Features

Wired Remote Control: Using this wired remote (ACR-1) you can easily adjust the subwoofer output level of select AudioControl amplifiers and processors. The remote is designed to be dash mounted, within reach of the driver; it can be mounted under the dash with the supplied bracket, or the bracket can be removed and the knob and LED can be custom mounted through the dash.

Compatibility: The ACR-1 wired remote control is compatible with the following AudioControl processors and amplifiers.

  • LC2i / LC6i/ LC7i
  • Overdrive Plus
  • Matrix Plus
  • 6XS
  • The Epicenter
  • LC-4.800 / LC-6.1200
  • ACM-1.300

Mounting Options: The dash  control may be mounted under the dash using its own bracket or through a custom hold in the dash. It should be within reach of the driver and in a spot where the LED is plainly visible.

  • Bracket Installation: The dash control mounts with two screws, which attach to the underside of the dashboard. Slide under the dash and place the dash control in its mounting position, mark the two mounting holes, drill pilot holes, and secure with two screws.
  • Custom Installation: For that custom, finished look, the dash control can be flush mounted directly on the dash-board (or anywhere else). Disassemble the dash control from the mounting bracket. Start by pushing the LED from its holder followed by removing the circuit board and rotary control from the bracket. Drill a 9/32" hole in the dashboard for the control along with a 1/8" hole for the lock tab and a 13/54" hold for the LED holder. Reassemble the dash control components on the dashboard.

A
I ordered the Focal Powered Sub that Normally should be Built with a Optional Control for Gain However this Sub does not have the option. Since I will be installing this to my Factory Bose System, I'm Glad that Audio Control's Line Output Does come with that Option. Having this Option allows you to tweak how much added gain from the sub you want or need depending on the music tastes. [ Alphadeer  Nov 19, 2018 ]
A
Because I want to control the bass from the front of my car, instead of the back where my LC7i is located. [ Estina  Oct 05, 2018 ]

A
I had a similar stereo system in the past that I loved, but I regretted not buying the ACR-1 for quick adjustments when changing music genres.

Goes Great With The Audio Controls for LC2i for talioring the bass with this ACR-1 control knob. [ Matthew  Oct 24, 2016 ]
A
I purchased this to remotely adjust my bass level in my Audio Control LC2iB 2-channel line output converter. Some music is heavy in bass and it gets annoying having to adjust the levels back and forth from the box in the trunk, pretty much the same as any other amp bass level remote.

Q
How far can the ACR-1 turn DOWN the volume? Buying to lower bass for 5 year old kids.
[ Joshua  Aug 07, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
I don't think its designed to control the volume just the bass. It has what looks like a phone cord that plugs into it and the other end plugs into the amp.
[ Harold  Aug 08, 2018 ]
A
If turned all the way down the bass will be completely taken out. It does not adjust speaker "volume" it adjust subwoofer bass. IE if you have your car audio system on and your subwoofer turned up, you would simply turn the acr-1 all the way down which would keep the other speakers in the car on at the same level but you would have 0 bass coming out of your sub.
[ Dillian  Aug 08, 2018 ]
Q
Can this be flush mounted? Like a jl audio knob or a PAC knob? Only the knob exposed.
[ A  Jun 10, 2017 ]
6 answers
A
Yes. You can take the knob apart from the bracket that it comes on.
[ Austin Cole  Jun 12, 2017 ]
A
I don't have mine flush, but it is possible to put it behind the lower dash and just have the knob exposed.
[ Kerrick  Jun 12, 2017 ]
A
Yes
[ LEROY L  Jun 10, 2017 ]
A
Yes, I drill a hole and flushed mounted on to my center console. It comes with the bolt and washer to secure tightly. 2015 Tacoma Access Cab
[ Tu  Jun 10, 2017 ]
A
Yes, the ARC-1 can flush mounted. It just requires you to take off the surface mount bracket and drill a hole and install.
[ Brett  Jun 10, 2017 ]
A
Yes, it actually comes with instructions in the box with pictures showing how to.
[ Aaron  Jun 10, 2017 ]
Q
Could i install this to any amp or its has to be specific amp?
[ Omar  Aug 14, 2015 ]
6 answers
A
ANY amp will work as far as I know.
[ JASON  Aug 15, 2015 ]
A
No, this is for controlling the bass level on certain AudioControl units (crossovers, line output converter, OEM integration processors). I am using it with the LC2i Line output converter to control the bass level going from the LC2i to my subwoofer amplifier. In this sense it can be used to control any sub amp, but from the processor itself. If you don't have an AudioControl piece with this function, it will not control the bass level.
[ Juan  Aug 15, 2015 ]
A
Any amp
[ MICHAEL B  Aug 14, 2015 ]
A
Ny amp
[ MICHAEL B  Aug 14, 2015 ]
A
The end is a telephone plug so unless your amp has the same connection then you probably can't use it without cutting and splicing a new connector on.
[ James  Aug 14, 2015 ]
A
I bought my knob to control my epicenter and you can connect an epicenter to any amp
