Kicker's ZXRC Remote Bass Control lets you adjust the level of your Kicker amplifier from the front seat, so you can keep the thumping under control, or turn it up to 11 when you want to show off. When you activate the amp's low-pass filter for a subwoofer, the ZXRC takes control over the the amp's volume, so you can make fingertip adjustments to your sub's level.

The ZXRC remote works with any Kicker IX, ZX, DX, or ZXM amplifier with a remote control jack. (Some of these already come with a ZXRC remote, so you can use this remote as a replacement for a lost or broken one.) The ZXRC will only control the rear channels of 4-channel amps.

Product Highlights:

  • remote bass level control for Kicker IX, ZX, DX, or ZXM amplifiers
  • 20' remote cable and mounting hardware included
  • dimensions: 2-1/4"W x 1-1/4"H x 2-3/8"D
  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Product Research


Overview: The ZXRC Remote Bass Control allows you to control the bass output level of the amplifier from the front of the vehicle. The crossover on your IX, ZX, DX, or ZXM amplifier must be set to low pass for the ZXRC to function. The ZXRC controls the AMP2 channel of 4-channel amplifiers. The wired remote comes with a bracket to mount it under the dash. The supplied 16' cable, with RJ-25 phone plugs at each end, connects the remote to the amplifier.

Note: The Remote Bass Control measures approximately 2-1/4" wide x 1-1/4" high x 1.75" deep (2-3/8" deep including the knob and wiring).

Great product. I have two 15's L7s and this control fine tunes my bass level seamlessly between songs and types of music. It's very responsive and really takes my system to the next level. Install took 5 minutes and its super simple.

Pros: Easy of use.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the perfect addition to any kicker amplifier. Small and compact fits in small spaces and doesn't get in the way

Cons: None yet.

Kicker ZXRC Remote Bass Control

Written By rich w, missouri on Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a simple little thing. I didn't even know I needed one until I hooked it up. Now making slight adjustments when switching from hip hop to country to classic rock is way easier than going into the controls on the head unit itself!

Pros: Ease of hookup

Cons: It is small but I wish it was smaller so I could hide it easier. I may dissect it and do a custom install.

Kicker bass knob

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product! Adjusting the level of bass for every song is perfect.

Pros: Controllability. Installation.

Does not Fit Products Listed

Written By Matt, Texas on Saturday, August 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product does not fit the DX series amp which is listed under the specs. It has the incorrect plug, a phone jack style rather than the 3.5 millimeter jack style required for the dx series amp.

Crutchfield response on Wednesday, August 06, 2014 After receiving this review we followed up with the customer. It turns out that he has the newer DXA series amp, which does indeed use a 3.5mm plug. However, the older DX series amps utilize the phone jack style connection of this unit.

Makes life so much easier

Written By Jeff04444, Bangor, ME on Sunday, July 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Makes life so much easier when adjusting the bass levels. Some songs require more, while others require a little less.

Pros: Easily adjust bass levels for when others get into your vehicles, an don't like it as loud

Cons: NONE

Kicker Remote Bass Control....YOU NEED THIS!!!

Written By Daniel, Charlotte, NC on Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is just a basic knob control for your amp but you absolutely need it. It gives you instant control of your bass levels. If you get one you will wonder how you ever made it without one.

Pros: Instant Bass Control

Cons: None that I have found

Kicker ZXRC works exactly as it shoul

Written By MS, Lakewood Ranch, FL on Sunday, February 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Item is standard on larger amps but I didnt need that much power so had to be the bass knob as an option for my Kicker DX250.1. It preforms exactly as it should, there is really not much to do as far as installation. Good price.

Pros: Always better to buy optional equipment adds made by same manufacturer so there is no issue with connectivity or performance.

Cons: Item comes standard with the other models but has to be purchased separately for model I chose

Written By ingo john, indianapolis, in on Monday, October 28, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hooked this up on an a kicker zx250.1 amp pushing a kicker comp 10 and am very happy with the results I listen to a wide variety of music and also a lot of talk radio so it is very nice and easy to be able to just reach down and twist a small knob to adjust how much bass I want for whatever I am listening to at the moment. It is a must have for any audiophile.

Pros: small easy to install easy to use

Cons: none

Great remote!!

Must Have!

Written By Pacman112, Delaware on Sunday, September 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With the varying sound quality delivery of the many available media types today, this is a must have accessory for bass management.

Pros: Plug and play

Cons: None

best accessory ever

Written By the hammer, altus,ok on Wednesday, June 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love this thing kicker makes great products and this is one of them. I have it installed in the adapter bracket on my radio for easy access. I've seen people wire up knobs for the same purpose but this is a lot easier just plug in the amp then run the wires mount and done.

Pros: easy to install, controls bass levels, long cord, mounting hardware included.

Cons: wish it was backlight so I could see it at night and if you install in a small space you may have to make cosmetic changes.

Must Have for Quick Output Adjustments

Written By Keith, Citrus Heights, CA on Monday, March 25, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You might be thinking, "eh - it's just a volume nob - right?". Well - you're right. But this is a must have because it gives you the control that you want right at your fingertips. I was able to mount this right under my armrest in a nook in the console where my hand nauturally falls while I am driving. Because of this, I can tune the bass on the fly for every song I am listening to without taking my eyes off of the road. If you're like me and listen to a lot of different types of music (everything from Rap, Country, and Jazz) than this is a must have. Yes my reciever has an adjustable sub out, but it takes a click, two turns, another click, another turn.... you get the idea - too slow and too much effort. As a result, I stopped adjusting the bass and my SQ suffered with certain songs. Now that I can adjust the output so easily, I am able to dial in the right amount of bass for every song which actually makes my music sound better because it keeps everything balanced!

This is well worth the cost - get it!!!

Great addition to amp

Written By tbone223, huntsville al on Saturday, October 27, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The remote control unit is a great addition to this amp. I used it for years on my previous kicker amp and it allowed me to control the amount of bass i wanted for different occasions.

Pros: Small and compact. Easily mounted under your dash or in a remote location that might be a tight fit.

Cons: This unit used to come with the previous version of the Kicker amps all the way down to the 300 watt unit. So in my opinion the only con is that you have to pay extra for it when it used to come with the amps.
