Efficient and optimized for low-impedance subs

The PX200.1 employs Kicker's Direct Amp Technology™, using the vehicle's electrical system as its power supply so this bantamweight amp will run cool even while you're pushing it hard and loud. Kicker recommends the PX200.1 for driving one or two CompVT 6.5" 1-ohm subwoofers.

Product Research

Features

Overview: PX series amplifiers are designed for motorized vehicles with small battery/charging systems; Kicker's new Direct Amp Technology uses the vehicle's charging system as its power supply, offering 90-percent efficiency. As a result, the PX200.1 draws a maximum of less than 15 amps and outputs solid power without taxing the limited charging capacity found on motorcycles, utility or other vehicles. Little ventilation is required and with its small footprint, the PX200.1 can be installed in motorcycle saddle bags or fairings, glove compartments, or other small spaces.

Power Output: The PX200.1 is a mono amplifier designed to power one or two CVT651 1Ω, 6-3/4" subwoofers. The power output is 100 watts RMS at 1Ω (<1% THD+N) and 200 watts RMS at 0.5Ω (< 10% THD+N).

Controls: The controls are under a rubber cover:

  • Low Pass Crossover: 100 Hz or 250 Hz; low pass crossover cannot be bypassed
  • Bass Boost: on/off; 6 dB boost centered at 60 Hz
  • Input Level: select high (speaker level) or low (line level)
  • Auto Turn-on: select 12V (amp turns on when +12 volts is applied to the remote wire in the harness) or DC (amp turns on when a 6 volt surge is detected from a speaker level source)
  • Gain: rotary knob; adjust to match the output of the source unit

Wiring: All the wiring connections are in one Molex plug (power, ground, remote turn-on, speaker output, RCA input).

Speaker Level Input: When connecting a speaker level source, cut the RCA plugs off and splice into the remaining wire. If you prefer not cutting the RCA plugs off, use the Kicker KiSL speaker level to RCA adapter (item number 206KiSL, sold separately).

Differential Input: The differential input circuit reduces the likelihood of picking up any engine noise.

Subsonic Filter: The PX200.1 includes a 24 dB/octave subsonic filter, fixed at 40 hertz.

Weather Resistant: The PX Amps are weather-resistant, using a conformal-coated circuit board for protection against the elements. They also include stainless-steel mounting hardware.

Customer Q&A

Q
Will this amp work with a JL Audio M770-CCX-CG-WH with a built in crossover for the tweeter?
[ Derek  Jul 30, 2015 ]

A
I'm not sure. I have it hooked up to a very small sub (4") using the built in low pass filter. It is not very powerful but I do not know whether it is the amp or just the fact I have such a small sub. It does have the capability to do what you are asking. I'm just not sure if it will be powerful enough.
[ JOSHUA  Jul 31, 2015 ]
A
Yes the Kicker 12PX200.1 should work well with the JL M770. I installed the speakers in my boat cockpit and they sound great. Easy install. The cross over for the tweeter just plugs into the speaker. There is a connection for the sub woofer if you care to use it or run the sub off it's own amp.
[ David  Jul 31, 2015 ]
A
Not correctly. It is a single Channel amplifier. I would recommend running the small JL 2 or 4 Channel Marine amplifiers. Or the clarion 4 Channel "power pack".
