JL Audio XD-CLRAIC2-SW

Crutchfield customer from San Francisco, CA on 2/27/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used this to tap into 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee door speakers to run an KXA1600.1 amp and 2 L7s. Works fine. Not sure if an LC2 would produce a better signal. I'll install an LC2 when I replace the door speakers, that's later on down the line. When installing these JL Audio RCAs , take the extra few minutes to do it right. Use positaps or soldier. Calvin at Crutchfield set me up with all I needed. Heres something to think about, make sure you tap into the correct door speakers to get that full signal, in my case I had to tap the front door speakers, that's where the best bass signal came from.

Pros: Inexpensive and good quality

Cons: None

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So/So. Adequate for the job I suppose, but nothing special. The wire is so thin that when you try to strip the insulation the wire breaks with it. I honestly expected some thicker gauge wire buying a "Premium" product, but these are no different than the inexpensive ones you could buy at Wal-Mart.

Solid product sold at a GREAT price! The wire is long enough (6" or so) to reach my amp. The RCA jacks fit extremely snug to the input RCA jacks of my JL HD900/5. The wire is also very soft.

Pros: Cheap Great, short RCA jacks Long enough wire

Cleaner install for compatible JL amps, less bulk than having a line output converter and the JL amp does the work for you, I tapped into rear speakers of my car in the trunk, and I still get great clean sound

Wow

joshua from Elizabethtown, KY on 6/18/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These made adding an amp and keeping my factory radio easy. No need for a signal processor (but maybe my amp helped ) sounds awesome just like a aftermarket reciever with outpits built in. Just make sure u tape up the ends if u hooke them up directly behind your radio. I did and they were touching and i got all kids of noise until i taped them up

Pros: Great sound with factory radio

Cons: Metal tips can touch and cause noise through your speakers but easily fixed

RCA Connectors

Mark from Philadelphia Pennsylvania on 11/19/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The item itself seemed to be good quality. And it was good it came with an extra set. I was connecting them to a cassette player/recorder. However, they didn't work. I'm not sure if it was the connection I made, the player I was using, or the RCA plugs.

Pros: Good quality.

Cons: Didn't work.

Crutchfield response on 12/2/2015
Thanks to this review, we updated the information on this item to reflect that this adapter is designed to work with select JL Audio amps and is NOT a line output converter, which actually converts the high-voltage speaker-level signal to a low-voltage line-level signal. If you need a line output converter, you'll find them here.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great product, it doesn't show in Crutchfield's description but, the terminals are labeled for the positive wire with little "+" symbols on the wire jacket. The wire is well insulated at the plug connectors. The plugs have red and white rings to help in associating the left and right channels.

Pros: Low profile plugs are great for plugging in right spaces like the back of the radio/receiver and mating them to RCA audio interconnects.

Cons: None so far.

This is a fantastic product, as I'm accustomed to from JL Audio. For my specific application I could have easily used a longer wire to splice into my factory speaker wiring, but regardless I'm very satisfied with buying these adapters.

Pros: Quality product

Cons: Wiring could be longer to minimize wire splicing.

Another solid JL product

miguelito from Hawaii on 6/21/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

All in all this is a great product for those of us that need to get an older JL amp into a factory equipped audio system. I had to convert my factory speaker wires into a preamp level RCA for my older JL 250/1v2. The cables prove to be of durable materials and everything fit properly. I even like the added touch of the barrel adapters if your setup required them.

Pros: Long enough wires for my install and not too long where they get in the way.

Cons: The RCA connection wasn't as secure and tight as i would like but still holds onto the amp okay.

I have an Alpine mrp-m1000 amp and 2 10" 4ohm type R's. I wanted to keep it stock with my 6 disk cd changer. I tapped into my rear speakers with the JL output converter and let me say the bass is more than loud!!! Real easy just solder some speaker wire or the JL's if you have some rca cables to the rear speakers and that's it. Crutchfield said wouldn't be glass shattering but its pretty close. I would def recommend this easy cheap fix to anyone!!! just wish the wires were longer 2009 Toyota Corolla S 6 disk Cd changer with 6 speakers

More details on the JL Audio XD-CLRAIC2-SW

Mark G.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The JL Audio RCA-to-Speaker Wire Adapters (XD-CLRAIC2-SW) allow high level speaker outputs to be connected via RCA plugs. Ideal for use with amplifiers that have high-level input capability, but no speaker wire input connections. The molded RCA plugs are short and the speaker wire is 18AWG to allow for easy installation in tight areas.

