Kenwood KDC-148 In Dash CD Receiver - KDC148

You can stay within your budget and still enjoy some nice perks with Kenwood's KDC-148 CD receiver. Not only will you get a strong built-in amplifier that delivers plenty of clean power, but you can also shape the sound with a 3-band equalizer and a potent bass boost. Switchable red or blue button illumination lets you match the cosmetics to your car's dashboard, and there's a remote control for quick volume and system adjustments.

User-friendly controls

The receiver's well-designed control panel features a handy dial that gives you instant access to all major functions, with a bright 11-digit fluorescent display for song and system information. You can play your prerecorded and recordable CDs, even discs filled with MP3 or WMA music files. "Search" and "Return" buttons let you zip through your MP3 and WMA files, so you can find the song you want in a flash. If you've got a portable music player, this receiver features an handy illuminated auxiliary input.

Adding an amp?

A set of preamp outputs allows easy connection to an outboard amplifier. If you're adding a subwoofer, you can switch the outputs to sub mode, activating a low-pass filter and level adjustment so you can control the bass from the front seat.
