PAC APA-TOS1

HARRY from Minnetonka, MN on 2/14/2018

This is a great little addition to a very good product. The optical output simplifies the entire install process by eliminating the need for RCA's. One optical cable does it all, not to mention a pure clean signal, zero background noise {a good thing especially if using a DSP}. If you are building a quality system you can't go wrong getting this addition.

Pros: Eliminates the need for bulky RCA's from the head unit. Clean Accurate sound.

Cons: Haven't found any.

Features

Toslink Fiber Optical Output Add-on Module: The APA-TOS1 is a fiber-optic audio output add-on module for use with PAC AmpPRO advanced amplifier interfaces (sold separately). The APA-TOS1 quickly and easily installs inside a AmpPRO interface and provides a digital toslink output. Connect any brand and length of toslink fiber-optic cable (not included), so you can connect a toslink equipped DSP or amplifier into your vehicle.

  • Quick and easy installation into any AmpPRO interface.
  • Provides a digital fiber-optic variable audio signal output (up to 2ch).
  • Compatible with toslink equipped DSPs or Amplifiers.
  • Digital audio signals are less susceptible to noise or interference.
Note: The APA-TOS1 must be used in conjunction with a PAC AmpPRO advanced amplifier interface (sold separately). No toslink fiber-optic cable is included and must be purchased separately.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
wanted optical to my DSP [ Jeffrey  Aug 26, 2019 ]
A
For my TOS link cable, of course! [ The Engineer  May 02, 2019 ]
A
Because I have a JL Audio VXi amp with optical inputs. Many of the reviews on Amazon also imply that the analog RCA inputs introduce unwanted noise, that the optical output does not. . [ DAVID  Sep 16, 2018 ]
A
the factory system sounds poor so just hoping the digital signal is reasonably clean [ New User  Nov 11, 2017 ]
A
I have a Helix DSP with optical in. This will simplify installation by only running one cable. [ Timothy  Aug 12, 2017 ]

Q
How come the stereo shops don't sell you this from the get-go? they keep telling me I have a weak signal and I need to put a new deck in. I have already bought a bigger amp and it still hasn't fixed the problem. Now they're telling me I need to put in new door speakers in with a 4 channel amp. Sounds like they're really sticking it to me.

Q
Will I still need to have a line out converter. Wanting to add 4 channel amp. And also mono amp replacing all factory speaker and sub?

When using a compatible PAC AmpPRO Amplifier Replacement Interface, no, you do not need to use a separate line output converter: https://www.crutchfield.com/g_304950/Vehicle-specific-Amp-Interfaces.html?tp=6348 For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phone or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx
