Product Details

Kenwood eXcelon Mono Digital Power Amplifier - XR1000-1

Key Features:

  • Excelon Performance & Quality
    eXcelon products incorporate the latest technologies and deliver the highest sonic performance. From advanced audio tuning capabilities, crossover and equalizer systems, high voltage preouts and two-year warranty, eXcelon represents the very best product available.
  • Small Footprint Design
    Reference-Fit amplifiers are KENWOOD's best sounding amps and have one of the smallest footprints in their class, making them the perfect solution for vehicle installation where space is at a premium. This compact size was made possible by the development of a high-density mount circuit board in conjunction with an enhanced air cooling and heat control systems. KENWOOD's created a compact amplifier that enables installation in tight locations previously restricted to lower performance amps. This is ideal for users who do not wish to sacrifice space or prefer a stealth installation.
  • Air Cooling
    By positioning the fan in close proximity to heat producing circuitry, heat is dissipated efficiently. This allows the amplifier to operate at comfortable temperature levels even under the most stressful conditions.
  • Variable Low-Pass Filter
    Filters high frequencies out of the music and improves efficiency and sound quality by allowing only the low frequencies to pass to the subwoofer.
  • Gold-Plated Line Input
    Terminals This type of connector is non-corrosive and will maintain conductivity for long periods of time. Gold-plated connectors inherently have lower contact resistance resulting in wider frequency response, lower distortion with improved dynamic range and signal to noise ratio.
  • Battery/Ground Terminals
    These HEX-type terminals can accommodate up to AWG 4 - AWG 6 battery and ground wire thickness for better voltage maintenance from the vehicle's battery. The HEX type design allows for maximum tightening and contact onto the wire.
  • peaker Output Terminals
    These HEX-type terminals can accommodate up to AWG 8 - AWG 12 speaker wire thickness for better signal delivery to speakers. The HEX type design allows for maximum tightening and contact onto the wire.
