Tiny KICKER® PX100.2 Powersports Amplifier Delivers High Power, Low Current Draw from Fairing or Glove Box

STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® now provides powersports enthusiasts with a high-power, low-draw amplifier solution for the open-air listening environment, and in a tidy little chassis smaller than a brick.  The KICKER PX100.2 Power Amplifier is specifically designed for motorized vehicles with small battery/charging systems, and in an incredibly small footprint that can be installed in motorcycle saddle bags or fairings, glove compartments and other previously unusable spaces.

A ground-breaking model of PX stereo power delivers in the toughest places to fit and drive, giving music lovers the answer for their recreational vehicles.  The full-range PX100.2 Stereo Amplifier (50 watts RMS x 2 @ 2 Ohms, 14.4V) is great for motorcycles, hot rods, UTVs, boats, golf carts, ATVs, snowmobiles and even tractors, and they’re recommended to pair with specific KICKER powersports speakers to offer an audio system that weekend warriors have been seeking for years.

The PX100.2’s diminutive size (only two inches high and 3-1/2 inches wide) and its uncanny coolness during operation is mostly due to a KICKER first – Direct Amp Technology™, meaning the amp uses the host vehicle’s charging system as its power supply for nearly 90-percent efficiency.  As a result, the PX100.2 draws less than 10 amps at maximum output for solid power without taxing the limited charging capacity found on motorcycles, utility or other vehicles.

The sound output is undeniably KICKER.  The PX100.2 takes into account real-world, open-air listening in powersports applications, smartly directing precious power where it succeeds – in the 40-to-250-hertz frequency range where a biker or rider can truly hear and feel it in the open air.  It also contains a differential audio circuit that reduces engine noise in the audio system for low T.H.D. (total harmonic distortion) and superb clarity at high volumes.

Made for the outdoors, the PX100.2 is weather-resistant with a conformal-coated circuit board for extra protection against the elements.  It also includes no-rust, stainless-steel mounting hardware.  A single Molex plug contains all wiring connections.  The KICKER PX100.2 utilizes a speaker (amplified) or low (pre-amp)-level input, variable input gain adjustment and two auto turn-on modes (DC offset or 12-volt trigger).

The PX100.2 Stereo Amp is recommended for use with KICKER PS5250 Powersports Coaxial Speakers or KICKER KM-Series Marine Speakers and Tower Systems.
