About the Kicker 46KiSLOC
High power to line level
Want to amplify a factory system? Kicker's KiSLOC line output converter lets you get your amplifier's input signals from the factory speaker wiring, lowering the amplified speaker-level signals down to the line level the amp needs for its inputs. Gain controls on each channel manage the signal strength so it won't overwhelm your amp's input sensitivity. This converter will work with factory radios with open-circuit protection.

More details on the Kicker 46KiSLOC
Overview: The Kicker KISLOC is a 2-channel, passive converter that allows any car stereo to be connected to an amplifier or processor (sold separately). This is accomplished by "de-amplifying" the radio's high-level speaker outputs into low-level signals that can be passed out of the built-in RCA jacks. The KISLOC is designed to be sonically neutral, delivering a flat frequency response of 20Hz - 20kHz with less than 0.01% THD.
Conversion: The KISLOC can accept speaker-level signals up to 55 watts and has an RCA output level that's adjustable up to 8V.
OEM Compatible: The Kicker KISLOC is compatible with most modern OEM "smart" radios that have open-circuit protection. The KISLOC applies a 60Ω load to the speaker input lines, allowing the factory radio to output audio uninterrupted.
Input Wiring: The attached 7" speaker-level input wires connect to the left and right speaker output wires of your car stereo. The Kicker input wires are as follows:
- White: L+
- White/Black: L-
- Grey: R+
- Grey/Black: R-
- Brown: Input ground (only needed if engine noise is present)
RCA Outputs: Two female RCA output jacks let you run the low-level output signal to the input of your amplifier or processor.
- Red: Right output
- White: Left output
Note: The wiring colors of the KISLOC may be different from the wiring colors found on your car stereo.
Output Level Adjustment: The Kicker 2-channel converter is equipped with output level controls that can be adjusted for proper sound level matching. This done by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver into the gain adjustment holes, located on top of the KISLOC. By turning clockwise, the gain for that individual channel, or the amount of sound allowed to pass through the KISLOC 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 converter until 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 converter.
