Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

iPod Dockable

8-Pin Lightning Charge and Play


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.

This is a home or work party box!!! The sound blows away the Bose , the dre beats , and any other small loading dock type music box. This thing has a ton of bass!!! Great buy for the price, better sound and better price than the rest.

September 25, 2015

i would recommend this product to anyone looking for great sounding, clear, loud, quality speakers. they come in a relatively small package and the sound will NOT let you down. the remote is a huge plus if you're walking around and are busy. the clarity even at the highest volume is fantastic and it does not distort at any volume level. the subwoofer and designated tweeters and midrange woofers make every part of your music clear and loud. these will shake your room! they can be a little large for a compact space, but great for a bookshelf or a dorm room.

Excellent choice!

December 30, 2015

Spent a considerable amount of time searching for a speaker dock that was reasonably priced yet still offered great sound. Initially wanted a portable unit, but didn't find any that offered the sound quality I wanted. Finally discovered the Kicker IK5BTL and after hearing it, decided it was the only way to go. If you've had any experience with Kicker products, you already know about the quality built in. Its not real portable because of the need to plug it into an AC outlet, but the sound quality is excellent and it's easy to set up and operate. I felt it was a worthwhile trade-off for me. It might not rattle the windows like a full-blown sound system, but it comes very close and without any speaker rattle or distortion. Be sure to download the KickStart App when prompted to get the equalizer which really boosts the Amphitheater's capabilities. It also provides a jack for auxillary input if you want to connect your CD player, or other device. There is also a USB connection for charging and playback. Very versatile. The next best thing was the Sonic Electronix service. Ordered it online and had it at the doorstep in only a matter of a few days. Their price was the best I found as well. If there was anything I'd whine about, Kicker could have placed a small handle somewhere on the unit that would make it a bit easier to move from one location to another. Highly recommend the Kicker IK5BTL.

Kicker Amphitheater (41IK5BTL

February 1, 2016

I recommend this item to anyone looking for a small compact speaker that creates booming sound. I purchased one of these and I love it. The sound it creates is similar to if you had a car with subs in the back and is just outstanding sound and amazed me because I was not expecting so much bass and sound quality to be at its best. What makes it better is you have either choice, of aux, USB, dock, or Bluetooth and you cant get any better than that. They also shipped the product at the right arrival time as well. Very good product Thank you sonic electronics Well done!
