    kicker is overpriced for the product that you receive. That is why everyone bashes kicker. and about us not touching 145, you must be joking.

Corporate America just trying to **** your every last nickel. What happened to the Local guy having a shop selling and installing RF, kicker, mtx, etc. In order to support his family. Those days will slowly diminish.
    most shop should make money on install not on the product, consumer like me move away from shop that has overpriced product since overpriced product means overpriced install, why bend over 2x. if you ask any of these AA, Fi, DC, Sundown, JL, Audioque, or any respectable sub owners im pretty sure they would love to go on walmart (its just business)

    once you factor in time and materials, the shops big profits do not come from installs, ive had this discussion multiple times from the shop i frequent, their big money comes from moving cheap product in large amounts.

    its not all about impedance or how long your voltage gets dropped.
    if you want to play 2k to 2k, id take a kicker kx 2500 or zx 2500 before an aq2200, and im running a pair of aq1200ds, theyre amps are great.. and making power at 2 ohms, i gurantee its more efficient than the AQ. also. the cvxs would get much louder than the obisidians, l7 too..

    Re: Kicker goes Walmart.

    The problem with Walmart and most of the stores that sell car audio is that the "sales people" dont know anything about car audio. I'll accept that most people who shop at Walmart do so for the price and convience. They are not going to research or know anything about the (specific) product they are buying and they certainly aren't going to get any idea of what they are buying from anyone who works at Walmart. This being said, if you are buying from Walmart, Best buy, or any of the big box stores you probably aren't going to be well informed and will have a poor system. The sad thing is that most people will probably be completely happy with their purchase and will never how a good system should sound.

    You can get better deals and advice online, unless you have a really good car audio shop nearby (I went to several car audio shops and noone cared about what I was looking for). They all wanted to sell average/sub par HU's, amps, and speakers and tell me that it was "top of the line."

    If I was trying to sell a superior product I would not want it sold at Walmart. Nor would I try to put out budget products that won't last or sound decient. There is the possibility of putting out a solid product for less, but lets face it, 99% of the time you get what you pay for. Selling at Walmart may look good on sales sheets, but in the end will hurt the brand, which I was never that crazy about.

I don't feel I need to use proper sentence structure in a **** car audio forum where half the people here don't even use real words. I drive Vdub because what car do you know that pulls of the power they do while maintaining 28-30mpg city. That and the fact their motors are built like a tank with forged crank and pistons stock. If you can name one other car that does that other than Subaru you let me know!

These companies want u to fight over who is the best. When honestly there is probably 2 or 3 huge companies that make every single amp on the planet. Wake up people.u don't no who owns this stuff and u don't know who owns these build houses.

    Re: Kicker goes Walmart.

    As already mentioned - Walmart will only see Kicker's entry level product (9 SKU's I believe) and will phase these items out of their regular dealer network later this year. If a shopper wants to step up from their Comp woofer, DS co-axial, or DX amp, etc., they'll need to go to a Kicker dealer.

    Sounds like a win-win to me... Dealer gets to thin out some inventory (it's pricey to carry stock on every SKU Kicker offers) and Walmart gets to offer something better than their current line-up (effectively becoming the top-tier segment).
