Our take on the Kicker iK350

by Ralph Graves
Kicker

Don't let its size fool you. The compact Kicker iK350 delivers big, beefy sound from your iPod or iPhone, thanks to its stereo speakers with separate woofers and tweeters. A square 4-1/2" passive radiator reinforces the low frequencies for strong bass.

The system comes with an integrated carry handle, so it's easy to move from room to room. A magnetic storage compartment holds the iK350's remote securely in place for transport. The remote lets you adjust the system's volume, as well as operate basic functions on your docked iPod, such as play, pause, and skip track.

Use the line-level stereo output to connect the iK350 to another audio system, such as your home theater setup. A composite video output lets you display your docked iPod's videos and photos on a connected TV. An auxiliary input lets you hook up another audio source, such as a portable CD player or MP3 player for even more listening options.

Kicker iK350

Written By Jim, Englewood, CO on Friday, July 06, 2012
 
Great sound! Never had problems with the plug in. Sometimes need to restart iPod to connect with dock. Battery life is about 2.5 hours initially, after using for several months the battery does not take a charge. Battery is way over priced for how long it lasts.
Pros:
Sound is great, Portable
Cons:
Battery is the the downfall

Great system, confusing messages

Written By Russ in WY, Wyoming on Monday, February 07, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
When I first got this system as a gift, my iPod Touch Gen 3 came up with a message saying this device did not support my iPod. Nuts! So, I returned it and I ordered the one from Crutchfield because the description said it worked with gen 3 models. I got the unit and it was identical to the one I had returned before. However, this time I tried it out a little further and it works great. From time to time, I do get the message saying it doesn't support my iPod, but it still works.

This system sounds great, hands down. If you're looking for a simple iPod speaker system without any frills, this is it. I've even hooked it up to a dvd player (with the earphone jack adapter) to watch movies and it worked great. It's compact enough to sit on the shelf and not really be in the way, but it puts out some serious sound.

Not Kicker's best work

Written By DavidB, WA on Monday, January 10, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've owned many Kicker car stereo products in the past so I decided to try out a Kicker home product to buy as a gift. My expectations were far from met on this product. Kicker has completely failed to live up to its name. The sound is barely average. The highs aren't great and the bass is terrible. The "sub" in the back of the unit is a passive woofer so it barely changes the bass. It's more there for looks.

I'm seriously considering returning this product and getting another brand to give as a gift. I'm not sure how other people have given this and similar Kicker home products a good rating because this product performs the same as a cheap brand product.

If you are looking for a unit to simply play music from an ipod and you don't really care about the sound, this would be the way you would want to drop some money.

Out of the Box Simplicity/Exceptional Sound

Written By Jim, New Port Richey, FL on Tuesday, December 22, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so for this product. Right out of the box you
have perfection. Plug your Ipod in, power up and get ready to be blown away. Crisp
highs, non-distorted bass, and great mids. I can't find a negative. My remote works in
about a 10-12 ft range and will do everything. There are bass and treble adjustments,
volume, fast forward, skip, mute etc that control what your Ipod does. All important, it
sounds great at low volume levels as well as high. Kicker did it up right. Small but
mighty. I would recommend this to anyone.
