Our take on the AudioControl DDC

by Gabrielle Thorndyke

The DDC dash-mount controller puts the power of your AudioControl digital processor at your fingertips. Mount this versatile controller in a convenient location on your dash or console, and you'll have easy access to the AudioControl processor in your trunk or cargo area. You can access all functions of your processor, so you can make your final EQ settings from the driver's seat.

The DDC controller works with AudioControl's DQS, DQX, DQT, DQXS, and DQL-8 processors. You can select green, red, or blue illumination to match your vehicle's interior lighting. The package includes a 20-foot cable and a handy remote control.
