Kenwood KAC-M1814 Class D 4-Channel Digital Amplifier

Kenwood KAC-M1814 Class D 4-Channel Digital Amplifier super-compact KAC-M1814 will add new clarity and impact to the basic sound system of almost any kind of vehicle on land or water, and it'll fit in a lot of places when space is tight. This marine-rated 4-channel amp will pump up your audio system with 45 watts RMS per channel — that's more than twice the power of most car stereos or marine receivers. The amp uses plastic covers to protect its connections and features a conformal-coated circuit board that keeps out moisture and salt, so the party won't stop just because of a little wetness.

Works in almost any system

The Kenwood KACM1814 will accept a signal from just about any source, whether you're using RCA cables from an aftermarket receiver or speaker wires from a factory radio. When you use the speaker-level inputs, the amplifier will sense the signal and turn itself on, so you won't need to run a separate remote turn-on lead to the receiver or fuse box. Kenwood goes to great lengths to ensure good sound quality, putting the preamp and output power amp stages on separate circuit boards for better, cleaner performance.

signal-sensing turn-on on speaker-level inputs eliminate need for a separate remote lead

  • Good things do come in small packages
    Verified BuyerReviewed by KingKongEk9 - June 30, 2021

    Very very happy with my purchase, easy to use, very compact, sounds great for its size.. I wanted something nice and simple that worked but was not looking to break the bank and was limited on space, this little amp was more than perfect for me, only downside is that it gets really hot and that was just during testing, I mounted it in an easy access place and it’s not enclosed.

    Verified BuyerReviewed by Mspardone - February 27, 2021

    Bought this item on Best buys open box rack and thought I was getting a good deal come to find out the same day I looked and it was $20 cheaper online even $20 cheaper at retail stores the product was obviously returned because mounting hardware was missing and one of the knobs for volume was broken. I Ended up having to go to Nashville on business and by the time I returned I just didn't want to deal with it

  • Very clean sound
    Verified BuyerReviewed by TrevenBacon - February 26, 2022

    Easy install, small footprint and clip-free operation so far. Does exactly what it's supposed to, imo. I matched it with 4 kicker dsc680's and it jams pretty good in my f350 cc.

  • The only pick if you want your music to kick!!!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Strappedupshawty45 - June 27, 2020

    Oh man wowwww, where do I begin. If I could give this product 10 stars I would. I had purchased this amp and had it placed on 4 6 and a quarter inch Kickers in my Chevrolet Tahoe. The sound is absolutely amazing. It's basically like you're at a concert in your car. The sound is crisp and clean. You can here every snare and chime in each song. It makes your system so clear that I can now here background add libs I have never heard in songs tdd that I have known verbatim for 20 years!! Hands down this is the best amplifier you can get to make your highs really high

  • Nice little amp for the price but gets hot!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by CheapGuy - July 4, 2021

    So far so good with this amp. It has a nice small footprint so it fit nicely in the cabin of my boat so it can’t get wet. Has nice output for the mid level Kenwood marine speakers I’ve paired it with and the set up was ok given the price. The main issue is this amp puts out a lot of heat given the low output so be careful where you mount it and it also doesn’t have the newer bells and whistles a lot of higher price amp have to set things like gain, but that’s obviously to be expected. Overall a good deal.
