Detachable Face: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X695 features a single
front loading CD face that detaches from the chassis to deter theft. The
head unit includes a cloth pouch for storing the face-plate when detached. A
face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.
Note: An optional soft face case (142DFC1X,
sold separately) can also be purchased for this unit.
Fluorescent Display: The Kenwood head unit features a
13-character bluish white backlit fluorescent display with blue button illumination.
Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the unit is in
Standby mode, the face/button illumination is "keyed." In addition, while the
unit is in Standby mode, you can turn the clock display on or off. When the
Clock Display is turned on and the unit is in Standby mode, the Clock Display is
also "keyed." Pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off
Display Dimmer: The display has two brightness settings to
adjust the brightness of the display according to the surrounding illumination.
You can change this setting within the menu from On or Off.
Demo Mode: This unit features a Demo mode which can be
turned "on" or "off" within the menu.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X695 utilizes a
24-bit digital to analog converter for superior CD sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X695 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-X695 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
Rotary Volume Control: The CD receiver uses a 3-way rotary
volume control that increases and decreases the volume of the stereo from 0 to
35. The rotary knob also controls other audio settings such as Balance, Fader,
Bass, Mid, Treble and preset EQ settings. In addition, the rotary knob allows
you to scroll through and select your music tracks when the Music Search
function is activated.
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
Supreme Setting: When MP3, WMA, and AAC files encoded at a low bit
rate (less than 96 kbps, 44.1k, 48kHz) are played, the Supreme Setting 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 the Supreme Setting is Off, the unit plays the original
sound stored in the audio file.
Speaker Settings: The Speaker Setting function tailors the
System Q Sound Control settings according to the type of speakers in your
vehicle. You may select a Speaker Setting of "SP Off" (flat), "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).
System Q Sound Control: 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 (100Hz), midrange (1kHz),
and treble (12.5kHz). You can choose from the following preset EQ curves - Rock,
Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Game, and User.
Detail Audio Control: The Excelon KDC-X695 features
independent Bass, Treble and Midrange control when the System Q Sound Control is
in User mode. The Detail Audio Control allows you to adjust the following
settings for the Bass, Treble and Mid frequency levels.
