Sealed Enclosure Systems
Congratulations! You have just purchased one of the most flexible subwoofers
yet from KICKER. Your CompVR sub is designed to give you great bass performance in a wide variety of applications. These installations instructions will help you
get the most out of your new KICKER sub. Thanks for buying KICKER. Enjoy!
Installation Instructions
These enclosures combine KICKER’s CompVR woofer with computer
designed and human-fine-tuned enclosures. They offer a level of bass performance never before thought possible from a commercially available
enclosure. The HCVR Series enclosures are covered in carpet for protection
and pre-loaded with a CompVR woofer.
KICKER HC enclosures are engineered to provide the best bass response
when mounted in the rear hatch or trunk.
Move enclosure around and mount it
where it sounds best to you.

*The two ohm unit should be used with the KX Series Class D amplifiers KX550.3, KX700.5, KX400.1,
and KX600.1. It is not recommended for use with any KX two or four channel amplifiers.
The four ohm unit should be used with any KX Series two or four channel amplifier. It is not recommended for use with any KX Series Class D amplifiers.
After determining the best mounting position, check carefully in the areas
where the mounting brackets will go. Make very sure that the mounting
screws will not puncture the gas tank, brake lines, wire harnesses, etc., or
interfere with any mechanical items on the underside of the chosen mounting surface. Turn the enclosure upside-down and attach
the four mounting brackets
to the bottom of the enclosure using the supplied smaller screws. Each bracket must
be positioned so the rounded
end protrudes approximately
3/4" from under the cabinet
to allow a screw to easily pass
through it for attachment to
the vehicle.(See Diagram.)
Plug your subwoofer
speaker wire into the terminals, using the red connector
as positive and the black connector as negative. Hook the
other end of this wire to your
subwoofer amplifier in accordance with its owner's manual. This enclosure is
wired internally to produce a 2 or 4 Ohm load at the terminals depending on
the model.
With the enclosure right side up, securely attach it to the vehicle with the
supplied larger screws. If the supplied hardware is not applicable to your
installation, some other means of securely attaching the enclosure to the
vehicle must be used.
To avoid potential injury from forward movement of the enclosure
during abrupt stops or accidents, this enclosure must be properly
installed and securely fastened to your vehicle.

KICKER drivers are capable of producing sound levels that can permanently
damage your hearing! Turning up a system to a level that has audible distortion is more damaging to your ears than listening to an undistorted system at
the same volume level. The threshold of pain is always an indicator that the
sound level is too loud and may permanently damage your hearing.
Please use common sense when controlling volume!
