Kenwood X801-5 5-Channel X-Series, Class D, Car Audio Amplifier

Overview

X Series Amplifiers

X Series Amplifiers provide a powerful solution in a compact design ideal for upgrading your car audio system. The reliability of the thermal management system instantaneously controls amplitude and ensures uninterrupted sound reproduction when high output drives up temperatures. Experience the luxury of choice afforded by Kenwood's compact engineering.

Audio Grade Capacitors

These advanced audio grade capacitors store energy for the internal operating voltage of the amplifier. Their high quality construction and low internal resistance allow them to deliver energy during with the most demanding music and deliver unfluctuating performance when pushed close to their limits.

Dual Sigma Drive

This advanced negative feed back circuit improves damping factor and increases accuracy and sound quality. When a signal is passed to a subwoofer, like a 50Hz note, the speaker will move and create the note. However, because the speaker has mass and a suspension, it won't stop moving once it's in motion. This extra movement (sound) creates a type of distortion that's not part of the original signal. The negative feedback circuit senses this unwanted movement and sends out an opposite pulse to stop the speaker like an electronic brake.

Expanded Frequency Response

Supporting Hi-Res Audio, X801-5 is ideal for high resolution audio playback as it features a frequency response that extends to 50kHz.
