Or, you could power a couple of front speakers with 65 watts each, plus a sub with 180 watts from the amp's bridged rear channels.

Tone controls for the best sound

Separate high- and low-pass filters on the front and rear channels help you sculpt the sound to get the most out of all your speakers. Variable bass boosts, also on both the front and rear channels, allow you to add some low-end punch when you're running subs. If you're using the rear channels to drive a subwoofer, an optional wired remote lets you control the level from the front seat.

Hooks in almost anywhere in almost any position

Kicker's Fail-Safe Integration Technology (FIT™) keeps this amp's input free from noise or interference, so you can tap into your vehicle's speaker wiring for an input signal without a worry. A 3-second turn-on/turn-off delay eliminates system pops and other noises. The CXA360.4T comes with hardware that lets you mount it vertically, so you can put it in a location that takes up very little floor space and looks cool too.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The CXA 360.4 4-channel amplifier is effectively two full range 2-channel amps built into one chassis, labeled Amp 1 and Amp 2. Each section of the amp is bridgeable, so it can be wired as 4-channel, 3-channel, or 2-channel.

CEA-2006 Compliant: CEA-2006 is a system of testing and measurement for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard advocates a uniform method for measuring an amplifier's RMS power output and signal-to-noise ratio. The criteria for measuring amplifier power uses a DC input voltage of 14.4 volts and the RMS power output is measured over a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz (for full range amplifiers), with 1% or less Total Harmonic Distortion plus noise (THD+N). Signal-to-Noise ratio is measured in weighted absolute decibels (dBA) at a reference of 1 watt into 4 ohms. CEA-2006 standards allow consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers under the same conditions (apples to apples).

CEA-2006 Specifications:

  • Power Output: 65 watts RMS x 4 into 4Ω
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: 75 dBA (measured at 1 watt into 4Ω)

Other Specifications:

  • Power Output:
    • 2Ω: 90 watts RMS x 4 (14.4 volts, ≤1.0% THD+N)
    • Bridged (4Ω): 180 watts RMS x 2 (14.4 volts, ≤1.0% THD+N)
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: 95 dB (at rated power output)

Controls:

  • Input Level: 2-position switch; select high (speaker-level) or low (line-level)
  • Input Gain Control: independent rotary gain controls for Amp 1 and Amp 2; continuously variable from 250mV to 10V with the input level switch set to low; 1V to 40V with the input level switch set to high
  • Crossover: independent 3-position switches for Amp 1 and Amp 2; select Off, High Pass, or Low Pass; the slope is 12 dB/octave for both
  • Frequency: separate rotary controls for Amp 1 and Amp 2; continuously variable from 50 to 200 Hz
  • Fader: 2-position switch; turn on when using two pair of dedicated inputs; leave off when only using one pair of inputs
  • KickEQ Bass Boost: separate rotary controls for Amp 1 and Amp 2; increase the bass level between 0dB and +6dB; centered at 40Hz

Mounting: The CX Series amplifiers can be mounted vertically, if desired, with the included mounting brackets. When mounted vertically, the dimensions are:

  • Height: 6⅞"
  • Length: 12⅞"
  • Width: 2⅜"

Auto Turn-on: The amplifier has two methods of turning on: +12V and DC Offset. The preferred method is to run an 18-gauge wire from the remote turn-on lead of the source unit to the Remote (REM) terminal on the amp. When a +12V signal is detected on the wire, the amplifier will turn on. If your source unit lacks a remote turn-on lead (a factory head unit, for example), you can choose to turn on the amplifier via the DC Offset method. When a DC offset is detected (>2.5 volts) on the speaker-level inputs, the amplifier automatically turns on.

Wire Connections: The CXA360.4 has screw-down terminals for power, ground, turn-on (REM), and speaker output, which will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors. The power and ground slots are 0.512" wide and the remote and speaker slots are 0.335" wide.

External Fuse: The amplifier does not include a built-in fuse, therefore an external fuse should be placed on the power wire, within 18" of the battery. It is recommended that an 8-gauge amplifier wiring kit and a 40-amp external fuse be used when installing the amplifier.

Note: Currently (as of 4/24/19) Kicker will extend the standard warranty by an additional year (for a total of three years) when a qualifying Kicker Installation Kit is purchased with the amplifier.

Input Signal: The CXA360.4 accepts either high (speaker-level) or low (line-level) input signals on the two pair of RCA inputs (Amp 1, Amp 2), selectable using the input level switch on the end of the amp. When using a speaker-level input signal, add the optional Kicker KiSL speaker-level to RCA adapter. The input sensitivity is 250mV-10V (low) or 1V-40V (high).

Optional Wired Remote: The optional CXARC remote bass level control can be added to remotely control the output level of the Amp 2 channels. (The low pass crossover must be engaged.) The CXARC's control knob can be mounted near the driver's seat, and the control's cable extended to the amplifier location.

