About the Kicker 46KISLOC2

Get signal and turn-on power for your amp

Want to amplify a factory system? Kicker's KISLOC2 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. In addition, this little device provides the 12 volts your amp will need for its remote turn-on connection. It generates this voltage using the input signals alone, with no external power source necessary. This converter also has built-in load resistors, so it will work with factory radios with open-circuit protection.

Product highlights:

  • 2-channel line output converter
  • 12-volt DC output for amplifier remote turn-on
  • bare speaker wire inputs
    • accepts up to 55 watts RMS per channel
  • applies 60-ohm load to each channel to circumvent open-circuit protection
  • RCA line outputs up to 8 volts RMS
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # 46KISLOC2

What's in the box:

  • Stereo line-output converter (attached 4" bare-ended input wires)

Product Research


Overview: The Kicker KISLOC2 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 KISLOC2 is designed without inductors, allowing it to deliver a flat frequency response of 20Hz - 20kHz at all volume levels.

Conversion: The KISLOC2 can accept speaker-level signals up to 55 watts and has a pair of female RCA jacks that can output an audio signal up to 8V.

OEM Compatible: The Kicker KISLOC2 is compatible with most modern OEM "smart" radios that have open-circuit protection. The KISLOC2 applies a 60Ω load to the speaker input lines, allowing the factory radio to output audio uninterrupted.

Remote Output: The KISLOC2 can provide a 12VDC/100mA remote output signal, for activating outboard amps or processors, from the converted input signal using DC offset. A red LED indicator on the input side of the converter lights when DC offset is active.

Input Wiring: The attached 4" 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-
  • Black: Input ground
  • Blue: Remote turn-on output

Audio Outputs:

  • Red RCA: Right audio output
  • White RCA: Left audio output

Note: A wire legend is provided on the back of the converter. The KISLOC2 wire colors may be different from the wire colors found on your car stereo.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
The stock radio doesn't have a RCA out. This gives me the ability to add a sub box [ Chad S  Dec 03, 2019 ]

2 questions already asked

Will this remove a 20V DC offset from the factory subwoofer output?
[ Robert  Feb 18, 2020 ]
1 answer
I would think it would not. Easiest install point is behind the factory head unit
[ Allissa  Feb 18, 2020 ]
the specs say 55 watts rms per channel, so does that also apply to a 300 watt subwoofer amp?
[ Howbout  Sep 08, 2019 ]
2 answers
Yes 55 watts would be input from the speaker line you are tapping into
[ Allissa  Sep 26, 2019 ]
I believe it means that if your head unit output exceeds 55W RMS then you should get another converter rated for a higher wattage. This converts speaker lines to RCA output to go to your amp which could be any wattage. The input from your stereo can't exceed 55 W RMS though.
