Kicker 12CXRC Remote Bass Control

Written By Joe, Texas on Monday, February 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome unit. Able to control when I want to hear the bass and tune it to different songs. Took mine apart and mounted on dash to make it easily accessible. Looks almost like it came from the factory.

Pros: Great addition to any system.

Cons: None

Very Pleased!!

Written By Rory i., Herman, MN on Thursday, February 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordering this product was very easy! Mounting it, and running the cord was even easier! It came with, I think an 18 foot cord, and the knob system, and two screws. Couldn't be happier, it's highly convenient to control the output of your amp and get a better boom going.

Pros: Simple, small, easy to install, highly convenient.

Cons: None.

It works and easy to install

Pros: I Like...

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!

Optional remote adjuster for the amp. Works wonderfully and instantly.

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

Awesome Remote!

Written By Andrew M, Pataskala, OH on Monday, June 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome remote for Kicker CX series amplifiers. Small design with easy mounting options. Dial in perfect bass at the touch of a dial.

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

Cons: Nothing

Remote bass

Written By Dave y, Key west on Sunday, May 18, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: Nothing

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 Product

Pros: More conpact then the older remote knobs for amp control by kicker.

Cons: None

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!

Great to Have

This remote works great, different songs sound better with different amounts of bass so its nice to have that control on your dash.
