Kicker iK501 - iPod Docking Station


, at CES 2011. Today we have gotten one in our hands to take a closer look at. Will their home audio be as crisp, clear, and loud as their car audio counterparts? Join us as we take a look

Still portable and still loud, the iK501 still features the outrageous, square-shaped reflex subwoofer on the back of the unit, along with a pair of five-inch woofers and silk-dome tweeters. It?s all juiced by a powerful internal amplifier with digital...

One Dock, One Knob, One Power Cord and Five Speakers


The Kicker iK501 is a kickass speaker system that blows many other iPhone speakers out of the water. It's top benefits are it's sound quality, loudness and simple, sturdy design.

Strong, powerful sound ; Durable, heavy construction ; Easy to use features

No battery option

Outstanding all-around sound


I used to work retail and sell an assortment of sound docks. I've listened to everything out there for hours at a time (excluding Dre's Beats dock, wasn't released yet). The Kicker dock is every bit as good as the high-priced Bose dock. Maybe even a...

Deep punchy bass ; LOUD ; Built like a tank ; Current pricepoint

I guess larger mid-range speakers might help? But honestly, I'm perfectly happy the way it is ; No bluetooth? (Sound quality/volume would suffer through that anyway)

IK501 is the best!


by far one of the best "tools" in my house.

great sound, aux input for other MP3 players. it also has rca outs for hooking up and external sub ;) (major plus in my book) ; i tried every ipod dock that best buy carried in the store except the 400 dollar bose which ill never buy their product...

the remote is limited in range to around 20 ft, kicker needs to make an ik601 with 6in drivers for even more sound

Looking for something with great sound and volume?


This speaker dock is awesome. All functions from the remote work with my iPod Touch and iPhone 4. The sound quality and volume that this pumps out is awesome; I've only gone about half way up on the volume and it fills the house. I don't use the dock...
