The Kenwood USA Corp has several different products out on show including a new line of amplifiers. The Kenwood KAC-9104D is a monaural amp and has 500W (900w at 1&2 ohms) of continuous output. It has a built-in Boost of up to 18dB at 40Hz, a variable low-pass filter and a variable infrasonic filter to help with reduced distortion at ultra low frequencies. It can be combined with a second one in dual mono configuration for a subwoofer of up 1,800watts of power. It’s 30% smaller than its predecessor and when it’s released next month it’ll go for around $300.
The KAC 8104 has a lot of same features of the 9104D but it features 300watts of power output at 4ohms and 500watts at 2ohms. It’s 33% smaller than the model it replaces and will sell for $200 when it’s released, also next month.
There are three other amplifiers in this line: KAC-8404, KAC-7204 and the KAC-6404. They have (50w x4 at 4ohms, 75w x4 at 2ohms and 180w x2 at 4ohms) (170w x2 at 7ohms, 250w x2 at 2ohms and 500w x1 at 4ohms) repectively. They will all go on sell in Feb. for $200-$230.
