Works for bass too

You can also use this versatile amp to power a subwoofer with up to 170 watts RMS in mono mode, with a built-in low-pass filter that allows you to send only bass below 80 Hz to your sub. You'll also find speaker-level inputs with signal sensing turn-on, so you can put this amp to work in just about any kind of system. The cast-aluminum heat sink gets rid of heat efficiently when you're cranking the volume.

Awesome little amp

Crutchfield customer from Peoria, AZ on 4/11/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Small yet powerful amp. I wasn't looking for something too powerful. Just enough to power one 10 inch sub. Works wonders. Doesn't get too hot.

Pros: Size No overheating

Cons: No remote for amp

5.25 woofers

Crutchfield customer from Roseville, CA on 3/25/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice quality sound for the price. Driving two CDT 5.25 Woofers. Either the amp is slightly under powered or the woofers are inefficient. I'll try it with different woofers soon to check. The amp itself is light and small, great for a sports car.

Pros: Size

Cons: Power

Installed the Kenwood on a custom A/V system in my van. Nice clean sound. Customer support was great when I had questions about being stable @ a 2ohm load. Been dealing with Crutchfield since the 70s!

Pros: Kenwood quality, compact size, quality hardware.

Cons: none

Features

CTA-2006 Compliant: CTA-2006 is a system of testing and measurement for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard advocates a uniform method for measuring an amplifier's RMS power output and signal-to-noise ratio. CTA-2006 standards allow consumers to compare car amplifiers and receivers under the same conditions (apples to apples). Using CTA-2006 criteria, the Kenwood KAC-5207 is rated at 70 watts RMS x 2 channels with an 80 dBA signal to noise ratio. The signal to noise ratio at the rated power output (not CTA-2006 conditions) is 100 dB.

2-Ohm Stable: The amplifier can support a 2-ohm load in stereo; the 2-ohm power output is 85 watts RMS x 2 channels.

Bridgeable: This two-channel amplifier can be bridged to a 4-ohm mono load; the bridged output is 170 watts x 1 channel RMS.

Cast Aluminum Heat Sink: The KAC-5207 utilizes a cast aluminum heat sink design to ensure the amplifier stays cool.

Protection circuitry: The amplifier features protection circuits that will turn the amp off in case of the following events:

  • speaker wire short-circuits
  • speaker output contacts ground
  • unit malfunctions and DC is sent to speaker output
  • the amp overheats

Power Indicator: When the amplifier is turned on the Power indicator (on top of the amp) lights up. This indicator turns off with the amplifier, and will turn off if the amplifier goes into protect mode.

Auto Turn-on: When using a speaker level input, the amp will turn on automatically when it senses the input signal.

Controls

Gain: To accommodate the varying range of signal levels from today's factory and aftermarket radios, the KAC-5207 features an adjustable gain control; 0.2-5.0 volts line level (RCA) and 4.0-12.0 volts speaker level.

Low Pass Crossover: The amplifier has a fixed 80Hz low-pass filter with a slope of 18dB per octave. The filter can be turned On or Off as needed.

Connections

Power Connections: The power, ground, and remote turn-on connections are 0.425" wide screw terminals. A Phillips-head or flat blade screw driver (not supplied) is required to tighten/loosen the terminals. Spade connectors are recommended. Minimum 10 gauge wire is required for power and ground. A 25-amp fuse should be placed on the power wire within 18" of the battery terminal.

Speaker Outputs: The two pair of speaker outputs are 0.315" wide screw terminals. A Phillips-head or flat blade screw driver (not supplied) is required to tighten/loosen the terminals. Spade connectors are also recommended for the speaker wires.

Note: The speaker output terminals can be used in stereo or bridged mode.

Line Level Input: The line input is a pair of stereo RCA jacks.

Speaker Level Input: A 9" wiring harness is included for the speaker level input.

Fuse: The amplifier uses a 25-amp ATO blade-type fuse.

Q
Does this amp have a remote turn on connection I can wire to an external switch?
[ Vance  Apr 24, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
If your radio doesn't have 12v power out when you turn it on, you can use a external switch to supply the amp with power.
[ robert  May 03, 2018 ]
Q
can I add a sub woofer to this amp?
[ Jeffrey  Apr 17, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
This amp can be bridged to one channel and it outputs 170 watts RMS and is 4 ohm stable. There are subwoofers that are 4 ohms and can work with this power. Feel free to call an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for a personal recommendation on a matching subwoofer. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
