KENWOOD has introduced a series of Hi-Res Audio amplifiers, including subwoofer and mono-block amplifiers that provide better integration options for system designers, according to the company.
KENWOOD eXcelon XR601-1 is a single-channel power amplifier that is rated at 600 watts at two ohms. Its more powerful partner, the KENWOOD eXcelon XR1001-1, rates 1,000 watts at two ohms. Both feature speaker-level and low-level inputs, include a bass control knob and are scheduled to ship this month.
The new KSC-PSW8 amplified subwoofer features an eight-inch driver and 250-watt max amplifier in an enclosure suited for simpler installs under a truck’s rear bench seats.
For custom installs, the KENWOOD eXcelon XR-W804 handles 300 watts RMS through its single four-ohm input. It features a new, evenly dispersed spider to improve durability and an oversized diaphragm for lower frequency response. Despite the larger diaphragm, the speaker is designed to fit into a standard 8-inch subwoofer opening.
XR-W804 ships this month. It will also ship as the KENWOOD eXcelon P-XW804B in a down-firing, vented subwoofer enclosure.
