Brains and Beauty
The KMC20's “black box” processor mounts on any flat surface and connects to the screen with the included 6-foot cable, so you can tuck it away behind the dash or in a cubby. If you need a longer run, you can use the optional 25-foot KMCEXT25 extension cable.
The IPX6 waterproof 3-1/2” LCD color display has day and night modes, so it's always easy to access this system's features. And this media center offers a ton of great features.
Plenty of ways to play
This versatile receiver will stream music from all your Bluetooth devices, complete with onscreen artist, track and title data. A pair of charging USB inputs let you plug in your phone or a thumb drive to enjoy your digital music collection.
Get the latest news and weather from the AM/FM/Weather Band radio. You can also connect a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner (subscription also required) to enjoy your favorite music, sports, news, and entertainment – great news when you're out of range of your local stations.
And, to coin a phrase, that's not all. Two sets of auxiliary stereo RCA inputs allow you to add other audio devices and choose a name for each. Large, backlit buttons and an easy-to-grab rotary volume control make it easy to operate, even in choppy water.
With a built-in amp that delivers up to 200 watts of peak power, the KMC20 can certainly rock your boat. Right out of the box, you can connect up to eight speakers to this 2-ohm stable system without needing an amp.
Need more power? You'll find a full set of RCA outputs, including a dedicated sub output with level control, so you can add plenty of Kicker amplifier power to your system.
The KMC20 also features dual zone control, so you and your crew can enjoy a variety of sources at different volume levels. You can change the volume on the wakeboard tower speakers, switch radio stations on the deck, or change the source from Bluetooth to satellite radio with just the touch of a button. It's the kind of control every captain craves.
If you need even more control, you can add Kicker's KRC15 digital commander remote, or the PXiRCX remote (sold separately).
Safe and smart
It's easy to forget where all that party power comes from – until you realize you've spent the afternoon draining your boat's battery. The KMC20 monitors the health of your battery, so you'll know you have a low charge before you have no charge at all.
And when you disconnect the Media Center from the battery, you won't lose all your custom settings. The black box has the brains to remember custom source names, favorites and even radio presets.
