Whether it's in your den, your garage, or in your office, the Kicker Amphitheater BT2 delivers big, spacious sound from your smartphone, or tablet — as well as Bluetooth-compatible Mac® and PC laptops.

Powerful Kicker sound

This potent speaker system houses two 5" woofers for solid mids and midbass, and two 3/4" silk dome tweeters for crystal-clear highs. The rear-mounted 6" square passive radiator reinforces the lows, giving you big, beefy bass. It's all powered by a built-in 50-watt amplifier with digital signal processing that optimizes the signal for detail and clarity.

KickStart also automatically connects your smartphone or tablet to the Amphitheater BT2 — no messing about with settings. And if you were interrupted in your last session, the Auto Play feature will start the song up when you reconnect, right at the point where it stopped.

Cost effective great sound.

Jimmy from Mount Vernon, OH on 1/8/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Just got my BT2 today. Bluetooth pairing not bad. Overall sound of unit kicks butt. Bose has nothing on these guys. I am most pleased. Can crank this full without distortion. That says a lot unless maybe you're a rap fan and expect rediculously loud low frequencies which is pretty much unnatural to begin with. Would have given 5 stars but it seems they are a little behind on their KickStart EQ app. It's not compatible with IOS 11 yet. That aside great little unit. So far so good.

Pros: Sounds better than expected

Cons: Nothing really

Excellent

steven from Morehead, KY on 12/12/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Highly pleased with this speaker, and most certainly for the price point. Speaker is a breeze to set up, easy to operate, and the sonic quality is solid. I have several high-priced internet-based speakers that don't perform near as well as the Kicker. II can't comment on the Kicker's performance using Bluetooth connectivity--never found the sound quality sufficiently appealing. I connect the music source directly to the Kicker. The Kicker's remote is a useful plus!

Pros: Speaker is a breeze to set up, easy to operate, and the sonic quality is solid.

Cons: none

Easy to set up and sounds good. Perfect for a single room source. A little bigger than I expected (bigger than my old Bose Sound Dock). Sound quality is roughly equivalent to my old Bose unit.

Pros: Easy to set up Sounds good

Cons: Fairly large footprint

Great for about 30 minutes - Cautiously Optimistic

Glen from Covington, GA on 4/25/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was very excited to receive this product and when I connected it to my phone and turned it on I was sure I made the right decision. Clear powerful sound and exactly what I wanted for my specific application. As I enjoyed my first playlist, I started noticing a nit of a 'crackle' in the right speaker. Thinking it might be something specific to Bluetooth, I connected another audio source to the Aux port and the crackling continued. I truly want this product to work for me and I want to believe I got a bad one so I will be returning it for an exchange and hope th new one does not come with any defects. I will update this review when I receive the exchange.

Great Product

Randy from Wylie, Tx on 4/4/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a great product. Good well balanced sound with more than one input options. Sits on any flat surface and won't move with nice rubber feet. Sometimes a bit difficult to move/slide because it sticks so well which is a good thing. I use mine in the fitness room and pool/game room. Range and volume are perfect! The original one I purchased had a defective Aux port where the right side audio was faded out. I tested with 3 different Ipods before calling Crutchfield back. Without hesitation they sent me a replacement. You just can't beat their customer service.

Pros: Good range - audio distribution coming from one box. Volume is perfect for any fitness, gameroom or patio. Multiple connections are nice and blue tooth sync's really well. Rubber feet are extremely tacky allowing this bad boy to stay put....zero fear of sliding around even with the bass turned up.

Cons: Would be nice if it had a retractable handle like a boom box for example. But if you plan to keep it in one place, you're all set.

Wrks well for kitchen

Mike from Wirtz, VA on 7/15/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works well in the kitchen. Sounds best at moderate to loud. Sounds a bit muddy at low volumes, especially if you are off to the side. A good value though. I listen to alternative rock generally so it might sound better with acoustic music. App with equalizer is fun to play with although the perfect settings for one song may leave the next sounding worse.

