Kicker came to Car Toys stores across the country this summer and we are stoked. You audiophiles out there are probably already well aware of Kicker and all the awesome stuff they do. For those of you who aren’t, let us explain to you why they’re kind of a big deal.
Kicker is an innovator in the audio industry. The company started back in 1973, just two guys in a garage, hand-building professional speaker systems. Today, they are known for their cutting-edge designs and incredible sound.
Kicker’s fame has come primarily from the legendary Solo-Baric L7 subwoofer. This product was the world’s very first patented square subwoofer and changed the industry forever. Why is it so special? The square design means more cone area, more air displacement and, ultimately, more decibels than could be produced in a conventional round woofer. The surround is actually stitched to the cone in order to produce better durability without compromising the quality of the design.
Now let’s say you’re leasing or for some reason don’t want to alter the vehicle in any way, take a look at Soundgate. This product uses a multi-channel amplifier with digital signal processing (DSP) control, which manipulates the sound to ensure it’s at its best in the given environment. It basically does all of the work for you. Just plug it in. Looking for more bass? Add a subwoofer and you’re set.
