Audio Control 6-channel line output converter (LC2i)
Looking for great sound from your factory radio? Would you like to upgrade your car's premium system? AudioControl's LC2i line output converter takes amplified speaker-level signals and converts them into high-quality preamp signals that can be fed to another processor or amplifier. In other words, it lets you create an awesome car audio system without disturbing your factory controls or features.

The LC6i sums its input signals together, even if they've been crossed over for tweeters, mids, and subs by the factory system. That way, you can count on a strong, smooth, full-range signal for your processors and amps. The LC6i features six RCA preamp outputs that'll handle a traditional front/rear/sub setup.
Level-matching with an LED indicator
AudioControl makes it easy: set your factory stereo to about 3/4 maximum volume, turn the output level control of the LC6i until the "Maximized" light begins to flicker, then adjust the gain controls on your amps, and you're done. You've level-matched the output of your receiver to the amplifier's input, so you can count on getting maximum performance and minimum noise from your system.
The optional dash-mounted ACR-1 wired remote allows you to adjust the volume of the bass while you're on the go. The speaker-level inputs sense incoming signals and turn on the LC6i, while a built-in 12-volt trigger turns on your amps as well. If your factory system only has channels for front and rear speakers, AutoMode™ will create the output you can use for your subs.
Speaker Input: The speaker level inputs are compatible with nearly any factory stereo system, even most Bose systems. There are 3 pair of inputs that will accommodate up to 400 watts.
Channel Summing: The LC6i has the ability to sum together multiple input channels (4 or 6) from the factory source unit into 2 channels. This is handy when the factory system has multiple, actively crossed-over signals sent from the OEM source unit or amplifier(s). For example, in some vehicles there is an actively crossed-over tweeter, midrange, and woofer all in the front of the vehicle. The LC6i lets you take all of those signals and sum them together to get a high-quality, full-range, pre-amp signal without the use of any additional cables or hardware.
AutoMode Inputs: When there is no signal present at the channel 3 input, the channel 2 input automatically feeds the channel 2 and channel 3 outputs.
Output Level: The +/- 12 dB output level allows you to adjust the head unit's voltage to the top of your amp's input range; up to 9.5 volts RMS. Each of the three pair of RCA outputs has its own level adjustment.
Auto Turn-on: The main speaker level input has a signal sensing circuit; the unit turns on when there's a speaker level input signal and turns off when the signal disappears.
Remote Output: The +12 volt DC remote output will trigger an amp to turn on whenever the LC6i is on. The remote's maximum current output is 1 amp.
Optional Sub Level Control: With the addition of an optional wired remote (161ACR1, sold separately), you can easily adjust the output level of channel 3, often used for a subwoofer.
Ground Isolation: The power supply ground is switchable, in case of ground loop noise. The factory position is fully isolated (typically the best choice), but can be changed to Ground or 200Ω.
Terminal Blocks: The power/ground/remote in/remote out terminal and the speaker level input terminals are removable; the wiring is attached to the block, then the block is plugged into the LC6i. The terminal blocks will accommodate wire up to 12 gauge.