Pros: Remote works well from 20 feet. App is fun to play with. Bluetooth works. Plenty of volume for me. Attractive but does not draw attention to itself. Sounds best when you are in fro t of it.

Cons: Sound lacks a little clarity.

Terrific Sound

Brian B from Harrisonburg on 7/12/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased as a Father's Day gift for use at house at Smith Mountain Lake. Amazing sound quality only enhanced by a small subwoofer on the back. For the same price as a small, "semi-submergible" speaker that produces about 1/4th the sound, I'd absolutely recommend this. Works with bluetooth and usb.

Pros: Terrific sound, great price.

Cons: No handle but easily can be transported by hand or in canvas bag.

Kicker Amphitheater BT2

gar52671 from Corpus Christi, TX on 2/1/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased this for use in dedicated home gym area (garage). Didn't want the hassle of running a dedicated receiver/amp and wired or wireless speakers. Wanted good sound quality without breaking the bank. The Kicker Amphitheater BT2 has more than met my needs for room filling sound without any harshness when the volume is up. The dedicated subwoofer does the job of filling in the low end. This by no means will blow you away, but if you appreciate quality sound arts reasonable price point, give this item a look and listen. Compact and aesthetically pleasing package that allows user to connect via Bluetooth, aux, or USB. Simple setup gets you up and running in minutes. Overall I've been very satisfied with my purchase.

Pros: Compact and aesthetically pleasing. Ease of set up and use. Quality sound with good bass. Price point.

Cons: Small enough to to carry but no handle makes portability a minor hassle. That's about it for now.

I would have rated it higher but it had a lot of skips when I used it with my Chrome Book. My phone and Chrome Book work just great together so I don't think the problem is the Chrome Book. The sound is very good and it works well with my phone (Motorola Nexus 6).

Pros: Very good sound

Cons: Blue Tooth doesn't work well with all devices.

My second Kicker speaker system that I have had in the last five years. Upgraded this year to the blue tooth version (the old system is now my daughters). For the price and sound you can not beat these systems. New unit sits in pool house and pumps out great sound throughout yard. Recommend to all.

Pros: Overall sound and specifically the bass.

Cons: Not easy to transport around... a handle would be nice.

Bought this product while on sale and absolutely love it. This amphitheater has amazing bass crisp clear treble and is loud.. I can turn the volume all the way up and hear it three house down.. The app you download is not as great but hey that's why you can adjust everything on the system also. I would recommend to anyone who wants loud music and not a lot of space to be used up to get this. You can take it anywhere there is a power outlet and go to town partying.

Pros: Great sound, small compact, easy to use, loud. And everything else that goes with it

Cons: I don't have any cons to give.

Excellent sound in all sizes of rooms, love having a remote. Full range of sound at a great price.. I love the bass and sound app!! Never been disappointed with any kicker products I've boughten..

Pros: Good bass, clear loud sound, remote control, great sound app for adjusting equalizer,

Cons: No am/fm tuner. No water proof remote, and no clock display.

The sound is incredible and with the app my 40ik5bt is a lot better. I am super fascinated with my new speaker with Bluetooth. I would've liked it a lot of more if it had a rechargeable battery. That way I could take it a lot more different places. And the Bluetooth signal also has to be improved. The connected devices to Bluetooth sound a little bit lower on volume. When you connect them directly or with a cable the music sounds a lot louder. Thank you Kicker thank you. I am fascinated with my new 40ik5bt.

