The Kicker DX1000.1 is a low-cost subwoofer amplifier for car audio or multimedia systems. This is a basic mono-channel bass amp, and is similar to the Kicker DX500.1 but with twice the power. A maximum of 1000 Watts of output can be sent to a 1 ohm resistance subwoofer, although this number is greatly reduced as resistances increase. Balanced differential inputs are used to keep the unit compatible with factory-installed radios, and to reduce noise for a cleaner signal. The system powers down until activated by one of 3 automatic turn-on modes, and can be directly controlled with a mountable remote.
