Big Installs and Bigger Announcements at KICKER’s® 2022 SEMA Show Booth

STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® will feature a booth filled with custom vehicles and big announcements in its return following a three-year absence at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Located in the LV Convention Center’s North Hall in booth 10709, KICKER will launch its 50th anniversary celebration with several jaw-dropping vehicles and a bevy of new products.

The company that manufactures KICKER products, Stillwater Designs and Audio, was founded in 1973 by Steve Irby and a partner, and Irby continues today as the president and drive behind KICKER award-winning audio gear. This year’s SEMA Show provides KICKER the opportunity to unveil new offerings like ST-Series Speakers and Bullet Tweeters, a PA line built to be as loud as possible while including KICKER’s dedication to sound quality.

This long-awaited line of KICKER SPL (sound pressure level) products makes its debut on the SEMA Show floor, installed in a highly customized 2021 Ford® Bronco that commemorates KICKER’s long-time relationship with SPL legend Team Gates and its record-setting Bronco from the early 2000s. The newer Bronco is loaded with four pair of seven-inch ST-Series midrange drivers, eight ST-Series bullet tweeters and nine SoloX® L7X 12-inch subwoofers. KICKER will also unveil nine, 3,600-watt Warhorse™ amplifiers, installed in a custom amp rack. ST-Series speakers are shipping and currently available; the other gear is expected to ship in 2023.

“KICKER is the originator of big bass,” said Drew Jones, owner of Bassahaulic Productions and designer of the Bronco’s 4th-order enclosure. “They’re going to be surprised at how good it will sound, and how long it will play. This is how systems should be installed and set up. With KICKER getting back into SPL competition, it will also help make the sport more approachable.”

A 1973 Chevy® C10 created by Hills Hot Rods and JD Glassworks will also be featured in the booth, sporting a powerful yet compact sound system not found in the truck 50 years ago on the showroom floor. A KICKER KEY® amplifier powers artfully integrated KS-Series Speakers, while a CX-Series amplifier provides signal to a single CompRT® thin 10-inch sub, all hidden behind custom mesh grilles.

Owned by offroad legend Robby Gordon, SpeedUTV® will add the limited-edition “El Jefe” UTV to the floor mix this year. This race-ready UTV is integrated with original equipment from KICKER – the new PX-Series five-channel powersports amplifier with a CompRT subwoofer and KM-Series all-weather speakers.

Expanding to its third brand in the booth, KICKER will also show its 100-watt MultiPro™ Tailgate System which can now be found as OE on the GMC® Hummer® EV. The Hummer joins the Sierra and the Canyon utilizing KICKER audio in its truck tailgates.
