Greatest Invention

Written By D, Framingham, MA on Thursday, July 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
So happy i found this! I would have hated to not be able to listen to music at times without so much bass. This allows me to have my friends come in the car, listen to music but be able to either bring down the bass a bit or fully down. So worth it!
Pros:
Love being able to control my bass
Cons:
Cant think of any!

Nice to have

Written By Greg P, Rockford, IL on Saturday, June 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had picked up a nice sub woofer and amp package for my car, but after installing it, I realized it was overkill. The control knob was a great addition for letting me tune down the sub when needed, but still crank it up a bit when I'm in the mood. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the supplied screws for mounting are kind of small, and mounting options in general are somewhat limited. I wish the design for the unit allowed it to be attached in different ways.
Pros:
Nice control, easy hook up
Cons:
Mounting options are somewhat limited

Pros:
Instant control on bass levels. Turn up when you want too, and down when you need too. Small Size. Cord length.

Remote bass

This little guy is great. After opening the box, I realized its much smaller than I thought it was going to be. A breeze to install and you're able to hid it anywhere.
Pros:
Small size, easy mounting

Must have accessory.

Written By Anonymous, Queen Creek AZ on Thursday, April 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If this is an option for your amp, I highly recommend it. I bought this as an after thought and I'm glad I did. I have complete control of how much bass in every song for my own liking. The install was a piece of cake. Just mount the dial where you want it and there is plenty of wire to reach your amp, and I have a crew max truck. Then just plug the other end in your amp. That's it.
Pros:
Inexpensive, easy to install. Dial in how much bass you want.
Cons:
Non come to mind

Great Knobs!

Written By JethroS, Los Alamos, NM on Monday, March 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This unit is great! I love having a remote gain. See Pro/Con's for 3 star rating.
Pros:
Absolutely love the firm 'click' between each setting. Plentiful settings between nothing and going to blow up the sub Small footprint with easy to 'snake' interconnect cable
Cons:
What's with this knob?! Why so tall?! Cannot readily remove the knob to flush mount - boo!

1 question already asked

I have a power acoustik amp and dual 12 in subs with illuminite. Will this switch work for the sub? [ Andrew  Jun 09, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Since that remote bass control is designed to work only with Kicker amps, it is calibrated as such but if the Power Acoustik amp has a 3.5mm minijack input for remote, the control should work. Some bass control modules use phone jacks for connectors. Obviously, if this is the case with your particular Power Acoustik amp, it won't work with it. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Jun 10, 2014 ]
