Our take on the Kenwood KDC-258U

by Dave Delamere
Kenwood

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

The sound and the display

Kenwood's KDC-258U CD receiver delivers solid performance and plenty of features at a pretty nice price. You can adjust the variable color display so this Kenwood looks right at home in your dash, while dust covers protect the aux input and USB port.

Kenwood also built impressive amplification into this receiver, so you'll notice an improvement in the sound of your factory or aftermarket speakers. Select one of the eight preset EQ settings that suits your sound, or you can use the 3-band equalizer to adjust the tone for your separate sources. The low-pass frequency filter and phase control adjusts the bass going to your subwoofer, so you can maximize performance. You can enhance the sound of compressed MP3 and WMA audio files with the Sound Reconstruction feature.

One versatile USB port

The receiver's front-panel USB port allows you to access and control the music stored on your iPhone® or Android® phone. With your iPhone, you also have control over iHeartRadio® and Pandora® Internet radio stations. And if you have MP3, WMA, or WAV music files on a thumb drive, the USB port can handle those too. Here's a cool feature from Kenwood — Drive Change allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the Kenwood's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives.

    Audio Section

    16 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood KDC-258U utilizes a 16-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality with a Signal to Noise ratio up to 105dB.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood KDC-258U is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the KDC-258U are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels

    Selectable 2.5V Preamp Output: The KDC-258U features a 2.5-volt stereo preamp output that can be adjusted from a full-range rear speaker preamp output to a low-pass subwoofer preamp output (non-fading).

    Subwoofer Controls: The Kenwood KDC-258U offers the following subwoofer controls, when you have the unit's subwoofer preamp output activated.

    • Low Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output, when the output is set to Subwoofer. You can select from 85 Hz, 120 Hz, 160 Hz, or off.
    • Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
    • Subwoofer Level: Once the Subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level (-15 to +15) from the CD receiver.

    Speaker Settings: The Speaker Setting function tailors the head unit's audio settings according to the type of speakers in your vehicle. You may select a Speaker Setting of 'SP-Off' (flat/off), 'SP-OEM' (for OEM factory speaker systems), 'SP-6x9/6' (for systems with 6" and 6"x9" speakers), or 'SP-5/4' (for systems with 4" and 5" speakers).

    Preset EQ: Eight EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. Each preset has its own level settings for bass, midrange, and treble . You can choose from the following preset EQ curves; Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Drive EQ, or User. The Drive EQ mode is an EQ preset that helps reduce road noise. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's Bass (200Hz) , Midrange (2.5kHz), and Treble (12.5kHz) level from +/- 8dB.

    Note: You can store bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (CD, AM/FM, Aux, USB, iPod, and Pandora/iHeart Radio).

    Sound Enhancements: The head unit provides further sound enhancements for your car audio system.

    • Bass Boost: The Kenwood CD receiver features a Bass Boost control that can be set to the following levels (BB1, BB2, BB3, or Off).
    • Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes. There are 3 levels (LV1, LV2, or Off).
    • Sound Reconstruction: When MP3 or WMA files encoded at a low bit rate (less than 96 kbps, 44.1k, 48kHz) are played, the Sound Reconstruction function restores their high frequencies so the sound quality is closer to files encoded at a high bit rate. The processing is optimized for the compression format and the bit rate used. When Sound Reconstruction is Off, the unit plays the original sound stored in the audio file.

    Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one source to another. The available settings range from -8 to 0 (-8 to +8 for Aux source).

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Face: The Kenwood KDC-258U features a single front loading CD face that detaches from the chassis to deter theft. There is no protective face case included.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have a slightly older Kenwood unit in another car, and considering how much I liked that one, I decided to go with another, especially during Crutchfield's deal where you get MasterSheets, wiring, adapter, unit, free tax and shipping all for just the price of the Kenwood. I installed it the same day it came in the mail and wow. I am completely blown away at the difference it made in my car. My factory radio fluctuated power making for very awkward bass notes and cutting out at higher volumes. It didn't provide sufficient power to my Polk Audio speakers making me feel like I wasted my money on those. But with these speakers, I would never even have any use for an amplifier. 100% satisfied with the service and easiness Crutchfield provided. This company has been absolutely the best to work with!
    Pros:
    clear screen, gives speakers plenty of power, easy to use, feels quality and looks like a built in unit
    Cons:
    I'm not in my car right now using it!

    Decent unit for the price

    Written By Islander, Seattle,WA on Monday, October 13, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Unit was pretty easy to install with instructions supplied by Crutchfield. It looks nice, and has a good range of features - especially like the USB input on the front. Would like it to display the time when the unit is powered off. Not sure why they have remote controls for these car units - still scratching my head over that one.
    Pros:
    Great price, good features
    Cons:
    Sound quality probably could be better, but good enough for my ears...

