    A line driver is used to increase the voltage of the audio input signal being sent from the headunit to the amplifier.

    That's just a fused distrobution block with a voltmeter; used for splitting the power wire for connection to multiple accessories (amplifiers, equalizers, etc etc...anything that can take 12V power input)

    You often DONT NEED a linedriver.

    As a matter of fact, Your equipment (amps et al) may not like the higher input voltage.

    Really? What's wrong w/line drivers? Higher output, less stress on the amps...sounds like a win to me.

    There is such a thing as too much input voltage...

    higer out put eh?

    well, Your wall socket is prolly around 110volts... You can use that as input for Your amplifiers... which prolly dont like much more then 7-8 volts of max input.

    BTW, it's AC as well.
