About the Kenwood KGC-9044

Mount this great-looking Kenwood KGC-9044 EQ/crossover in a DIN-sized opening in your dash, and fine-tune your multi-amp system without leaving the driver's seat. Three pairs of preamp outputs (front, rear, and non-fading for your sub amp) give you maximum flexibility in designing your system. These gold-plated preamp output jacks pump out a 4-volt signal, for maximum dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and signal integrity, with minimal distortion.

Mount this great-looking Kenwood KGC-9044 EQ/crossover in a DIN-sized opening in your dash, and fine-tune your multi-amp system without leaving the driver's seat. Three pairs of preamp outputs (front, rear, and non-fading for your sub amp) give you maximum flexibility in designing your system. These gold-plated preamp output jacks pump out a 4-volt signal, for maximum dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and signal integrity, with minimal distortion.

Selectable high- and low-pass electronic crossovers (each with selectable full-range pass-through) let you send each amp the precise frequencies your speakers require. You get an 11-band equalizer with 12 dB boost or cut on each band, and your choice of 8 high-pass and 3 low-pass settings on the crossovers. Choose from 6 factory-preset EQ curves, or program in 3 EQ settings of your own creation. A multicolor 11-band spectrum analyzer gives a cool visual display of the sonic contours you've selected.

If you're planning on installing the KGC-9044 under your dash, we'll send you a free mounting kit. Just add item #120999000 to your order.

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

    Note: You can also enter three of your own settings into memory.

Equalizer Adjustment: The center frequencies are 60Hz, 120Hz, 250Hz, 380Hz, 500Hz, 750Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 4kHz, 8kHz and 16kHz. Each of these frequencies can be raised or lowered in 2dB steps by +/-12dB.

Menu Functions: The built in menu system which allows you to set the following:

  • Fader: You can fade between the front and rear outputs (the sub out is non-fading),
  • High Pass Filter: Independent settings for the Front and/or Rear RCA Outputs. Can be set to Off (pass through); 40Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz, 180Hz or 220Hz. (the slope is 12dB/Octave).
  • Low Pass Filter: For the subwoofer (non-fading) output. Can be set to Off (pass through), 50Hz, 80Hz, or 120Hz (the slope is 12dB/Octave).
  • Subwoofer Preout Level: You can adjust the output level of the non-fading preamp outputs between -80 to +10dB.
  • Analyzer Level: You can set the relative level of the spectrum analyzer display between 0-10.
  • LCD Contrast Level: You can increase or decrease the contrast of the menu display on a scale of 0-10. This does not effect the spectrum analyzer display, it simply adjusts the contrast of the menu portion of the display.
  • Rear/Front Output Boost: Changes the preamp output level of the front and rear RCA outputs to High (4V) or Low (1V) in case the amplifiers being used with the unit can not accept a 4V input.

Input Sensitivity Adjustment: You can adjust the input sensitivity of the unit (based on the source unit's output) from 1 to 4 volts using a small screw behind the faceplate.