    Great sound device. Amazing upgrade to the player I had in my Ranger and that was a replacement for the factory cassette player.
    Pros:
    Well known name and bunches of 'bells and whistles' to figure out.
    Cons:
    Not sure about the 'learning curve' involved with those 'bells and whistles.

    Kenwood KDC-258U Very Happy!

    Written By Robert, Alameda, CA on Tuesday, September 30, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Decided that it was time to replace the stock stereo in my 2005 Jeep Wrangler. I wanted to be able to use my MP3 player versus always bringing CD's with me. The install was easy as long as you follow directions and Crutchfield was good about letting me know just what to expect, such as needing to remove the support bar behind the factory stereo (which was very easy). Very happy with the sound, the features, and the price!
    Pros:
    Easy to install, great sound.
    Cons:
    The display is a bit faint in daytime.

    Good Stuff

    Written By Doug, Ocean View, NJ on Sunday, September 21, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    My Dodge Caravan radio, which sounded pretty good in its own right, finally went belly up when the cassette drive died. I played my iPOD through the unit with the help of a cassette adapter. With the Kenwood, all my issues have been solved. No cassette transport noise, no head noise, just pure response. And with the three bands of EQ, I'm a little closer to getting the response I want in the car. There's plenty enough power and great bass impact (I don't use any loudness or boost!). I also appreciate the ability to change the color scheme to match my dashboard colors.
    Pros:
    Easiest install I've ever done, bar none, thanks to the proper harnesses and accessories. Great overall performance
    Cons:
    Clock display has the digits a little too close to the AM/PM lettering

    Great value, lots of features, good sound quality, Crutchfield makes installation easy.
    Pros:
    Crutchfield ease of installation with the required mounting accessories for a small cost! WOW! I wouldn't go anywhere else. I don't believe that there is a CD player/receiver out there with this many features and sound quality for the price. Love the aux. inputs and the color changing display. Decent amplification for the price.
    Cons:
    Can't see the display on the brightest setting with top down

    Great Sound and Options

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Replaced my factory radio in my 2008 Hyundai Elantra with this stereo and it brought the factory speakers to life. Never anticipated they could sound so good. I did some research and price comparison online and there wasn't any big difference between Crutchfield and others. Went with Crutchfield for there customer support. Haven't even scratched the surface of other options.
    Pros:
    Easy installation in Elantra. Great sound quality. Excellent quality. Awesome value for price.
    Cons:
    Haven't checked out online options but have to go online to access some of them.

    I replaced one Kenwood with another. Slight oil pressure gage leak ruined the first one. The installation was very straight forward. Operation is simple to understand. Looks great, does everything that I would have expected from a Kenwood. Very happy with this unit and Crutchfield in general.
    Pros:
    Simple, Looks good, sounds good, price matched with what you get.

    Right out the box, very easy install and operation. Lots of gadgets to play with and make it my own. The color scheme is fun. I can leave it at one color or let it scroll through. Just that alone made me happy. The sound is clear, functions are easy to get to and the fit was awesome. Very happy that I got this deck versus another I had looked at. Kenwood has not failed me yet, and this continues the tradition!
    Pros:
    Functionality, Fit, Sound

    Kenwood Receiver

    Written By Darrell, NY on Saturday, April 12, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    All I use in my vehicles are Kenwood as they are the most powerful units on the market . I just installed this one in my Kia today and it made a huge difference in the sound even with factory speakers. It offers a host of features and has a multi color display. For the amount I paid for the unit it is a bargain and far better than the factory unit , there is no comparison. If your looking for a inexpensive upgrade to a high power unit with a large varieties of features then either this deck or any Kenwood will enhance your listening pleasure. Do not forget to order the wiring harness and mounting bracket as this will simplify your install and Crutchfield has all you need for this , no Crutchfield is not paying me for this review it is just I have bought several units from them and the tech support and equipment are great. Good luck with your upgrades. By the way ask when you are ordering about seconds and returns as they offer a bunch of gear that are new and are still warrantied , I bought my Bazooka Sub woofer that was a return and have no issues with it and saved a bunch of money.
    Pros:
    Just a lot of praise for fantastic equip.
    Cons:
    No complaints.

    I've always been a Pioneer guy, but I'm very impressed with this Kenwood 258U head unit. First time I've ever had a Kenwood in any of my cars. Install was a breeze with the Crutchfield MasterSheets and the project took me about an hour and a half. I must admit I had to wrestle with the kit to get the unit flush behind my trim, but other than that the project was easy. My factory speakers definitely sound a lot better, but sooner or later (preferably sooner) I will be replacing them with some quality speakers. There are a lot of features packed into the KDC-258U and it just puts my old Delco factory radio to shame. Love it, would definitely recommend.
