Excerpt: This hefty slab of American iPoddery looks set to eat you from the moment you heave it from its box, and in action it delivers almost entirely on its visual promise. The Kicker i500 is loud. Very, loud – so much so that even the mighty Zeppelin might have its work cut out to compete.
Pros: Goes very loud and can shift air even in a large room
Cons: Can get ragged around the top-end with bright recordings
