Too far - I'm about 35 mi East of Pittsburgh.

I checked into it for you with JL Audio - they state even though they look the same, the internal circuit board is different & one will not work for the other...

Hi Jay.
The HD-RLC and the RBC-1 are totally different. The phone cord is the same. But internally they are not. Inside the plastic box there is a small circuit board.

Subject: Need Info/Clarification on Amp Accessory Please


I was wondering if the JL Audio HD-RLC (Remote Level Control) #98118 can be used with the JL Audio 500/1v2 or JX500/1 as the Remote Bass Control?

I know the 500slash series amps claim that they need the RBC-1 (Remote Bass Control) unit, but the HD-RLC & RBC-1 look exactly alike - all they are is a phone cord with a rotary knob.

Let me know...
