I've always had good luck with the Rockford Fosgate LOC, I've used two on new Fords and one on a newer Chevy. I don't like the ones with pots on them, didn't want to have to deal with them. Every time I've used the Rockford ones, I was able to find where the hu distorted at. Not saying, that LOCs are any substitute for a good hu, but I've had good luck with those.

The ones I've used are the newer ones with the fixed output.

Intresting! I have been looking at those.. i might buy HLC-4 version and try. costs about $44 here

but there is no remote out on them.

I've only used the two channels, but I'm sure there won't be a difference. What kind brand vehicle are you putting it in?

Volvo S40 2006

I have a clean signal when i hook up the test leads on the speaker cables.
DD-1 shows distortion about 80% of MAX.
My stereo display shows horizontal bars and not numbers.
So i have a reference at 4 bars before the text "MAX" :)

but when i use any LOC the distortion light is light up nearly the whole time.
But when i listen to music it doesnt sound crap, dirty at all. Tried all kind of music at
different levels.

I've had that happen once on an install where someone bought a crappy LOC (people buy whatever and then come to me to install it). Couldn't ever get the thing to work right, Idk if it's anything to do with them being adjustable, but I can only get the fixed output ones to work.

Ok, it is wurth a shot! :)
I can get remote via my Rockford Fosgate P1000X1 amp.. it has built in highlevel input on RCA so you must hook the speaker cables on the
RFI2SW adapter cable. Then when the amp sense the signal the remote can be used as remote out for other amps.
Maybe that is an option for me?
And buy the fixed 2ch for my fronts.

I have only adjustable ones. Maybe there is something with that.. if you say you have only had good results on the fixed ones.

If I understand what you saying then yeah it will work. It may just be a coincidence that the fixed ones have worked for me or maybe since they're Rockford Fosgate they are good quality. I don't really know, maybe someone else who knows a little more than I will chime in, but I think it would be worth a shot at least.

Got some major big news!

Went out to my car today and did some testing and stuff for 3 hours.
Started from scratch and realised that i had did something from my other testday.

The only thing i found was that my amp didnt like 1khz 0dB when i tested on the speaker outputs, distortion led was on the whole time.
So track 4 -5dB did the trick. No distortion what so ever.

Clean signal the whole way from stereo to speaker outputs.
Also adjusted crossover and PEQ.

Dont know what i did wrong the first time.. but something.
Im so happy now! Sounds very good! If i compare to my previous setup.

Sorry for my english.
