Product details

Kenwood DAB A1 In Car Digital Radio Glass Mount Antenna

• Designed for Kenwood receivers only
• Active antenna
• Band two reception
• Low noise integrated amplifier
• Earth bond contact for superior reception

Kenwood's DAB-A1 DAB aerial can be used with the KDC-DAB4551U DAB/CD Receiver. It can also be used with other Kenwood DAB radios in the range. This is a discrete window film aerial avoiding the need to drill a hole in the vehicles body as previously required with less sensitive receivers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this to go with the Kenwood DAB on sale here. Some DAB guru sites give this a weak rating for signal, but I found mine works fine and lost no signal between Mid Cornwall and Exeter which is quite rural with poor coverage. Bit of a fiddle to install if you are doing DIY as you need to get behind the dash to hide the wires and open the A pillar cover to fit the earth contact. Use a hairdryer to warm and dry the windscreen for best results. Check 3 times and stick once as you won't get a second chance. The instructions are clear but when it refers to the 2 triangles to line up the booster you will only see them from the outside of the glass looking in. Remember to set the DAB radio settings to antenna 'power on' or it won't work as it is a powered antenna and not passive. I gave it 4, as one foul up in installation will render it useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got this with the DAB headunit from Kenwood. The Headunit was easy to install but this was a little trickier but I soon got it installed. It is very neat and is hard to see yet seems to pick up all the stations well. Well worth the effort

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works On first use does everything I need, obviously only time will tell with varied journeys whether product is fit for purpose or not. Shame about service WRT delivery to collect in store. Not good experience !
