KICKER Performance Audio reveals its newest line of KXM-Series Marine Amplifiers, six powerful, weather-resistant amplifiers which will be available at Authorized KICKER Dealers in-store and online by late first quarter.
The KXM-Series Amplifier line showcases several new features, the first of which is one-Ohm stability on the KXMA1200.1 mono amp, as well as the subwoofer section of the KXMA800.5 five-channel amp. The improvement allows for even more complex subwoofer configurations.
The mono and five-channel amplifiers are also equipped with KickEQ+™ variable, 18dB/octave bass boost, plus a variable 24dB subsonic filter with adjustable frequency control, and a full-range RCA pass-through for easy system expansion.
The new KXARC™ wireless Bluetooth LE® remote will come standard with the KXMA.1 and the KXMA.5 amplifiers, and it will offer a convenient way to monitor and change vital controls on the amplifier without the need for long wire runs between the amp and controller. Features like gain, bass boost, SHOCwave™ bass restoration levels and signal clip are now easily monitored from anywhere on the boat. A single remote will control as many as four KXM-Series mono or five-channel amps simultaneously.
KXM-Series Full-Range Amps feature a massive, eight-channel model for amazing configuration versatility. At 100 watts per channel at 2 Ohms, the KXMA.8 supplies Class-D amplification for the best in efficiency, flexibility and sound quality without draining the boat’s battery.
All KXM-Series Amplifier also include a special gain control with a built-in clip indication light, making amplifier optimization easier than ever before. KICKER has also integrated a DSP-controlled preamp for superior sound quality, and updated FIT2™ (Fail-safe Integration Technology) into the amplifiers to ensure a flexible, noise-free signal from virtually any receiver – without the additional expense of a line-out converter.
All KXM-Series Amplifiers are built specifically for the rigors of life on the water. The side-mounted acoustic controls are easily accessed even under a seat or on top of an enclosure, and shielded by a gasket-sealed door for protection from the elements. In addition to a moisture-deterring conformal coating on the circuit boards, all power connections are ABYC/NMMA compliant. Rust-proof, stainless-steel installation hardware is also included.
KICKER Performance Audio products, a division of Stillwater Designs and Audio, Inc.®, are available for the mobile and home audio aftermarket at authorized retailers worldwide, and also as Original Equipment for automobile manufacturers.
