Our take on the Kicker KMLC

Multi-color management

This slim, compact remote control makes it easy to get the look you like on your LED-equipped Kicker marine speakers and subs. Use it to choose from 20 bright, brilliant colors, or change things up with 19 dynamic modes, including adjustable brightness, fade, speed/strobe and auto save. Warranty: 1 year

Works as described. I wish I could get a back lit version for night use.

good price for RGB LED controller

Isaac from Mosinee, WI on 9/10/2018

This is a good deal for a name brand/warrantied LED controller. It's a common positive unit, with 3 varying grounds to control color. You can use it of course with the Kicker LED grills, but also any RGB LED strips that use a common +. Very handy, very small. The remote is a little cheap feeling, but seems to work well. Can use it indoors, all over.. so many possibilities.

Pros: price, warranty, name brand, many uses

Cons: remote feels cheap

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you have the speakers, get the remote. I was just going to hook them up to glow just blue to match my boat but I'm glad I got the remote. It has numerous features that are really neat.

Pros: Great features, buy it you'll be glad you did

Cons: It involves a good bit of wiring to get all the features but it is definitely worth it

Awesome Add on!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome product and a must have if you use the Kicker speakers with the LEDs built in. Remote works great, easy to hook up. I use the remote for 4 speakers I installed in an ice chest radio. Have had many compliments about the different modes of the lights. The possibilities are endless.

Pros: Easy to use Easy to install Good range Eye catcher

Cons: None

Kicker KMLC--RF Remote for Speakers with LED Lights

BJ from Newburgh, IN on 7/16/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fantastic RF remote control of Kicker speakers with LED lights. Turns single 1-Color hard wired LEDs into a controllable show of unlimited colors & tempos. Light show can be controlled independently without stereo head unit power.

Pros: Tiny RF remote is amazing! Easier to install the remote, than to wire LEDs without it. Create mesmerizing light shows with or without the stereo.

Cons: This will soon signal the end of non-lighted speakers.


Hands-on research

Wiring: If only using only one Kicker LED speaker, subwoofer, or grille, the harness with the in-line RF receiver will plug directly into the harness attached to the speaker. If using more than one speaker, subwoofer, or grille (up to 12 can be used with a single RF receiver), both included harnesses are used and spliced to all the speakers.

Hi Zack !!!!! I have not installed yet 6 Kicker KMLC 8" and remote I bought. I am doing it after 25TH of december. It does flash with the beat of the music and some other modes. I took a look in youtube to seem them works. Sound is excellent if you compare with 2 and ways speaker, but not 4 and 5 way speaker. I have try Polk 2way , Infinity 2way, and Kicker sound and high are superior. Kicker 8" speaker has deeper bass than 6' speakers I just mentioned. Hope this help for now, or askme again after the 25th. Al. [ ALVIN  Dec 16, 2014 ]
