KICKER Downfiring subwoofer enclosures

Press Release: STILLWATER, OK – KICKER announced it is shipping its first PTRTP Powered Down-Firing Loaded Enclosures, available in a 10- and 12-inch model.  The enclosures come with a built-in, amplifier and remote volume control.

The down-firing design allows the enclosure to fit in tight spaces.  The enclosures stand at only about six inches high and the enclosure design allows items to be stacked on top of it, if mounted in a trunk or cargo area.

The PTRTP enclosures deliver up to 500 watts of power and have a best-in-class input sensitivity.  The built-in amplifiers accept input voltages ranging from 125 millivolts to 40 volts, for compatibility with virtually any factory or aftermarket radio or source without the additional expense of a line-out converter.

The enclosures will be shown on the KICKER UnMASKED! Live show and they will retail at  $449.99 and $499.99.

Loaded into each enclosure is an active, KICKER CompRT® shallow-mount subwoofer, equipped with Forced Air Cooling™ for efficiency and durability. A bumped top plate allows for full voice-coil clearance and excursion in a shallow-mount woofer, while the large-diameter, progressive-roll spider ensures increased linearity, better overall sound quality and bass.

Next to the active woofer is a reFLEX™ passive radiator, providing a significant bass upgrade without increasing overall depth of the already thin enclosure.
