Create a perfect pairing between a stereo receiver and amp with our selection of line output converter modules. There are a fair number of older receivers designed without pre-amp outputs — and just as many newer amplifiers that don’t have speaker-level inputs. If you have the misfortune of owning both, it can make trying to put a square peg in a round hole feel like a simple kid’s game.
This is where the line output converter — also known as an LOC or Hi/Lo — comes in. These boxes convert the speaker-level signal into an RCA pre-amp signal that the amplifier will recognize. Effectively, you’re tapping into the speakers to get the audio signal you need. An LOC is primarily used to connect an aftermarket amplifier to a factory radio but can also connect a new receiver to the factory amp. Whatever you need the power converted for, you can do so quickly and safely with this mobile sound processing gear.
OnlineCarStereo.com has the best selection of line output converters for cars, trucks and boats. A basic 2-channel LOC is perfect for a standard pair of full-range speakers that need a boost. They’re available in a mini size as well for compact cars and motorcycles. If you have a more complex system, there are 4-channel and even 8-channel line output converters to create as many low-level RCA signals as are necessary. Each one works by connecting the speaker wires to the LOC inputs and then linking the converter to the amplifier using RCA cables.
Some converters have additional sound processing features. You might get one with dual outputs, separate main and bass volume controls or an automatic trigger switch. These Hi/Lo factory integration devices actively work to produce the best possible signal using nothing more than your speaker wires. Universal line output converters are designed by leading brands such as AudioControl, JL Audio, Kicker and Axxess with free shipping from OnlineCarStereo.com.
