Amp Speaker Level Input
Can anyone tell me more about amps for subwoofers that have a speaker level in? Can I just disconnect one of my other speakers and run the input to the amp to power the base, I dont have any unamplified outs.
Radio Shack (or any audio place) has Line Out Converters (LOCs) that take speaker level inputs and convert them to line level. They're about $15 at Radio Shack. Mine seems to work fine.
Really? I thought many amps (at least the ones in Crutchfield) have speaker level inputs. Does the thing from radio shack clean up the signal ?
I feel that it is better to use a converter than to use the high level inputs on an amplifier. Some amps that can do this are not as high of quality so you would be better to use a good quality LOC from Scosche or PAC
If you would rather have an amp with high level or need help finding a LOC, e-mail me -
I deal in Car audio and maybe can find you a good deal. I really like this car mp3 thing and want to help any way I can.
