    Re: 2v rca output vs 4v rca output

    Deciding between a jvc (2v) and a kenwood (4v) right now, not the best deck but affordable, was just wondering if there was a huge difference in the voltages being different

    Either receiver would be fine, made by the same company, pick the one that has more sq features, d/a converter, EQ or internal, HD, BT crossovers, or whatever suits your preference. if the kenwood has the 4 volts go with it, exelon models are high end units.
