Hey wassup everyone. I just got new kicker KS65.2 components in my car last week and i'm looking for a new amp to buy. I was looking at kenwood's KAC-8452. The thing is, I don't know if kenwood makes good amps. I know they make decent head units, but not too sure about their amps and the sound quality on them. If you guys could help me pick out a decent 4 channel amp that would be great. Looking for about 75/200 watts per channel. thanks. oh yeah, my budget's 300 bucks, i found that kenwood amp for 200 so yeah.
glass are you sure becasue i owned a kenwood amp pushing my 6x9's for almost 2 years and nothing ever went wrong with it-- sure it was overrated but it never broke at all- im not sure how their mono amps are but from what i hear around they are not "crap" they may not be great or average but in my opinion for budget systems they do a better job than cheap hifonics amps
high failure rate doesn't mean ALL of them fail. you got lucky. lots of people get lucky with sony amps too but that doesn't make them any better overall. kenwoods are known for going into protect mode with low (but within spec) loads, and burning up during normal use. I got so tired of seeing kenwood product sshowing up in our shop dead or for repair that I decided I'd never buy another kenwood product again. pretty much like sony.
