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".


DQ-61 - 6 channel line out converter

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 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.


Key Features:

Signal Delay:

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.

AccuBASS:

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.

Speaker Level Inputs with Selectable Summing:

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.

Equalization for Maximum Control 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.

Excellant Product

I bought this to sum all of the signals from different speakers so I could keep the factory deck in my 4th Gen Dodge truck. Not only does it sum all the signals, it also had time correction for front speaker image staging which works great, but it also has time correction to delay the front stage so that the subwoofer, that is normally placed behind you, sounds like it is actually in front of you. I was skeptical when I read this, but it works! Makes the front sound stage sound awesome. The AccuBass function that restores bass as you turn up the volume, doesn't really work in the Dodge. Maybe Dodge didn't engineer the radio so that it turn the bass down as you turn the volume up. There is an equalizer for front, rear, and sub channel with eight frequencies for each channel. A little turn of the knob goes a long way to effect tone. Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a summing device. Great product, very versatile, and will give you a great front stage image! Buy it, you won't regret it!
