AudioControl Store

For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning autosound products at our factory located in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. During this period, countless sound-off winning contestants have chosen AudioControl products to give them the competitive edge. "Can you really win without AudioControl", was part of an article written commenting on competition winning systems. Nothing sounds better than an awesome recording played back on a kickbutt system. Unfortunately, the acoustics of your vehicle can take away from your systems performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act like they do), autosound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products "make good stereo sound better".


LC2i - 2 Channel Line Out Converter with Accubass and Subwoofer Control

The AudioControl LC2i, is a compact, two-channel processor with active input circuitry, which allows it to accept speaker-level signals of up to 400 watts per channel from factory-installed source units or amplifiers. It converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals that can then be directed to after-market processors and/or amplifiers. Users can enjoy maximum sound quality while maintaining the use of factory volume and steering wheel controls.

The AudioControl LC2i is also a super low distortion (typically <.01%) 9.5-volt line driver as well as a line converter. You now have sound quality every bit as good as with an after market head unit while keeping the convenience and cosmetic features of the factory installed source unit. In short, the LC2i gives you the brilliant sound quality that AudioControl has been providing for over 33 years. Combine this with the AccuBASS equalization discussed below and you have mind-bending performance from a factory head unit.



Active, High Impedance Inputs

Active, High Impedance Inputs

With AudioControl's Active, High Impedance Inputs you're in a whole different world. AudioControl's input stage results in a ruler-flat frequency response so you get rock solid bass without the signal roll-off you get with those passive LOCs. Passive LOCs have been used for years yet they add distortion, reduce signal and roll off bass. In short... they sound bad!

AccuBASS Bass Compensation





AccuBASS™ Bass Compensation

Most factory speaker systems are not capable of loud, clean bass reproduction. This is why many car manufacturers restrict bass frequencies at higher volumes. AudioControl's AccuBASS Bass Compensation circuit corrects this with a set it and forget it remix circuit.

Line-Out Converter Specifications

Number of Channels
Each channel on an amplifier will power one speaker using a positive and negative cable. There are various types of amplifiers, each designed to power a certain number of speakers. Monoblock amplifiers, also known as single channel, are designed to power one or more subwoofers. These amplifiers often have very high power ratings. On the other hand, multi-channel amplifiers power multiple speakers, usually at lower power ratings. 2-Channel and 4-Channel amplifiers can power car speakers or low powered subwoofers. Occasionally you might see a 5 or 6-channel amplifier that can power speakers and subwoofers at the same time. The most common setup is a monoblock amp to run subwoofers and a 4-channel amp to run door speakers. Check out our Knowledge Base for more information.

Great Product

December 9, 2013

I used this with a stelthmod from JL Audio. The amp and sub set up were nice, but this made it incredible! All the bass that was taken out by the head unit was restored with this. Check Youtube for the step by step setup instructions to get it dialed in, then sit back and enjoy the bass!

The best LOC IMO Period!!

September 17, 2013

There are many LOC's on the market and many different ones depending on your needs but this to me was just all around perfect and the performance IMO is off the charts. I called the company - Audio Control - themselves to ask some questions about the LC2i before buying and there customer service was really good. They were knowledgeable and friendly. My system goes - 2009 Acura TL Base with factory radio, bluetooth, hands free link, 6 dics cd, XM Radio, and USB iPod integration. I installed a 10" Infinity Kappa perfect pushed with a JL Audio HD750/1. The only thing I did was unhook the 8" factory sub and ran the LOC through the factory sub location. This gave me control of the sub through my factory head unit as my radio has controls for the sub alone. I did not have to remove my radio for this install due to the fact that I used the built in remote lead to amp function on the LOC this is one thing that drew me to this particular LOC as I didn't want to run a separate remote wire from my radio or fuse box. I read that this LOC remote wire function gives you the "Subwoofer pop" when first turning on the vehicle but I have NEVER found that to be the case. It is whisper quite at all times with no feedback at startup whatsoever. I have a dedicated power wire running straight from the battery to the LOC and everything else is standard install AMP, Sub etc. The BEST thing about this LOC though is the "AccuBASS processing for correction of bass roll-off" which in my setup works VERY well. It seems to really bring out those low notes that the factory amp tries to roll off and does it seamlessly. I would recommend this LOC to anyone. It has great control at a fair price with easy instal and great features.

