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.
Multi-Channel Design: The KAC-7005PS is basically three amps
built into one chassis, two full-range 2-channel amps (A and B), typically powering
the front and rear speakers, and one mono amp to power a subwoofer. Either of the
full-range amps can also be bridged to one channel.
CEA 2006 Compliant: The amplifier's power and signal to noise
ratio specifications are measured according to CEA-2006 standards, developed by
the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards allow you to accurately
compare the rated power output of all CEA 2006-compliant amplifiers. Manufacturers
who adhere to the standards can display the CEA 2006 logo on their products and
packaging. The CEA-2006 compliant power output is 40 watts RMS x 4 (into 4Ω,
20-20,000 Hz, no more than 1.0% THD+N, 14.4 volt power supply) plus 300 watts RMS
x 1 (into 4Ω, 20-200 Hz, no more than 1.0% THD+N, 14.4 volt power supply).
The CEA-2006 compliant signal to noise ratio is 80 dBA (at 1 watt into 4Ω).
Specifications: The manual also lists these non CEA-2006
- Full-Range Channels:
- 2Ω: 50 watts x 4 (at 1
kHz, no more than 0.5% THD)
- Bridged: 100 watts x 2 (at
100 Hz, no more than 0.5% THD)
- Subwoofer Channel: 500 watts x 1-channel
(into 2Ω, at 100 Hz, no more than 0.5% THD)
- Signal to Noise Ratio: 100 dB (at rated
Cooling Fan: There is a cooling fan
to help dissipate heat and ensure cool, reliable operation. Make sure
not to block the vents or the fan when installing the amplifier.
Input Sensitivity: The KAC-7005PS features independent gain
controls for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels. The input sensitivity of
each is adjustable from 200 mV to 5.0 volts.
High-Pass Filter: The front and rear amps have individual
switches to set the built-in crossovers to high-pass or off (full-range). The
crossover points are independently adjustable from 50-200 Hz. The high-pass
crossover slope is 12 dB/octave.
Low-Pass Filter: The subwoofer channel's low-pass crossover
is always engaged (it cannot be bypassed). The crossover point is adjustable from
50-200 Hz and the slope is 24 dB/octave.
Bass Boost: The subwoofer's bass boost circuit is centered at 40 Hz;
boost is variable from 0 to +18 dB.
Power And Ground Terminals: The amplifier features screw
terminal power and ground terminals. They will accommodate spade connectors up
to 0.55" wide.
Remote Turn-On Terminal: The remote turn-on is a screw
terminal that will accommodate spade connectors up to 0.35" wide.
Speaker Terminals: The five pair of speaker terminals are
screw terminals and will accommodate spade connectors up to 0.35" wide.
Signal Inputs: The amplifier features three pair of RCA input
connections, A, B, and Sub.
Fuses: Two 40-amp ATO fuses are installed in the amplifier

when purchased from Crutchfield. Kenwood offers Crutchfield customers an extra
60 days extended warranty beyond the 30-day Kenwood Limited Warranty for
Refurbished Product that comes in the box.
