This package is also available for the same applications but with the AXDSP-L, sold as AXDSPL-HD2. A universal AXDSP-L package, the AXDSPL-HD1, has a water-resistant case and includes a harness with a rubber boot that snaps into the housing, designed for outdoor use. These Axxess packages are in stock and available now under Metra’s Saddle Tramp motorcycle accessories product line.
Bluetooth Input for DSP “Lite”:
Axxess is now shipping the AXDSPL-BT, used for adding a Bluetooth interface input for the AXDSP-L, which allows the user to stream music directly to the interface. This is ideal for use in UTVs or other powersports applications, golf carts or boats that may not have a head unit or room in the dashboard to add one. The AXDSPL-BT utilizes Bluetooth 3.0 technology for audio streaming.
Toslink Accessories for DSP “Lite”:
Optical cables for the AXDSP-L are now available from 1 to 5 meters in length. The AXDSPL-SP is used for adding an optical 2-channel output from the AXDSP-L to deliver a cleaner signal with more noise rejection. This allows installers to utilize a 2-channel Toslink input that is commonly required for certain high-end amplifiers or processors. The optical cable part numbers are AXDSPL-T1 through 5.
Axxess has recently updated all of their part numbers; the AX-DSP-X is now the AXDSP-X and the AX-DSP-LITE is now the AXDSP-L, with kits and harnesses following these same part number updates. Additional product information is available at AxxessInterfaces.com and installers can look for live webinars each month from the Metra YouTube channel to learn more about these products. *See AxxessInterfaces.com for up-to-date, vehicle specific information.
