Product Details

Kenwood In-Dash CD/MP3/WMA Receiver, Model EZ500

Kenwood has created an innovative CD/MP3/WMA receiver that combines simple-to-use operation with advanced features and technologies. The EZ500 has a flip-down, removable faceplate, and large rubber-grip knobs that let users select options quickly and easily--great for folks who dislike fiddling with the tiny buttons found on most modern receivers. Other features include memory presets, built-in amplifier mute option, a 10-key remote control, selectable key illumination and CD/MP3/WMA playback. Elegant cosmetics and simple interface make the EZ500 truly easy use.

Features:

  • Flip-Down Removable Faceplate with Carrying Case
  • High-Pass and Low-Pass Electronic Crossovers
  • Maximum Output Power: 50 Watts x 4
  • Plays MP3 and WMA-Encoded CD-R/RWs and Conventional CD, CD-R/RW Discs
  • System Q EX Sound Control
    Five factory pre-set equalization curves (Rock, Top40, Pops, Jazz and Easy, plus a flat setting) and three speaker matching curves (OEM, 6x9, 5/4 plus a flat setting) that can be combined to give the user extreme flexibility over the sound's tonal character. The preset curves include midrange contouring, giving music more clarity and presence. System Q EX allows the user to modify the preset curves by changing the amplitude of the bass, midrange and treble compensation, and the Q of the bass and midrange compensation. The new curves can then be saved as presets for the future recall.

Power Ratings

  • Full Bandwidth Power (less than 1% THD): 22 Watts x 4
    • Unlike other brands, Kenwood head units are rated at full bandwidth power (from very low to very high frequencies) with less than 1% THD. This more accurately shows how the unit will perform when playing music.
  • Maximum Output Power: 50 Watts x 4

Audio

  • Attenuator with Smooth Volume Return
    Drops the volume by a preset level. Smooth Volume Return gradually increases the volume to the original level when the ATT button is pressed a second time, eliminating a jarring change in volume.
  • Dual-Zone Audio Control
  • Electronic Audio Control (Volume, Balance, Fader)
  • Front/Rear Fader
    Controls both the speaker level (power) and preamp level (front and rear RCA preouts) levels at the same time with a single control. This makes it easy to change the system's front/rear balance even if it has external amplifiers.
  • High-Pass Electronic Crossover: 100/125/170Hz/Through, 12dB/oct
  • Loudness Control
    Built-in EQ curve designed to compensate for the human ear's lack of sensitivity to low and high frequencies at low volume levels, giving music a richer, fuller sound. It automatically defeats when the volume is approximately 3/4 of the maximum level.
  • Low-Pass Electronic Crossover: 50/80/120Hz/Through, 12dB/oct
  • Preouts: Front, Rear, and Non-Fading
  • Source Tone Memory
    Remembers and recalls the most recent tone settings for each source (cassette, tuner, CD), eliminating the need for readjustments.
  • System Q EX Sound Control
    Five factory pre-set equalization curves (Rock, Top40, Pops, Jazz and Easy, plus a flat setting) and three speaker matching curves (OEM, 6x9, 5/4 plus a flat setting) that can be combined to give the user extreme flexibility over the sound's tonal character. The preset curves include midrange contouring, giving music more clarity and presence. System Q EX allows the user to modify the preset curves by changing the amplitude of the bass, midrange and treble compensation, and the Q of the bass and midrange compensation. The new curves can then be saved as presets for the future recall.
