Vented 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
VCVR Series vented enclosures combine KICKER’s CompVR subwoofer 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 VCVR Series enclosures are covered in carpet for protection and pre-loaded with a CompVR woofer.
The location and orientation of your VC enclosure will affect the quality
and quantity of the bass. Designed for use in SUVs and sedan type vehicles,
the enclosure offers you several mounting options.
The first rule you must remember is that the vent opening in these enclosures cannot be obstructed. Around the tuning frequency of the vent a
substantial amount of bass is created. Therefore we recommend you leave
at least four inches of clear space around the vent.
If the enclosure is to be mounted all the way in the back of the vehicle, it
works best to point the woofer toward the front of the vehicle. Conversely,
if the enclosure is going to be mounted closer to the back seat, pointing the
woofer toward the rear of the vehicle will give you the best results. These
guidelines are good for when the enclosure is mounted cross-ways in the
vehicle as shown below.
Front Mounting, woofer faces the back of the car!
Rear Mounting, woofer faces the front of the car!
When it is more convenient to mount the enclosure along a side wall,
your best option is to put it on the left side of the vehicle. (Shown below)
This orientation will point the vent toward the rear of the vehicle and will
produce the most low bass output. Remember to leave at least four inches
of room between the enclosure and the back of the vehicle.
A Least
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 on opposite page.)
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.
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!
