About the Scosche LOC80

Scosche's LOC80 line output converter allows you to connect a receiver with no preamp outputs to an amplifier without speaker-level inputs. The LOC80 handles a speaker-level signal up to 80 watts RMS per channel, and converts it to a line-level signal you can plug into your amp's input.

Scosche's LOC80 line output converter allows you to connect a receiver with no preamp outputs to an amplifier without speaker-level inputs. The LOC80 handles a speaker-level signal up to 80 watts RMS per channel, and converts it to a line-level signal you can plug into your amp's input.

The LOC80 reduces the incoming speaker-level signals so you can use a stereo RCA patch cable (not included) to make the connection to your amp. The converter features adjustable gain settings on each channel, and it's compatible with almost any car stereo. Warranty: 90 days.

Scosche LOC80

Taylor from Milwaukee, WI on 4/8/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was recommended by one of the sales guys over the phone who helped me put together my kit. Came packaged well and was nice and compact. The hookups for the power wires was a bit louse as they were a screw down type not a electrical connector. But it works really well after a bit of tuning. There were no directions in the box on how to tune it but youtube came to the rescue,

Pros: Compact, great quality.

Cons: Electrical connectors not that secure, no directions in box.

Worked at first, I was adjusting the gain and it broke. Had to buy another one locally and it worked and my sub was performing 5x better

Pros: Cheap

Clean signal to amp from factory head unit.

Nick from Portland, OR on 5/26/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Exactly what I needed. I purchased a 2017 Buick Regal and wanted to add my two 12" Subwoofers. I needed a signal for my M-2250 Sound Ordnance 500 Watt amplifier. Tapped into the left rear driver side speaker for a signal. Hooked up the Scosche LOC80 and boom my B-24 12" Subwoofers are getting a super clean signal! I had no idea when I bought the new car I would be able to install myself. It makes me like my car even more that I installed the Subwoofers to the factory infotainment system myself!

Pros: Super clean signal. Super easy to install.

Cons: None!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My powered sub was playing bass when my factory radio volume was zero and the powered sub gain was very low. This radio has no RCA jacks. I used this device at the suggestion of AJ at Crutchfield. Using this unit, I lowered the audio level coming into the powered sub and then set the gain on the sub to half or more volume. This took care of the sub output when the radio volume was zero and now I have good bass when needed. The was in inexpensive solution that works great. Thanks to AJ at crutchfield.

Works great. Used this on a TV to send the audio to a powered sound bar instead of the internal speakers. Attached it to the back of the TV with some adhesive Velcro. Easy to install, just a little soldering, and came with clear instructions. Did not need to adjust levels, just kept them at the highest setting.

Exactly What I Needed

Jay from Daleville, VA on 12/4/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It worked perfectly. Exactly what I needed. I have a nice mini Sony integrated CD/FM/AM/BlueTooth input little system, but with cheap speakers and no line output. The device has enabled me to convert the speaker outputs back to line-out and then to some very nice compact PreSonos self-powered speakers. Result is a dramatic improvement in sound quality, and I can still use this very nice compact Sony CD player.

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: Be sure to read the wire-color codes. No problem, but color codes are not intuitive.

Absolutely fantastic way to tap into your factory radio to get an amplifier installed in your vehicle. Super easy setup too because even if you may not be able to tap into both speaker wires you can simply tap into one and still get signal for your amp.

Pros: Easy to install. Easy to setup. Cheap. Great way to retain your factory radio.

Cons: Plastic seems cheap but has held up so far.

It fell apart upon installation

Dave from Colorado Springs, CO on 3/15/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The device works as it should, but one of the pots broke the very first time I touched it. I had just finished the installation and was about to dial it in, when oops, tiny little bits came loose when I began dialing one of the channels. So only one channel out of two is working and the level adjusts up and down as it should. Maybe I just got a lemon, but it tells me the construction quality may be lacking at this price point.

Pros: Inexpensive, works properly

Cons: Poorly constructed potentiometers

Crutchfield response on 3/21/2017
Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Dave to help him further. We'll either help him get the converter working the way it should, or send out a replacement free of charge.

