Product Information

The LC8i is a highly flexible eight-channel signal processor with active input circuitry that accepts speaker-level inputs, of up to 400 watts per channel, from factory-installed source units or amplifiers. It converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals that can then be directed to aftermarket processors and/or amplifiers. This means users will enjoy maximum sound quality while maintaining the use of factory volume and steering wheel controls.

Designed for maximum flexibility, the LC8i is equipped with an auxiliary input that allows the simple addition of secondary source units like iPods and satellite radio tuners. By tapping the dash control knob, a user can switch back and forth between the main speaker-level inputs and the auxiliary input. Additionally, the multi-function dash knob provides both volume control of the Auxiliary input and level adjustments for the subwoofer output.

The LC8i uses proven OEM integration technology derived from AudioControl’s highly popular LC6i, LC7i, and The Epicenter® Plus signal processors. The speaker-level inputs accept high wattage signals (up to 400 watts per channel), either full range or crossed over, and converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals. Signals from factory radios with built-in crossovers can be summed and combined internally to provide a full-range preamp signal. Customers wanting to offer sound quality that is clearly better than OEM systems can also easily add one of AudioControl’s many crossovers or equalizers after the LC8i, providing even greater control over factory signals.


  • Eight input and output channels – will accept 400-watt signals per channel
  • Auxiliary input for easy interfacing of iPods or other portable audio devices
  • Multi-function dash control (included) allows for Source Selection, Auxiliary Input Volume plus Subwoofer Level Control
  • Internal channel summing
  • Selectable GTO™ Signal-sensing Turn-on Circuit

Add amps to your factory system and play music from your phone

AudioControl's LC8i 8-channel line output converter (LOC) allows you to add aftermarket amps, speakers, and subs to your car's factory radio, so you can enjoy better and more powerful sound without losing climate controls, voice-activated functions, or other built-in factory features. The LC8i accepts speaker-level signals, so you can use it with just about any setup, even high-powered amplified systems.

Now you can plug your music into the system

The LC8i features RCA auxiliary inputs, with independent volume control, so you can play music through the system from whatever portable source you own via its headphone jack and an adapter cable (not included).


The LC8i sums its input signals together, even if they've been crossed over for tweeters, mids, and subs by the factory system. That way, you can count on a strong, smooth, full-range signal for your processors and amps. The LC8i features eight RCA preamp outputs that'll handle a 4-way system using tweeters, mid-high speakers, mid-low drivers, and subwoofers.

Level-matching with an LED indicator

AudioControl makes it easy: set your factory stereo to about 3/4 maximum volume, turn the output level control of the LC8i until the "Maximized" light begins to flicker, then adjust the gain controls on your amps and you're done. You've level-matched the output of your receiver to the amplifier's input, so you can count on getting maximum performance and minimum noise from your system.


The included dash-mounted wired remote allows you to adjust the volume of the auxiliary channel and bass while you're on the go. The speaker-level inputs sense incoming signals and turn on the LC8i, while a built-in 12-volt trigger turns on your amps as well. If your factory system only has channels for highs, mids, and lows, for example, AutoMode™ will create the output you can use for your subwoofers.
