STILLWATER, OK (06.25.2015) – KICKER has begun shipping the IQ-Series Interface, also known as IQI, which is the brand’s gateway to wireless Bluetooth connectivity in a vehicle’s audio system. The IQI, working in conjunction with KICKER’s elite Q-Class line of IQ-Series Amplifiers, adds an evolutionary step in mobile-audio amplification and convenience, literally putting digital processing functions in the user’s hands in the form of the TWEEQ App downloaded to a smartphone or tablet. The TWEEQ App, which takes audio-system functionality to incredible depths with comprehensive wireless amplifier control, is now available for free on iTunes to IQ-Series users.
The KICKER IQI and IQ-Series Amplifiers are available exclusively at Authorized KICKER Q-Class Retailer locations. The MSRP for IQI is $599.95, and the list of Q-Class retailers can be found at kicker.com.
For the first time ever, the IQI unit with Bluetooth puts the user in a wireless realm, letting him or her completely control the TWEEQ processing software and IQ-Series Amplifiers from a mobile device with no restricting cables. IQI also allows the streaming of digital programming without the need for a traditional source/radio unit. Mobile-audio novices will be thrilled by the ease of use and wireless convenience of the TWEEQ App; experts will delight in new expanded possibilities offered.
The complete KICKER IQ-Series is groundbreaking due to the fact that the complementary TWEEQ software allows the user to configure his or her audio setup regardless of technical knowledge. The user can choose a beginner’s level using the program’s quick-start, set-up wizard which automatically walks the listener through step-by-step processing, or choose an advanced level to “tweak” crucial amp and speaker settings with digital pinpoint accuracy. By placing advanced equalization tools into a visually sharp and easy-to-use graphical user interface, KICKER has vastly simplified a once daunting manual process that required real-time analyzers and other complicated professional-grade gear. In addition to the TWEEQ App being available wirelessly using IQI, the TWEEQ software program is also accessible by download to a PC from the kicker.com website (the PC must be connected to an IQ Amplifier using a mini USB cable.).
