Wired remote for select AudioControl processors
Our take on the AudioControl ACR-1 by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
You use this handy wired remote control with select AudioControl sound processors to change the level or bass output. Its 2-color LED glows brighter as you increase output, then dims as you dial it back. Mount it on your dash so you can make on-the-fly level adjustments. The package includes a 20-foot cable and a mounting plate.
You need this when installing the LC7i. Works perfect.

AudioControl ACR-1 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: Using this wired remote (ACR-1) you can easily adjust the output level of channel 3 of the AudioControl LC6i/LC7i, often used for a subwoofer. The remote is designed to be dash mounted, within reach of the driver; it can be mounted under the dash with the supplied bracket, or the bracket can be removed and the knob and LED can be custom mounted through the dash.
Mounting Options: The dash control may be mounted under the dash using its own bracket or through a custom hold in the dash. It should be within reach of the driver and in a spot where the LED is plainly visible
- Bracket Installation: The dash control mounts with two screws, which attach to the underside of the dashboard. Slide under the dash and place the dash control in its mounting position, mark the two mounting holes, drill pilot holes, and secure with two screws.
- Custom Installation: For that custom, finished look, the dash control can be flush mounted directly on the dash-board (or anywhere else). Disassemble the dash control from the mounting bracket. Start by pushing the LED from its holder followed by removing the circuit board and rotary control from the bracket. Drill a 9/32" hole in the dashboard for the control along with a 1/8" hole for the lock tab and a 13/54" hold for the LED holder. Reassemble the dash control components on the dashboard.

Goes Great With The Audio Controls for LC2i for talioring the bass with this ACR-1 control knob. [ Matthew Oct 24, 2016 ]
I purchased this to remotely adjust my bass level in my Audio Control LC2iB 2-channel line output converter. Some music is heavy in bass and it gets annoying having to adjust the levels back and forth from the box in the trunk, pretty much the same as any other amp bass level remote. [ Rafael Oct 10, 2016 ]
Needed an external knob for my Audiocontrol Overdrive Plus. [ Aaron Aug 31, 2016 ]

Yes [ LEROY L Jun 10, 2017 ]
Yes, I drill a hole and flushed mounted on to my center console. It comes with the bolt and washer to secure tightly. 2015 Tacoma Access Cab [ Tu Jun 10, 2017 ]
Yes, the ARC-1 can flush mounted. It just requires you to take off the surface mount bracket and drill a hole and install. [ Brett Jun 10, 2017 ]
Yes, it actually comes with instructions in the box with pictures showing how to. [ Aaron Jun 10, 2017 ]
ANY amp will work as far as I know. [ JASON Aug 15, 2015 ]
No, this is for controlling the bass level on certain AudioControl units (crossovers, line output converter, OEM integration processors). I am using it with the LC2i Line output converter to control the bass level going from the LC2i to my subwoofer amplifier. In this sense it can be used to control any sub amp, but from the processor itself. If you don't have an AudioControl piece with this function, it will not control the bass level.

Any amp [ MICHAEL B Aug 14, 2015 ]
Ny amp [ MICHAEL B Aug 14, 2015 ]
The end is a telephone plug so unless your amp has the same connection then you probably can't use it without cutting and splicing a new connector on. [ James Aug 14, 2015 ]
I bought my knob to control my epicenter and you can connect an epicenter to any amp [ shaun Aug 14, 2015 ]
