KICKER’s KEYLOC Smart Line-Out Converter is a revolutionary, DSP (digital signal processor)-controlled, line-output converter that automatically detects the frequency response and phase of your factory stereo system and then allows you to integrate it into a more fun, modern entertainment setup! It’s available for an MSRP price of $129.99.
In the pursuit to get the best sound possible from your stereo system that features both factory and aftermarket gear, KEYLOC’s patent-pending KEY™ algorithm automatically detects and analyzes crossovers, EQ, time delay, and all-pass filters present, and then it will level-match the left and right audio channels. Once analyzed, it corrects these various filters to give you the smoothest frequency response possible, giving you a clean, uncolored audio signal for your aftermarket gear.
HEAR IT YOURSELF
To hear what you’ve done, cycle the EQ correction on and off with a single push of the KEYLOC’s “KEY” button – hear the before and after! Additionally, suppose KEYLOC detects any all-pass filters or factory time delay. In that case, you can defeat the correction (from the menu) and keep the imaging of the factory source unit. By keeping the correction filter active, KEYLOC will counteract either of these factory effects, so you can use an external audio processor to dial in a one-seat tune for the ultimate sound experience.
IT’S A FIT!
KICKER’s FIT 2+™ (Fail-safe Integration Technology) gives KEYLOC the most versatile input sensitivity in the car-audio aftermarket. Ranging from 125 mV-10V (low level) with 60-Ohm smart load, or 1V-40V (high level), KEYLOC is prepared to work with nearly every vehicle on the road today.
