Kicker KX100.2 Stereo Amplifier User Manual

All amplifiers generate heat under normal operation. Be sure to choose a location that allows adequate ventilation for the amplifier. Also consider that the air temperature inside an automobiles luggage compartment can reach upwards of 140

Fahrenheit (60 Celsius). An amplifier mounted here may require additional cooling tactics such as fans or venting ducts to the passenger compartment to allow cool operation. If possible, mount the amplifier in the climate-controlled passenger compartment.

With the EndKap removed, drill four holes using a 7/64

(11mm) drill bit and use the supplied #8 screws to mount the amplifier.

Use supplied #8 Mounting Screws

Signal can be input into the amplifier using either the low level

RCA input connections or the high level (speaker level) input connections. Using the low level RCA connections is the preferred method. Use the high level inputs only if your source unit does not have low level RCA type outputs.

WARNING-Use Only One...

Never Both At The Same Time!!!



When working with power connections it is always recommended that you disconnect the battery to prevent accidents.

The ground should be connected to the amplifier first before making any of the other connections. This wire should be as short as possible (24 inches or less) and connected to a paintand corrosion-free solid metal area of the cars chassis. Use the same gauge wire as recommended for the amplifiers power connection to the battery. Adding an additional ground wire between the car batterys negative post and the car chassis of this same gauge (or larger) is also recommended.

If you ever need to remove the amplifier from the vehicle after it has been installed, the ground wire should be the last wire disconnected from the amplifier--just the opposite as when you installed it.


A fuse must be installed within 18 inches of the battery to protect the power wire feeding your amplifier. This fuse should be of at least the same value used in the amplifier but no higher than the capacity of the wire. See the chart below for wire size
