Product Research


Overview: The AudioControl AC-BT24 lets you add high definition Bluetooth streaming capability along with complete DSP setup and programming of select AudioControl DSP processors.

Compatibility: The AC-BT24 is designed to plug directly into select AudioControl amps and DSP processors that feature an Option Port. These include the DM-608 and DM-810 DSP processors, the DM-RTA and DM-RTA-Pro Test Tool kits, as well as the D-6.1200 and D-4.800 DSP amplifiers.

Bluetooth: Featuring Bluetooth version 4.2, the AC-BT24 allows for high-definition low-latency audio streaming directly into a compatible amplifier or processor from a Bluetooth enabled playback device. The interface supports aptX HD, for 24-bit / 48kHz audio streaming from devices with aptX codec, and features a dual differential class A-B output stage, offering a signal-to-noise ratio of 96dB. The AC-BT24 has a maximum data transfer rate of up to 3 Mbps with typical rates at approximately 1.6 Mbps. Bluetooth range is up to 33 feet.

Note: The AC-BT24 does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone calls.

DSP Programming: The AC-BT24's UART bidirectional interface allows you to setup and configure the DSP in a compatible DM-model processor or amplifier. After downloading the DM Smart DSP app from the App Store or Google Play Store to your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet, simply pair the device to the interface. Once paired, the app will allow complete control of the amp or processor's DSP parameters.

Indicators: Two LED indicators on the top of the Bluetooth interface will light to indicate if the interface is either Streaming audio or in App mode.

How do you go to bed at night knowing you charged a customer $140 for a device which should cost $20 ?

There could be some confusion here, George. This AudioControl AC-BT24 Bluetooth Adapter is a little different than a standard audio Bluetooth Adapter. The AudioControl AC-BT24 lets you add high-definition Bluetooth streaming capability along with complete DSP setup and programming of select AudioControl DSP processors. The AC-BT24 is designed to plug directly into select AudioControl amps and DSP processors that feature an Option Port. This allows you to tweak your AudioControl DSP amp through Bluetooth and handles a lot more information than a standard audio signal. If you simply need to connect audio to any 2-channel line input, I suggest the Metra Helios AS-BTR Bluetooth adapter in the link below.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Will this show music info on screen? (Song title and album art)

No, it is for data communication between the source unit to the dsp.
eric  Nov 12, 2021
No it will not. It will only transmit audio and interface with the audio control software on your phone or IPad
karon  Nov 12, 2021
I've only been able to load amp settings on it via Bluetooth. It does show the device but I'm not able to stream into the amp. I don't have that functionality
reginald  Nov 11, 2021
Yes, the music info will show on your phone screen
sean  Nov 11, 2021
Will this item work with my existing stereo in my 2009 corvette?

This plugs into an aftermarket Audio Control DSP or amplifier with DSP so that you can program or send a signal to the processor/amp. I doubt you can stream from a factory stereo to this. Usually a Bluetooth connection to a stereo streams from a phone or similar.
joseph  Mar 01, 2021
Only if you have an AudioControl digital amplifier
sean  Mar 01, 2021
No, it will not. It's only for AC products
thomas  Mar 01, 2021
Plugs into the option port of some audio control items such as a dm608 or 810. This is not a stand alone product
eric  Mar 01, 2021
It works with the DM-608, DM-810, D-4.800 or D-6.1200 digital signal processor or amplifier... It'll only work in your existing stereo if someone upgraded it to use one of those DSP's or amps.
ryan  Mar 01, 2021
U need the audio control , I use the 800 ones ;)
nadir  Mar 01, 2021
I have a dm-810 already setup and running in my vehicle. Will plugging this in reset my settings in the dm-810?

No, it shouldn't. It just allows you make changes with the Bluetooth app. You can also save your settings in one of the four memory slots via the software. You can also back up your settings as a file on your computer. I'd reccomemd saving all your settings first just as a precaution though. Never hurts to be extra careful.
kole  Oct 09, 2020
The BT24 can be useful in the beginning! But like all toys it wanes!! If your system is running the way you like it well leave it alone! If not, take it to a Professional and have it adjusted in the 4 memory slots to your liking! If you are young and a geek and have plenty of time on hand, by all means buy the BT24 it won't reset the 810 DSP by plugging it in. !! Good luck
steve  Oct 09, 2020
No it will not..
michael  Oct 09, 2020
No it will not! However if your DM 810 does not have the updated firmware (5/20) you will need to update it for this to work, which will cause the DM810 to return to factory settings as this firmware is a total rebuild. What I suggest is taking pictures of your current settings prior to any update.
karon  Oct 09, 2020
No it will not.
aderonke  Oct 09, 2020
No it will not reset your settings. But it will use channels 7-8 as a digital input and you should always save your setting prior to new upgrades.
kenneth  Oct 09, 2020
Yeah it's not that sturdy I can't use mine either. A sundown 4K is a little much for it :)
dylan  Oct 09, 2020
Nope not at all
dylan  Oct 09, 2020
car was changed from acr by my autocorrect in the second sentence, missed that.
jason m  Oct 09, 2020
No. But you have to make sure it doesn't move from speaker vibration. It will give you a static feedback.. I have the same setup. I went back to using my laptop.
