Overview

Our take on the Kicker KX2

Kicker's KX2 electronic crossover is designed for 2-way systems (in which highs and lows are amplified separately). You can adjust the high- and low-pass crossovers from 40 to 300 Hz (18 dB per octave) to maximize the performance of your separate components. The crossover accepts both preamp- and speaker-level inputs, and output can be adjusted up to 5 volts for low system noise.

Why did you buy this?

already own one and very satisfied. [ james  Feb 09, 2017 ]

Assuming your stereo and/or amplifier do not offer the crossovers or the crossosver settingsyou want to use, sure, you can add the Kicker Active model in-line on the RCA connections between the stereo and amplifier. The Kicker can also boost the pre-amp signal level up to 5 volts so, if you have a weak signal from your stereo's pre-amp outputs, you'll get better performance from your amp and speakers when you add the active crossover. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Feb 12, 2016 ]  Staff
