Give your car stereo that final tweak with the Kenwood KGC-6042A. You'll enjoy tone control precise enough to coax noticeably improved sound from even a high-end system.

Command 9 normal bands plus two with variable center frequencies (30-800 Hz and 800-16k Hz) with the KGC-6042A. These parametric (variable) bands really let you zero in within a given frequency range. So it's a snap to dial up your favorite lead guitar sound, from smooth, violin-like sustain to a percussive snap and twang.

Get a front-to-rear fader for dual-amp balancing and for adjusting the rear-fill, even with a head unit that has only one pair of pre-outs. The low-pass "sub-out" set of pre-amp outputs includes level control. And the KGC-6042A engages high-pass crossovers on the front and rear channels whenever this subwoofer output is in use.

Important Note: This unit has no built-in amplifier — must be used in conjunction with one or more external amplifiers.

  • two sets of full-range outputs with high-pass filter that engages when subwoofer output is in use.
  • subwoofer output has adjustable level control (up to +10 dB).

Features

Illumination:

  • GRN/ORG: Switch changes the color of the rings around the fader and EQ and SUB knobs only from green to amber.
  • Slide Controls: Are always amber.
  • Subwoofer Controls: Are always green.

Note: The switch for changing illumination color is on the right side of the chassis, so the illumination cannot be changed while the EQ is recessed into a housing or your vehicle's dash cavity.

Outputs: This unit is equipped with front, rear and subwoofer RCA outputs. The subwoofer outputs are non-fading outputs.

High-Pass Crossover: when the unit is used in the "9 band + 2 band" mode and the subwoofer outputs are used, the rear RCA outputs will be high-pass filtered at 100Hz. When the unit is used in the "11 band" mode and the subwoofer outputs are used, the front and rear RCA outputs will be high-pass filtered at 100Hz.

Subwoofer Crossover:

  • Variable between 30 and 150Hz
  • Slope is 12 dB/octave

Sub-Level Control: Variable between -Infinity and +10 dB.

Parametric EQ: Has two frequency adjustment controls (30-800Hz and 800-16kHz) and two +/- 12dB level controls for them.

Set Up Options: Front and rear outputs can be adjusted with all 11 frequency controls ("11 band" mode) or the front controlled by the parametric controls and rear by the other 9 ("9 band + 2 band mode).

"On" Buttons: The parametric EQ and 9-band EQ sections have separate turn-on buttons.
