  • iOS 11 killed the Kicker Jan 27, 2018

    By Tux 1
    I've always loved the Kicker brand, had a lot of Kicker products through the years. I’m currently running 2ohm Dual voice coil 10’s under the seat in my Sierra been shaking the truck since 2007. When I saw the Amphitheater I was hoping I got the same quality product well I was wrong. It’s way better it’s like I’m at a concert, and with the app you can adjust it for any party, occasion, or any ear lol. Since the update to iOS 11 all I can do is use the eq on the iPhone. I hope you update the Kickstart app so all of us users can get back to all the great features we enjoyed before and maybe even more if possible...... hint hint. Please update this app

    I absolutely love my kicker and the bluetooth is wonderful but I just got a new phone and my kicker bluetooth has always worked fantastic with my old phone but I noticed now for some reason the bluetooth wont work? Not sure if this is temporary with the iPhone iOS versions being incompatible (though not sure why this would be) but whenever I turn my bluetooth on on my phone it doesn't bring up anything I can connect to for my kicker. Just brought this up incase it wasn't just an iOS difference. (iOS 8.1 my phone has, its an iPhone 6)

    This app works every time my iPhone 6S (iOS 9.3.5 & the ones before too) this a a good app it could have more options like a spectrum analyzer and a volume indicator like numbers or anything u never know what volume level u r on Why someone doesn't use the radio bc BT isn't working for some reason (usually u hit forget BT and reinstall) when it has every input available USB,1/8 jack and, 8 pin dock.

    Love everything about the amphitheater the only thing that Stillwater needs to do is update the app to the new iOS 11 i can’t connect to the amphitheater wirelessly I would have to connect a wire to it. Which is not bad but I would like to have the convenience to walk away and use my phone from time to time. Don’t get me wrong I Love everything about kicker.
  • Update system Nov 3, 2017

    By PurpleMist13
    Please update to iOS11 for iPhones and iPads. I love my kicker and want to continue to use it but lately my music skips even when my phone is in the same room. I’m hoping it can be solved by a simple update of the system to the newest apple setting. Other than that, I love my kicker as stated earlier and will use it until I can’t use it no more. ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪

    Unfortunately there will be no app update for the Ampitheater. Kicker says they are no longer manufacturing products that will use that app (I assume no more Ampitheaters). My speaker works fine, just no longer a way to take advantage of its full sound potential. SHAME ON YOU KICKER!!! YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE APP!!!
  • Ik5btl Aug 6, 2020

    By UncleChubs
    I have the ik5btl and the bf400 the bf400 comes nowhere close to deep sound and bass that comes from the ik5btl I just wish the app would get updated so I could use the equalizer function on my iPhone X running iOS 13.5

    Love my kicker amphitheater. However would like to use to kick start app I was forced to install. All the app needs is to update software for compatibility with iPhone iOS 11, my friend has same problem on his Samsung. Other than that music sounds great. App was good too
  • Please update Sep 18, 2018

    I love my kicker amphitheater, but it won’t quit blinking red. Along with this, I am not able to use the app. I wish there were some way to help.

  • Kicker, you and your products are dead to me! Jul 2, 2018

    By jfoster120
    Kicker, your refusal to update the KickStart iOS app is a strong slap in the face to this consumer. So what if you no longer manufacture the Amphitheater line. We consumers bought the product with the assumption it would provide us with full-featured performance for years to come. My interest in any of your current and future products ended with this appalling breach of product support so early into its expected life cycle. Goodbye Kicker. May you reap what you sow.
  • Please update this app Mar 4, 2017

    By Andy Lauri
    Please Kicker update this app. Don't abandon it. Also please work on the firmware. I think that it is capable of more than you have left it at. It is beginning to feel half baked. You have been legendary in speakers. The more speakers that you have out there the better for you it doesn't matter if they are "old" or new models, brand recognition of a good quality, well maintained product will get people to recommend your product.
  • Needs updated Sep 20, 2017

    By Itsmenks
    Please update this app. I still use it and I see you still sell the kicker amphitheater. The website tells you there is an app for customization to download. Can't use it with the new iOS.

    By News hound too
    Either the app or the unit itself is junk. Bluetooth stopped working properly within a year. When docked the "full charge" tone repeats...unless your phone is not at 100%. Severely disappointed and thinkin twice about spending with Kicker ever again. You "got me" for about $150.

  • PLEASE UPDATE APP FOR IPAD LATEST IOS. Nov 27, 2018

    By Sir yes sir, sir
    Five stars for what you have always been. And for knowing you won’t let your supporters down. And jazz it up. Volume control, indicators. More preset slots. You’ll be glad you did. Faithfully waiting, it can’t be that hard for smart people like you have working for you. Thanks in advance.

    I wish I'd known it doesn't work with it. I hope there's a plan to fix this issue quickly. This cost too much to just sit in the dining room. Loved it with my 4S. Used it ALL the time.
