COMPVT
Real subwoofer performance in a shallow mount. KICKER's CompVT subwoofer offers CompVR quality and performace in places few others can go.
KICKER® introduced a true high-performance subwoofer with a reduced mounting depth a few years back, and it was met with immediate success. Who wouldn’t want a subwoofer that pounds insanely from the slimmest locations? The next generation of KICKER CompVT® Subwoofer slides into door panels and other tight fits.

Two options are available that deliver real KICKER bass and take serious power. The 12-inch CVT12 and 10-inch CVT10 easily handle 400 watts RMS (800w peak) without hesitation.

Precise KICKER engineering allows the CompVT to pound with limited space. A special four-layer voice coil provides the CompVT the ability to work with serious amounts of power without the bulk. The woofer’s stiff, injection-molded, modified-spoke cone is shaped to provide maximum excursion from a slender basket, allowing the ideal amount of flex for better strength and durability.

Space-saving features make for woofers with amazing mounting depths of less than 4-1/2 inches! A ventless, solid-pole design allows the CompVT to be mounted directly against the rear wall of its small sealed or vented enclosure. The spring-loaded binding posts are mounted differently than standard subwoofers to minimize size. Finally, a handy steel “clearance” adapter plate allows the removal of enclosure wall depth for further minimal spacing concerns.

The cone’s 360-degree back bracing, ribbed Santoprene® surround, and Spiralead™ tinsel-lead technology help CompVT woofers sound spectacular. Perimeter venting, high-temp coil wire, double-stitching, and a logo trim ring around the steel basket’s outer edges are all features that make KICKER woofers the most reliable and best sounding subwoofers in the world.

4-12 cvt Chevy 1500

I have 4 cvt kickers under the seat in my 2011 1500 crew cab. They hit very hard since the install my truck has been in the shop 5 time my service air bag light keeps coming on very pleased with this product. Truly living loud.

12"cvt

i was a big non beliver in flats but i installed 2 cvt 12" in my mazda pickup, and boy i can tell you that its just ripping up the place. kicker needs to make a big come back in the caribbean.

2 12" CompVT 1 Cb Ft

Got a Reg Cab S10 so I had to experience shallows for the first time. I didn't know anyone around me who had any positive experience with shallow mounts. I was going to get MB Quarts when the guy on the phone at sonicelectronix.com talked me out of it and convinced me these Kickers would be what I was looking for. (didnt want to spend and arm and a leg on something I wasn't sure about) I figured why not...Im sure these shallows will be weak no matter what brand I get. I got the smallest box I could find and it left 1 Cb Ft (the min) for each speaker. Got some poly-fil and hooked em up to a JL Audio 750/1 Mono.......WOW! Not what i expected at all. These things are knockin. They have a little problem with range but thats my fault for not giving them enough airspace. I will say tho. Im impressed. I have 14 years car audio experience and I can say these performed awesomely. Now dont get it twisted these arent the "best" subs. Just amazing shallow mounts. I will always miss my RF T1's in the slotted box. But these CVT's are amazing for systems with limited space. If you only have a little space but a great need for bass. These Kicker CVT's are a sure bet.

4-12"CVT KICKERS IN ONE TINY TRUCK

I LIKE IT WHEN PEOPLE LOOK AT MY TRUCK AND THEY THINK THAT THERE IS NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT, BUT THEN I ROLL MY WINDOWS DOWN AND START AND EARTHQUAKE. I HAVENT HAD MY TRUCK MUCH BUT ALL I KNEW WAS THAT I WANTED A SYSTEM THAT WOULD MAKE CALI BLAME ME FOR THEIR EARTHQUAKES, THE FIRST SET OF CVTS THAT I HAD WERE GIVEN TO ME BY MY DAD, HE STILL HAD THEM IN A BOX FROM A YEAR AGO, HE SAID "YOU DONT NEED THAT MUCH BASS IN THAT TRUCK, I THINK THESE WILL DO." WELL MY DAD DIDNT KNOW THAT I WAS RESEARCHING SYSTEM INSTALLATION, THEN IT BECAME THAT I HAD TOOMUCH BASS. I PURCHASED A YELLOWTOP BATTERY, 4 GAUGE POWER WIRE (20FT), ONE 100AMP FUSE AND FUSE HOLDER, 4GAUGE GROUND WIRE, ONE ZX750.1, ONE BOSS CAPACITOR, 20 FT OF SPEAKER WIRE, 2 12" CVT 2012 VERSION (THE FIRST TWO WERE A GIFT). I HAVE ALL THESE SPEAKERS CONNECTED IN A BRIDGED WIRING. FOR YOU PEOPLE THAT DONT KNOW WHAT BRIDGED IS, CONNECT ONE SPEAKER TO THE OTHER, TO THE OTHER, TO THE OTHER, AND THEN TO THE AMPLIFIER. SOME PEOPLE DONT RECOMMEND IT BUT WHO DOESNT WANT ONE BIG ASS 16OHM SPEAKER, OH DID I MENTION WHEN YOU BRIDGE THE SPEAKERS IT ADDS UP THE OHMS? NO? WELL THERE YOU GO IT ADDS UP THE OHMS. ALL IM SAYING IS DONT BE AFRAID TO PUSH YOUR SPEAKERS TO THEIR LIMIT, KICKER MAKES SPEAKERS THAT WERE MADE TO REACH THEIR LIMIT. I HOPE YOU GUYS AND GALS LIKE MY COMMENT.

FROM ONE HAPPY ASS CUSTOMER,

JOSE QUEZADA.

IF YOU EVER NEED HELP ON CONNECTING A SYSTEM FEEL FREE TO ASK KICKER CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE OR ME, josequezada666@gmail.com

2010 CompVT 12"

I used to run 2 CVR 12" in the large ported Kicker box in the back seat of my 05 F150 and Loved them, then..... My baby was born. So out went the subs. I finally broke down and bought the pre-fab f-150 dual 12" box for under the rear seat and bought two of the 12" CVT not expecting to be impressed after having the CVR's in the big ported box. Hooked them up yesterday to my Kicker ZX 750.1 and was blown away by the heart stopping bass and clearity. Great subs. For me, does great with both mid and low range bass. Great purchase, once again Kicker did not dissapoint. Now I have my back seat and great bass!!!!! Thanks Kicker!!!!

6.5 Comp cvt door speaker

I just installed the kicker 6.5 comp cvt in my rear door for a replacement for my stock speakers hopeing they would give me a little more bass NO not at all they suck do not put these in your doors if your trying to get a little more bass they don't work they SUCK !!!@

CVT652

Extremely disappointed! ! ! Replaced (3) JL Audio 6WO with (3) Kicker CVT652 because the JL's finally wore out after 6 years.. These Kickers do not even come near to what had with JL's.. Too bad the JL's are twice the price... In this case, I don't think I could say I even got what I paid for!! These speakers SUCK!!!

10" cvt

wow i just bought a set of these kicker cvt 10s and they slam harder than anything then i have ever had. I have even had a older model cvr and these way out perform them. i am definitaly LIVIN LOUD!

Nothing touches kicker!

Just wanna say keep doing a wicked job! Nothing pounds like my blazer with 2 15"CVR's.
But now just bought a qc Ram and gonna try out 2 of your 12" CVTs.

Kicker

I have 2 comp 10s and they ROCK.
