Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Some songs need extra bass and others don't. Wiring a bass knob to the front of your car lets you decide when you should go heavy or just peel it back a few notches. That way the bass isn't always overwhelming. [ Michael  Nov 07, 2019 ]

I'm looking for one of these to control an excelon xr1s will this one Work ? If not do you know of the correct model number for one that will?

Hi Darrin, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the KCA-RC01A is not a compatible with the Excelon XR1-S amplifiers. The remote that is compatible with that amp is the Kenwood KCA-WR10, which has been discontinued. You may be able to find this controller for sale on other sites online. Sorry we didn't have what you're needing for that amp, Darrin, but let us know if we can help with anything else. You can chat with us online, or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, any of our Advisors will be happy to help.

Would this work on a Kenwood Excelon XR600-1 amplifier?
[ Melanie  Sep 08, 2019 ]
1 answer
It will not, all controls and settings are done via the app from a phone or tablet or from the headunit itself ( if capable)
