PAC OEM-2 questions??

Do any of you stereo gurus know the best way to balance a LOC? I have the Pac OEM-2 four channel Line Output Converter installed and I'm having a heck of a time getting the output on all 4 channels balanced. Is there some trick that I can do to get them all to the same output voltage? Also, there seems to be an amount of "hiss" that I'm not over happy about. It's not alternator whine, and it's by no means unbearable, but listening at low levels you can hear this "hissing". Is this just the crappy OEM deck, or is it the LOC doing this? Thanks in advance for the help. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

I'm no stereo guru, but I know that LOC converters will always introduce some noise no matter how good they are.



When we had LOCs in my pontiac, we played with the gains on the LOC and the amps until the noise was minimal.

That's the problem I'm running into I guess. I can't get the gains to balance. Everytime I adjust it, it sounds like one speaker is louder than the other, or one speaker is lower than the rest, etc. I just didn't know if I could match voltage or something. I'll probley just have to keep messing with it till it sounds right. But I don't think I'll get that into it until I get my new amp. I don't want to have to do it twice. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt017' />

[quote name='steves']I dunno.  I shook my head and walked away, and my roommate and our old neighbor did it.[/quote]



lol, I may still try something else though. A guy over at TT actually opened up the deck and soldered RCA's to the internal preamp signal coming form the deck. It appears to have been successful. I may just try it myself. What's the worse that could happen....... I'll need a new deck. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/002.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt018' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt005' />
