Awesome little device.

Works great as a basic LOC. Easy to use and easy to adjust.

VS
It Works. But it arrived broken and can't push low range audio.

Good news. It worked. Now for the bad. I read reviews that the adjuster knob broke after a few uses. My left channel came broken, so I had no way to adjust it. When i installed it the left channel clearly was lower than the right. The other issue is that it seems like it can't push low audio. (I will need to verify this with another LOC, but I have read plenty of forums where people used other LOCs and the same system my car has and they were fine). I had my sub low-pass set at 100Hz when using RCA cables and at 100Hz using the LOC I heard almost no audio. When I turned the low pass to 130-140 Hz, it seemed like all of the bass was coming through just slightly higher than it should.

Within 5 minutes of opening the package i broke the product, i very lightly turned the gain settings with a plastic scredriver and they broke right off inside the device, a little dissapointing.

This converter was just what i needed to complete my system. I thought I was going to have to invest in a whole new head unit, (mine did not have any rca outputs) until i found this handy little guy. Ive had it for about 6 months now and have had no problems.

I had a faulty LOC (Scosche) that was a 4 channel, so I grabbed this one as I only needed the 2 channels. No problems with this one, signal seemed clean, no noise/ground loop that I could detect. It works.
