About the AudioControl AC-LGD

Bypass your factory radio's shut down circuit

Some factory radios and amplifiers will not work without sensing that speakers (low-impedance loads) are connected to their outputs, so successfully installing an aftermarket sound processor or amplifier becomes a challenge. AudioControl's AC-LGD Load Generating Devices solve this issue by generating an acceptable impedance load and stabilizing the signal for the factory system to handle.

Bypass your factory radio's shut down circuit

Some factory radios and amplifiers will not work without sensing that speakers (low-impedance loads) are connected to their outputs, so successfully installing an aftermarket sound processor or amplifier becomes a challenge. AudioControl's AC-LGD Load Generating Devices solve this issue by generating an acceptable impedance load and stabilizing the signal for the factory system to handle.

The AC-LGDs plug directly into any AudioControl line output converter (LOC), signal processor, or amplifier with speaker-level inputs. You can also use AC-LGDs with almost any non-AudioControl device by replacing the connectors.

Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge

Guest from Lorain, OH on 5/25/2019

These DO NOT work on Chrysler/Doge/Jeep applications. I've got a 2019 Chrysler 300 with a stock head unit, used an audio control lc7 and a JL audio fix load resistor and it fixed my mute problem. So save yourself the hassle and buy the JL fix version of this.

Pros:

Cons: DOES NOT WORK for Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge applications.

Was told that this product would work in my 2016 Ram with factory head unit ( non Alpine ). Still no sound from the radio . This is the second return to Crutchfield. The first being a damaged JL subwoofer new out of the box . I'm taking this truck on vacation in 2 weeks . Very disappointing. I cannot rate this product since it didn't work for me

Pros: Non noted

Cons: None noted

Was told by Crutchfield tech support I needed these to make my Jeep headunit create load for the amp. Did not work at all. Had to purchase a Line Out Control with RCA inputs to create a pre amp.

I should have done more research prior to purchase. Unit does not work for my application.

Pros: Great look. Easy installation.

Cons: Will not work with Jeep Uconnect.

Product Research

Features

Load Generating Device & Signal Stabilizer: Today's factory systems include more Class D amplifier technology which can mute, distort or emit damaging frequencies to your new aftermarket audio equipment when the factory speakers are removed. Using carefully selected resistors and a Zobel Network, AudioControl's AC-LGD has been designed to generate load and stabilize signal from the factory system to ensure the best possible audio.

Note: The maximum recommended power handling for the AC-LGD is 100 watts or 20 volts.

Installation: The AC-LGD comes in a pair and can be easily connected to your factory system upgrade with the pre-wired connectors. The AC-LGD is installed between the factory speaker outputs and your line output converter or speaker level inputs on your amp or processor. Each LGD pair comes with standard wire colors for front and rear connections. Installation is simple -

  • Remove one input plug from your AudioControl active line output converter (LOC).
  • Unplug one end of AC-LGD then plug the AC-LGD into the LOC.
  • Install the plug you removed from the LOC to the open end of the AC-LGD.
  • Connect your factory speaker signals to the AC-LGD.

 Notes:

  • If you are using a LOC with different style connectors, you may unscrew the connectors from the AC-LGD wires and install different ones.
  • To prevent damage or overheating, do not install or mount the AC-LGD below carpet or near heat sensitive components.
  • The AC-LGD is NOT compatible with Dodge/Chrysler vehicles. For these, a 37-50 ohm / 5-10 watt resistor must be spliced in parallel on each set of speaker wires between the factory radio and the line output converter.

I thinking probably I need them (I think this is a quality product) because I have a LC7i (not installed yet) and my car stereo is canbus connected, I would like to prevent any issues connecting my stereo to my digital amplifiers. so If I don´t need them, I going to keep it and sell them later.

In case it doesn't sense speaker load? Was recommended but I figure I can return if I don't need [ Kyle  Jun 26, 2017 ]

Hmm. they are variable but I think they present a load equivalent to 4 ohm.
