The Kenwood KAC-M1824BT amplifier is unique in its class. A small and compact size with dimensions of less than 6″ wide by 1 & 3/4″ thick and under 4 inches deep, it’s designed for marine or outdoor use and has a marine grade protective coating on the amplifier’s electrical circuit boards called conformal coating to protect against moisture and salt water. An extremely water resistant wired remote control (IPX5 rated – able to resist jet streams of water) with it’s 10 foot of cable enables control of the amplifier with or without a car or marine radio. The wired remote can select the source (either Bluetooth input from any Bluetooth source like your phone or a hard wired signal level/speaker level input from a car or marine receiver), control volume up and down, and play, pause, fast forward or fast reverse a Bluetooth music source.
The amplifier can be configured in either two channel or four channel mode. Great for marine, ATV, motorcycle or car installations. If used with the typical car or marine in dash CD reciever, the KAC-M1824BT Bluetooth amp will double the output power available for louder sound. And notice that this amp has the upgraded aptX Bluetooth technology built in. This gives you better quality Bluetooth music transfer to your speakers for a crisper clearer sound. You do have to download the aptX app to your phone (it’s FREE) to get the aptX Bluetooth benefits.
