Two 10-inch SVC 8-Ohm Woofers
MOSFET Switching Power Supply: The Kenwood KAC-5204
Two-Channel amplifier is equipped with a MOSFET switching power supply. 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.
CEA-2006 Compliant: CEA-2006 is a new system of testing &
measurement methods for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard
advocates a uniform method for determining an amplifier's RMS power output and
signal-to-noise ratio. The criteria for measuring power uses a DC input voltage
of 14.4 volts and the RMS power output is measured into a 4-ohm load, with 1% or
less Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) plus noise, and at a frequency range (for
full range amplifiers) of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. Signal-to-Noise ratio is measured
in weighted absolute decibels (dBA) at a reference of 1 watt into 4 ohms.
CEA-2006 allows consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers on an equal
basis. The Kenwood KAC-5204 under CEA-2006 regulations is rated at 60 Watts RMS
x 2 channels with a 75 dBA signal to noise ratio.
2-Ohm Stable: The amplifier
can support a 2-ohm stereo load. The amplifier is rated at 75 watts RMS x
2-channel in 2-ohms.
Bridgeable: The two-channel amplifier can be bridged for a
mono 4-ohm load. The amplifier is rated at 150 watts x 1-channel RMS when bridged.
Controls: The amplifier is
equipped with the following controls.
- Input Sensitivity Control: Set this control according to the
pre-output level of your connected headunit, or to the maximum power output
of your factory radio. The input sensitivity control range is 0.2V to 5.0V.
- Low Pass Crossover: The amplifier features a fixed 80Hz low-pass
filter which can be turned On or Off.
Power Indicator: When the power is turned on to the
amplifier, the Power indicator (on top of the amp) will light up red. This
indicator will turn off with the amplifier and will turn off if the amplifier
goes into protect mode.
Cast Aluminum Heat Sink: The Kenwood KAC-5204 utilizes a
cast aluminum heat sink design to ensure that the amplifier stays at its optimal
The amplifier features protection circuits that will turn the amp off in case of
the following events:
- Speaker output contacts ground.
Speaker wire short-circuits.
Unit malfunctions and DC is sent to
- Internal temperature is too high.
Loss of ground of head unit or amp.
amplifier is equipped with the following connections.
- Battery: Screw terminal (accepts up to 4 gauge wire).
Screw terminal (accepts up to 4 gauge wire).
Power Control (Remote Turn-on):
Screw terminal (accepts up to 8 gauge wire).
Two pair of screw terminals (accepts up to 8 gauge wire).
Line In: 1 pair of RCA inputs.
- Speaker-level input:
Multi-pin input for use with included speaker level input harness
KAC-5204 comes with a two channel speaker level input harness. Once you splice
the speaker wires from the receiver to the harness, you have
plug-in convenience to the amplifier. This feature makes it easier to add an
amplifier to a factory radio or to a receiver with no preamp outputs. The maximum
power output from the source receiver can be no more than 40 watts.
The amplifier is equipped with a 25-amp ATC fuse.
Two 10-inch SVC 8-Ohm Woofers
Woofer: The cone is constructed of polypropylene which is
lightweight, efficient, and durable.
Surround Material: The woofer utilizes a high excursion
urethane foam for added durability and better bass performance.
Basket: The woofer features a black stamped-steel basket for added
The KFC-W110S can be mounted in either a sealed or ported enclosure.
- Sealed Box Volume: The sealed box sizes recommended by
Kenwood range from 0.6 cu/ft to 1.6 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size
recommended by Kenwood is 1.0 cu/ft.
- Ported Box Volume: The ported box sizes recommended by Kenwood
range from 0.75 cu/ft to 1.75 cu/ft. Within this range, the ideal size
recommended by Kenwood is 1.25 cu/ft using a 3" diameter and 7" length port.
