KICKER® Powersports Hits the Road in 2016
STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® has plans to display at several major off-road and motorcycle shows in 2016, and recently hired Powersports Manager Bryan Grace will be touring the country showing consumers that KICKER Powersports audio gear belongs in every vehicle made for the road, the trail or the desert.
Grace will be driving the 2013 KICKER Ram® Quad Cab that makes a statement with its custom black-and-yellow wrap and VSS™ (Vehicle-Specific Solutions) audio system, which is perfect for any toy-hauling truck. The tour began last week at King of the Hammers in Lucerne Valley, Calif.
“KICKER translates to more than just ‘Powersports’ to a Powersports consumer,” Grace said. “Even though they’re playing or racing on a motorcycle, ATV or UTV, it’s being towed with a truck. On those long trips, they need some great music during the ride. We will show them how the VSS system sounds, in a truck just like theirs.”
The KICKER VSS SubStage™ system is made up of three essential components: a 200-watt monoblock amplifier, wiring harnesses and a 10-inch subwoofer. All three elements have been customized to integrate seamlessly with the vehicle, utilizing factory plugs and mounting points while working with the factory radio and speakers. In the VSS PowerStage™ system, power increases to 50 watts-per-channel, and an additional multi-channel amplifier’s digital signal processor is optimized specifically for the truck make and model of choice.
KICKER’s Lifestyle product will be playing on the Powersports tour as well. It will include the KICKER Amphitheater Speaker System, KPw2 Bluetooth® Speaker and KICKER Vapor and Tabor wireless headphones.
“We can also let them experience our earbuds and headphones while they’re waiting for their turn on the trail,” said Grace, “and the Amphitheater will be on when we’re all together around the campfire.”
