Kenwood KFC-1079ie

Overview

Our take on the Kenwood KFC-1079ie

Your music will soar on the smooth highs and expressive mids of Kenwood's KFC-1079ie 4" speakers. A smooth, domed ring around the PEI balanced dome tweeter virtually eliminates "bounce back" — reflected sound waves that interfere with direct sound coming from the tweeter itself. You'll benefit from a sharper stereo image and better dispersion.

Kenwood's trademark pearl-mica injection-molded polypropylene cone delivers good power handling, impressive durability, and punchy bass response.

amazing little speakers

Written by: Matt from Greensboro, NC on May 23, 2005

I bought these Kenwoods over 2 years ago and they still sound as great as ever. I first had them in my '86 190 running on a JVC deck and they sounded great. I then put them in my '95 9000 and ran them on an Alpine CDM-9803 and they sounded terrific. I now have them hooked up to a 50X4 channel RMS Memphis amp and these little speakers handle the power surprisingly well. They will distort with a healthy dose of bass, but they aren't for pounding bass. I have them on high-pass filter and they have amazing detail. I compared them to the Pioneer, Boston FX series, and JL TR series 4in speakers and these Kenwoods top them all. the JL's have great bass response, but the Kenwoods have much better highs as well as good bass. The Pioneers lack the richness of the Kenwoods and don't take the power as well. The boston 4s don't have as good bass response as the Kenwoods. I highly recommend these speakers especially if you are looking for high sound quality and longevity.

Great Buy

Written by: Cristian from Dallas, TX on February 19, 2005

I needed some new quality speakers but didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I got these Kenwoods. They have great features at a very reasonable price, and so far I've been completely satisfied with my purchase. The sound these speakers put out is superb, crystal clear, and very accurate, especially the highs and upper range. If they're the only speakers in your system you'll obviously need a sub, but I really believe they'll add a new dimension to any sound system. For this price range and type of speaker, I wouldn't go with anything else.

Features

Image Enhancer: The KFC-1079ie is equipped with Kenwood's patented Image Enhancer surrounding the tweeters. Its smooth rounded surface eliminates most of the reflected sound waves that would interfere with the direct sound waves coming from the tweeters. The end result is a better dispersion pattern, less distortion, and clear high-frequency reproduction. 

Woofers: The woofer cones are silver Pearl Mica Injection-Molded Polypropylene. Uniform pearl mica crystals form an overlapping structure that adds strength and heat resistance to polypropylene; the result is reduced distortion and improved reliability.

Tweeters: The speakers have a 1" PEI balanced dome tweeter. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone. "Balanced dome" tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.

Surrounds: The speakers have a rubber surround for a smoother response.

Grilles: The supplied hard plastic grilles have a unique 3-spoke design with a cutout for the Image Enhancer.
