AudioControl LC2i (black) OEM Line Converter

Main and subwoofer outputs give you more options for connecting outboard amps.

Get your bass back

Some factory radios dial down the bass as you turn up the volume to protect their speakers. The problem is, they don't give it back when you upgrade to a nice set of aftermarket speakers. AudioControl packs the LC2i with their AccuBASS™ circuitry that reverses the factory bass rolloff, giving you the bass you need to enjoy your music to the fullest. Place the LC2i between your factory system and your bass amp, and you'll hear a huge difference in bass response.

High-voltage signal for great sound

Some premium systems use multi-wire speaker cables for systems with multiple speakers. The LC2i features two speaker-level inputs that let you connect amplified signals up to 400 watts, including cables from Bose® and other premium factory systems. The LC2i then sends out a high-powered preamp signal — up to 9.5 volts RMS — that helps every amp perform to its maximum ability.

Convenience

The optional dash-mount remote control allows you to adjust the level of your sub channel on the go. The speaker-level inputs sense incoming signals and turn on the LC2i, while a built-in 12-volt trigger tells your amps or other gear to turn on when you start your car.

Specifications

Features

Overview: The AudioControl LC2i is an active, high-voltage OEM line converter. This compact, two-channel processor with active input circuitry, accepts speaker-level signals of up to 400-watts per channel from factory-installed source units or amplifiers. It then converts the speaker-level signals to high-quality pre-amp signals that can be directed to after market processors and/or amplifiers. You no longer have to compromise when performing basic amplifier additions to factory installed audio systems. You can enjoy maximum sound quality while maintaining the use of your factory volume and steering wheel controls.

Compact Chassis Design: The AudioControl LC2i active, high-voltage OEM line converter features a compact chassis for an unobtrusive installation.

Two Channel Speaker-Level Input: The AudioControl LC2i features a two channel active/speaker-level input that accepts up to 400-watt per channel signals. The two-channel line-output converter features removable set-screw Phoenix terminals for quick connection.

9.5V Preamp Outputs: The AudioControl LC2i is equipped with 9.5-volt RMS (13-volt peak) preamp outputs w/ level matching controls. It features a pair of Main preamp outputs (for full-range amplifiers) and a pair of Bass preamp outputs (for subwoofer amplifiers).

Active Circuitry: The active circuitry used in the LC2i provides dramatically better sound quality and does not compromise the bass response.

AccuBass: The AudioControl LC2i features AccuBass processing for correction of bass roll-off. AccuBass processing automatically corrects for the bass roll-off that is common with many factory installed audio systems. AccuBass Bass Compensation works at any volume level.

Threshold and Level Controls: Simple Threshold and Level controls allow users to optimize the bass response to match their speaker system.

GTO (Great Turn On): The AudioControl LC2i utilizes selectable GTO auto sensing turn-on circuitry so no remote wire is needed. The LC2i turns on using the unit's speaker-level inputs. It also provides a 12-volt trigger output to turn on your amplifier.

Remote Level Control: The AudioControl LC2i is equipped with a Bass Control Input (RJ-14) for optional remote bass level control (sold separately).

Mounting: The LC2i features integrated mounting flanges to mount the unit under a seat, in the trunk, or under the dash. No mounting hardware is supplied.

Power Connections: The AudioControl LC2i requires a hardwired power and ground connection to your vehicle's 12-volt electrical system. The line-output converter features removable set-screw Phoenix terminals for quick connection.

Q
Can I tap the LC2i into the rear speaker wires in the back seat since I'm putting my amp in the trunk? Or is the signal "better" by the head unit?
[ Bwines  Mar 02, 2019 ]

A
Yes done this several times and no problem with it. Makes the install a lot easier as well.
[ Joe  Mar 12, 2019 ]

The rear should be good assuming it iOS s true full range signal and not crossed over
[ Jeremy  Mar 11, 2019 ]
A
I hooked mine up to the back speakers, I don't think it matters, this item is from what I understand changes the analog signal to digital signal. Mine works great and sounds great.
[ Lyn  Mar 10, 2019 ]
A
Yes you can. Signal is still very good at rear speakers. I did an install as you described, and have been pleased with the results. The LC2i is a great unit.
[ STEPHEN  Mar 10, 2019 ]

