Kenwood DAB Radio Smart Car


Kenwood's Smart Car came about because we wanted to demonstration our Digital Radio CD-Receiver. With a simple installation which includes our DNX4250DAB head-unit, a pair of front speakers, mono amplifier and two subs. The result is a simple but effective demonstration of the new opportunity for Digital Radio performance.

   Mono amplifier



1600W Maximum Output Power

As the smallest amplifier in its class, in the world, the KAC-X1D overcomes thermal radiation issues inherent to compact amplifiers and packed with powerful Kenwood technology into a small form that enables installation in tight locations previously restricted to lower performance amps. This is ideal for users who do not wish to sacrifice boot space or prefer stealth installation.

KFC-WPS1000F - 10" Dual Voice Coil Subwoofer

Compared to existing models, the flat subwoofer KFC-WPS1000F (10") are approximately 40% slimmer in depth. This makes them ideal for installation even in tight spaces such as behind or under seats. A carbon-fibre cone and aluminum-cast basket is employed for long-lasting reliability.
