On the back of the 55S "should" be a switch to set for "L", "M", or "H" 
for impedance.

There are a couple of pages for it on BAMA.  Otherwise I can send them 
direct by E-MAIL.

These settings provide for a wide range of matching possibilities.

Todd and others can and I'm sure "will" provide the necessary info to 
change the audio around in your KW-1.

Best luck, and hope to hear you shortly on the air!
