This KickPort FX Bass Drum System pre-pack includes a Sonic Enhancement Insert for resonant side, as well as an FX Series batter side head insert. The combination of these implements and their design empower a drummer to enjoy studio-quality bass drum sound in any environment.
The KickPort's design enhances the sound of your kick drum by porting the kick drum in the same manner as a bass reflex speaker cabinet, which boosts low frequencies. It adds ideal dampening directly to the resonant head, which allows you to remove most-if not all-of the internal materials, thus reclaiming all of the natural resonance and tone of your drum. The KickPort bass drum enhancement also focuses the air as it exits the kick drum, creating a natural compression that increases punch. As if that wasn't enough, it's tunable!
Kickport's FX Series Sonic Enhancement Ports produce a clearer and more focused resonant note that dramatically improves the projection of the natural tone of your drum. The result of more than three years of research and development, these patented accessories also reduce unwanted overtones, enhance resonance and deliver an incredible three-dimensional sound in all environments.
Like all Kickport products, FX Series Sound Ports are compatible with your favorite brands, sizes, and styles of drums, heads; plus, compatibility with all of your drum microphones. This 2" insert is intended for kick drums.

I use Kickport Series on my bass drum, and it gives me a deep solid sound I love to hear from a bass drum.
I have been using the KickPort on my bass drum for a couple of years now and it has made the most impact on the sound, attack, resonance and low end tone. I now use the entire KickPort and FXPorts on all my drums. The snare FX port eliminates the overtone we all dread and really opens up the drum. The Tom FX ports enhance the sound of the Toms again by not needing anything to help reduce the overtones and deadening the sound. The Toms come to life and sound spectacular. This system in my opinion is the most affordable say to make your drums sound so much better both acoustically and even through a PA or in the studio.
I've been using the KickPort on my bass drum for months now, The Attack and bunch i get with this bad boy is unbelievable! Love the guys at KickPort! Keep innovating!!
I have been using a KickPort for about a year now and I can say that it has completely changed the way I expect my drum tones to sound. My new kit which consists of a 20" bass drum, the smallest I have used had a really noticeable overtone that was making regret choosing this size. Once I hooked up my one of a kind Green Port, everything changed! The drum now achieves a frequency that I could only have dreamed of! I am so happy that I made sure my band's new album had full use of my new KickPort! #itsbennyroseapproved
Best sound for my bass drum.. Love how enhances the sound.
This system is HOT! I don't think I'll have to use pillows again. The Kickport FX Bass Drum System works for all sizes of kick drums that exists. I use them personally on my 22"x 18" tour kits and 20"x18" small room kit, and 18"x16" Be Bop kit. They all sound great! I don't even have to mic the smaller kick drums sometimes. If you want the most out of your kick drum, THIS IS IT!
I use KickPort series on my kick drum because I love to hear my kick as clear as I do all my other drums an that's what kickport does even though it flows threw the front of the drum, you can hear it clearly an gives you so much more control in regards to dynamics in loud an quite playing.. its incredible an has been a blessing to drums an the sound drummers desire. -Clarence 'Klue" Lewis
In studio and live I depend on kickport and cajonport to add extra depth and presence. I have a kickport on all 5 of my kits. I proudly endorse these products because I am absolutely blown away with the difference they create.
If you're looking to enhance the natural sound and feel of your kick drum without killing it by stuffing pillows and blankets into it, Kickport has your solution! These babies smooth out the unwanted frequencies that can cause us to feel the need for muffling our drums while boosting the lower frequencies of your kick drum that allow you to feel the thump, and experience the warmth, tone, focus and attack of your drum. It's like installing a magic subwoofer into your kick drum. I initially used the original sound enhancement Kickport with incredible success, now with the addition of the pre-pack including the 2? FX port for the bass drum batter (back) head, my kick drum sound is just beautifully amazing! Killer! Using the combination of the 2" FX port with the original KickPort, I get even lower frequencies so massive that they can only be "felt", emphasizing a deeper, fuller, focused attack, with natural EQing, enhanced playability, clarity and even more tuning options. Using this Kickport package in the studio as well as in live gig situations has allowed me to get more of the natural tone, timber, and resonance out of my kick drums with very little to no external processed effects and no unwanted overtones. Amazing! Don't be fooled, the Kickports WILL give you incredible sound, response, and tuning options that you simply CAN NOT achieve without them. Contrary to what I had previously heard about them before trying them, that the "Kickports are primarily designed to make small drums sound bigger", truthfully these amazing ports do so much more for all of my bass drums. I've used them on kick drums ranging from 18" X 16" all the way up to 24" X 20" and the sound enhancement that I am experiencing is just incredible! Studio and sound engineers are blown away with the results of what the Kickports produce so naturally out of my drums! Kickports are super easy to install as well, within minutes you'll be on your way to your dream bass drum sound! Definitely check them out!
