Come Kick It at the KICKER Visitors Center!
KICKER World Headquarters and Visitors Center is located at 3100 North Husband in Stillwater, Okla., and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Visitors Center is closed on holidays.
For purchasing genuine KICKER gear or for just experiencing high-end audio and tricked-out demo vehicles in an architecturally engaging setting, look no further than the KICKER Visitors Center. Located inside the front doors at World Headquarters in Stillwater, Oklahoma, the Visitors Center is open to educate the public about the KICKER brand, mobile- and home-audio products, and how quality audio gear can create great sound and enhance your life adventures.
The ultimate KICKER encounter starts immediately after you walk under the massive entry structure and through the main doors. Motion sensors activate the Sound-Wave Wall, which consists of 19 synchronized, 15-inch KICKER Solo-Baric subwoofers – the premiere KICKER subwoofer model. Imitating a sound wave, the square Solo-Barics are suspended along the wall and vibrate in pre-programmed sequences (yes, moving air, but detuned for practically no sound). It’s under these speakers where visitors can take a look-see at the newest KICKER Performance Audio gear.
Just past the central reception desk and brushed aluminum map of the globe showing where KICKER products are available, the Livin’ Loud Legacy is proudly displayed on four, 11-foot-high columns that take full advantage of the atrium’s unusual height. The tapered towers illustrate the KICKER story, focusing on our speaker technology, colorful company history, innovation and product development.
The Art of Install Exhibit curves 40 feet along the perimeter of the sweeping glass window/wall. The Art of Install explores the importance of a proper audio system installation in a vehicle, while the arc window also offers a view outside to the garden and Boomer Lake, a picturesque Stillwater landmark.
Steps away, visitors can literally hear and feel the rumble that KICKER excels at with the ridiculous Wall of Boom. This massive display stands over 14 feet tall and 20 feet wide, showcasing 28 subwoofers and 46 additional speakers, with 18 amplifiers powering them. A touch-screen controller delivers the thunder one would expect, as well as the audio clarity KICKER is famous for. A built-in, flat-screen monitor also shows footage of KICKER-sponsored action-sports athletes doing their thing.
As if all of this wasn’t enough, visitors can also check out the custom demo vehicles and displays scattered throughout the room. Reserving the right to add or change tricked-out rides in the showroom, the Visitors Center opened with the sinister 1964 KICKER/Monster Energy Impala, the incredible Polaris SnoKat UTV and the refined 1960 KICKER Metropolitan – all having custom, top-to-bottom mods with the most impressive audio installations that add to the Livin’ Loud legacy.
After you’ve hung out in the Visitors Center for a bit, the Gift Shop completes the KICKER experience. It’s the place to find high-end headphones, earbuds, critically acclaimed docking systems for iPods, iPhones and Zune players, t-shirts, caps, or anything KICKER – great for gifts or for just treating yourself to super-clear, concert-like sound. Because it’s impossible to describe the awesomeness of the KICKER Visitors Center with words, you’ve gotta come check it out for yourself!