They reccomend going as close to the source as possible but when I did mine I went off rear speakers and it worked just fine

I've installed an LC2i in a couple of my vehicles and they work great. They are simple to install. I spliced into my existing left and right speaker wires (Posi Products wire connectors work great for this) and hooked them to the speaker inputs of the LC2i. Next I wired the +12v and ground of the LC2i with the power and ground of my Sub Amp. Lastly, I connected my RCA cable from the bass output of the LC2i to the RCA inputs of my sub amp. Some minor adjustments of the controls and you're good to go. I hope this helps.
[ Craig  Oct 05, 2018 ]
A
not sure what the question is but the LC2i sounds like it will do the job if you are wanting to keep factory head unit and add aftermarket sub and amp. if you are looking for wiring/hook up instructions, i will save a lot of typing and refer you to the online manuals available through crutchfield...very simple to follow even if you have NOT hooked up these type devices before....hope that helps and good luck!!!
[ JARRETT  Oct 05, 2018 ]
A
You're going to need to connect the LC2i inputs (L+,L-,R+,R-) in parallel to the outputs from your factory head unit. (Wire taps work great for this. Or you could always solder for a better connection.) Then you can run an RCA pair from the LC2i to your subwoofer amplifier, along with a remote wire from your factory head unit, along with a power wire from your battery. Hope this answers your question and if you don't understand this it would be best to have a professional take care of it.
[ Shane  Oct 04, 2018 ]
A
Hey. With the LC2i you have a few options. You can use your factory subwoofer lines: cut out factory subwoofer and utilize its output as an input to your LC2i. If you dont have a factory subwoofer you can jump any of your other audio lines. There's more ways just check out your manual
[ CHRISTIAN  Oct 04, 2018 ]
Q
When the ACR-1 remote is connected, does it override and disable the bass volume dial on the front of the LC2i itself?
[ justin  Aug 27, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
i am fairly certain the remote only controls the main output level. Bass and AccuBASS will still be adjusted (if ever needed after initial setup) by front dials. Hope that helps!
[ JARRETT  Aug 31, 2018 ]
Q
Can I use the factory sub line as the input to this device?
[ Dan  Aug 06, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
You probably can but it wouldn't be ideal. Factory sub line will be tuned for just bass and wont be the same quality as any line going to a regular speaker. You can use a speaker line to an equalizer or tune it straight thru the lc2i.
[ Shane  Aug 08, 2018 ]
A
Shouldn't be a problem at all.
[ Tim  Aug 06, 2018 ]
Q
Is it safe to tap into the power from the amp to supply power to the LC2i? Or do you need to run a separate fused power wire to the battery?
[ Vincem1223  Mar 15, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
It will work perfectly fine tapping into amp power. Just make sure you put a fuse in between the signal converter and where you tap in.
[ Brian  Mar 27, 2018 ]
A
You can run it directly off of your amp. It's 12 volt. Check the fuse rating on both to be sure it is sufficient. I ran it in this configuration and have not had any problems
[ Joe  Mar 27, 2018 ]
Q
Would this work with a 4 channel amp?
[ Gerardo  Jan 31, 2018 ]

A
It would..but you could only hook up 2 channels so it wouldnt be the best choice obviously ..the lc6 is what you need to use all 4 channles from your amp

It requires 12 volt power, and is designed to work in an automotive environment, so I would think there would be a better solution for you.
[ James  Sep 15, 2017 ]
Q
Will this product create separation in the sound, or by tying into just one speaker does it eliminate the separation that goes on in the vehicle from left to right? My concern is that the added speakers will not have left right separation as if they were hooked up with an aftermarket head unit
[ Derek  Aug 21, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
You cant connect this with just 1 speaker if thats what you mean? If you was using it to connect just a sub..you would connect a left and right signal from your factory system to hook up a sub..same if you was using it to connect a set of speakers..Like using it to connect to a set of rear speakers or door speakers..you connect a left and right from factory system to the LC2..
[ david  Aug 22, 2017 ]
Q
If I use high level inputs to turn on unit Wil the remote turn on output turn my amps on or do I have to run a different wire?
[ Greg  Aug 20, 2017 ]

A
Yes, the remote output in the LCi2 will work fine.
[ Vincent  Aug 21, 2017 ]
A
I use multiple amps with my system so a seperate remote wire needs to be ran for each unit. The signal from your LC2i is only audio and that will not power an amp up. You have to be able to tell each unit that there is a signal to turn on, which is what your remote wire does.
[ Ben  Aug 20, 2017 ]
A
The unit will turn on your amplifier as it checks for signal every 5ish mins to determine if it needs to be on, that being said the amplifier will stay on for approximately 5 mins after the stereo or car is turned off.
[ shannon  Aug 20, 2017 ]

You run a remote wire from the lc2i to the amp.

