With all the characteristics of reliable, powerful ZX-Series Amplifiers, the new KICKER® ZXS-Series Amplifiers continue to provide trouble-free amplification and loud, clear sound, and now from a significantly smaller heat sink than its ZX counterparts. Two models of ZXS monoblock amps are available, both under 14 inches long and easy to handle during installation. And they can still be personalized with colorful vinyl skins.
The ZXS1500.1 and ZXS1000.1 Mono-Channel Subwoofer Amplifiers give the user a couple of manageable power choices for supplying bass needs. Offering 1,500 and 1,000 watts respectively (listed ratings 2 Ohm at 14.4V), KICKER makes selections available for what it does best… bass. Hiding under a small, efficient chassis, ZXS.1 Amps offer a 24dB/octave low-pass electronic crossover and a 24dB/octave, high-pass subsonic filter fixed at 25 hertz. They feature up to +18dB of boost centered at 40 hertz, and both include the KICKER ZXRC remote bass control for that extra bit of bass boost at the driver’s fingertips.
Traffic in the Central Hall was heavy every day at CES 2012.
ZXS monoblock amps use a boost converter power supply for the highest sound quality and super efficiency. Boost converter technology allows ZXS monoblock amps to achieve a typical efficiency of nearly 90 percent, better than Class D and way more than Class A/B power, for cooler running and optimum reliability. It also requires fewer internal parts, which allows ZXS amplifiers to be nearly 30 percent smaller than its ZX-amp counterparts.
The Kicker booth in the Central Hall showcased new gear in demo vehicles like this 2011 Chevy Camaro.
KICKER amplifiers feature FIT™, or Fail-Safe Integration Technology for the quietest operation possible. Alternators, computers and audio/video entertainment result in additional noise pulsing through today’s vehicles. FIT utilizes isolated differential inputs, rejecting noise and electrical interference for ultimate audio clarity. FIT comes standard on ZXS and ZX Amplifiers.
Optional endcaps are available for all ZXS and ZX amplifier models. Amp chassis skins for personalizing any install can be ordered at www.kicker.com.
