Utilizing their immense knowledge of elite audio design and technology, engineers from our Home and Personal Audio division raised the bar yet again with the acoustically vibrant Amphitheater™ High-Performance Audio System.
The Amphitheater is the first KICKER docking system to certifiably work with iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® media players. It is also the first that enables users to download the free iTunes® KickStart™ app which features complete audio customization, social-media integration and an alarm clock, among other attributes.
Resembling the open-air musical venue for which it’s named, the 50-watt Amphitheater delivers rich, live-performance sound and legendary KICKER bass response with its 6-inch, signature-square reflex subwoofer and powerful internal amplifier with digital signal processing. With stunning 5-inch mid-bass speakers and 3/4-inch, silk-dome tweeters, music is instantly brought to life. The Amphitheater’s overall sound is the result of four years of precise tuning in KICKER’s acoustic labs on its critically acclaimed predecessor, the iKick501 Docking System, which earned the accolade “Best iPhone/iPod Speaker Dock” in About.com’s 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards.
The convenient, flexible audio system includes a USB port for charging external devices and an auxiliary-input for universal media connection. A status LED illuminates to indicate current function and command. It also utilizes an ergonomic remote control to fine-tune music by adjusting bass and treble functions, as well as to help navigate with ease through the Amphitheater system menu and iPod/iPhone menus. Other remote options include skip-forward and back, fast-forward and back, play and pause, volume, mute, and power on/off selections.
Completely customizing tunes on the Amphitheater is made easy with the downloadable KickStart app, which features an 8-band equalizer and spatialization selection for sound control, the option to load and save sound presets, and the ability to wake to music with an integrated alarm. Additionally, the app incorporates a night-mode function that controls volume levels when rest is a priority. Its social-media integration tool was created for users to brag to Facebook® friends about what’s turned up on the Amphitheater. Finally, the app enables users to update firmware compatibility with new iOS versions through the media device.
