About the AudioControl LC2i
High-quality line output converter
High-quality line output converter
Looking for great sound from your factory radio? Would you like to upgrade your car's premium system? AudioControl's LC2i line output converter takes amplified speaker-level signals and converts them into high-quality preamp signals that can be fed to another processor or amplifier. In other words, it lets you create an awesome car audio system without disturbing your factory controls or features.
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.
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.

More details on the AudioControl LC2i
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.
