rd is right. Kicker has a dual zone controller that is very flexible. Let's chat tomorrow; I bet I can help!

Depending on which amp you buy from Exile you get a bass volume control.

If you buy a deddicated sub amp, 600.1, 1500.1, or the 2500.1 then they all come with a bass volume control.

If you buy a standard multi channel amp and use it as a sub amp then you will need a seperate bass control.

alright good cuz i when i instaled the sub in my truck it had a bass control and didnt know if the monoblock amp from exile had that to. and are these duel zone set ups just plug and play? iv done plenty of installs in cars but have never needed to have duel controls so i dont know much about them

Yes they are all plug and play. You dont readjust anything with the amps. This is just a device inbetween the amps and HU that becomes a seperate volume control.

Might want to call and ask Brian then. My 1500.1 came with one, and so did my 2500.1 The 500.1 which was replaced with a 600.1 in my truck even came with one.

The little phone jack on the amp is the plug in for the volume control.
