JL Audio DRC-100
Digital remote controller for a JL Audio FiX™ 82 processor
Our take on the JL Audio DRC-100 by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Remote control for the JL Audio FiX and TwK processors
The DRC-100 Digital Remote Controller lets you adjust the volume of a system that's using a JL Audio FiX 82 sound processor. Although offered as an option, you'll need the DRC-100 to adjust your system's volume if you want to maintain accurate processing at all levels.
In addition to volume control, the DRC-100 features a Handsfree Optimization Mode that disables the FiX's time-correction and adds a high-pass filter to the audio to clarify the sound when making hands-free phone calls. A multi-colored LED reports the operational status of the processing, so you'll know what's going on from the driver's seat:
- Green: system OK
- Red: signal clipping — reduce source volume
- Amber: Handsfree Mode active
Warranty: 2 years.
