What does a LC6i do?
The LC6i converts speaker level inputs from a factory radio or factory amplifier into high-quality pre-amp signals. The addition of internal summing capabilities and improved GTO™ signal-sense turn-on make the LC6i the perfect way to solve your OEM headaches.
What does the AudioControl LC2i do?
The 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.
What is output summing?
The summing function allows you to combine multiple input signals to the main channel output. It is typically most used when connecting to a factory system that has dedicated outputs for just the highs and mids. You can use the summing function to sum those signals to create a full range output.
How do I connect my LC6i?
The LC6i needs to be installed in the signal path between your OEM source unit or factory-installed amplifier(s) and an aftermarket external amplifier and/or processor(s). Locate the speaker wires that are coming from your factory source unit and/or amplifier and connect them to the speaker-level inputs on your LC6i.
Is the LC2i a line driver?
Does the LC2i require power? Yes, the LC2i is an active line output converter and should be connected to the battery for constant 12 V and to your common ground for after market amps and processors.
What is audio summing?
In audio, summing refers to combining two or more signals together. This can be as simple as using a Y cable or as relatively complex as a multi-channel audio mixing board.
What is a summing device?
Summing is simply the process of combining all of a session’s tracks and outputting them to a single stereo source. Before digital, summing was done inside of a console. And when digital recording was developed, many people complained of its inferior summing quality.
Does LC2i need a fuse?
The LC2i requires a +12V in order to run properly. For best results, the +12V should be provided by the battery via direct line or from a power distro-block. The preferred wire gauge for the connection is a 18 AWG, and a 1A fuse is recommended.
What is the AudioControl lc6i?
The LC6i provides the type of clean pre-amp signals installers are familiar with. Those who desire custom control over the sound can easily add one of AudioControl’s many crossovers or equalizers which offer unlimited system design flexibility, clearly different than traditional OEM interfaces.
What is the lc6i line output converter?
The LC6i follows in the steps of the rampantly successful LC8 Eight Channel Line Output Converter, offering all of the same features for 6 channel systems at a reduced price. The LC6i accepts speaker level signals, both crossed-over and full range, and converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals.
Where do I install the lc6i audio cable?
LC6i Audio Wiring The LC6i needs to be installed in the signal path after your factory source unit or amplifier but definitely before your aftermarket amplifi- ers and/or any signal processors.
How do I increase the signal level on the lc6i?
Since the LC6i is a line output converter, you may need to turn up the gains on the LC6i or consider adding a pre-amp line driver like the AudioControl Matrix to increase the signal level to your aftermarket amplifiers.
