    Increasing the voltage pre-out on HU??

    Isn't there some sort of a converter box to increase/decrease the pre-out voltage from a HU?

    Re: Increasing the voltage pre-out on HU??

    Alright.. This thread seems like it's got its answer so I want to add a question..

    Can you measure pre-out voltage with a DMM??? Like would it be a bad idea to stick the leads in there?

    IF not AC or DC?

    DC, touch the ***** with one lead...and the ground piece (surrounding metal) with the other lead...

    thats if you have an RCA cable connected..
