July 12, 2012 Misleading But Still The Loudest Dock I've Ever Heard

I got this expecting a loud dock. Wow! it's definately loud. There are a few things i want to address though.

-The Subwoofer...is not a subwoofer. it's a passive radiator. Additionally, it is INCREDIBLY "One-note." It loves the 65hz range and nothing else. People say that it doesn't miss a note, but trust me it does. I expected this, however, so i planned to run this with a home audio sub. That leads me to the RCA outputs.

-The RCA outputs don't change volume!!! Kicker says you can connect this to other components with them, but you can't since they won't change volume. -_- Now i have to run my ipod to a fiio E6, to a splitter. And then connect this and the sub to the split outputs. Also, i cant use the remote.

-The Amp: This part I actually was positive about! The amp has a built in limiter, which is great! Instead of clipping, your music will just cut out. This is your cue to turn the bass down. (When i listen to rap at volume 40, the bass has to be at -9. When i hook up that sub, it won't be a big deal though.

I've had this boombox for a year now it is a very great sounding stereo. I do recommend this. I have an iPhone and it gets rattled off. It does need more bass though. The 6" sub is cute.
