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.
Applications: The OEM-2 is a
universal sound system interface and controller, which can be used to:
Remote Turn-on Connections:
- connect an aftermarket
radio to a common ground speaker system
- convert speaker level output to
preamp output; this allows you to feed aftermarket amplifiers signals from
factory or aftermarket radios without preamp outputs
- add aftermarket amplifiers to
factory premium systems (Bose, JBL, etc)
- connect an aftermarket radio to a factory
unit includes remote turn-on outputs for
amplifiers or a power antennas. It will provide 2A at 12V when 5V or more is
applied to the input side; the 5V trigger threshold is especially useful when
this item is used with a Ford factory radio that supplies a low voltage trigger. There will be a 2 second delay of the turn-on lead to
prevent turn on pops.
Independent Level Controls: This adapter has 4 independently controlled potentiometer
outputs to adjust the signal level of each channel. These potentiometers are
sealed to prevent circuit-induced distortion and signal drift.
Inputs/Outputs: On the
input side of the adapter, there are 6" long wires for the signal input,
constant power, switched power and remote turn-on connections. On the output
side of the adapter, there are two sets of RCA preamp outputs on 9"
pigtails, and there are 6" long wires for the signal output, constant
power, switched power and remote turn-on connections. Refer to the
instructions for specific information on wiring configuration for your
