AudioControl created the Overdrive to ensure that your amp sees the cleanest signal possible. Many modern car stereos boast 4- and 5-volt preamp outputs, but they're rated at full output. Turn your stereo to a normal volume level, send the signal through a 20-foot cable, and your amps may end up with just a couple of volts. That's why AudioControl made the Overdrive.
Higher voltage = lower noise
The Overdrive line driver boosts the signal from your receiver up to 24 dB, right up to the maximum level accepted by your amplifier or processor. The high voltage level keeps the noise out of your system, while feeding your amps the signal they need to deliver top performance.
- Line driver provides up to 24 dB of gain (9 volt RMS maximum)
- Gray steel chassis with gold-plated RCA jacks
- Top-mounted controls for easy adjustment
- 2-channel preamp inputs and outputs
- Balanced inputs and outputs eliminate noise
- Light indicates 2-, 5-, or 7.5 volt output
- Frequency response: 10 to 100,000 Hz
- Signal-to-noise ratio: 110 dB at full output
- Maximum output level: 9.5 volts RMS (13 volts peak)
- Fuse rating: 1 amp

Signal strength is one of the most overlooked aspects in audio installations today. Amplifiers are only able to perform at a fraction of their potential because of this. To get more out of the equipment, usually the gain knob is cranked up resulting in higher distortion and unnecessary amperage draw from the elctrical system. But to get cleaner sound at higher volumes with less draw from the battery; enter Audio Control's Overdrive! Great craftsmanship, solid performance, incredible value! No question every serious enthusiast should have at least one of these in their colaberation of equipment
