Can You Hear Us Now? KENWOOD Has You Covered with 5 New Pre-Loaded Subwoofer Enclosures - Now Shipping!

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA, August 3, 2020, KENWOOD USA announced it is shipping 5 new pre-loaded subwoofer enclosures, focusing on precisely matched power handling to its amplifiers, enhanced durability, sound quality and performance, along with enhanced cosmetic designs.

The P-XW1221DHP ($449.95 MAP) houses two 12” KENWOOD eXcelon High-power class subwoofers, touting a 1000W total RMS power handling at a 2-ohm final impedance, making it precisely power matched to the KENWOOD eXcelon XR1001-1 amplifier. The P-XW1221SHP ($249.95) is the single 12” KENWOOD eXcelon High-power class option, with a respective 500W RMS power handling at a 2-ohm impedance, making it the perfect companion to the KENWOOD eXcelon X502-1 amplifier.

The P-XW1221D ($349.95 MAP) provides a value-based option for those looking for a dual 12” subwoofer configuration. It includes 2 KENWOOD eXcelon subwoofers, which can be precisely powered by the KENWOOD eXcelon XR601-1 amplifier for 600W RMS at 2 ohms. The P-XW1241S ($199.95 MAP) also offers an exceptional value, including a single 12” KENWOOD eXcelon subwoofer with a 4-ohm impedance, for an exact match-up to the KENWOOD eXcelon X502-1, which provides 300W RMS at 4 ohms.

All 4 of these enclosures feature the CA-121G steel mesh grille(s) for added protection and further enhanced cosmetics, which are a $30 value each when sold separately. All 4 enclosures are extremely versatile, being able to be mounted in a down-firing configuration with their extra THICK legs, or forward/rear facing with their slant-back design. They boast a 3/4" THICK MDF baffle, which provides more strength and durability, ensuring accurate bass even at high volume.

“Why experiment with off-the-shelf boxes not designed for a specific subwoofer?” said Mike Roberts, KENWOOD VP of Sales and Marketing. “Our engineers designed these enclosures to perform reliably and sound their best with our subwoofers. This not only simplifies the sales and installation process, but it also gives the customer peace of mind in knowing that they are getting the best result.”

Joe Roberts from Roberts Auto Sound in Louisville, KY recently had the opportunity to get a “sneak-peak” and sound demo of these new pre-loaded enclosures. “After a good demo here at my store, I can say that these new KENWOOD eXcelon sub enclosures are some of the best F@#$%^G subwoofer enclosures we have ever heard!” said Roberts. Nathan Dunn from Cartronics in Nashville, TN also had an opportunity to listen to them, and shared that “the new KENWOOD P-XW1221SHP loaded enclosure is a very well designed, well constructed, versatile box that can be used in a down-firing configuration, or simply tuck it away in the trunk up against the back of a seat. This is a good-looking box that hits hard and is a great value for the money.”

To further add to its list of pre-loaded enclosures, the P-XW1002B ($249.95 MAP) is also making its debut this month, sporting a new design along with the continued solid performance of the KFC-XW1000F 10” shallow subwoofer. Its low profile (6” height) sealed down-firing design fits easily where space is at a premium, but still packs a punch with 250W RMS power handling.
