Bluetooth a la carte
Bluetooth connectivity offers a host of conveniences, but until now you've had to install a new radio in order to access these benefits. AudioControl's ACX-BT1 Bluetooth adapter lets you add Bluetooth to any radio or amplifier with an RCA or AUX input. You'll get Bluetooth 4.1 for better connectivity, more dependable streaming, and greater range, as well as aptX HD support for streaming hi-res audio.
Ready for the great outdoors
The module features a remote turn-on output circuit which activates downstream amplifiers only when audio is being streamed. And since the ACX-BT1 is IPX5 rated, it's perfect for adding Bluetooth to your boat, motorcycle, ATV, or any other application requiring weather resistance. The ACX-BT1 can also be used as a no-head-unit solution in vehicles with a small amp instead of a radio. If you've been wishing you could have the convenience of Bluetooth with your current or new system, the time is now with the ACX-BT1.
