Product Details

12 Volt To 5 Volt Step Down Converter by Axxess®. Use of this converter will prevent turn-on "pop" caused by excess voltage to the amps' sense connection.



  • For use in vehicles with OEM amplifier and aftermarket radios
  • Fixes audible "Pop" when Aftermarket Radio turns on OEM amp
  • 3-Wire hook up drops 12 V turn on signal to 5 V

OEM Ford radios send only 5 V to the stereo amplifier to turn them on, a signal separate from the amp's 12 V supply current. Problem is, the aftermarket radio has 12 V on that line, far more than is necessary. It won't hurt anything, but it often causes an audible "pop" when the radio is turned on. This simple harness drops the 12 V from the radio to 5 V, quieting the "pop". Just connect one wire to the 12 V radio sense line, one to ground, and the last to the amp's sense line.
