When it comes to great amplifiers that fit in small spaces, Ocala Car Audio is fond of the Kenwood KAC-M3004. This four-channel amplifier is rated to produce 50 watts of power per channel when connected to a four-ohm load. It features a compact 6-1/2 by 3-7/8-inch footprint that makes it ideal for motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides, marine and automotive applications. Let’s take a close look at the features of this great little amplifier.
Kenwood KAC-M3004 Specifications
As we mentioned, the KAC-M3004 is a 50 watt per channel amp. The amp produces 75 watts per channel when loaded to two ohms and can be configured as a two-channel amp that produces 150 watts per channel into a four-ohm load. The M3004 uses efficient Class D circuitry to maximize the power from the vehicle electrical system and extend playtime with the engine off.
Amplifier Layout and Controls
The KAC-M3004 has a terminal block on the right end-panel for power and ground connections. It features a Molex connector with the four pairs of speaker wires. Two sets of nickel-plated RCA input jacks are located on the opposite end of the amp. To the right of the jacks are input sensitivity controls that allow us to match this amplifier with source units that produce anywhere from 0.2 to 5 volts of output on the preamp. To the left of the jacks are two potentiometers that adjust the built-in high- and low-pass electronic crossovers.
Compact Amplifier Applications
One of our most popular application for the Kenwood KAC-M3004 is in the fairing of a motorcycle. When bridged to a pair of high-quality speakers, the 150 watts of power are a perfect solution to ensure your music is produced with clarity, even at high volume levels. Kenwood has constructed this amp for marine and outdoor applications. This includes a corrosion-resistant coating on the circuit board and protective covers for the controls to help keep dust out.
