Kenwood KAC-801


The ultimate in automotive power amplifiers is the KAC-801, packing a punch of 50 watts per channel across the range of 50Hz to 20 kHz at no more than 1% total harmonic distortion, reaching 70 watts at normal driving speeds.

To obtain this output from the 12-volt car battery, a special dc/dc converter is incorporated, together with an efficient electronic fault protection circuit that affords total protection for all circuits and speakers against wiring shorts or overloads.

The KAC-801 is intended mainly for remote installation, such as in the trunk; for this reason there is only a single red LED on its fascia to indicate power status.

However, its slender size at just under 2-3/4 inches means that it can also be effectively mounted under a seat.

With the KAC-801, high-fidelity inside the car reaches the state-of-the art.
