Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
CEA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by JVC for the
KS-AX4302 amplifier comply with CEA-2006 Amplifier Power Standards from the CEA
(Consumer Electronics Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard
can display the CEA-2006 logo on their product.
Tri-Mode: When using appropriate passive crossovers on all
speakers, the KS-AX4302 can power two stereo speakers (4Ω minimum with a
high-pass passive crossover) and a single subwoofer (4Ω minimum with a
low-pass passive crossover) simultaneously.
4-Way Protection: The amplifier features a protection
circuit that will turn the unit off if any of the following four conditions
- Thermal: the operating temperature of
the amp gets too high
- Short Circuit: there is a short circuit
on one of the speaker wires
- Overload: the impedance of the connected
load is too low
- DC Offset: direct current is detected
on the speaker wires
LEDs: A blue LED on the top and a green LED on the right
side light to indicate the power is on. A red LED on the right side lights to
indicate the protection has engaged.
Internal Crossover: The amplifier's internal crossover can be
set to HPF (high-pass filter), LPF (low-pass filter), or Off (full range, the
crossover is bypassed). The crossover point is continuously variable from 50 Hz
to 400 Hz; the slope is 12dB/octave.
Power Connections: The power, ground, and remote inputs are
set screw terminals. JVC recommends 8 gauge wire minimum for power and ground;
the power and ground terminals will accept up to 4 gauge bare wire, the remote
terminal will accept up to 8 gauge bare wire.
Inputs: The KS-AX4302 offers both line-level and speaker-level
inputs. The supplied speaker-level input harness allows you to connect the input
to a receiver without preamp outputs, either aftermarket or factory.
Speaker Connections: The speaker outputs are also set screw
terminals. JVC recommends 8-18 gauge speaker wire; the terminals will accept up
to 8 gauge bare wire.