Certified Power: Each amplifier is tested when it comes off of the assembly line. Tests are run for Total Harmonic Distortion, Signal-to-Noise Ratio, Protection Circuit, and Total Power Output. A Certified Power certificate with model and serial number is included with each amp with the measured power output figure, and a pass/fail grade for the other tests.

Q
Why does my CXA360.4 amp turn off when my CXAI200.1 amp gives me base?
[ Fernando  Dec 16, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
I have that amp & a kicker kxa 800.1 for the subwoofer. Mine doesn't turn off at all. You should contact Crutchfield for technical support.
[ jimmy  Dec 16, 2020 ]
A
That's a tough question without more information. How are they wired, and does it come back on when you first turn on the car then go away once the bass hits. Or does the 360 never work with the 1200 connected. Is it only when there is a strong bass hit, or maybe kinky at high volume
[ Chris  Dec 16, 2020 ]
Q
Why does my kicker amp CXA360.4 not turn on when I start my vehicle?
[ Fernando  Dec 16, 2020 ]

A
Verify good power and ground. Make sure the blue turn on wire is connected to an ignition/accessory power source. What kind of vehicle do you have? Use a test light or volt meter.
[ animal24  Dec 16, 2020 ]
A
Do you have constant battery power attached and ground attached correctly then most importantly you must have the remote input hooked up too a ignition related power supply that only comes on when the igntion is activated on your vehicle or in more precise terms when tje radio in your vehicle is on be careful operating this amp for longer then an hour without vehicle running will drain any good battery in your vehicle
[ Randy  Dec 16, 2020 ]
A
It powers on when the radio turns on. Not when the vehicle is turned on
[ Wrench   Dec 16, 2020 ]
Q
I'm replacing the factory Bose speakers in my 2018 Chevy Silverado. I have Kicker 46CSC6934 6"x9" 3 way speakers for the front doors and Kicker CompRT 43CWRT672 6"3/4 subwoofers for the back doors. Do I need an amp to run these speakers on the factory receiver?
[ Anthony  Dec 06, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes big time. However they are gonna tell you that they can't help you since you are prewired for the Bose system. My canyon did not have the Bose system, however it did have the large silver amp behind the radio. So what happened was I ended up voiding my warranty bc crutchfield did not have the correct schematic for my vehicle apparently, even tho I sent numerous pictures to numerous different techs. I never did get the back speakers to work properly and since I wired an amp into an amp... yea just made for non balanced sound at various times, etc. I would personally research the heck out of this and look for a company who makes a prewired adapter that you can just plug into the back of your receiver and not go thru the misery I did. Ended up trading the truck and had to leave the amp and speakers since I had no warranty left on my 4 month old truck.

Q
Will be powering L&R - 2 ch 8 ohm speakers rated at 85W RMS. With bridge - 2 channels out provide 90 watts RMS each?
[ Dan  Dec 04, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
You will see 45rms for each speaker, as your speakers are rated 8ohm speakers.
[ Jim  Dec 06, 2020 ]
Q
Do you need an aftermarket stereo or will a stock one be fine?
[ Adam  Dec 01, 2020 ]
5 answers
A
Stock is fine as long as you don't need to modify connections
[ EDDIE  Dec 13, 2020 ]
A
Stock will be fine but you will need a line output converter. Dont cheap out on the line output converter it will really hurt sound quality. I would highly recommend an Audio Control LC2I
[ Lisa  Dec 06, 2020 ]
A
A stock head unit is fine. You will however need a line out converter to use inbetween to convert the hi input to low input signals. A 2 ch loc works perfectly fine
[ Jim  Dec 06, 2020 ]
A
You can use a stock radio but you will need adapters that have rca plugs on the ends. There's a switch on the amp to allow for the higher input signal. It's a great amp for the money.?
[ Thomas  Dec 04, 2020 ]
A
These amps have high level sensing technology built in. You can use your OEM headunit's speaker circuits to provide the input signal to the amp. The amp can also sense when that signal is present, and will turn on/off automatically. But, for best results I highly recommend a suitable aftermarket headunit!!
[ Chris  Dec 04, 2020 ]
Q
Is it possible to use this amp to power 1 sub (bridged) and 2 6x9s?
[ Dsnvogues  Aug 07, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
You could use this amp in bridged, 2-channel mode to drive a couple of subs or high-performance speakers with 180 watts RMS each. Or, you could power a couple of front speakers with 65 watts each, plus a sub with 180 watts from the amp's bridged rear channels. To get the most out of your speakers, I would have a separate amplifier for your subwoofer, that way you can tune your mids (6x9's) and lows (subs) separately for the best outcome. I personally have this amp powering 6x9's and 6.5's with a separate amp for a subwoofer.
