Post List of Amplifiers with speaker level inputs

I have often observed a common query on amplifiers which accept speakers level inputs & dont necessary need pre-outs from head unit.

This is often needed by people who want to reatin their stock company fitted HU which often doesnt have pre-outs. So this thread can be used as a ready reckoner for all such people.

So all those who are aware of such amps & also conversion devices (which convert speaker output to pre-out), please put the names of all such devices.

We will keep adding them into this post.

Thank you for your anticipated co-operation

nope, this list was taken from the pioneer sg site, since most of the grey market stuff seems to be bought from there only. anyway, the indian pioneer range is included in this selection

Today many if not most amps have speaker level inputs. One reason I have qualified many of my past statements using this phrase is becuase I am old school when amps usually did NOT have speaker level inputs and I wanted Newbies to know that this is one feature they need to look for if they need it (upgrading OEM systems while retaining the OEM HU for example).

The GTO75.2, GTO75.4 and GTO755.6 amplifiers are equipped with speaker-level
inputs that allow you to add an amplifier to head units that do not have RCA line
outputs.
