STILLWATER, USA – The Nicky Hayden-inspired iK501 Docking System literally brings a new angle to the KICKER® dock collection for iPhone™ and iPod.®
The best sounding and loudest dock available, the Nicky Hayden-edition KICKER iK501 features an outrageous, square-shaped reflex subwoofer on the back of the unit, along with a pair of five-inch woofers and silk-dome tweeters. It’s all juiced by a powerful internal amplifier with digital signal processing for the richest, closest-to-live sound available from a docking system.
The “skin” design, inspired by KICKER-sponsored superbiker Nicky Hayden and his stars-and-stripes color scheme, is featured on custom vinyl made specifically to fit the iK501 Docking System. This glossy, high-resolution skin makes the iKICK™ look as unique as it sounds and can be easily repositioned or removed.
“I think the Nicky Hayden-signature iKICK turned out really cool,” Hayden said. “I always have the iKICK going at the track in my changing
room or motorhome before I ride, so I need the jams to sound good. Anybody who knows me knows I really love music, and I like it to sound
“The KICKER partnership and the iKICK branding deal is a great collaboration. I'm always listening to it and now my fans can too."
The iKICK’s thin infrared remote is fully featured to navigate with ease through the dock’s system menu, adjusting bass, treble and aux-in
options, as well as through the iPod or iPhone’s menus and sub-menus. Standby will continue to charge the iPod or iPhone even when the
system is powered down.
Other features include composite video output that allows video to play from the media unit to larger screens. An auxiliary-input jack allows a
hookup for stereo sound from other MP3 or compact-disc players, computers or satellite radio. Fixed Audio Out provides flexibility by
connecting the iKICK to larger audio systems or entire-house audio distribution. A two-foot auxiliary cable, integrated carrying handle, AC
power cord and 22-volt power supply add up to complete a convenient and enjoyable entertainment experience.
The KICKER iK501’s dock certifiably works with iPhone, along with iPhone 3G and all 4th-generation or newer iPod media players.
The critically acclaimed unit is being offered for a limited time at shop.kicker.com for the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $299.95.
