The VC Series vented enclosures combine KICKER’s award winning line of subwoofers with computer-modeled & human fine-tuned enclosures to offer a level of bass performance never before thought possible from a commercially available, ready-to-install subwoofer system. The VC Series enclosure is available w/a pre-loaded 12 inch Comp. The location & orientation of your enclosure will affect the quality & quantity of the bass. Designed for use in SUV & sedan type vehicles, these enclosures offer you several mounting options. The vent opening in these enclosures can not be obstructed. At some frequencies most of the bass will come out of the vent. Therefore we recommend you leave at least four inches (10cm) 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 pertain to enclosures mounted in the vehicle as outlined in Figure 1.
If it is more convenient to mount the enclosure along a side wall, put the enclosure on the left side of the vehicle as outlined in Figure 2. This orientation will make the vent point toward the rear of the vehicle & will produce the most low bass output. Remember to leave at least four inches (10cm) of room between the enclosure & the back of the vehicle.
After determining the best mounting position, carefully check the areas where the mounting brackets will be placed. Make sure the mounting screws will not puncture the gas tank, brake lines, wiring, or interfere w/any mechanical parts on the underside of the mounting surface. Turn the enclosure upside-down, pre-drill the holes using a 7/64” (2.5mm) bit & 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" (2cm) from under the cabinet to allow a screw to easily pass through the bracket, securing the enclosure to the vehicle. See Figure 4.
Plug your subwoofer speaker wire into the terminals, using the red connector as positive & the black connector as negative. Hook the other end of the wire to your subwoofer amplifier in accordance with its owner's manual. w/the enclosure right side up, securely attach the enclosure 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. Sound Check: Poor bass response? Check the system phasing by reversing a speaker connection from positive to negative on the subwoofer channel; if the bass improves, then the subwoofer was out of phase in reference to the rest of the system.
