The Amphitheater pairs with Bluetooth-enabled devices including smartphones, tablets and computers. Listeners can also adjust the sound by downloading the free KickStart™ app from iTunes® or Google® Play. It features an 8-band equalizer, bass and treble sliders, and a tight or wide spatialization selection for soundstage control. It also provides the option to load and save sound presets for categorizing music, which is great for customizing by individual listeners or each music source like Internet radio or a cloud player. The app provides a social-media integration tool so users can brag to Facebook® friends about what they’re listening to on the Amphitheater. Users can also update firmware as needed through the app.
KickStart offers Bluetooth support as well. Auto Connect will allow a device within range to stream, if enabled by the user. Selectable Auto Play continues where a song last left off. Priority List shows up to five devices paired to the Amphitheater in priority order, set automatically or manually.
The Amphitheater delivers remarkable sound quality and legendary KICKER bass response from a 6-inch, square reflex subwoofer. Music is instantly brought to life by stunning 5-inch drivers and 3/4-inch, silk-dome tweeters. A 50-watt internal amplifier is optimized with digital signal processing (DSP) to get the most performance from the system. The Amphitheater’s sound is the result of years of engineering in KICKER’s acoustic labs resulting in a sophisticated mix of smooth highs, deep, rich lows and a signature KICKER sound.
For added convenience, the audio system implements a USB port for charging external devices and an auxiliary-input jack for connecting and playing non-Bluetooth devices. A status LED illuminates to indicate current function and command. An included ergonomic remote provides full control of the system, incorporating bass and treble adjustment, source change (Bluetooth or aux-input), volume, mute, play/pause, track forward/back and fast forward/back. Four easy-to-select buttons on top of the unit are featured for source/pair, mute, and volume up and down.
