Our take on the Kicker 12CXRC Remote Bass Control

Control the level of bass

Kicker's 12CXRC Remote Bass Control lets you adjust the level of your CX Series amplifier from the front seat, so you can crank up the bass when you want to, or tone it down when you have to.

A no-brainer, just reach over and tapping through several steps to find "Sub Woofer Level" and going through settings changes every time your music changes from one genre to the next.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Because it didn't come with the amp I ordered yesterday from crutchfield [ brian  Feb 16, 2016 ]
convenience of control. [ thomas  Feb 07, 2016 ]
My amp will be mounted under the center console in my Ford Expedition and won't be easily accessible after I install it. This seemed like a great way to control the bass level without having to constantly change the settings in my head unit. [ JEFF  Jan 31, 2016 ]
To get the most out of my kicker Dxa 250 [ Caleb  Jan 29, 2016 ]
like to be able to adjust my base level from the drivers seat . [ jimmy  Jan 06, 2016 ]
It wasn't included with the amplifier, and it adds a convenient way to control bass level in the drivers seat. [ Tim  Jan 04, 2016 ]
Buying a sub amp without a bass control is like buying a bicycle without handlebars. Need to be able to tailor the bass gain specific to music listening. [ Michael  Dec 29, 2015 ]
It works with the amplifier I have [ Shannon  Dec 24, 2015 ]
Controls bass for Kicker amp. [ Troy  Dec 16, 2015 ]

Versatility [ Donald  Dec 14, 2015 ]
Good ratings! [ Phillip  Dec 14, 2015 ]

1 question already asked

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Since that remote bass control is designed to work only with Kicker amps, it is calibrated as such but if the Power Acoustik amp has a 3.5mm minijack input for remote, the control should work. Some bass control modules use phone jacks for connectors. Obviously, if this is the case with your particular Power Acoustik amp, it won't work with it. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jun 10, 2014 ]  Staff
