INSTALLATION
Mounting: Choose a structurally sound location to mount your KICKER powered subwoofer enclosure. Carefully
check the areas where the mounting straps will be placed. Make sure the mounting screws will not puncture
the gas tank/brake lines/wiring or interfere with any mechanical parts on the underside of the mounting surface.
Choose a location that allows at least 4” (10cm) of open ventilation for the amplifier. If possible, mount the
enclosure in the climate-controlled passenger compartment.
Vented Enclosures: Do not obstruct the vent opening, and make sure you leave at least 4” [10cm] of space
around the vent. When mounting the enclosure in the extreme rear of the vehicle, point the woofer toward the
front of the vehicle for optimal bass. Conversely, if the enclosure is going to be mounted closer to the back
seat, pointing the woofer toward the rear of the vehicle will give you the best results. If it is more convenient to
mount the enclosure along a side wall, put the enclosure on the left side of the vehicle; this orientation will make
the vent point toward the rear of the vehicle for optimal bass output.

Automatic Turn-On Selection: KICKER powered enclosures offer three different automatic turn-on modes
that can be selected on the side panel; +12V, DC Offset, and Audio. Using either the DC Offset or Audio mode
causes the REM terminal to have +12V out for turning on additional amplifiers.
• Remote Turn-On: Set the switch to +12V to use the remote turn-on lead from your source unit. Run 18
gauge wire from the Remote Turn-On Lead on your source unit to the terminal labeled REM on the quickconnect power harness. This is the preferred automatic turn-on method.
• DC Offset Turn-On: If Remote Turn-On is not an option, the next best setting is DC Offset. The DC Offset
mode detects a DC offset from the HI-Level speaker outputs when the source unit has been turned on.
• Signal Sense Turn-On: The Audio setting is the final alternative for Automatic turn-on. This is a Signal Sense
turn-on method that detects the incoming audio signal from your source unit and automatically turns on
your powered enclosure. This turn-on method will not work properly if the input gain control is not set
appropriately.

Phase Switch: The phase switch lets you invert the phase of the signal played through your powered
subwoofer. This is useful if the speakers in your system are out of phase with the subwoofer. Toggle this switch
to find the position that gives you the best bass response.
Input Level: The inputs on KICKER powered enclosures are capable of receiving either Hi (speaker-level) or
Low-level (RCA) signals from your source unit. Set the Input Level switch on the side panel to match the outputs
of your source unit.
Crossover Control: The variable crossover on the side panel allows you to adjust the crossover frequency from
50–200Hz. The setting for this control is subjective; 80Hz is a good place to start.
Input Gain Control: The input gain control is not a volume control. It matches the output of the source unit to
the input level of the powered enclosure’s amplifier. Turn the source unit up to about 3/4 volume (if the source
unit goes to 30, turn it to 25). Next, slowly turn the gain on the powered enclosure up (clockwise) until you can
hear audible distortion, then turn it down a little.
Bass Boost Control: The variable bass boost control on the side panel is designed to give you increased
output (0–18dB) at 40 Hz. The setting for this control is subjective. If you turn it up, you must readjust the input
gain control to avoid clipping the powered enclosure’s amplifier.
Remote Bass Control: With the included remote bass control, you have the ability to control the output level
of your powered enclosure remotely. When plugged into the enclosure, the remote bass control bypasses and
takes the place of the gain control on the side panel. To mount the remote bass level control, simply screw the
metal bracket to the chosen location, then slide the housing onto the bracket until it snaps into place. Run the
cable from the controller to the “Remote Bass” jack on your powered enclosure’s side panel.
DO NOT disconnect the remote bass control when the amplifier is on!

TROUBLESHOOTING
If your amplifier does not appear to be working, check the obvious things first such as blown fuses, poor or
incorrect wiring connections, incorrect setting of crossover and gain controls, etc. There is a dual-stage PWR/
PRT LED on side panel of your powered enclosure denoting the power state of the amplifier. When the LED is
blue, this indicates the powered enclosure is turned on and its amplifier is functioning properly.
PWR/PRT LED off, no output? With a Volt Ohm Meter (VOM) check the following: +12 volt power terminal
(should read +12V to +16V) Remote turn-on terminal (should read +12V to +16V) Check for reversed
power and ground connections. Ground terminal, for proper conductivity. Check for blown fuses.
Check the AUTO TURN-ON switch setting. Check for a DC offset between a speaker lead and ground if using
DC-OFFSET mode.
PWR/PRT LED blue, no output? Check the following: audio input connections Substitute source unit
with a “known” good source unit. Check for a signal in the audio cable feeding the powered enclosure with
the VOM meter set to measure “AC” voltage.
PWR/PRT LED red, no output? Amplifier shuts down only while vehicle is running = voltage protection
circuitry is engaged. Voltage to the amplifier is not within the 10–16 volt operating range. Have the vehicle’s
charging and electrical system inspected. A red PWR/PRT LED may also indicate low battery voltage. Check
all the connections in your vehicle’s charging system. It may be necessary to replace or charge your vehicle’s
battery or replace your vehicle’s alternator.
No or low output? Check the balance control on source unit Check the amplifier input connections.
Check the polarity of the input signal connections.
Alternator noise-whining sound with engine’s RPM? Check for damaged RCA (or speaker input) cable
Check the routing of RCA (or speaker input) cable through your vehicle—move it away from power cables.
Check the source unit for proper grounding Check the gain settings and turn them down if they are set too
high Check ground wire connections and make sure they are tightly connected.
Reduced bass response? Flip the phase switch to the opposite position; if the bass improves, your speakers
were out of phase with the subwoofer.
Ground Noise? KICKER amplifiers are engineered to be fully compatible with all manufacturers’ head units.
Some head units may require additional grounding to prevent noise from entering the audio signal. If you are
experiencing this problem with your head unit, in most cases running a ground wire from the RCA outputs on the
head unit to the chassis will remedy this issue. If you still have problems, run your input signal at speaker-level
from your source unit to the amplifier.
CAUTION: When jump starting the vehicle, be sure that connections made with jumper cables are correct.
Improper connections can result in blown amplifier fuses as well as the failure of other critical systems in the
vehicle.

Contact your International KICKER dealer or distributor concerning specific procedures for your country’s warranty policies.
WARNING: KICKER products are capable of producing sound levels that can permanently damage your hearing! Turning up a
system to a level that has audible distortion is more damaging to your ears than listening to an undistorted system at the same
volume level. The threshold of pain is always an indicator that the sound level is too loud and may permanently damage your
hearing. Please use common sense when controlling volume.
