Does this control level/gain or bass boost?
[ Massivecwscion  Jan 05, 2019 ]

It controls your bass. Songs nowadays differ in digital format with less bass or too much bass. This control is a nifty must!
[ Ramon  Jan 05, 2019 ]
Bass boost
[ derek  Jan 05, 2019 ]
Gives you the ability to lower bass input or increase it. More thump turn it up, less thump turn it down! I like the control it gives me over my bass!
[ ZIAD  Jan 05, 2019 ]
Can this control 2 amps if a spliter for the cable is used?
[ Gennaro  Nov 16, 2018 ]

[ jose  Nov 16, 2018 ]

Are you able to removed the "dash-mount" piece surrounding the boss knob and flush mount it?
[ Chris  Feb 02, 2018 ]
3 answers
I wouldn't try it. It's easy enough just to mount in on a trim piece of ur car & looks fine. Keep in mind there will be a wire connected to the back of it. But the knob is worth the purchase anyways.
[ Zachary Ryan  Feb 02, 2018 ]
Yes. That is how I have it installed in my '02 Chevy Silverado. I did not install it myself though. I had Custom Sounds install it for me at the time they installed the amp for my subs. It works great!
[ Paul David  Feb 02, 2018 ]
I couldn't answer that. I didn't try
[ james  Feb 02, 2018 ]
does this version of the remote work with the discontinued Kicker 12CX600.1? the older version of the remote was compatible.

I use kicker 43cxa3001 amp works fine with external remote volume control 206cxarc
[ MARIANO  Nov 15, 2016 ]
Yes it does, but you should know I would call it more of a volume knob than a bass boost. if your turn it down it lowers the bass all the way instead of just the bass boost. if you turn it up all the way it begins to clip.
[ Felix  Nov 15, 2016 ]
I have no clue. I would recommend looking this item up on the Kicker website to see if it is compatible or not. They should have all the details you would need to confirm.
[ Paul David  Nov 14, 2016 ]
It should match up. Only thing that connects to it is telephone cord. As long as the amp has that connection
[ james  Nov 14, 2016 ]
Does this only plug into the amp or do you have to plug this into the amp and stereo?
[ Ryan  Jul 30, 2016 ]
1 answer
Thanks for your question. The remote plugs directly into the amp, no need to connect anywhere else. Hope that helps.
