About the Kicker 46KISLOAD4

Ensure signal flow

Factory stereo systems are getting smarter and smarter these days — which unfortunately makes adding aftermarket amplifiers and processors more difficult. Often, the most convenient place to get audio signal is from a factory amplifier's output, which shuts down or distorts when the speakers are disconnected. Kicker's KISLOAD4 smart radio interface solves this issue by providing the resistive load the amp needs to operate properly, and passing the signal along without any distortion or loss of power.

High power

The KISLOAD4 can handle up to 100 watts RMS of power per channel, so it'll work well with a high-powered factory amp. Just make sure your line-output converter or your amplifier's speaker-level input can also handle that amount of power. Warranty: 1 year.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Kicker KISLOAD4 Smart-Radio Interface let you add an aftermarket 4-channel amplifier to a factory sound system. Many modern factory radios feature built-in protection circuits that will mute the audio outputs if the factory speakers are removed. The KISLOAD4 has been designed to generate a load (25Ω) to stabilize the signal from the factory system and provide the best possible audio.

Connection: The KISLOAD4 Smart-Radio Interface gets wired in between the output of the factory radio or amplifier and the input of the new amplifier, accepting up to 20V (100W) of input signal. Two 11" harnesses provide 4 channels of signal input and output for running to a 4-channel amplifier. If installing a 2-channel or mono amp, the KISLOAD2 (sold separately) will be required.

Q
Can I use this to replace factory amp? 2005 trailblazer. Base system. I have an after market android deck. I stopped getting sound. Think the factory amp fried?

That piece by itself is not going to replace the factory amp - it doesn't have any built-in power. If you have already replaced the factory radio, you can add an aftermarket amp via the RCA preamp outputs on your radio. You might need to re-wire/ re-locate the speaker wire. If you have questions about which amp, or any other details, you can connect with one of our friendly product advisors here: https://www.crutchfield.com/I-rET1c290/S-SUliZgSTXG7/support/ContactUs.aspx
