I just asked this question in a differnt discussions here on caraudio.com

only got one response so far. trying to decide on the cleansweep or the mtx re-q5. anyone use either of them!?
let me know what you think, i want to get mine today or tomrrow but dont know which to get. money isnt the issue, i found both cheap from someone locally so i can get either for just about the same price

i asked crutchfield and they suggested the re-q5, but i havnt seen any reviews for either one of them really. i have a friend with the re-q5 but i dont know how it compares to the cleansweep. anyone know or heard anything that makes one better than the other?!

let me know, i want to get one of these so i can install one in and get my system up an going!

it all depends on what you want the unit to do, you'll never get an answer if you don't know what you want it to do and just want one thing or the other. it's like asking what amp is better and both have the same output just different brands.

The cleansweep only flattens everything out after the source unit. No tunability.

The best way to go in this category is the Fosgate.

I have the Cleansweep and it does turn your factory tuned hu to an aftermarket, but as stated before it has no tunablity. I installed a RE-Q into my brother in-laws SUV because he only wanted to add a sub. I personally think the Cleansweep is a better piece of equipment, however if money is no object then the RF 3sixty.2 is the way to go! I bought my Cleansweep very cheap, that is why I went that route.
