- or 2-Ohm
dual-voice coils, made to match perfectly with KICKER KX-Series Mono Amplifiers
in a car or truck, or with smaller-scale, low-impedance KICKER PX-Series Amplifiers
in a powersports setting. Picking up where the preceding CompVT Series left
off, CompRT Subwoofers are engineered to deliver serious bottom-end where space
is limited. Whether behind the seat in a compact car or in a motorcycle's saddlebags,
make no mistake signature KICKER bass is on board.
The CompRT motor structure is as intricate as one might expect from a shallow-mount
subwoofer. It utilizes a large-diameter, progressive-roll spider for increased
linearity and better overall sound. An inverted-bumped back plate and a bumped
top plate allow for full voice-coil clearance and excursion, creating outstanding
bass despite the limited area. High-temp coil wire winding around the high-mass,
solid pole piece and double venting contribute to the woofers' efficient cooling
attributes and durability. As a result, CompRT power handling has increased
dramatically with the newest design.
CompRT features an injection-molded polypropylene cone and tough Santoprene
surround that interlocks with the front gasket for ultra-rigidity and minimal
distortion. The full-coverage, sealed steel basket provides full protection
of the motor assembly, and with the interlocking surround and gasket, helps
the weather-proof subwoofer perform perfectly in outdoor powersports settings.
CompRT features dual pairs of sturdy, spring-loaded wire terminals that are
custom-designed specifically for the basket so the subwoofer can retain its
shallow mounting capability.
