Kenwood eXcelon XR-1701P 6.5″ Component Speaker System

Kenwood’s eXcelon badge is their standard for quality performance and excellent sound, and the Kenwood eXcelon XR-1701P component speaker system delivers the goods. Specially crafted for playing high-resolution audio files, these speakers use premium materials and design to enhance the audio signal from a high-performance amplifier and receiver. What that means for you is a life-like listening experience, without any distortion.

Premium components

The 6-1/2″ glass-fiber woofer cone delivers full, hearty sound, and its specially designed surround ensures endurance, play after play. The 1-3/16″ hard dome titanium tweeter brings striking detail to your music, upholding the artist’s intention from song to song. If you love high-res music, these tweeters reproduce frequencies up to 40,000 Hz, delivering the extended detail and strong imaging of your high-res FLAC or DSD files.

Kenwood also includes versatile mounting gear for a variety of installation of challenges.

Bring on the power

These exceptional speakers will handle up to 100 watts RMS, so you’ll maximize their performance when you power them with a nice amp. And the included external crossovers let you amplify the woofers and tweeters separately for an even stronger sound.

Rich and Immersive High-Resolutions Audio

High-Resolution Audio is high-quality sound that exceeds CD standard. High-resolution audio captures and beautifully expresses all the details of your favorite music. Through ultra-high and low frequencies, immerse yourself in a rich and high-quality sonic experience.

Smooth waveforms   –   Loss of smoothness   –   Fine waveforms

Glass Fibre Cone

The glass fiber cone combines high-strength with lightweight materials, allowing the speaker to reproduce all sounds from impactful bass notes to delicate tones.

Woofer Cap with Circle Rib

The circle rib provides enhanced woofer stability, ensuring bass is deep and clear.

Surround Roll Shape

Asymmetrical thickness of the surround roll shape provides better focussed bass.

1-3/16” Large Tweeter Designed for High Resolution

1-3/16” (30mm) tweeters have a larger surface area than most tweeters which allows clear reproduction of vocal sound up through ultra high frequency range. Both flush and surface mounting options are included.
With its compound curvature diaphragm, a large 1-3/16” (30mm) titanium hard dome provides the ultimate in high frequency performance.

New Bi-Amp Connection

The XR-1701P’s include bi-ampable crossover network box, allowing you to power the tweeter and woofer individually from the XR401-4 or other combinations of individual amplifier channels. The network box is further optimized with a high-reliability polyswitch and resistor to protect the tweeter from being overdriven.

Connecting using the Bi-Amp system Regular Connection