P.S. I also installed infinity reference 6.5 all the way around in my Acura TL to replace the factory speaks. They are 2ohm speaks which are the same as factory. This combo with the factory head unit and the sub has been an incredibly affordable alternative to a full system redo and sounds immaculate while keeping all the functionality of the factory system with LOW power drain.

Not too bad

September 17, 2013

Connected it in my 2012 Acura TL with Tech package(ELS system). Works pretty good, needs some time to tweaked for the bass to kick in at the proper time but overall not too bad at all. Recommend.

great for factory upgrade

September 1, 2014

I used this in my wife's 2013 Toyota RAV4 for a 3 channel amp upgrade. It was pretty easy to install and the small size enabled placement behind the dash. I did some research before I hooked this up that made the adjustment settings alot easier. The sound is amazing!!!! I will never use a cheap loc again!!! Audiocontrol is a must have in my installs from now on!!!

Great product for Sub integration into a factory system.

May 29, 2014

AudioControl as always is wonderful. Super easy to adjust, easy to integrate into the stock system, and easy to tune. I would deffenetly recommend for a cheap $20 LOC the build quality and tunability will be worth the money.

Quality, but didn't work in my install

September 9, 2013

Great made product. Factory amp caused an obnoxious amount of distortion through this converter though. Had to ditch it for a new headunit.

June 16, 2015

Hooked it up to the rear speaker wires of my factory stereo,I attach the mains to a clarion 746 eq and the sub channel directly to the PPI i640.5 amp.The sub is a pioneer TSW 261 D4 10 inch.the result is an incredible sounding system,the bass is deep and full.I cannot comment on durability because I am only using it less than a week.

It's clean, clear, and accurate!

January 21, 2016

I have tried many "bass restoration / enhancement" modules and this one by far is the cleanest sounding. It doesn't add rumble and beats where there shouldn't be any, instead it amplifies what is there, completely accurate reproduction. I do recommend buying the dash mounted remote for convenience though. This unit is perfect for adding amps and subs to a factory system.

Great active LOC

March 4, 2016

Installed the LC2 in my 2016 GMC 2500 Crew cab. I had started with a standard LOC that worked great in my other Bose equipped truck. After the Sub and amp installation in the new truck is sounded lousy. The bass response was non existent. Installed the LC2 and the system came Alive !!. Simple installation and set up, works as it should. A very good value for the money.

LC2i

January 20, 2016

Audio Control products are not the easiest products for an rookie to use but all of them are among the very best that I have ever used, With some effort and help from Audio Control you can achieve pro results. The LC2i worked gr8 for me adding a sub to an OEM system.

Why did you choose this?
Sonic Electronix Store
Needed LOC for my 2015 Ford Platinum with Sony Factory Premium sound. This system lowers the bass volume's the louder the volume is turned up. A traditional LOC would not allow for proper tuning, making the subwoofer "muddy". The LC2i corrects this with their "AccuBass", giving me better tuning and up to 9 volts out on RCA for my amp. The bass knob mimics a subwoofer adjustment of an aftermarket stereo allowing me to fine tune my Sundown 10" sub.

best in the market
Aupa S on Oct 29, 2015
AudioControl is the best for sound processing. I've used this brand before and love it. This will be used in a 2010 charger so I don't have to replace the factory head unit.

I only have two speaker wires (Bose sub wiring) running a mono amp and I'm curious if this will work for me. Can I just use the bass outputs and skip the main?
MrSlaybury on Jun 19, 2016
Best Answer: Of course. If it's a mono single it will remain mono single. Works wonders on increasing bass that has systems default bass signal when turned up loud. That's what I used it for and made my system sound amazing
