For the first time in Kicker history they have 5 lines of amplifiers that have been rolled out for 2010. The Warhorse remains unchanged while the ZX series amplifiers have been redone and brought back with slimmer chassis and a decal ready design. The new IX and DX series amplifiers boast extremely energy efficient class D designs and flat grey chassis also ready for decal application. Let’s take a look at a breakdown of KICKER’s main amplifiers for 2010:
IX-Series amplifiers use high-efficiency class D technology to deliver immense power from a super-small footprint. The IX amplifier chassis are the smallest ever developed by KICKER engineers. Three supreme models are available; two mono subwoofer amplifiers and one four-channel amplifier make up the IX line. The environmentally conscious will appreciate the small footprint, low weight to power ratio and stackable design which increases cargo space and decreases fuel consumption. The simplicity of the IX amplifiers attracts more do-it-yourselfers and installers because all connections are located on one end, while the user controls are on the other. For those audiophiles, KICKER included a muting circuit that eliminates any worthless audio residue that might find its way in the lines. To finish everything up, the IX chassis feature a tapered blue illuminated model badge to let everyone know you aren’t playing around.
ZX-Series amplifiers have stood the test of time and continually provide trouble-free amplification and reliability that knows no bounds. The ZX lineup features subwoofer mono, two-channel, four-channel, and a five-channel hybrid amplifier to satisfy anyone’s craving for great sound. The ZX mono subwoofer amplifiers range from 300 to 2500-plus watts so everyone can tame their inner bass head. Multi-channel amplifiers give audiophiles full control of their speakers with variable high and low pass crossovers. Optional endcaps are available for all ZX amplifier models as well as vinyl skins for complete customization. Kickers ZX-Series amplifiers still offer the same trouble free amplification we have grown to love from previous models, just in a newer design.
DX-Series amplifiers are high-performance amplifiers that simply provide reliable power at an affordable price. The monoblock subwoofer DX amplifier is stable at one ohm allowing it to pound any woofer. The subwoofer amplifiers offer a variable high-pass subsonic filter to keep unwanted lower frequencies away from your subs, preventing damage and distortion. A choice of three automatic turn-on modes provides extensive flexibility on all of the DX series amplifiers. The multi-channel amps come with a bass boost centered around 40 Hz should you decide to run subwoofers instead of standard speakers. For ultimate flexibility, reliability and power handling the DX series amplifiers offer allot of features for everyone.
All of our Kicker amplifiers are backed by a 2-year Manufactures warranty. Kicker is so confident in their product that they will provide an additional one-year extension to the warranty with the purchase of a qualifying Kicker amp kit at the time you purchase an amplifier. For trouble free amplification, legendary bass, and audiophile sound quality, KICKER is right every time and every configuration.
