View Full Version : Best Indash 1/2 din EQ?

09-29-2010, 11:58 PM
I'm thinking about purchasing an indash 1/2 din (5band +) MODERN Eq for my truck. After trying to do some reasearch, I couldn't find too much useful info. I know of the Audiocontrol 4 band and know it is a good unit but i would like a little more control over the whole spectrum. Any suggestions? And not a trunk mount I want indash.

There are a lot of nice indash EQs I have a big collection of old school EQs I hope to ad an old school Kove Audio Aphex processor to my Porsche 928 either this week or next...I'm gonna put up a 1/2 din old school Sherwood 5.1 processor pretty soon...It has a lot of really neat features ...

You know i was kind of hoping you would be the one to chime in and enlighten me. Wish I had the inhouse "Audio Megamart" of sorts to learn from (not bashing...just daydreaming) Whats the age/specs of the Sherwood unit?

I know where I can get a newer model Precision Power indash unit reasonably but how good is this unit? (If they're still good quality merchandise)

I have the clarion EQS746, and it works pretty well for what I want it to do, adjustments are simple and has volume and sub control built in, which i find is a little easier than HU volume and bass knob. Think I only paid 50 or 60 for it, as an added benefit its a line driver

I tried to do some research (while on break @ work ~15mins) and couldn't come up with much info. I do think I would like it but I would be willing to bet i wouldn't be willing to pay what it's worth historically wise. Idk pm me anyway.....


Moar Open-yuns?

This was one of my favorite 1/2 DIN EQ's It is an old school Advent from the 90's ...it has independant front and rear equalization...which is neat in a front stage bi amp setup or front and rear fill...another unique feature is its built in BBE processor that lets you fine tune your sound for even more detail and clarity....It actually looks way better than the pics make it out to be....

That kicker KQ5 is actually a pretty nice model. Allows for adjustable freq.

plus the clipping indicators are pretty sweet :)

Yes i would have to agree that Kicker EQ is more my taste... even though i would love to keep my truck away from Kicker products since most everyone around here is a Kicker fanatic