Works as expected as a source for input to your sub amp from rear speakers. Only draw back is the very short length of wire requires you to splice in enough to reach the distance between the two rear speakers. Manufacturer could easily add in 2 more feet for pennies!

Pros: Works as expected.

Cons: Not enough wire.

Not For Home Use

MM from denver, CO on 2/10/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought two to convert speaker-level signals for self-powered speakers from budget home receiver that has no line-level outs for those speakers. Even w/everything cranked up full got only barely audible, highly distorted signal from both. Maybe converters designed for DC car audio operation only.

Pros: Seems well-made

Cons: Though they are advertised as primarily intended for car audio & they may work under some home AC circumstances, it would be helpful to add a disclaimer about this to the original product promo.

This LOC works exactly the way that it should! The factory head unit in the '12 Civic doesn't have RCA pre-outs, so this was my best option for now. As you could guess, it's incredibly easy to install. Once installed, and if done right, you'll never have to worry about it, in any fashion, ever again.

I love this little thing, it's so simple and easy to understand and it's a perfect must-have for people who need to hook up their subwoofer to a stock radio, along with many other uses! Hooked it up to my '12 Civic stock premium radio, worked out great.

Pros: Simple and has strong wires, cheap

Cons: A little heavy and big, not enough to bother me though.

Not bad

Rick from Rosamond, CA on 1/9/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Does what it's advertised to do. Could use longer and a thicker gauge wire though. I installed it in the truck of the car instead of behind the head unit so that left mounting options limited because of the lack of wire length. While I did order extra speaker wire, I ordered 14 gauge wire and this has 16 or 18 gauge wire. Also, the instructions state to turn the gain settings down and adjust up as needed. With the gain all the way down, the sub was barely noticeable. I ended up turning the gains all the way up just to get descent sound out of the amp (M-1500) and sub (B-17) combo.

Pros: Good adapter, does what it's advertised to do.

Cons: Wire length could be longer, wire gauge could be bigger

A decent alternative for stock radio users.

Floyd from NY on 5/8/2012

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this so that I could run my subwoofer without having to upgrade my head unit in the car. (No RCA outs on factory radio). Overall the unit is solid and performs as described. Thi stook me about an hour to setup and install. Unit came with easy to read instructions for wiring it. Aalso it has adjustable level control for left and right outputs to amp.

Pros: Easy to install, does an ok job of converting your rear speaker wire signal to an RCA for hooking up to an amp.

Cons: The adjustment pots on the converter do not have a wide clear range. Meaning the low to high transition is either high or low.. No nice midway setting. Also the signal for the unit gets distorted rather esily at high output levels. So you're kinda forced to keep them at mid way for a clean signal. But if you do not want to repalce a factory head unit, and still want to use your amp/sub combo this will work....

I bought this to go with my factory system. I was adding in a JL audio 10" sub and amp and this product performed as advertised, but the sound quality was terrible. I ended up replacing this with the Audio Control LC2i and now my system sounds amazing. The bass response from this product is muddled and flat and sound enthusists should look elsewhere. This price may sound enticing, but you're getting what you pay for. Don't let this limit your system.

This product worked very well to tap into my stock Ram system. By using the speakers with the most bass (front for me) I have excellent bass from low to high volume with no loss of bass. The box was small enough to tuck under my front sill/trim panel, and is easy to adjust output level with a tiny screwdriver. Highly recommended if you want to create a sleeper system that looks stock.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used one of these to add a subwoofer to my new Ford Shaker 500 factory system. I tapped into the rear speakers, and it did work. I used an amp/sub that I had in another car, and they hit much harder in my old car (same car, only older). I learned that the Shaker system attenuates the bass as you turn up the volume to protect the cheap factory speakers (which I had already replaced with Polks). The bottom line is that the Scosche LOC works, but it comes down to garbage in=garbage out. I returned the Scosche and installed the MTX reQ. What a difference. My sub now hits like it used to when hooked up to a high end deck with dedicated preamp outputs. For all the time and money you spend adding to your system, this is not the place to try to save a few bucks. Get the reQ.