Note: This is not a line output converter. It does not change a high voltage speaker level signal to a low voltage line level signal, and should not be used to connect a speaker level signal to an amp that only has line level inputs.

Q
will these work for a subwoofer installation as well?
[ larry  Nov 12, 2018 ]
6 answers
A
Yes, that's what I used them for. I took the high-level signal from the B-Pillars and used these to convert them to RCA. My Amp can use that high-level signal at the RCA inputs - I believe it uses the higher level signal from the speaker input as a remote signal. It's been a while since I did the install. I've also used these in the house when I ran a second sub in the living room. Nice solid connections.
[ Jeremy  Nov 14, 2018 ]
A
I don't se why not. As long as it has a negative and positive port it should.

[ jeffrey  Nov 13, 2018 ]

Yes they will. I used them to go from the hardwire pulled through my walls to connect to my amp on one end and my sub on the other.
[ Joshua  Nov 13, 2018 ]

A
I'm not sure why you would do that . Plus most amps use bare wire outputs to hook up your speakers
[ JONATHAN  Nov 11, 2018 ]
A
Yes, I did something similar when I installed my system as my AMP had line level input options on the RCA input jacks. I tapped into the factory rear speaker supply wires so I could control the amp volume with the fader controls. It's is amassing what a little extra base can do for a factory system
[ Jonathan  Nov 11, 2018 ]
Q
I'm tapping the stock signal before the stock amplifier.Was planning on using 20awg speaker wire and at the DSP using this JL connector to the input.Is it recommend to use RCA cable for the full length or will the speaker wire work fine? BTW,It is high quality Crutchfield speaker wire that has quite a thick soft insulation.
[ John  Feb 28, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
If your tapping in behind the radio or in the kick panel I would run a full length rca. Reason being you might replace your factory radio one day and you would want the rca to plug directly into the radio.

[ ALVIN  Jan 12, 2014 ]
A
You can add extra wire to it & make it as long as you need.
[ Juan  Jan 11, 2014 ]
A
Specifically, I would think that only Crutchfield can answer that. My question to you would be "why would you want them longer?" I have "Audioquest FLX-DB14/2" wire for all my long runs. This is supposed to be the best there is and is approved for in-wall wiring. I would think that having shorter runs (wire) would decrease the chances of distortion. I needed these to temporarily hookup my speakers to my Oppo BDP-95 Blu-Ray player while I send my AV receiver in for repair. The Oppo's outputs use the RCA plugs and the receiver utilizes bare wire or speaker cable connector "pins" which I elected to not use. The only thing that I could see that might be better would to use a "soldered" connection but I couldn't find any. I know I won't be using these as a permanent connection.

I don't think so. Just get more speaker wire.

Q
Does this actually attenuate the signal or just make it easier to connect? One could wire on any RCA connector to a speaker lead. But do the barrel connectors actually change the signal?

Ensures an easier connection. I prefer running rca cables down the car rather than speaker wire, also the rca cables are more shielded from any interference than speaker wire would be

No the barrel connectors are just a way to connect two male ends.

Just makes it easier to connect. I used this to tap in to my factory speaker wires to send signal to my JL Slash 500/1

It didn't increase or decrease the signal but it surely take the alternator sound off my system.. It might be different if you directly going to the an amp with speaker input ... My system got an eq so when I tried to connect gave me a muffled sound and didn't sound good when I connect directly to the speaker output. Might be good product do a factory radio maybe.. Hope this helps

No, it just makes it easier to connect. But if you think you can just wire any rca connection on to speaker wire, you are mistaken. Most will be near impossible so these are worth grabbing imo.
