Super thin amps fit in more places
Zak Billmeier grew up in southern Vermont and coastal Maine. After graduating from Mary Washington College with a Geography degree he still isn't sure quite what to do with, he eventually settled in the mountains of Central Virginia. He spends his free time chasing his daughter around, taking pictures, gardening and cooking. Zak traces the roots of his interest in electronic gadgets to the Casio wristwatch with a built-in calculator he received as a gift one year as a child. He joined Crutchfield's car A/V team in 2007.

The Reference Fit line of amplifiers from Kenwood Excelon packs a ton of power into a small chassis. These amps hit hard and can fit into tight spaces, if needed. And with mono, 4-channel, and 5-channel versions available, you're sure to find one that fits into your car audio upgrade plans.
Zak: I'm at the Kenwood booth at CES 2013 and Matt, tell us about the new Excelon Reference Fit amplifiers.
Matt: So we'll have three new amplifiers in the Reference Fit line, which are designed to be a really small chassis with a lot of power. The two — XR600-1 and the XR400-4 model — will only be 1-1/8" deep but will offer a lot of power. The Excelon XR600-1 will be 700 watts x 1 at 2-ohms and the XR400-4 will be 60 watts x 4 and can be bridged to be used with a subwoofer or high range speakers. So the XR900-5 basically combines the X600-1 and X400-4 into one chassis. It will offer a 60 x 4 4-channel amplifier as well as a 700 x 1 mono amplifier that can be ran at 2-ohms.
Zak: That's the Excelon Reference Fit amplifier line.
