Our take on the Clarion BC2

by Buck Pomerantz
Clarion

The BC2 wired remote bass control allows you to change the level on a Clarion DPX amplifier without having to stop your car. You can flush-mount this remote bass knob or attach it under your dash with the integrated mounting bracket, so you can boost the amp's level with a twist of the knob. And with 20 feet of connecting cable, it'll reach your amp from almost any mounting location.

Highlights:

  • remote level control for Clarion DPX amplifiers (DPX11551, DPX1851, DPX2251, DPX11500, and DPX1800)
  • 20' cable and mounting hardware included
  • 1-5/8"W x 1"H x 2-3/8"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Does what it's supposed to. Level Control.

Written By Arthur, NJ on Tuesday, April 20, 2010
 
Clarion specifically says its a level control, and that's exactly what it is. This is not a boost control. Read any of the official clarion amp application guides and you will see its a level control. Clarion amps have a boost on the amp only, the cable does not effect the boost.

With that said, it does exactly what it's supposed to. Changes the output level. The potentiometer has a nice sturdy feel to it and is easy to use. Easy to install as well, cable is easily long enough for almost any install.

I've been using it for a few years. First with a DPX1800 and now with a DPX11551. I never use boost, so i wouldn't own this thing if that's what it did.

If you need a level control for your clarion amps, this is the device for you.

Not worth it

Written By Matt & Amanda, Marysville, OH on Friday, August 07, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They need to reword the device and say it is a "boost" not a "control." It
barely makes a difference. If the cops are in sight, you turn your volume down,
not this bass boost. I fabricated it into my 2000 Jeep Wrangler into one of the
blank switch slots. It looks good, but has very little effect.
