Our take on the Kenwood KCA-WR10

by Buck Pomerantz

Apply the proper bass tones to your music with Kenwood's optional bass boost remote controller, designed exclusively for the KAC-X1R, KAC-X10D, and KAC-X20 Excelon amplifiers. You can dial in up to 18 dB of boost for a formidable kick, then adjust the center point of the boost between 40 and 200 Hz to find the sweet spot in your vehicle.

The wired remote includes a 19.5-foot plug-in cable. Dimensions: 2-3/4"W x 1-1/4"H x 2-1/16"D. Warranty: 1 year.

This is a one band parametric EQ. This does not boost all frequencies evenly. It only boosts
the freq that you have dialed in on the freq dial. This changes the response of your system.
Any bass line that uses more that one note will have one freq stick out louder than the rest.
Your better off using an inline potentiometer with a small line level amp to give you a boost.
