A line output converter (LOC) will convert a speaker-level output signal into an RCA pre-amp signal. This allows you to connect an aftermarket amp directly to the radio. A LOC also can be used to connect an aftermarket radio to the car’s factory amplifier. If your amp does not already have a line output converter built in, you will need one to make these connections.
Bridging is a way to configure a two-channel amplifier to power a single speaker or subwoofer while producing more power than the channels would separately. While it usually doesn’t increase the total available power, bridging allows you to get more volume and better sound quality from an individual speaker. Check out our bridge products to make this modification easier.
You will need the following cables and wires to install an amplifier in your vehicle: RCA cables, a ground wire, an inline fuse, a remote turn-on wire and speaker cords.
Most mono amps have a volume knob to control the bass level directly. However, if you want to conveniently control the bass without pulling over to change the levels, a bass remote is recommended. This connects to the amp and can be mounted next to you in the driver or passenger seat for easy on-the-go adjustment.
