Immersive Sound Technology
The sideKIK is really clever. It features Gear4music’s ‘Immersive Sound Technology’ (or IST) to give you the perfect sound for a large variety of applications. The inclusion and positioning of the 6" woofer ensures that you won't just hear bass, you'll feel it! This is excellent for providing you with an extended bass response to accurately reproduce low-frequency content, such as bass guitars or lower octaves of a digital piano. It faces directly forwards so the low frequency pulses around you help to generate an immersive sound. You'll certainly feel the benefit when practicing with an electronic drum kit. The sideKIK will make kick drums feel and sound just like the real thing!
What's more, the two 3.5" high-frequency tweeters have been carefully angled so it directs straight towards your upper body, making it the perfect floor monitor. The speakers innovative design doesn’t end here. The tweeters are offset away from each other to ensure maximum dispersion of the mid and high frequency spectrum. In short, you’re still going to get that same great sound, whether you’re directly in front of the speaker or whether you’re at the other side of the room. No compromise necessary.
The inclusion of EQ dials allow you to globally tweak the sound of the sideKIK's first and second inputs to adjust their tonality. The low-frequency band provides a gradual bump at 150Hz for body and presence (perfect for a bit more kick drum or bass guitar), whilst the high-frequency band at 7.5kHz offers an ultra-smooth sheen for "record-ready" results.
The wide range of connectivity options on the rear of the SideKIK makes it an invaluable asset. Two on-board combi-jack inputs allow you to directly connect either dynamic microphones or line-level sources such as electro-acoustic guitars, as well as electronic drum kits and keyboards.
Should you desire to connect your laptop, phone or tablet, channel 3 boasts a 3.5mm TRS minijack input which can be used for monitoring purposes. For stress-free, streamlined set-ups take advantage of Bluetooth connectivity, this transforms the monitor into a fully functional speaker to sit back and enjoy your favourite songs on. It can even be used to perform alongside backing tracks!
All connection ports are positioned on the back panel so you don’t have to fight with a cable just to tweak the volume! The large, stylish dials on the sideKIK are really accessible, meaning you won’t have to reach far if you need to tweak anything mid performance.
Stylish, compact design
Coming in at just under 450mm, the sideKIK is ultra-compact. This is perfect for integrating into your practice set-up; either set it underneath a keyboard stand or slot in around your digital drum frame. Or keep it out on display with its stylish and modern, all-black design, adding a touch of class to any environment.
It’s not just designed to look great either. The heavy duty, hardened plastic chassis combined with a toughened wrap around steel grille, means the speaker will take punishment from knocks or scrapes.
