Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Overview: The AudioControl LC2i is an active, high-voltage OEM line
converter. This compact, two-channel processor with active input circuitry,
accepts speaker-level signals of up to 400-watts per channel from factory-installed source units or
amplifiers. It then converts the speaker-level signals to high-quality pre-amp
signals that can then be directed to after market processors and/or amplifiers.
You no longer have to compromise when performing basic
amplifier additions to factory installed audio systems. You can enjoy maximum
sound quality while maintaining the use of your factory volume and steering
Compact Chassis Design: The AudioControl LC2i active, high-voltage OEM
line converter features a compact chassis for an unobtrusive installation.
Two Channel Speaker-Level Input: The AudioControl LC2i features two
channels of active speaker-level inputs that accept up to 400-watt signals. The
two-channel line-output converter features four removable flat-head set-screw
terminals for quick connection.
9.5V Preamp Outputs: The AudioControl LC2i is equipped with 9.5-volt
preamp outputs w/ level matching controls. It features a pair of Main preamp
outputs (for full-range amplifiers) and a pair of Bass preamp outputs (for
Active Circuitry: The active circuitry used in the LC2i provides
dramatically better sound quality and does not compromise the bass response.
AccuBass: The AudioControl LC2i features AccuBass processing for
correction of bass roll-off. AccuBass processing automatically corrects for the
bass roll-off that is common with many factory installed audio systems. AccuBass
Bass Compensation works at any volume level.
Threshold & Level Controls: Simple "Threshold" and "Level" controls allow
users to optimize the bass response to match their speaker system.
GTO (Great Turn On): The AudioControl LC2i utilizes selectable GTO
auto sensing turn-on circuitry so no remote wire is needed. The LC2i turns on
using the unit's speaker-level inputs. It also provides a 12-volt trigger output
to turn on your amplifier.
Remote Level Control: The AudioControl LC2i is equipped with a Bass
Control Input (RJ-11) for optional remote bass level control (sold separately).
Mounting: The LC2i features integrated mounting flanges to mount the
unit under a seat, in the trunk, or under the dash. No mounting hardware is
Power Connections: The AudioControl LC2i requires a hardwired power
and ground connection to your vehicle's 12-volt electrical system. The
line-output converter features removable flat-head set-screw terminals for
