JL Audio FIX
Aug 02, 2016

Miramar, FL — July 5, 2016 — JL Audio, known for producing some of the finest audio systems in the mobile, marine, powersports, and home audio markets, has announced the availability of the FIX™ 86 OEM Integration Digital Signal Processor (DSP), that allows customers to upgrade factory-supplied auto sound systems without switching out the factory radio. FIX™ 86joins the previously introduced model FIX™ 82 introduced late in 2015.


While the previously released FiX™ 82 is a 2-channel processor, the new FiX™ 86 is designed around a 4.1 channel input/output architecture, fully preserving the factory fader's functionality.

FIX™ 86 offers powerful correction capabilities, including automatic level adjustment, delay compensation, summing and equalization correction. It accepts line level or speaker level signals up to 30 volts into eight inputs and it can independently process a three-way front set of signals and a two-way rear set, outputting clean, corrected front, rear and non-fading subwoofer outputs. The only equipment required for setup is a calibration track played through the audio system. With the press of a button, in about 30 seconds, clean front, rear and subwoofer audio signals are generated for connection to aftermarket electronics.

An optional DRC-200 Digital Remote Controller can be added to the FiX™ 86, providing Master Volume, Subwoofer Level and mode selection functions.

JL Audio VP-Marketing, Manville Smith said: "The FiX™ processors offer unmatched processing performance when working with OEM audio signals. The new FiX™ 86 adds four-channel capability within one chassis and will be ideal for a huge number of OEM integration applications."

About three years ago I took my car to "Good" Vibrations to get a system installed by their "certified" technicians. My cost with all my purchases + installation was a little over a thousand dollars. When I got in my car after they were done, I turned the system on but to my disappointment, there was a god awful wining sound coming from all of my speakers, so I unhooked my amp and hooked it back up to see if maybe it was just a bad connection but the interference persisted. When I took it back to "good" vibrations to have them fix it, they informed me that I voided my warranty because I unhooked my amp so they wouldn't do anything to fix THEIR mistake!! But they also told me that it's really not that bad, cause you can't hear the wining sound if you just turn the music up.....WOW is all i could say. So 3 years of boycotting car audio installation businesses, I broke down and decided to take it into Pro Auto to at least have it diagnosed. They got me in the same day and in less than an hour, Joe Anderson not only told me what the problem was, but he fixed it... For the low price of $30!!!! Im thinking about having some bumper stickers made that say No Good Vibrations!!!! Thanks Pro Auto!!!! And thanks Joe Anderson!!!
