View Full Version : SOLD/CLOSED WTT Kenwood Amp for 10" Sub

08-22-2011, 09:48 AM
Looking to trade a Kenwood Kac-8401 for a 10" Sub (preferably nothing generic, Kicker, Fosgate,, ect) This amp was very rarely used, It's my back-up amp. I will pay shipping the amp to you, and you will pay to ship the sub to me. Just something straight up, no cash exchanges please. I need a DVC, any power above 600 watts.

waiting on moderator to approve my last post

Crap, I am sorry guys, I have tried twice to get pics and links up and it keeps telling me I have to get a moderator to approve it first. I don't know what to do. I know it's been over a couple hours, but I hope the moderators will approve it VERY VERY soon!!!

I still can't get a mod to help me. I messaged a couple of them and still no response. I was able to get these two pics in before I got denied. i am just hoping to get some help. I am new to this, so it could still very well be my fault.

Its not your fault, you aren't doing anything wrong. The forum has anti-spam software that wont allow someone to post pics until they have a certain number of posts (10 iirc). But that software appears to be buggy, as we receive messages from new members sometimes saying they are being denied the ability to post pics, even though their post count is above 10 (but still fairly low, like yours).

There is no moderator post approval system here. We have no way to approve or deny posts, as that error message implies we do. I apologize for the inconvenience, my best/only advice is to keep trying to post until they go through. Usually a new member with this issue just has to hit a certain post count, and they are fine. But it appears to be a hit or miss in your situation.

Again I apologize for the issue. We are eagerly waiting on a software update to hopefully fix this problem.

Thank you sir!! here I go again. I wasn't able to get pics of the other side of the board without havin to start bending metal tabs and stuff, so the above pics are about all I could get. It's got pretty low THD and 60 watts x 4 RMS at 4 ohms. Here is the link to the amp specs.

The KAC-8401 is a multi-channel power amplifier that's powerful enough and versatile enough to run almost any speaker configuration. Power output is 60 watts x 4, 180 watts x 2 (bridged), with a maximum outpu rating of 640 watts. The power MOSFET switching power supply uses two large secondary capacitors and a large toroidial noise filter. Features include selectable +6dB bass boost (90Hz), variable low-pass and high-pass electronic crossovers for the A and B channels, 2-ohm stability, speaker level inputs, a Quiet Turn-On circuit, and a cast aluminum heat sink with sandblast finish.

i want to keep at least one of the amps for a backup, i don't care which one, I like both of them and they have about the same power ratings and everything. The older one needs a couple screws on the wire hookups, but nothing more than a couple pennies for those.

Let me know what Ya'll have!!! Thanks

I would love to have this amp, but the only 10" sub I have is 300W RMS...JL Audio 10W1V2

09-20-2011, 12:16 PM
In all honesty, that would be okay. I am trading so I can have something in a new box i built(It's built for the new SSA Icon 10") but I know I want have the money for that sub for a long time (it's kinda expensive). As long as you can guarantee me that it works 100 percent, it will be just fine.

This is the new box. (I still need a lot of work on my box building)


I am not sure which one you would like( the newer Kenwood or the old school one) I just need to keep one as a back-up. other than that whichever one you want is up to you!

09-20-2011, 01:07 PM
I just looked back at the original post...my sub is only a SVC.

09-20-2011, 01:37 PM
PPI PCX 104? Looks to be just what you're looking for.


09-20-2011, 01:38 PM
As long as it's 300 at 4 ohm, that would be perfect. My amp will put out about 800 at 4 ohm, but it's over rated by a couple hundred watts. So I would have no problem there.
