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.
DualMag Woofer Magnet
Technology: Kenwood's DualMag woofer
magnet technology uses two small but powerful 0.6oz neodymium magnets that
improve musical clarity and detail by precisely controlling the cone. The
magnets are placed inside the speaker voice coil with their like magnetic poles
facing each other. The resulting magnetic repulsion creates a magnetic field
that is much stronger and more symmetrical than conventional magnets.
Injection-molded Polypropylene Cone Woofers:
Polypropylene is used for the speaker cones because of its resilience, fast
response, and natural resistance to moisture. The pearl mica crystals are
uniform, and form an overlapping structure that lends strength and heat
resistance to the polypropylene. PBO is a high-performance fiber that has
superior tensile strength, thermal stability and very low moisture retention.
The results are tighter, clearer sound, reduced distortion, and improved
Butyl Rubber Surrounds:
Butyl rubber has greater internal loss than standard urethane, preventing
harmonic distortion at higher frequencies. It more efficiently absorbs edge
reflections that can cause audible distortion, resulting in clearer bass
HyperNyl Dome Tweeters:
This component system features 1" HyperNyl dome tweeters. HyperNyl is a
lightweight polymer with outstanding high-range response.
Tweeter Mounting Options:
The tweeters may be flush or surface mounted. The tweeters swivel inside the
flush mount sockets, but they do not swivel on the surface mount brackets.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
Flush Mount (swivel)
0.588" (screw depth)
K-Glow Tweeter Protection
Circuit: This tweeter protection
circuit uses an incandescent lamp to divert power from the tweeter at excessive
input levels. The lamp's impedance increases with heat, so, as the power to the
tweeter increases, the circuit absorbs more power, continually protecting the
tweeter from damage.
Selectable Tweeter Output Level:
Each crossover has a 3-position switch that allows you to select the tweeter
output level according to system requirements and personal preference. The
switches may be set to "-4dB", "-2dB" or "0dB".
The crossovers feature a 5kHz high-pass network for the tweeters and a 5kHz
low-pass network for the woofers.
The crossover inputs and outputs are gold-plated screw terminals.
There are two mounting holes in the base of each crossover.
This component system comes with a 1 year warranty
card, but the actual warranty is 2 years.
