Kicker Unveils Bullfrog Jump Outdoor Audio System for Active Outdoor Lifestyles

STILLWATER, OK (07.18.2016) – KICKER Lifestyle Products today debuted its new top-of-the-line portable audio powerhouse that plays deep, loud and clear in nearly any environment.

The waterproof KICKER Bullfrog Jump is a self-contained, high-performance 2.1-channel audio system featuring two 4-inch drivers and two 3-inch x 4 passive subwoofers housed in a near-impenetrable cabinet that is specifically voiced to sound great inside and even better outdoors, from tailgate parties, the campsite in the yard, on a boat, and anywhere else music and fun are welcome. Available in two color options – green/black and gray/white — Bullfrog looks as good as it sounds.

“Bullfrog Jump is, quite simply, the embodiment of KICKER’s 43-year history as a leader in audio engineering, wrapped up in one of the most intelligently designed packages on the market,” said Jeremy Bale, KICKER Lifestyle Products’ Brand Manager. “Our design team set out to make this more than our top-of-the-line streaming speaker. From the start, our goal was to create the ultimate audio system for anybody who feels that music is as essential as food and water for their outdoor gatherings.”

Similar to its namesake, KICKER’s Bullfrog Jump, which is the first in a line of high-output Bullfrog speakers, creates a sound that is deep and resonant, with a sense of authority and a call to join the fun. Bullfrog streams Bluetooth stereo audio, and it includes FM radio for when it is time to listen to the big game and favorite local stations.

As powerful as Bullfrog Jump is on its own, KICKER added the DoubleKick feature providing an easy daisy-chain option for two Bullfrogs via Bluetooth. Similarly, its 3.5mm TRS stereo auxiliary output allows for daisy-chaining multiple Bullfrog systems to accommodate any listening scenario. A 3.5mm input jack is also available for connecting a portable audio player when Bluetooth isn’t available.

The speaker’s sonics are big and detailed, with KICKER’s signature bass and full-range output. Bullfrog fills the backyard, basecamp and the parking lot with a 360-degree sound field that that reaches around the listening area to give everyone the best seat in the house. Its IP66 rating means that it can stand up to nearly any type of weather conditions for as long as the party might last.

Bullfrog’s rechargeable battery lasts up to 20 hours, with average listening, and there is a dedicated USB charge-out port to ensure that mobile devices have the energy to keep up with such a powerful system. An easy-carry handle makes it convenient to bring Bullfrog Jump wherever the party happens to be.
