For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning auto sound 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 system's performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act as they do), auto sound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products "make a good stereo sound better".
The environment of today's automobiles present challenges for the installation of a performance car audio system when matched to a factory source unit. Less than ideal speaker locations coupled with an acoustically unfriendly environment can compromise the experience. Fortunately for audio enthusiasts, the new AudioControl DQ-61 delivers the processing power necessary to maximize the audio experience.
AudioControl engineers designed the DQ-61 to be an extraordinary processor, so subsequently it is equipped with a number of installer-friendly features that simplify the OEM connection and calibration process.
User-friendly Signal Delay controls allow the listeners the ability to align themselves between the left and right speakers plus seamlessly blend in the subwoofer to the listening environment. Discrete equalization controls provide listeners with powerful processing to properly "tune" their audio systems and enjoy the truly amazing sound.
Designed for maximum sound quality and enhanced audio performance, the DQ-61 is the latest AudioControl processor to incorporate AccuBASS™. This patent-pending process automatically corrects for the bass roll-off that is common with many factory-installed audio systems.
Because of speaker placement limitations and the seating positions in a car, it is almost always the case that the driver of the vehicle is in an incorrect acoustic alignment. This exists because the driver is close to the left side speakers and further away from the right side speakers. Thus, the sound from the left side arrives much sooner than the right side. By delaying the appropriate speakers for just a few milliseconds, the DQ-61 is able to allow the signal to arrive at the same time putting the driver in perfect acoustical alignment.
To protect OEM speakers, car manufactures often limit the bass frequencies at higher volumes. AudioControl has developed a patent pending circuit called AccuBASS circuit to compensate for this factory roll-off. The AccuBASS circuit automatically engages at a preset volume level and reverses the factory bass roll-off to give you the music the way the artist intended it to be heard.
The DQ-61 is equipped with six high-impedance speaker level inputs that allow it to accept amplified signals from any factory installed amplifier, even Bose. Unlike an inexpensive passive line output converter, the DQ-61 offers the highest possible sound quality and performance.
Like all of AudioControl's high performance signal processors, the DQ-61 is designed to offer maximum audio performance and control. All six output channels are equipped with highly accurate graphic equalization filters. This equalization allows for the taming of the most demanding car acoustical challenges or correction of factory radio response curves.

Seems expensive till you get it hooked up
I’ve had this for almost a year before I got all the info I needed on my car to hooked it up, but the time alignment feature is exceptional. You won’t realize just how amazing it is till you hear it. Especially if your into electronic music. I never even knew how off my subs were from the midbass until I aligned it. It’s like I’ve never heard these songs before. Accubass feature works excellently.. and shout out to sonic for selling me a different line out for 50 off then letting me return it for this one and giving me another discount.

This device really enhanced the OEM system installed in my 2017 RAM 1500. It is a little pricey, but worth the extra cost....

Buy a Dm-608 or Dm-810 instead.
I purchased this to use in my 21 Silverado and mounted it on the wall behind the back seat. This is a nice piece that does full active integration and works as it should. That being said the Eq is limited by 7 bands. For the front and rear stages the lowest band in the EQ is 125hz and for the sub stage the highest band is 63hz which leaves a rather large gap in your mid base tuning range. Also anytime I needed to make an adjustment I had to pull the seat out. So I up graded to an Audiocontrol Dm-608 which does so much more for not much more money. Completely controlled via a laptop or tablet. With built in cross overs, 30 band Eq. Total control of channel summing, built in RTA and so much more. Spend a few bucks more and make your life much easier.