More details on the Scosche LOC80

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Scosche Car Stereo Speaker Level Converter (LOC-80) is a non-active, "passive" device that allows any car stereo to be connected to an amplifier or EQ booster. This is accomplished by converting the speaker high-level outputs an the car stereo into low-level RCA jacks by electronically converting the signal as it is passed through the Scosche LOC-80.

Installation: You can use the Scosche LOC-80 whenever you wish to add an amplifier or EQ booster to a car stereo that is not equipped with RCA (low-level) outputs. By simply connecting the speaker inputs of the LOC-80 to the speaker outputs of the car stereo, you can now add an amplifier or EQ booster to your vehicle's audio system.

  • Speaker Inputs: The attached speaker level input wires are 4-3/4" long. Connect the left (+) speaker wire of your car stereo to the white wire of the LOC-80 and connect the left (-) speaker wire to the white/black wire of the LOC-80. Then connect the right (+) speaker wire to the gray wire of the LOC-80 and connect the right (-) speaker wire to the gray/black wire of the LOC-80.
  • RCA Outputs: Connect the RCA output jacks of the LOC-80 to the RCA inputs of your amplifier or EQ booster (Red = Right, White = Left).

Note: Double check all connections and test the sound system. The wiring colors of the LOC-80 may be different from the wiring colors found on your car stereo.

Output Level Adjustment: The Scosche Car Stereo Speaker Level Converter is equipped with output level controls that can be adjusted for proper sound level matching. This done by inserting a small flat-blade or phillips-head screwdriver into the gain adjustment holes, located on top of the LOC-80. by turning clockwise, the gain for that individual channel, or the amount of sound allowed to pass through the LOC-80 is increased. By turning counterclockwise, the gain for that individual channels is decreased. If you feel that after increasing the volume of your stereo, the sound is too quiet, then equally increase both the left and right gains of the LOC-80until the sound level is adequate. If the sound level is too loud with only a slight increase in stereo volume, or distortion (poor sound quality) is noticeable, then equally decrease the gains of the LOC-80.

A
If your receiver is a fairly recent one you should be able to accomplish Bluetooth pairing between it and your Bluetooth speakers without any physical wire connection. Your receiver owner's manual might be a help with this. I got the unit you're asking about to try a kind of way-out scheme of adding inputs to an old receiver. This little adapter is set up electronically for CAR stereo DC power (not made real clear by Crutchfield) and would not work with indoor AC equipment.

[ Brent  Jun 07, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
We do not recommend using a line output converter to connect a powered sound bar to the amplified outputs of a home theater receiver. Powered sound bars are designed to be connected directly to the audio output of your TV or external video source(s). They have built-in amplification so, they do not need to be connected to a receiver/amplifier like a passive (non-powered) speaker. I hope that helps.

[ Game  Jul 17, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Since the line output converter is designed to receive both a left and a right signal, I would advise against connecting it that way. Also, if you are planning to add a full-range amp to the system, getting a signal from only the sub will limit the frequencies you are able to send the new amplifier. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

I'm likely going to wire this to the rear speakers to drive a mono-sub amplifier, and would like to have both channels contribute (so if the bass is in the right channel, I don't want to wire the sub to the left channel and miss out). Does this converter have diodes on the channels so if I was to use a splitter off the output they wouldn't cause interference with each other? Hopefully this is an understandable scenario.

The wireless device that you would normally attach the the speaker output on the Stereo for the woofer will not function, and I believe it is because the output AMPS from the stereo is to much and keeps tripping a "breaker" in the wireless device. So, I am looking for something that will downgrade the Stereo output from AMP'ed to normal. Is this the product I could use between the Stereo out put and wireless device?

It depends on the output of the subwoofer line into the wireless sender. The product overview says it can handle 80-Watts per channel. There are other, more expensive options available that can handle higher inputs. The AudioControl LC2i can handle 400-Watts RMS input.

I don't think so. This is not a wireless device of any kind. It's a line output convertor for car audio, to add RCA outputs to line-level audio signal (for adding amplifiers, etc.).

I have a 2005 Ford Fusion with the 6cd changer, I'm just curious where the rear speakers wire are, so I can connect them from the trunk and save me the trouble of having to connect it to the stock radio?

For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and should be able to give you the details.
