Our take on the Kicker 40PXIBT50.2 by Crutchfield's Dave Delamere
Tough and versatile
Kicker's 40PXIBT50.2 2-channel amp can add music to just about any vehicle with a 12-volt electrical system. This compact, water-resistant amp can be installed on many types of ATVs, motorcycles, tractors, and riding mowers — we even installed one in a cooler. For its small size, the 40PXIBT50.2 gives you up to 25 watts RMS per channel to drive a wide variety of speakers, including Kicker's PS52504 multipurpose speakers. You'll also get a pair of preamp outputs, in case you need another amp for a subwoofer or more speakers.
Even more adaptability
This little Kicker features built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming and an auxiliary input, so you can enjoy music from various devices. If you want to go wireless, you can stream your tunes from your compatible Bluetooth device or smartphone. You can also plug almost any player into the auxiliary input.
Don't worry about controlling your music from your player's touchscreen — the included back-lit wired remote lets you control your music, while your connected device can be conveniently tucked away. You can also charge various devices by using the 5-volt USB port included on the amplifier.
