Kicker iK501 – iPod Docking Station

 

When you think about Car Audio, one of the first names that come to mind is the ever so popular Kicker brand of audio equipment. While they have traditionally produced some of the best bang for your buck car subwoofers, they have until recently steered...

When compared to many other well established home audio names such as Bose, Altec Lansing, etc…,

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

Do you want loud, ground-shaking sound from a cool looking stereo-boombox? Then this system is for you. This system is not meant for those who want medium, light 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...

Consumer review by: Nat (abt.com)

Kicker really does kick

 

This is a great product if you are after pure sound. With all the current systems on the market for an ipod dock, this is a definite standout. The 5" subwoofer would have to be one of the best assets included in this package and with 3/4" silk dome...

Easy Setup, Fast Charge, Durable
