    Line Output Converter, Need to Purchase one

    Hope this is in the right section. So this is my first time having to use a Hi-lo converter, I always just changed out my head units, but in the car I have now 2008 Mazda 6 you can't change the headunit out unless you want to put Metra's ugly *** dash kit in the car. Anyway I need some help.

    I'm going to run currently 1 Polk DXI 104 (possibly 2 later on down the road)
    I'm running the sub with a kenwood KAC 7204, and later on down the road I MAY do a 4 channel with new interior speakers. My question is what brand of LOC to go with? I've heard AudioControl is pretty good, also I know PAC makes a good item and found a PAC SNI-35 on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/140868032686...84.m1423.l2649

    and I've also heard that I may not need to run the LOC if my amp has speaker level inputs. This LOC is all new to me.


    Thanks

    PAC's are ok, I have one in my 66 GTO with the modified headunit, but there are better out there but they can get costly. JL Audio Cleansweep, JBL MS8, Audiocontrol LCQ-1 or LC7i, or Rockford Fosgate 360.1 and .2.

    And yes you could use the hi inputs if the amp has it, but it all depends on if you have a factory amp. It will make it harder. I think the seperate LOC's are better than the hi inputs from amps.



    Current set up: 2010 Buick Enclave, 2 12" MMATS PROCASTS 2.5@35, MMATS D200HC
    Hertz 165XL comps in front door, Alpine 1507 bridged
    Pioneer Z150bt Nav, Audio Technix all around.

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Some LOC's make turn-off thump, especially the cheap ones. Speaker inputs on the amp are the way to go. That Kenwood also has speaker line sensing, which means you don't need a separate remote wire.

    Re: Line Output Converter, Need to Purchase one

    So I've decided just to go and get a audiocontrol lc6i since I'm going to so a 4 channel as well, i guess it wouldn't make since to get 2 pac swi, one for the mono amp and 1 for the 4 channel. I guess with the lc6i I can run 2 amps off of it, thanks for the help
