KICKERHistory

Music...It's deep in our roots. We live it, breathe it and make it kick!

In 1973, KICKER's Livin' Loud® legacy began as a two-man operation, business partners hand-building professional speaker systems from a narrow one-car garage in Stillwater Oklahoma. Seven years into his passion, with few resources but an intense love for music, company founder and current President Steve Irby literally invented the mobile-stereo enclosure market when he developed the Original KICKER. It was the first full-frequency-range speaker box designed specifically for cars and trucks. From that historic moment, delivering concert-like audio quality across a wide volume range with renowned bass and accurate sound has always been the KICKER way.
