Kenwood Excelon XR1001-1 Reference Series mono subwoofer amplifier
Super-slim profile, big-time power
Want to join the kilowatt club? Kenwood's Excelon Reference Series XR1001-1 mono amplifier can power your subwoofer with up to 1,000 watts RMS. (That's a real world rating, not that inflated number you find printed on some amps.) An advanced circuit design and upgraded components virtually eliminate noise and maximize sound quality. Even better, the XR1001-1 can fit into many different places in your car because of its incredibly low profile — it's only 2" tall.
Designed for optimum efficiency
Kenwood packed this amp with space-saving features. Class D technology reduces the size of the power supply, while the internal heatsink is tilted to reduce height without compromising the amp's cooling system. Recessed power and speaker wire terminals help to further reduce the amp's footprint, protect the connections, and give your installation a neat, professional look.
Controls for the best bass
This no-nonsense amplifier features low-pass and subsonic filters that select the correct frequencies for your sub so it'll play efficiently and sound its best. The amp also includes an adjustable bass boost that'll add some low-end punch when you want it. A wired remote lets you control the volume of your bass from the front seat.
