Product Description

Features & Specifications



Kenwood eXcelon XR601-1 XR Reference Series Class D Mono Power Amplifier

Want big bass? Kenwood’s Excelon Reference Series XR601-1 mono amplifier can power your subwoofer with up to 600 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 XR601-1 can fit into many different places in your car because of its incredibly low profile — it’s less than 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 XR601-1 amplifier features a low-pass filter that selects 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.

High Performance Parts

The Special capacitors and inductors have been carefully selected for the digital amplifier’s LC filter, which is essential for achieving high resolution audio. These high-performance parts reduce noise and distortion and ensure excellent sound quality.

Specialized Circuit Design

The noise reduction system in the Kenwood eXcelon XR601-1 employs a special layout that separates the analog circuit, digital amplifier circuit and power supply circuit. This keeps interference between the circuits to a minimum, decreasing noise and thereby achieving high performance and sound quality.
