KICKER® IX1000.5 Amp Delivers Full-Range, High-Efficiency Power in a Compact Footprint to Run a Complete Audio System

STILLWATER, USA – As the best-designed and best-sounding amplifiers KICKER® makes, KICKER IX-Series Amplifiers are guaranteed to deliver dependable, high-efficiency Class-D power to any mobile audio system. The ground-breaking design results in the smallest chassis ever developed by KICKER engineers. Despite having a heat sink of just more than 11 inches long, the IX1000.5 5-Channel Amplifier with Sub Section provides plenty of power to a system’s subwoofer and high end.
Any of the five models of IX Amplifiers – a pair of Class-D subwoofer options, a full-range, Class-D four-channel, a full-range, the Class-D IX1000.5 hybrid with subwoofer channel and a full-range, Class-D stereo model – they give the user a slew of features any music lover will certainly appreciate, such as a super-small footprint, lesser weight and a stackable design for more fuel efficiency and increased cargo space. IX Amps also utilize FIT™ (Fail-Safe Integration Technology) for significant noise reduction and compatibility with any factory radio, three choices of automatic turn-on modes (remote, DC offset, or signal sense) and the high power efficiency of Class-D technology.
The new high-power, hybrid IX1000.5 Amplifier gives the listener flexibility for system choices. The IX1000.5 Five-Channel Amp with subwoofer section (125 x 4 stereo/500 x 1 mono, 2 Ohm at 14.4V) provides full-range, Class-D power from a compact chassis less than a foot wide and can power an entire system. A remote bass control puts the amount of bass at the user’s fingertips.
While KICKER amps are always covered by a two-year factory warranty, KICKER will provide an additional one-year extended warranty with the purchase of any KICKER installation kit at the time of the amplifier purchase. Consumers should contact any Authorized KICKER Dealer or log onto for more information.
KICKER Performance Audio products, a division of Stillwater Designs and Audio, Inc.®, are available for the mobile and home audio aftermarket at authorized dealers worldwide, and also through selected Original Equipment Manufacturers.
