In certain luxury vehicles with factory audio upgrades it is important to understand the effect of active noise cancellation (ANC) microphones. For further information on how this may affect the install please contact JL Audio technical support in the U.S on +1 954 443 1100 following prompts for car audio technical support.
Great sound using the OEM source has
never been this easy to achieve! Groundbreaking delay correction makes FiX unique among integration processors, ensuring correct summing and equalization of factory signals.
The FiX 86 is a state-of-the-art digital signal processor engineered to deliver outstanding sound from factory source units, while retaining OEM fader control. Unlike typical OEM interface products, the FiX 86 automatically corrects time-delayed factory outputs prior to signal summing and EQ correction. Calibration takes just a single button press and about 30 seconds to complete, with no special equipment needed.
With a powerful 24-bit DSP processor and quad 1/3 octave equalizers onboard, complex factory signals, up to 3-way front and 2-way rear, are combined and level matched automatically into six, full-range stereo signals: Front (fader-controlled), Rear (fader-controlled) and Subwoofer (non-fading, front+rear summed) outputs. Differential-balanced inputs accept virtually any OEM analog audio signal, from low-voltage, line-level to highpower, amplified speaker-level outputs (up to 30V RMS).
Activation methods include 12-volt or Auto Turn-On (Signal/DC-Offset Sensing) to trigger a dedicated remote turn-on output for aftermarket equipment. An optional DRC-100 or DRC-200 Digital Remote Controller (sold separately) adds Master Volume Control, Subwoofer Level Control and preserves hands-free calling features, all from the driver’s seat.
Achieving great sound from your factory stereo has never been easier, or sounded better… Now with fader retention and subwoofer output!