I had kicker ikick 501. For years I blasted it on the dock and guys with the "big" systems commented on the sound and power. I also listened quietly working outside at the house with low volume. I finally wore it out, and I can't believe I've found an upgrade at this great price. Thanks Crutchfield.. Rick S. [ rick  Nov 05, 2016 ]

Was looking for something to use in home gym. I wanted something that would not take up too much space but could still deliver the sound quality I wanted. I came across this item and loved the output power and ease of set-up/use. No wires, no multiple speakers, Bluetooth capable and the Kicker name behind it; I'm looking forward to some GAINZZZ when this arrives! [ George  Jan 18, 2016 ]

I bought this unit to use at tailgates and concerts. Sound is great, and it pairs up with my phone easily. Nice that I can plug the phone into it so I don't have to worry about the music stopping for a dead battery! [ R  Dec 17, 2015 ]

Q
This product comes with Audio Dock?
[ Norbert  Sep 07, 2017 ]

A
No audio dock. USB, headphone jack and Bluetooth is how the Kicker reads from your device.
[ Roberto  Sep 08, 2017 ]
A
No, just Bluetooth and a USB input.
[ WOLF  Sep 08, 2017 ]
A
It is not a dedicated, built in audio dock. You have an available USB port to connect/charge your phone. Playback can happen through this USB or via Bluetooth. I've been very pleased with this product.

Is there a fuse that can blow and be replaced if so where do I find the fuse box?

A
There is not external fuse, if you use the power supply provided you should not run into any issues. I have used it a lot in some what unstable electric grids and no problem so far.

Thanks for your question. It is powered by a built-in 50-watt amplifier with digital signal processing that optimizes the signal for detail and clarity. You can find this information on the product page "Details" tab under "Features". Hope that helps.

Q
Is there a power bank or something to make this item portable?
[ Erick  May 14, 2016 ]

A
No, the system has to have plug to work. It's not terribly heavy, but I still don't think you would want to constantly move this around. The sound quality is amazing for a home system.
[ Christopher  May 15, 2016 ]

This was a gift and from what I understand she has purchased an additional portable Bluetooth device so Im guessing it does not because the Kicker hasn't left the house. I hope this reply was helpful.

No there is not. I wish there was.. Be very careful with power outlet, I've broke mine once because it's in a bad spot.. Sound is great for a big room or small..

No there is no power bank. This is not intended to be a portable device. I have used it outdoors with a power cord.

Q
Does anyone know if this is more powerful than the House of Marley "Bag Of Riddim"?
[ Nicasio  Jan 26, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
I can't answer that cause I have not heard them. But I can say that the Kicker amphitheater is definitely worth the money. Great bass great treble and loud. You can also down load the app for it and customize the eq to your liking. I use mine all the time and would definitely recommend it to anyone.
[ STEPHEN  Jan 26, 2016 ]
A
Don't know about Bag Of Riddim, The Kicker is not a booom box. For its size it put out a clear strong sound with a strong true base.

what is total watts on this unit , is it 50 watts total or 50 watts just for the sub ?
[ Gary G  Nov 16, 2014 ]

Does anyone know where I can find the motherboard pin/cord layout. Bought this used and was told it was not working, but from what I see It might be missing a 10 pin connector that runs from Central board over to the right board labeled blue tooth. Also there is a 3 pin connector next to the aux connection, but the board only has 2 pins so I'm wondering if one is missing. Any help would be great.
[ Jousaho  Apr 10, 2016 ]
A
Gary, The manual does not explicitly say, but it would lead you to believe that it is 50 watts total. Here is what it says under specifications: - 50W Stero Amplifier with DSP - 5" Mid-bass woofers - 3/4" Silk dome tweeters - 6" Square reflex subwoofer Its a nice unit - I have it in my office at work. Its too big to be portable, but sounds great and very full. The manual bass adjustment allows you to create some bump if you want it. Jesse

Q
Can this product be used outside the house, or is it ac plug in only?
[ Jimmy  Nov 01, 2014 ]

The sound quality on this product is excellent. As long as you have an extension cord for the electrical cable. There is no option for placing and using batteries.
[ Jonathan  Jul 26, 2015 ]
A
Yes it can be used outside but it's not weather resistant. It requires electricity.
