JL AUDIO LOC-22 2-Channel Line Output Converter – #98413
JL AUDIO LOC-22 2-Channel Line Output Converter line output converter can take high-level amplified signals and step them down to the line level needed for your aftermarket amplifier and processor inputs.
The onboard active electronic circuitry makes sure that even the most powerful signal’s fidelity will remain intact with no loss of bass or added distortions — which happens with some passive line output converts.
High power in and outThe LoC-22’s inputs will cleanly accept signals as strong as 40 volts RMS (400 watts to a 4-ohm speaker), so it’ll work in almost any system with or without an amplifier. Automatic turn-on means you won’t have to run a turn-on lead to the fuse box. An output level control lets you dial the 8-volt maximum output down to lower levels when needed.
A clip light tells you when that’s necessary. JL Audio’s LoC-22 is an active 2-channel line output converter designed for applications where attenuation of a high-level factory signal is needed for adding aftermarket amplifiers and signal processors.
It features a fully regulated, switching MOSFET power supply and an all-analog circuit design, able to deliver a flat frequency response at any signal level (3Hz – 32kHz, +0/-1dB), without altering the bass response at high levels, like many passive line output converters do.
Engineered to fight induced cable noise, the LoC-22 features a balanced-differential input design, making it compatible with virtually any analog audio signal. Unlike a conventional unbalanced circuit, where the RCA shield is chassis-grounded, a Differential-Balanced Input circuit measures the center pin of the RCA connector relative to the RCA shield, even when the shield is not connected to ground and the voltages at both conductors are moving relative to ground.
Because both the center conductor and the shield see high impedance to ground at the input, a ground loop cannot be formed, as there is no current flow to induce a voltage as noise. Unlike a fully balanced connection, no special cables are required.
The LoC-22 is capable of accepting up to 40V RMS per channel (equivalent to 400W @ 4 ohms), allowing it to easily handle the most powerful factory amplifier outputs. Ideal for both full-range and low-frequency applications, the LoC-22 is capable of outputting up to 8V RMS on the RCA outputs.
Input Load Switch
An onboard dual-range Input Load switch, with choices of 20 k? (normal input), and 60 ? (Low-Z), allows compatibility with most factory amplifiers that employ impedance sensing circuitry to mute channels when a high-impedance load is detected.
A specially calibrated, onboard LED Clip Indicator, along with the corresponding Output Level adjustment, makes setting the output levels simple and easy, with either music or test tones.
