Can I convert speaker wires to RCA?
This speaker wire adapter cable allows high level speaker outputs to be connected via RCA phono jacks. Ideal for use with amplifiers or audio receiver that have high level input capability but no speaker wire input connections or the molded RCA plugs are short to allow for easy installation in tight areas.
What is a line level adapter?
A: A line output converter, or LOC for short, converts a speaker-level output signal into an RCA preamp-level signal. This lets you connect the radio to the amplifier. It can also be used to connect a new radio to a car’s factory amp (see below).
Can you put RCA jacks on speaker wire?
RCA Cable Polarity When you’re attaching the speaker wire to RCA plugs, you can connect either the marked or the unmarked side of the wire to the pin, whichever makes sense for you. As long as you do all the wires the same way, they’ll have the same polarity.
Can you splice speaker wire?
There are a couple of ways to splice speaker wires. One way is to twist speaker wires together and use electrical tape. However, tape wears out over time, and the smallest tug on the wires can separate the connection. The better option is an in-line electrical crimp connector (also known as a “butt” connector).
How do you hook up a line out converter?
Use butt connectors (some prefer to solder) and wire crimpers to finalize. Add electrical tape around the connection and proceed until all wires are correctly connected together. Lastly, you will plug in the RCA cables to the line output converter and run and connect the RCA cables to the amplifier.