Q
Under the Input and Output section of the description it says, "2 speaker-level inputs with 400 watts RMS power handling". Does this mean the largest amp that can be ran is 400 watts?
[ Outlaw  Jul 13, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I believe that means the speaker level GOING into the LC2I which would mean amplified factory car stereos can still be sent into the LC2I most other line convertors cant accept Factory Amped signals where as this does

Will this unprocess the signal from either sub amp or rear speaker amp in 2017 Mustang with Shaker Pro system?
[ BPnAZ  Jun 16, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I'm not sure I fully understand your question so here's how I used it. I have a Lexus GX460 with the Mark Levinson sound system. It sounds great except the single 10 Subwoofer was not enough for my taste. So I added two 12 inch Subs with a Sony Xplod 1200 watt Amp. It has high level and low level inputs. My factory Mark Levinson amp has about 50 wires going to it to power 17 speakers. I did not want to risk blowing up the factory amp or head unit so I just unplugged to factory sub and wired it into the high level inputs of my Sony amp. It worked but still didn't have the punch that it used to have with my old SUV that had with a Kenwood head unit. So I bought this Audio Control LC2ib and wired in the same way except I wired it to the low level inputs of my Sony amp. Now I have all the bass anyone would want. With all the fine tuning adjustments on this Audio Controller I usually adjust the bass on my head unit almost all the down. This is exactly what I wanted so not to over work the other 16 speakers.
[ John  Jun 16, 2017 ]
Q
If I use speaker level inputs and those speakers only receive low frequencies, will the RCA outputs only send low frequencies?
[ Chris  May 16, 2017 ]

I have the LC2i hooked up on a factory head unit in a 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander. My inputs are taken off the front two channels and from there I have taken the signal to a small amp running a Focal mods and highs. I ordered the remote level control for my subs and run 2 Quantom 12" subs off the low output on the unit. The remote level on works great and shuts the system off when powered down. Totally impressed with the bass control preventing the drop off from the factory unit. Signal from the subs are low and clear with no distortion or roll off. If your putting a system in and don't want to mess with the factory head unit and controls this is the answer. All my functions of phone calls, the CD changer and the use of blue tooth with my phone clear and powerful. Hope this helps?
[ Ben  May 17, 2017 ]
A
Yes, if you use the bass RCA outputs.

I've done the same thing and this is totally the correct answer. Sounds like your trying to have 2 on switches if that makes any sense?

You should have a power wire coming in from your battery into the +12V input of the LC2i. There is no wire to connect to the remote in (once speaker wires are connected into the LC2i the signal of the music will activate it and turn the LC2i on. You will then have a wire coming from the LC2i remote out and into the remote in of the amp. You also need an additional power wire for the amp (4 gage) depending on application. Does this make sense?

Mine stayed on for about 5 mins after the radio was off I think it checks for signal every few mins to turn on or off.

Q
Can I run this with a 4 channel amp, using 1 set of preouts for the front door speakers, and the 2nd preout for a bridged subwoofer?

I plan on doing the same exact thing with mine, however I haven't done it yet so I can't say definitively it works. There are two pairs of rca outputs that are labeled full and low output so I'm hoping it works when I try it.

No not at all all the converter does is convert the fequency of the wires from high to low for the sub if you are tapping into door speakers. I ended up running my new amp to the sub output wires on my factory amp and didn't use the converter at all. You can control bass output from your new amp.

You can adjust the bass on the LC2ib manually . But it will stay at the level you adjust it to. You will need the Acr-1 to adjust the bass on the fly from the driver seat

The converter will not "power" your amp, no. It will allow you to convert the high-level signal from factory amplified speaker leads into the RCA pre-amp connections for providing signal to your amplifier's RCA inputs. It also offers signal sensing turn-on for both it and your amplifier. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5
