Kicker has long been associated with manufacturing quality amplifiers that are rock solid and can stand the time of test in pretty much any car audio environment. Last year, they shocked the car audio industry by introducing an amplifier series that could yield high amounts of clean underrated Kicker power output with the chassis width and length of a standard sheet of paper. When Kicker released their prototype IX Monoblock and 4-Channel amplifiers the world was eager to see how they would perform in their own applications. One year later and the unmistakable success of the Kicker IX amplifiers have inspired the launch of an entire new line-up of Full Range Class D, super efficient compact IX amplifiers, including new multi-channels and stereo models.
The new Kicker IX amplifiers will retain all of the features that made the IX Amplifier line-up last year so successful. These features include the High-efficiency Class-D power that allows these amplifiers to not only be one of the smallest amplifiers available on the market, but the main benefit for the high efficiency is so customers can load up a small vehicle with over 2000 watts of RMS power from IX amplifiers and not even have to upgrade the alternator or any batteries!
The new features introduced for the 2011 IX amplifiers is the ability to use FIT (Fail-Safe Integration Technology) for significant noise reduction and compatibility with any factory radio. Also new to the line-up is the hybrid IX-Series of multi-channel amplifiers giving the listener flexibility for multiple system choices. Brand new to the 2011 Kicker IX Amp lineup is a new 5-Channel amplifier to allow for running an entire system on one amplifier. Other new option in the line-up is the IX500.2 stereo 2-channel amplifier for diversity among the IX amplifier lineup. The new demand in car audio is super-small amplifiers and Kicker is working to make sure theirs is the also super efficient for running some awesome systems!
