    60amps should be plenty for 900 watts of class D power

    Every Kenwood amp I have ever owned, when benched, met or exceeded rated wattage output - including the 4ch I am running currently.

    Please, in the future, refrain from making offhand commentary about things you apparently know little to nothing about.

    If they're CEA compliant, then they have to do their rated power

    That same amp, refurbished, is $129.99 + $24.99 S/H from Millionbuy.com.

    Well, their rated power at 4 Ohms, anyway...


    CEA output ratings compliance does not include any ratings given at resistances lower than that.

    I think it would likely do most (if not all) of the rated 900w when shown a 2 Ohm resistance, to tell the truth.

    I have owned/ran several different Kenwood eXcelon monoblocks, specifically model # KAC-X401M (and its overseas cousin, the KAC-PS401M).

    That amp is rated for 600w @ 2 Ohm when fed on 14.4vdc.

    In my experience actual output ran anywhere from 650 to 750w @ that load.

    Your experience with that 9103D should be similar. (do NOT present it with a 1 Ohm load, however....the results won't be pleasant )
