I believe I would have to use them if I was on a budget. Best bang for the buck I would say.

Because you see them all the time. Kicker is a good brand, but if everyone has the same equipment, what would make each individual's setup different or unique? Also, as the previous poster stated, there is better out there for the same or less money.

meh. i get kicker accomodations, yet i run no kicker gear. go figure. if i was in the market for a new amp, i might consider a zx2500.1.

everyone i work with runs kicker components, subs, and amps. laughed when i told them what i was running, especially "alumapro."

until they heard it :D

They're alright. But like stated before, there are companies making better component/coaxials for the money.

I switched out Kicker SS Components for Boston Pro's in my roommates car a couple weeks ago. The Bostons were more pleasing to the ears. ;)

i love kicker amps.

every other amp i have used has disappointed me. kicker makes strong amps, and i dont mind paying alittle extra for them. i believe in them, with the circuitries(sp?) and whatnot

subs are a different story, and so are components. ive had both, and i found both extremely disappointing.

but as far as their amps and wiring, i will continue to be a consumer.

I remember Kicker when they were originally called "Stillwater" (Kicker was just their car speaker line's name).

To me they just seem to have become another mass market brand since the mid to late 90's.

i have yet to hear any kicker speakers to be honest with you.... subs yes and they were awesome back in the day then they ****** then they were ok and now i guess they are decent again but not the best out there.... as far as their amps go i love the amps... some of the best amps i have owned have been kickers and i have owned ia, us amps, eclipse, diamond, zapco etc... for the money you get allot of power...

I havent noticed anything to not like about my Sub. It hits good, and has done so for two years now. I have ran it continuous for 17 hrs without any notable problem. I beat alot of dual 12's with my single 15 with a 900 watt rockford fosgate mono. My fiance has a kicker amp thats the **** with two kicker woofers in a custom plexi enclosure made by myself and she blows away alot of people. Also i had a few friends who had record setting kicker setups. So to each their own, but alot of people like to stay outside of the mainstream, i know there are alot of good subs out there.

Alpine?

IMO I have the same feelings for Alpine as Kicker, Im not much of a fan of Alpine speakers although they are pretty good, just a personal thing I guess, theres just so many options and more than just Alpine and Kicker, theyre both pretty mainstream and both pretty good, there is just so many options and choices dammit!! haha


Personal Preference strikes again!!

I use to run the Resolution Series a while back (from the mid to late 90's), the ones with the ND25 silk dome tweeters. Those, I thought sounded nice. As for now.....I agree that for the price, there are better offerings out there.

No problem.

I used to run Kicker Ks 6's (there upper line model's) and they sounded great, got LOUD, and had decent midbass for not being deadened,

i first had it paired with a kicker 75.2 or 100.2 whatever there smaller amp is... it sounded ok, then i decided to up the wattage to a T500.2 for about 250ish rms per speaker and they took it great! they screamed they got **** loud, this was of course for a few months until one midbass went out then i packed them up and replaced them with my current components

cant go wrong with kicker speakers! (this is of course if you get them for a **** good deal, i would personally go with the DD comp's or pair up some M6 midbass's with some nice tweets)

You are correct. Stillwater Designs located in Stillwater, Oklahoma aka Oklahoma State University. Use to pass by their warehouse all the time

Kicker SS Components and the refurb amps are good for the money at the prices they are going for on ebay. I think a lot of the stuff is made in China... but so are most other products these days.
