KICKER® Partners with Subaru® for OEM High-Performance Audio Upgrades
STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® Performance Audio, a 30-year industry leader in mobile audio, announced today that it will partner with auto manufacturer Subaru® of America, Inc. to supply Subaru customers with original equipment (OE) upgrades in specific models.
The high-performance Subaru audio upgrades made by KICKER are compatible with all 2008-2011 Impreza™ sedans, Impreza WRX™ sedans, 2011 WRX STI™ sedans, and all 2008-2011 Impreza, Impreza WRX and WRX STI 5-door™ vehicles with navigation or non-navigation audio systems.
“KICKER is ecstatic to be included in Subaru’s plans going forward,” said Chuck Jones, KICKER Director of OEM. “We believe this fusion of progressing brands should create plenty of excitement in the showroom and on the road.” The audio system includes a 10-inch powered subwoofer in a molded enclosure made to fit in the trunk or cargo area of the specific model, leaving plenty of trunk cargo space available. The subwoofer is powered by an integrated 100-watt, high-efficiency digital amplifier that is tuned to specifically match the size of the enclosure. The result is deep, powerful bass from a small space, enhancing overall performance and accuracy system-wide. The amplifier connects into the existing Subaru audio system using a true plug-and-play wire harness.
The audio upgrade kits are now available through Subaru dealerships. The upgrade kit may either be installed at the factory port processing facility or at the dealership prior to delivery. MSRP on the subwoofer upgrade is $499.99.
KICKER has been providing high-quality aftermarket audio gear since 1980, with roots in performance sound equipment dating back to 1973. Known for legendary bass in mobile applications, KICKER is the manufacturer of the patented Solo-Baric® square technology in a subwoofer.
