I recently installed a Kenwood KDC-X889 (Saturday to be exact) and was wondering about the EQ settings and so forth. Basically I want to know what a good range is to set them at. Also, Where should I set my Sub-sonic filter on my amp (adjustable from 15-35hz) All equiptment is listed in my sig. if anymore info is needed.

eq settings is all up to you. how many bands does that HU have? i mean if you feel that some frequency ranges aren't playing loud enough. lets for example 5khz isn't playing loud enough. go to 5khz and bump up the eq a bit. if lets say your tweets are very sibilant (which is between roughly 5-10khz) then tone down that area a bit. EQ settings is all up to you.

It has 4 bands. I am not sure which 1 of the 4 adjusts what. I may mess with it later and see what I can come up with. Any other thoughts? Thanks.

what kind of eq? PEQ? or just a graphic equalizer?

Not sure, I don't have the manual with me (I am at work). I will get some more info on it in a little while.

The EQ in the eXcelon KDC-X889 is a 4 band PEG with each band having the following possible center frequencies:
Band 1: 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 160Hz, or 200Hz
Band 2: 250Hz, 315Hz, 400Hz, 500Hz, 630Hz, 800Hz, or 1kHz
Band 3: 1.25kHz, 1.6kHz, 2kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.15kHz, or 4kHz
Band 4: 5kHz, 6.3kHz, 8kHz, 10kHz, 12.5kHz, or 16kHz

My first post:)

Set subsonic at around 20 or 25hz...depends how low your subs go.

I messed around with it a bit last night. Got it to where I like the sound of everything. I think I may have blown one of my Boston mids in the process though. Time for some new ones.

Great job on your first post having absolutely nothing to do with the question regarding the EQ (in a head unit) that was originally asked!

But aside from that, :bigwave: Welcome to the forum :laugh:

Hey, thanks for the advice guys. The Kenwoods have TOOOOOOO many adjustments and ****. One of these days I will get evreything set where it needs to be, but it is good for now. The sound quality is amazing.
