Summary: It plays loud, it plays clear. No distortion. Rocks your tunes like nobodys business. This is one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. All the other reviews speak volumes about how great this ipod dock is. Believe it. It really makes a run at Bose and I believe surpasses it due to the great bass response and the volume you crank this too and still have it be crystal clear. If you're on the fence, go for it.
Summary: This speaker is a fantastic speaker that will blow you away. The sound quality is great. This thing can get really loud, 25 is plenty and it goes all the way up to 40. Also it is very good looking and cool. The subwoofer in the back is excellent. This thing can produce lots of bass that you can hear and even feel. This speaker has excellent sound quality and clarity with lots of bass. Also it comes with a easy to use remote.
Summary: I purchased the Kicker ik501 for my mom. After she heard my Bose unit at my house she mentioned that she would love something like it for her line dancing classes. I explained how the Bose is very pricey and let me do some searching on the internet for a better deal. Well I found it, this unit here will fill a large room with sound. I was totally shocked when I tried it out. I would also highly recommend it for outside use too.
Summary: I am somewhat of an old fashioned audiophile. While Kicker is not known in the halls of the audiophile-dom it certainly gets honorable mention because of its raw capabilities to stand strong as a performer on its own merits as well as its capabilities to have an additive effect to any existing stereo system without lowering the finer points of quality sound. From this stand point ikick 501 is a diamond in the rough, but no less a diamond.
Summary: Decided on the Kicker iK501 after reading about every review i could on iPod systems. I researched for 30 days looking just about everywhere for the best bang for my buck. I am NOT disappointed by this system. Far exceeds the Bose system I listened to. Overall sound quality is excellent. Off axis response is superb, vocals and highs are true, and bass far exceeded my expectations. This thing will POUND!! Perfect for outdoors or for easy listening.
Summary: I am currently serving in Afghanistan and needed a stereo to help alleviate some of the stress of working out in the hot sun. I first looked into getting the speaker system from Beats by Dre after one of my peers had one delivered. Yes the Beat Box sounds good and can get loud, but I wasn't looking to spend $200+ for something that was probably not going to last through the year. I have heard the Bose systems before and was not impressed.
Summary: It's got the right price, size and bass. I love the ikick. I bring it out on the patio every night. The louder it sounds, the better. But even at low volumes, you enjoy the sound, especially knowing it's potential. I am very picky, however, I'm glad I bought the ikick.
Summary: I did a lot of homework on what to get as a ipod mp3 dock and bose is great, clear and loud. The problem with bose is it won't be good for my kind of music as i need bass in my music. I didn't want the dre box cause it was to dam big. I want something as small and portable as I can but with a lot of bass. I came across this and read a lot about it saw YouTube videos and fell in love with it and ordered it.
Summary: I haven't heard all of the ipod/iphone docks out there but when I fired this baby up for the first time I was impressed. I'm somewhat critical of sound systems, have a full klipsch setup in the living room, and wanted something that filled the room. You could honestly use this for a good size party, its that loud. The highs are crisp the bass is amazing for such a small unit and it will blast you out of the room if you want without any distortion.
Summary: Through the years I've had several iPod docks and this is hands down the best I have seen. I'm familiar with Kicker in the automobile audio space and was surprised to see an iPod stereo at my local electronics store. The price set me off from grabbing it on the spot but found a reasonable price on Amazon so saved $50-$75. The sound is great and goes to high volume with amazing clarity and rich bass. The controls are super simple and intuitive.
