Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 1-800-123-4567 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

Fully Active, Two-Channel Speaker Level to Line Output Converter with Auto Turn-On


Designed by JL Audio Sr. Engineer Bruce Macmillan, the LoC-22 is an active two-channel processor engineered for applications requiring the attenuation of factory audio signals for use with aftermarket amplifiers and signal processors.

The LoC-22 utilizes a fully regulated, switching MOSFET power supply and an all-analog circuit design to deliver flat frequency response, at any signal level (3 Hz - 32 kHz, +0, -1dB), without altering bass response at high levels, like many passive line output converters do.

Engineered to combat induced cable noise, the LoC-22 features a differential-balanced input architecture making it compatible with virtually any analog audio signal. Capable of accepting up to 40V RMS per channel (equivalent to 400W @ 4 ohms), the LoC-22 easily handles the most powerful factory amplifier outputs. An onboard dual-range input load switch allows compatibility with most factory amplifiers that employ impedance sensing to mute channels.

Ideal for full-range or low-frequency applications, the LoC-22 is equipped with a pair of analog RCA-type, line-level output jacks (up to 8V RMS) to feed audio signals to your aftermarket system. Analog outputs are compatible with most types of aftermarket signal processors or amplifiers. Setting output levels is super simple and easy, thanks to a specially calibrated, onboard clipping indicator that works with test tones or music. The LoC-22 offers two automatic turn-on methods (DC-Offset Sensing or Signal Sensing) and provides a positive 12V turn-on output to activate aftermarket amplifiers or other downstream electronics.

The LoC-22 includes the following features:

  • Fully active, all analog circuit design by Bruce Macmillan, handles powerful factory amplifier outputs, up to 40 volts per channel
  • Differential-balanced input architecture offers noise rejection and compatibility with most analog outputs from OEM source units and amplifiers
  • Dual range input load switch (20 k /Normal, 60 /Low Z, thermally protected) for maximum compatibility with OEM amplifiers
  • One stereo pair of crystal-clear, line-level RCA output jacks (up to 8V RMS)
  • Automatic turn-on via DC-Offset or Signal-Sensing
  • A dedicated 12V remote turn-on output (maximum 100 mA) to activate aftermarket signal processors or amplifiers
  • Onboard LED clipping indicator makes output level setting quick & easy
  • Ultra-compact chassis design fits into just about any installation location!

Technology

Differential-Balanced Inputs

JL Audio's Differential-Balanced Inputs are engineered to combat induced cable noise, which is a common problem in car and marine audio installations. This technology allows for the use of conventional RCA cables, while delivering many of the benefits of a true balanced connection and accepting a wide range of input signal levels.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
