About the PAC LR335

"Speakers not connected!"

Are you trying to add an aftermarket amp or processor to a factory system amplifier that freaks out when its speakers are disconnected? These load resistors from PAC may be the perfect solution. You simply wire each resistor to the positive and negative speaker wires of each channel coming out of the factory amplifier or into your aftermarket device. This will "fool" the factory amp into sensing speakers, and then playing normally. The package includes five resistors to cover systems with front and rear speakers plus a subwoofer.

Product highlights:

What's in the box:

  • Five 33-ohm/5-watt load resistors

Product Research


Load Resistor Pack: This five pack of 33-ohm/5-watt load resistors (LR335) is used when the factory installed amplifier or radio needs to see a speaker load to stay operational. These load resistors can be wired to the output channels of the factory amplifier or radio and simulate the load of a speaker, so the audio output is retained.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Guys, does a resistor need to be installed on every factory speaker output you disconnected? I disconnected nine speakers but only used five speaker high level outputs to feed my DSP. The other four outputs are just disconnected.

It depends on the vehicle, but typically each Oe output needs a resistor if the speaker is removed or the output cut. Unfortunately it the vehicle doesn't show a fault I. The cluster, you'll need a heavy duty scan tool to see if there's a "hard code" for the audio fault.
