Some factory radios put out a voltage level that's too low to turn on JL Audio's CleanSweep sound processor. This JL Audio CL-LSA adapter remedies that problem by sensing when the factory radio is turned on, and then triggering the Clean Sweep.

Product Highlights:

  • automatic voltage-sensing trigger for use with the CleanSweep
  • allows the CleanSweep to work with low-voltage factory radios
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2014 F150 with the Sony Premium sound. I connected an LC8I as my LOC. I was having issues with the front right signal from the stock amp causing major heat to an aftermarket tweeter. I read and found that if the stock amp signals don't see a load they will shut off. In my case it was causing a very bad signal to be sent to the LC8I.

Through research I found this item that will show a load to whatever it is connected to. I connected it in-between my stock amp and the LC8I and I corrected the signal problem I was having. The JL cleansweep CL SSI will do the same but I had an LC8I already and this part was less than $15 instead of $109.

Pros: Worked for my specific issue.

Cons: Wires are a tad small.

Product Research


Overview: The JL Audio CL-LSA Load-Sensing Adapter is designed to present an appropriate impedance load to OEM headunit or amplifier outputs that employ "load-sensing startup protection" when used with JL Audio's CL441dsp CleanSweep OEM Audio Interface. When an OEM amplifier or headunit employs this type of protection, it checks the impedance of the connected load when the unit is powered up (expecting a speaker) and mutes its amplifier outputs if a load outside of a predicted range is detected. The CL441dsp's input impedance is outside of the range expected by some of these types of systems and can cause the OEM headunit or amplifier to mute. When the CL-LSA is inserted inline with the CleanSweep OEM Audio Interface's inputs, it presents a safe and appropriate load to your OEM component and corrects the muting behavior.
