KICKER® returns to Lone Star Throwdown with Award-Winning Rides

STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® will sponsor the Lone Star Throwdown (LST) for the sixth straight year, bringing its 83-foot rolling showroom – the XRV (Xtreme Recreational Vehicle). The XRV displays the complete line of KICKER audio gear and houses the “Boom Room” with an entire wall full of 15-inch, Solo-Baric® L7S subwoofers and 40,000 watts. The show will take place Feb. 24-26 at the Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, Texas.

KICKER will run two consumer contests simultaneously during the show as part of the brand’s marketing plan. One includes a 1,200-watt bass package giveaway consisting of a pair of CompRT® 10-inch subwoofers with a 1,200-watt mono amplifier. KICKER will also partner with MTI Acoustics to give away a pair of MTI’s new universal sub enclosures with new KICKER Competition Gold™ subwoofers pre-installed.

Three demo vehicles will accompany the XRV – all loaded with KICKER gear. KICKER’s Special Projects manager Tim Smith will bring his custom 1994 Chevy® C1500 to the show, which includes a KICKER KEY200.4 Smart Amplifier, KS midranges and the KSMT “Snowman” pods for the front stage. A pair of Solo-Baric L7T thin square subwoofers deliver the bass. In addition to the C1500, a 2002 Lightning and 1956 Chevy wagon will also park under the XRV’s awning.

More than 2,000 show cars have already pre-registered, and LST officials anticipate attendance exceeding 15,000 people. Top 100 and best-of-show awards will be presented, along with several cash prizes.
