The KCA-BT200 has a single 5L changer bus connection as well as a
KAB adaptor cable for the new KAB bus line. This is for our 2008 multime-
dia products. It connects to compatible receivers using our single-wire 5L
bus connection, and even includes a "pass-through" for additional devices
like satellite radio or a KCA-iP500 iPod interface. It also has a KAB pass
through for other KAB devices. The KCA-BT200 Bluetooth unit is compat-
ible with all eXcelon models and Kenwood models, with the exception of
the KDC-138 and KDC-MP208. Note: The input signal has to be the same
as the pass-through. KAB in /KAB out or 5 line in/ 5 Line out.
Our KCA-BT200 includes chipsets by Parrot, creators
of some of the most clever wireless chip technologies on
the market. Benefits include updatable firmware for future
phone compatibility, voice tagging, music streaming, text messaging and
control over Bluetooth AVRCP and A2DP. Parrot chipsets embed a power-
ful DSP with a hardware accelerator, have low power consumption, and
offer wide compatibility. They also provide extremely robust voice recogni-
tion capabilities in noisy environments. With voice tagging, you can select
a name from your address book and hit record and say the name. It tags
the address with the name and allows you to dial that person by saying
their name.
Calling All Motor Mouths!
Kenwood's KCA-BT200 hands-free cell phone unit is the perfect
solution for chatty drivers, not only because it has so many cool
features and A2DP music streaming, but because 2008 ushers
in new laws banning the use of hand-held cell phones while driv-
ing. Five states (California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York
and Washington), and the District of Columbia have enacted
jurisdiction-wide cell phone laws prohibiting driving while talking
on hand-held cell phones. Our KCA-BT200 lets you make and
receive calls right from a compatible Kenwood receiver, call via
direct dialing, phone book, or history and hear conversations
through your vehicle's front speakers.
Come to the Display Board
Kenwood CD players' performance and features speak for themselves,
but we've given them (and you) a little extra help with a cool demo mode.
Units with the bright 64-color fluorescent display scroll through features
and even demo graphics across the screen. It'll definitely get your cus-
tomers' attention!
High-Pass/Low-Pass Crossovers
All 2008 Kenwood receivers have low-pass filters that allow only low fre-
quencies to go to a subwoofer amplifier. Step up models have high-pass
filters that keep low frequencies from reaching the full range speakers. This
Let's Talk Parrot
lets you listen to tunes louder with less distortion and reduces the chance
of damage. Also, any Kenwood receiver with built-in electronic crossovers
have either a dedicated or switchable non-fading (subwoofer) pre-out with
a ±15 dB level control. These features make it easy for your customer to
add a subwoofer to the system, giving them control over the sub's volume
and the ability to improve the system's sound by experimenting with low-
pass crossover settings, all without having to leave the driver's seat.
System E's
System E's has five high-pass crossover points for both front and rear
independently at 80,100,120,150, and 180 Hz. System E's also has a
low-pass filter at 60, 80, and 120 Hz. On the units that have only front
and rear pre-outs, the rear pre-out can be switched to a non-fading sub
out with selectable low-pass filter for this output.
System E's+
For the ultimate crossover experience, check out the System E's+. It works
the same as System E's but offers more crossover points – eight high-
pass and three low-pass. Independent Front and Rear High Pass filters
selectable at 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, 220Hz or through at 12dB
per Octave. Low pass filter 50, 60, 80, 100, 120 Hz or through at 12 dB
per Octave.
Digital System E's +
Found on the KDC-X991, this is the same as System E's+ with 12 high-
pass and 13 subwoofer crossover points and selectable slopes at 12,
18, and 24 dB per octave. In-
dependent front, rear high pass
filters and subwoofer low pass
filter selectable at 30, 40, 50,
60, 70,80, 90, 100, 120, 150,
180, 220, 250 Hz or through at
12/18 or 24 dB per octave.
System Q and System QEX
You'll find powerful sound controls on all Kenwood head units. Even our
entry level product has System Q which allows for Bass, midrange and
treble adjustments. eXcelon product features System QEX which adds
adjustment of the centering frequency, Q, and even the low-end exten-
sion in the bass frequencies. With this much adjustment capability, the
sound can be perfectly tailored to the listener's taste.
Dual Zone Source & Volume Control
Customers with kids will love the Dual Zone Source and Volume Con-
trol feature found on all eXcelon in-dash receivers, KDC-MP438U and
up in the Kenwood line, and our
DPX502 double din. With Dual
Zone Source and Volume Con-
trol, the kids in the back can
zone out on cartoons while the
grown ups listen to tunes.
