Kenwood's Performance Series subwoofers deliver maximum bass for your buck. A diamond array pattern reinforces the heavy-duty polypropylene cones which are mated to durable, tough butyl rubber surrounds to take the abuse from maximum excursion transients. The motor structure features a dual ventilation system to keep the voice coil cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent Car subsUsed to own a pair of Kicker Comps then bought these."these are way better" If u know how speakers work and know how hard to run them and there limits these speakers are great for me I've had them for over 4 years and no problems. I run a 1000watt amp bridged and both subs are in id say a 2. cubic foot to 2.5 cubic foot slot ported box.As of now I'm about to upgrade my amp because my amp is to weak for these subs I'm afraid of under powering them and cooking them. But i can still flip coins on my car lol

Kenwood KFC-W3013PS Performance Series 12" 1200W Subwoofer

Sealed or ported? I have a 2.2ft3 box with an amplifier capable of meeting this woofers RMS. What is the tuning frequency and port size for maximum volume output? Thanks

Asked by: Squidyman
In that volume I would recommend staying sealed with relatively heavy fill. It should reach into the upper 20's pretty easily and handle a good amount of power without excursion issues.

if I put it in a small box what is it going to do to the sound? I know its not good for it but i'm short on space.

Asked by: BigDamage1
A smaller box will take a little away from the bottom end this sub will play. It will however keep cone excursion under control better, so technically the sub will handle its power better.

How does this compare to your dayton line what would you most compare it to?

Asked by: qx56
The closest thing I would compare this to in the Dayton line would be the SD315A-88 or DCS305-4.

is this subwoofer good for a sealed box?

Asked by: jade
Yes this will work very well in a sealed box. I would recommend between 1.25 and 1.75 cubic feet for the best results.
