It has a built in linedriver so it should boost signal strength the same as any of AC's other line drivers. I have the Overdrive Linedriver and I have never measured the increase in DB but I can tell you the increased signal does add a lot of volume. The only problem is you can never be too sure that you aren't clipping your amp so be careful when using one of these.

The best part about a line driver is that you can actually get 2 or 5 volts to your amp without having to have your HU volume maxed out.

my amps have regulated power supply . JL gives you max output in voltage , all you have to do then is hook up a volt meter where your speaker should be , play a test tone in the proper range , turn up the hu to desired level , then adjust the amp gain to the target voltage . NO amp clipping made for dummys < me > .

^ If you can reach the target voltage out of the amp with your current configuration, a line driver should not increase your SPL.

Your target voltage won't change, it will merely be achieved with less gain on the amp...

you are missing what he said

if your deck gives your amp a 1.5v so the amp works to amp that to a higher # .so if your amp gets a 8v it works less better power to speakers OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT

I don't think so.. He said:

And I advised that if his amp already makes maximum voltage (power) with the current system, it won't make any more with the addition of a line driver.

I have noticed that most decks do not give adequate power to an amp unless the deck volume is set so high that the signal is distorted (this is usually only the case for subwoofers). IMO, a line driver is a good way to ensure you are feeding your amp plenty of clean signal without having to turn the gain up to maximum. This is just my experience. I think a line driver is a good buy if you have some extra cash, but not a necessity for most set-ups especially if you are running a budget.
