MP3 should not be confused with MPEG-3. MP3 files are the third audio layer of a MPEG-1 file. The compression algorithm of a MP3 file reduces the file size while keeping the audio quality.

Yes (Dock Built-In)


Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

Rear 3.5mm Audio Input
Headphone Output
If the unit is capable of outputting audio to a pair of headphones, this is the type of jack that makes the connection.

Kenosha, wi

Kicka$$ system for the price

December 30, 2014

I was skeptical buying a refurbished sound system, seeing as how it was nearly half price. Although I have zero complaints on it. It's loud, hits bass well, and at a great price.

good product for the money

December 30, 2014

i bought this to use in my garage. the bluetooth is super simple to pair and works great. sound quality for the money is very nice. good mids and highs. the passive radiator "sub" on the back lacks a little but really you can't expect too much bass from a 6" speaker anyway. all in all for $100 or so it's a great deal and i enjoy it

1'S kicker ampitheater is awesome. I have Bose Wave radios and Bose 901'S and 301'S. the amphitheater is leaps and bounds above the wave radio in terms of deep rich bass and warm mid bass as well as very tame HIs nothing too bright. I would any day of the week buy this over a wave radio and factory refurbished for under a hundred bucks let me buy a pallet. don't hesitate this thing is as badass as it looks I should note though the square on the back is a passive radiator. I can't say enough about how impressed I am I didn't think I would be but I am and that's an honest review.

Awesome Sound

July 13, 2015

Very nice from its older model. Too bad it does not have a built in handle like the old model. Beside that it is bluetooth which is nice. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Had the older model and was happy with it. This one has more feature and bigger front load drivers.

can I order a cord where this can be used in my car ?
Vickie K on Dec 6, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Vickie,

There is no such proprietary cable for that application. It will require a traditional Power Inverter, that aren't very practical in some situations.
