KICKER® DX-Series Amplifiers New-for-2010

Kicker DX1000.1 Monoblock 

STILLWATER, USA – New-for-2010 KICKER® DX-Series Amplifiers simply provide reliable, relentless power, and make it affordable for those who seek top features in a high-performance car audio or multimedia system. An additional, often overlooked benefit is that each individual KICKER Amplifier’s actual power always exceeds its rated power, as documented inside the carton.

A pair of DX.1 Mono-Channel Subwoofer Amplifiers supply all the necessary features expected from high-power, monoblock amplifiers that pulverize subwoofers with energy-saving, Class D power, including the ability to be stable under loads as low as one Ohm. DX Sub Amps are rated at 1,000 watts or 500 watts (1 Ohm at 14.4V), offering an 18dB/octave low-pass electronic crossover variable from 50 to 200 hertz. It also includes an 18dB/octave, high-pass subsonic filter variable from 10 to 30 hertz. They provide +9dB (or 0dB) of bass boost centered at 40 hertz, and include the convenient, mountable ZXRC remote for bass control from the dash.
