Wow

joshua from Elizabethtown, KY on 6/18/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These made adding an amp and keeping my factory radio easy. No need for a signal processor (but maybe my amp helped ) sounds awesome just like a aftermarket reciever with outpits built in. Just make sure u tape up the ends if u hooke them up directly behind your radio. I did and they were touching and i got all kids of noise until i taped them up

Pros: Great sound with factory radio

Cons: Metal tips can touch and cause noise through your speakers but easily fixed

Snug fitting

Sam from cumberland, MD on 1/31/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace the speaker level adapter RCA plugs that originally came with an amplifier I purchased. The originals were loose and wouldn't even stay connected. I bought these JL plugs to replace those and they worked great. Quality product and good price!

Pros: Nice and snug fit. High quality Nice price from Crutchfield

Cons: None

RCA Connectors

Mark from Philadelphia Pennsylvania on 11/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The item itself seemed to be good quality. And it was good it came with an extra set. I was connecting them to a cassette player/recorder. However, they didn't work. I'm not sure if it was the connection I made, the player I was using, or the RCA plugs.

Pros: Good quality.

Cons: Didn't work.

Crutchfield response on December 2, 2015 Thanks to this review, we updated the information on this item to reflect that this adapter is designed to work with select JL Audio amps and is NOT a line output converter, which actually converts the high-voltage speaker-level signal to a low-voltage line-level signal. If you need a line output converter, you'll find them here.

So easy to use. Save me from having to run new wire. I had run speaker wire to my subwoofer location. 5 minutes and a soldering iron and I had a new RCA for my subwoofer..

Simple product with great results

Michael from Fresh Meadows on 3/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product, it doesn't show in Crutchfield's description but, the terminals are labeled for the positive wire with little "+" symbols on the wire jacket. The wire is well insulated at the plug connectors. The plugs have red and white rings to help in associating the left and right channels.

Pros: Low profile plugs are great for plugging in right spaces like the back of the radio/receiver and mating them to RCA audio interconnects.

Cons: None so far.

Another quality product from JL. Very easy to connect. Small and compact. Very easy to hide on installs. So far, no complaints on sound quality.

Pros: Easy to connect. Great quality.

Cons: None so far.

Umm....nothing special.

spin from NOLA on 2/22/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sends a signal....that's about it.

Pros: Makes converting speaker to rca easy.

Cons: Not a very long cable, and mine only came with one female adapter instead of two. Too much of hassle to send it back.

Another fantastic JL product

JJ from Crowley, TX on 1/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a fantastic product, as I'm accustomed to from JL Audio. For my specific application I could have easily used a longer wire to splice into my factory speaker wiring, but regardless I'm very satisfied with buying these adapters.

Pros: Quality product

Cons: Wiring could be longer to minimize wire splicing.

Perfect

Another solid JL product

miguelito from Hawaii on 6/21/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

All in all this is a great product for those of us that need to get an older JL amp into a factory equipped audio system. I had to convert my factory speaker wires into a preamp level RCA for my older JL 250/1v2. The cables prove to be of durable materials and everything fit properly. I even like the added touch of the barrel adapters if your setup required them.

Pros: Long enough wires for my install and not too long where they get in the way.

Cons: The RCA connection wasn't as secure and tight as i would like but still holds onto the amp okay.

I got this to be able to use the High level inputs on my JL Slash 500/1v1 and they work flawless I used with some posi connectors and it allowed me to simplify my install and remove my line out converter.

Pros: Came with female to female adapter too

Cons: none

Real Good Product

Ryan from Niles, MI on 5/12/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have an Alpine mrp-m1000 amp and 2 10" 4ohm type R's. I wanted to keep it stock with my 6 disk cd changer. I tapped into my rear speakers with the JL output converter and let me say the bass is more than loud!!! Real easy just solder some speaker wire or the JL's if you have some rca cables to the rear speakers and that's it. Crutchfield said wouldn't be glass shattering but its pretty close. I would def recommend this easy cheap fix to anyone!!! just wish the wires were longer 2009 Toyota Corolla S 6 disk Cd changer with 6 speakers

Features

Overview: The JL Audio RCA-to-Speaker Wire Adapters (XD-CLRAIC2-SW) allow high level speaker outputs to be connected via RCA plugs. Ideal for use with amplifiers that have high-level input capability, but no speaker wire input connections. The molded RCA plugs are short and the speaker wire is 18AWG to allow for easy installation in tight areas.

Note: This is not a line output converter. It does not change a high voltage speaker level signal to a low voltage line level signal, and should not be used to connect a speaker level signal to an amp that only has line level inputs.
