The LGD creates tremendous opportunities for 12-volt retailers by solving a common interface issue in aftermarket installations
Seattle, WA, October 8th, 2019 – AudioControl (audiocontrol.com) makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets has announced two new Load Generating Devices (LGD’s) that enable technicians to add aftermarket audio components to a wide range of newer vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Jeep and Maserati, as well as a wide range of post 2005 vehicles with both standard and premium factory sound systems.
Two New LGD Models
Most new vehicles use a class D amplifier platform in their factory sound systems. These factory amplifiers can become unstable when they are connected to aftermarket equipment, causing system noise and overall compatibility issues. In order to maximize the upgrade opportunity for 12-volt retailers, AudioControl engineers created the LGD series of solutions, which seamlessly interfaces these newer OEM systems with aftermarket amplifiers. The AudioControl AC-LGD20 was designed specifically for Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Maserati audio systems without an amplifier. The AC-LGD60 provides interface capability for these same vehicles that feature audio systems with an amplifier.
“The new LGD’s open up significant opportunities for our dealer base, enabling them to effortlessly deliver the audio performance their customers demand in these late model vehicles,” stated Chris Bennett, National Sales Director – Mobile at AudioControl.
The Ultimate Upgrade Solution with Two New 5-Channel Amplifiers
AudioControl has also introduced two new 5-channel amplifiers, both offering 125 watts into 4-channels RMS at 4-Ohm (200watts RMS X4 at 2-Ohm) and 500 watts into 1-channel at 2-Ohm along with eight speaker level inputs with selectable summing capability. The D-5.1300 delivers onboard DSP control of all amplified outputs and a pair of low-level outputs as well. The DSP interface is managed by the highly intuitive DM Smart App designed for all of AudioControl’s DSP amplifiers and processors. The LC-5.1300 offers the same outstanding specs and performance without the DSP features. These new models are schedule to become available at the end of Q4, 2019.
