Big bass

This Kicker ZX300.1 mono subwoofer amplifier pumps your bass up loud and clear with up to 300 watts RMS of power. This sub amp runs reliably even when pushed hard, thanks to its heavy-duty internal components and the efficient cooling system it uses as it boosts your bass.

Works with almost any stereo

Kicker employs their Fail-Safe Integration Technology™ (FIT) to reject noise and stop any interference generated by your car's electronics, so you'll enjoy your music clean and pure. Speaker-level inputs make it simpler to hook this amp up to your factory system.

Bass controls

The steeply-sloped subsonic and low-pass filters keep the bass tight and up front in your car. A bass boost gives you even more kick, if you so desire. Be sure to get the optional wired remote level controller so you can crank up the level of fun from the front seat.

My system has plenty of power. Who needs an amp?

You might think you don't need an amp because you have a 400-watt system in your car, or because your new stereo puts out 50 watts a channel. But those are peak wattage ratings, which may boil down to 15 or 20 watts per channel, using the more realistic RMS rating. An amp sends your speakers the power they need to deliver your music with clarity and impact, whether you're using factory speakers or high-performance components. And low-frequency reproduction requires lots of power, so an amp is an absolute must if you're adding a sub to your system.

Controls

Gain: The rotary gain control is continuously variable from 125 mV to 5 V when the Input Sensitivity switch is set to Low and 250 mV to 10 V when the Input Sensitivity switch is set to High.

Crossover: The crossover can be set to low-pass or off (full-range). The crossover point is fixed at 80 Hz and the slope is 24dB per octave.

Auto Turn-on Switch: The amp offers three automatic turn-on modes; select from:

  • +12V: connect a wire from the remote turn-on lead from your source unit to the REM terminal on the amplifier; this is the preferred turn-on method
  • DC Offset: turns the amp on when a 6-volt DC offset is detected at the high-level speaker inputs when the source unit is turned on
  • Audio: detects the incoming audio signal from your source unit and automatically turns the amp on; will not work if the input gain control is not set properly

Bass Boost: The bass boost circuit provides a 12 dB boost at 40Hz. The bass boost can be turned off if you prefer.

ZXRC Remote Bass Control: The bass output level can be controlled remotely using an optional wired remote bass control (item number 20610ZXRC, sold separately).

Connections

  • +12V (power): set screw terminal

Great power when you need it

Written By Jeff S, Athens, TN on Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this amp which is powering the Boston Acoustics G110PD. It sounds much better now in my '02 Rodeo.

Pros: Brand name, price and reliability all at the same time. You can't go wrong with that.
