Sound Tuning Technology

Digital Time Alignment 13-Band EQ Drive EQ illustration
- Digital Time Alignment. - 13-Band Graphic Equalizer. - Drive EQ.

Digital Time Alignment: Allows you to digitally delay the closest speakers so that the sound of every speaker reaches your ears at the same time. It makes the sound move to the front top of dashboard in order to get the best stereo imaging & soundstage.

13-Band Graphic Equaliser: In Preset Mode, you can select one of the equaliser preset curves. Choose the User Mode to fine tune front and rear channels individually according to your preferences and compensate for tonal differences between the front and rear speakers arising from installation positions and size. The result is a natural audio reproduction environment and enhanced listening enjoyment for you.

Drive Equalizer: Road noise is the enemy of all audio systems found in vehicles. The inherent frequencies of road noise masks a wide range of the audio signal found in music, and this is the reason Kenwood engineers developed Drive EQ. Drive EQ boosts specific frequencies in the audio signal to compensate the negative impact of road noise.
