Kicker's 12CXRC Remote Bass Control lets you adjust the level of your CX Series amplifier from the front seat, so you can crank up the bass when you want to, or tone it down when you have to.
Sub level control/adjustment is a must. Depending on the genres of music and source, the sub can, and often, over shadows the balanced mids & highs. This level input solves the problem. Works great. Adjustments are very minute so it is easy to dail in.
Pros: Works great.
Works as described easy to use, nice long cable
Pros: Simple to install. Easy to turn the bass down when you don't want it.
I was able to adjust my dials on my amp and then be able to completely control my amp from the front without messing with my amp ever again. This has a huge range on how loud I want my amp and subs to be. I can go from not bass at all to rattling the crap out of my 2014 Ford Fusion. I have all this hooked into a stock radio and it sounds amazing. I would definitely add this to your setup if you have a CX Kicker Amp.
You need this if you have a kicker amp
Pros: You need this if you listen to all kinds of music !! You can tune the bass in seconds as needed !!
Cons: None except they dont come with the amp
This product was easy to install and came with plenty of wire to run from my dash to the backseat of my truck.
Pros: Plenty of excess cable
Quick and easy amp adjustment. Perfect if you listen to different types of music at different levels.
Pros: Easily adjustable.
Cons: Wish it had more mounting options.
Awesome bass knob for a great price!! would recommend
Pros: bass control, mounting hardware included.
No issues and works well. Does small increments for a lot of control
Pros: Good build quality and works perfect
Cons: Should come free with kicker amps
A must have. Can turn up or down the sub
This is a must have! You can adjust the bass easily.
Pros: Great feature
If you have subs and listen to different genres of music, this is a must have. Some songs sound better with extra bass while others don't. This allows you to adjust the bass output if the amp according to what song you are listening to without having to actually get out and manually adjust it on the amp it's self.
Pros: Small, plug and play makes for easy installation, comes with everything you need, easy to follow instructions.
Controls Bass, Easily
does the job for what it is.
Pros: easy installation. comes with mounting hardware but I used double sided tape instead.
Cons: none really. could be free lol. but it wasn't a bad price.
Use the bass remote to dial in on different songs, I love it...
Pros: Easy access to adjust bass.
Cons: None so far.
Great for if you listen to all types of music
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.
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.
It works and easy to install
Pros: I Like...
Cons: Should have been included (free) w/ the purchase of the amp.
Must get, easy to change amount of bass you want depending on song. Super compact and easy to use, worth the money!
Pros: Small, easy use, must get.
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!
This is a cool product and works really good!!!
Pros: Small and works really well
Optional remote adjuster for the amp. Works wonderfully and instantly.
Pros: Instant adjustment, plenty of steps from 0-100% gain, very small, mounts well.
Cons: Wireless would be nice.
Works as advertised.
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 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.
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
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
Works great with the new Kicker 600.1 amplifier that is installed In my 2014 Dodge Ram.
Pros: More conpact then the older remote knobs for amp control by kicker.
Very compact unit for controlling output of the amp
Pros: Very compact. Easy install
Works well and installed perfectly into my 86' s10. No complaints.
Pros: Solid feel
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!
This remote works great, different songs sound better with different amounts of bass so its nice to have that control on your dash.
it works,on the fly bass.
Pros: easy to installed
Overview: The CXRC Remote Bass Control allows you to control the bass output level of select Kicker CX series amplifiers from the front of the vehicle. The CXRC controls the mono CX amps and the sub channel of the CX600.5 5-channel amp. The wired remote has an integral bracket to mount it under the dash. The supplied 16' cable, with 3.5mm stereo mini-plugs on each end, connects the remote to the amplifier.

convenience of control. [ thomas Feb 07, 2016 ]
My amp will be mounted under the center console in my Ford Expedition and won't be easily accessible after I install it. This seemed like a great way to control the bass level without having to constantly change the settings in my head unit. [ JEFF Jan 31, 2016 ]

It wasn't included with the amplifier, and it adds a convenient way to control bass level in the drivers seat. [ Tim Jan 04, 2016 ]
Buying a sub amp without a bass control is like buying a bicycle without handlebars. Need to be able to tailor the bass gain specific to music listening. [ Michael Dec 29, 2015 ]
It works with the amplifier I have [ Shannon Dec 24, 2015 ]

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 Jun 10, 2014 ] Staff
