About the Scosche LOC80

Scosche's LOC80 line output converter allows you to connect a receiver with no preamp outputs to an amplifier without speaker-level inputs. The LOC80 handles a speaker-level signal up to 80 watts RMS per channel, and converts it to a line-level signal you can plug into your amp's input.

The LOC80 reduces the incoming speaker-level signals so you can use a stereo RCA patch cable (not included) to make the connection to your amp. The converter features adjustable gain settings on each channel, and it's compatible with almost any car stereo. Warranty: 90 days.

Features

Overview: The Scosche Car Stereo Speaker Level Converter (LOC-80) is a non-active, "passive" device that allows any car stereo to be connected to an amplifier or EQ booster. This is accomplished by converting the speaker high-level outputs an the car stereo into low-level RCA jacks by electronically converting the signal as it is passed through the Scosche LOC-80.

Installation: You can use the Scosche LOC-80 whenever you wish to add an amplifier or EQ booster to a car stereo that is not equipped with RCA (low-level) outputs. By simply connecting the speaker inputs of the LOC-80 to the speaker outputs of the car stereo, you can now add an amplifier or EQ booster to your vehicle's audio system.

  • Speaker Inputs: The attached speaker level input wires are 4-3/4" long. Connect the left (+) speaker wire of your car stereo to the white wire of the LOC-80 and connect the left (-) speaker wire to the white/black wire of the LOC-80. Then connect the right (+) speaker wire to the gray wire of the LOC-80 and connect the right (-) speaker wire to the gray/black wire of the LOC-80.
  • RCA Outputs: Connect the RCA output jacks of the LOC-80 to the RCA inputs of your amplifier or EQ booster (Red = Right, White = Left).

Note: Double check all connections and test the sound system. The wiring colors of the LOC-80 may be different from the wiring colors found on your car stereo.

Output Level Adjustment: The Scosche Car Stereo Speaker Level Converter is equipped with output level controls that can be adjusted for proper sound level matching. This done by inserting a small flat-blade or phillips-head screwdriver into the gain adjustment holes, located on top of the LOC-80. by turning clockwise, the gain for that individual channel, or the amount of sound allowed to pass through the LOC-80 is increased. By turning counterclockwise, the gain for that individual channels is decreased. If you feel that after increasing the volume of your stereo, the sound is too quiet, then equally increase both the left and right gains of the LOC-80until the sound level is adequate. If the sound level is too loud with only a slight increase in stereo volume, or distortion (poor sound quality) is noticeable, then equally decrease the gains of the LOC-80.

You can use this device to tap into the positive and negative of a speaker from the right and left, either the front or rear doesn't matter. Use a speaker map which will show you what color wires are in your factory system. Then all you need are RCA cables to connect to your amplifier.

Hi Daniel! Thank you for your question. You can use this converter to tap into the factory rear channel speaker wire, to add in your powered subwoofer. Once this is installed, you will be able to connect your subwoofer via RCA to this converter, and receive a stronger signal to your powered sub. If you would like to go over this product in more detail, feel free to chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. They will be happy to help.
