Features

Overview: This is a versatile adapter that allows for multiple applications. If your receiver doesn't have preamp outputs and you want to connect it to an amp that doesn't have speaker level inputs, this adapter can be used to convert you receiver's speaker level outputs into preamp outputs. With this adapter, you can hook either a 2-channel or 4-channel amplifier to this adapter, and not lose fader control. This adapter also allows you to add an aftermarket receiver to either a common ground audio system in your vehicle, or an audio system that has factory amplifiers (like many of the Premium, JBL, and Bose audio systems). There are gain controls for both the line outputs and the factory amp inputs. Which gain controls you use depends on your application. Note: There is a plastic screwdriver that is physically attached to the adapter, and must be broken off to use. It is used to adjust gain controls and screw down the speaker terminals.

Speaker-Level-to-Line Level Conversion: The adapter can convert car stereo speaker outputs to RCA outputs so an external 2 or 4 channel amplifier can be added to a car audio system. There are line output controls that allow you to adjust the output level going into your amplifier(s). The adapter can handle up to 80 watts of speaker level input.

Interface with Factory Amplified Systems: This adapter allows the matching and installation of an aftermarket receiver with most factory amplified systems like the Premium/JBL/Bose systems.

Subwoofer Application: The adapter will allow for the integration of a subwoofer or subwoofers to nearly any audio system. There are line output controls that you can use to adjust the output level going into your amplifier(s).

Common Ground Audio Systems: With this adapter, you can add an aftermarket receiver to a common ground system in your vehicle without having to run new speaker wires. There are factory amp gain controls that you can use to adjust the input levels.

Common Ground/Factory Amp/Line Out Switch: Depending on how you are using the adapter will depend on what position the switch will be in. If you are adding a new receiver to a common ground system, then the switch is put into the "Common Ground" position. If you are adding the receiver to a factory system that uses Premium, JBL, and or Bose, then the switch is put into the Factory Amp position. You can also add an external amp to a receiver that does not have line outputs; in this case the switch will be in the "Line Out" position. There are factory amp gain controls that you can use to adjust the input levels.

Great price and worked great.


 
good product May-07-15
Reviewer: BMAC from Utah  
I had read several reviews and had some concern about this product. I found that by following the instruction it did exactly what it was made for and the sound control was amazing. Just need to add enough wire to the harness to be able to tuck it in the dash.


 
Versatile, does the job April-30-15

Used this to adapt an aftermarket head unit to the Monsoon amp in my 2005 Santa Fe, works well. To make sure I had a snug connection for the thin wires in the 2 harnesses (probably 22 ga) I stripped them to about 3/8" then folded them back double and tinned, gave a very secure hold by the screws. Adjusting the levels to the same for all channels is a little tricky because of the way the pots are recessed in the case. I set one channel in the car and then took the harness assembly in the house and set the other 3 using a flashlight and magnifying visor to see the position of the markings. Would have been much easier if the pots were at the surface and/or had detents. I used the recommended process for setting the levels so it starts to distort at 3/4 volume but found with some sources I didn't get enough - went back and set it so that I started to hear sound at about 3 out of 35, much better. Unit is pretty large because it can be used in 4 different ways, I have lots of room in my dash so no issue but I can see how some might have a problem fitting it in. I would have preferred to be able to get a harness with RCA's that would go direct like they had for my Avalon with factory amp but it wasn't available. At least it was half price with my order.

It's not bad, I just think adjusting the settings to maximize the clarity at top volume left some to be desired.
