KICKER® Audio's PX-Series Amplified Controller with Bluetooth® Selected as “Nifty 50” Award Winner


STILLWATER, USA – The KICKER® PXiBT50.2 Amplified Controller with Bluetooth® was recently tabbed by Powersports Business magazine as a 2013 “Nifty 50” award winner. This award, chosen for the 14th consecutive year, groups together the 50 best products and services available in 2013. The winners were selected by a panel of editors from PSB and its sister powersports publications, and were featured this year in earlier editions of PSB and at the Dealernews International Powersports Dealer Expo in Indianapolis, Ind.

The PXiBT50.2, which begins shipping this month, is an ideal solution for adding tunes to any vehicles not previously equipped with a music source. It’s perfect for bringing entertainment to motorcycles, UTVs, boats, hot rods, golf carts, farm tractors, snowmobiles, ATVs or even riding lawnmowers. The Bluetooth feature lets the unit connect with most any media device and allows the device to serve as the mobile audio system’s source unit. The PXiBT50.2 delivers the innovation and weather-resistant, superior sound quality expected from KICKER powersports audio gear.

The small-footprint amplifier can be hidden with ease, and it pairs with any Bluetooth-compatible media device to provide 50 watts of power (25w x 2 at 2 Ohms). It includes a wired remote which controls device volume and other basic functions that can be positioned within the driver’s reach, mounted with supplied hardware onto handlebars, or surface- or flush-style for vehicle dashes. The amp’s low current draw is designed to be less taxing on powersports vehicles’ small charging systems, and it offers a USB connector that provides hard-wired, five-volt charging of the chosen media device.

The PXiBT50.2 features powered speaker outputs for adding a pair of speakers, resulting in a complete audio system. For an intensified result, it also provides line-level outputs and can be used with multiple or higher-powered amplifiers in a bigger system.
