About the JL Audio DRC-200

Remote control for the JL Audio FiX and TwK processors

The DRC-200 Digital Remote Controller lets you adjust the level of the speaker and subwoofer outputs on JL Audio's FiX 86 sound processor. Although offered as an option, you'll need the DRC-200 to adjust your system's volume if you want to maintain accurate processing at all levels, and retain your factory system's front-to-rear fade feature.

Better sound for phone calls too

In addition to volume and bass control, the DRC-200 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.

Will the fix 86 and this controller override the volume knob of the UConnect radio in my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Or will they both work?
