KICKER has introduced its Amphitheater BT2 wireless audio system. Built to rest on a desktop or bookshelf, it uses Bluetooth to pair with smartphones, tablets and computers.
You want specs? We got specs. The Amphitheater BT2 features a 50-watt DSP-optimized internal amplifier, five-inch drivers, 0.75-inch silk-dome tweeters and a six-inch square reflex subwoofer. A USB port is onboard for charging external devices, along with an auxiliary-input jack for connecting non-Bluetooth devices.
KICKER’s free KickStart app for iOS and Android delivers an eight-band equalizer, bass and treble sliders, and a “tight or wide spatialization” selection for soundstage control. Using the app, you can also load and save custom sound presets and, via its Facebook integration, tell your friends about the great music you’re listening to.
Designed to evoke visions of an actual amphitheater, it also looks pretty cool.
The BT2 succeeds the original BT, which included an iPod/iPhone dock.
