Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player
Hello. I am getting a new Kenwood head installed and have a question about amps. The unit has a 50W X 4 internal amp. I have an amp for my sub and one for my mids and highs installed already (not sure of the wattage but the power is there no doubt).
The unit has the option of turning off the internal amp. Is there any advantages or disadvantages to keeping it on or just turning it off and using the others?
One installer says to keep it on and I will keep a bit more power, the other says just leave it off and let the other amps do their job. I would appreciate any advice here.
The model of the unit is KVT-512 which is new and not listed. I just put this down since it must be a similar unit.
Thanks in advance,
Some models the internal amp is for the actual speaker wiring and not the rca jacks like you use to feed the amp for subwoofers.
you need to check and see how much power your amp can handle coming in. I would say cut it off and use your other amps
