Looking to buy a quality USED dash mounted EQ.
3 or 4 bands is fine. Would like to have subwoofer gain control, subwoofer x-over, front/rear fader, and at least 4 Volt output. Need front, rear, and subwoofer output.
Would prefer a nicer unit like
AUDIOCONTROL
ECLIPSE
ALPINE
KENWOOD
PIONEER
Etc.

I tried the new Clarion unit and the noise was way too much. I know EQ's can add a little noise.

Would prefer a solid brand like Arc, put Alpine, AudioControl, Older Kenwood, or Older Pioneer would be fine.

thanks ,i've ran the clarion pos ,lots of noise ,also the autotek was a bit nicer , now i have arc audio peq ,not even in the same class,mine doesnt have the sub control ,but what this thing will do with my highs is sweet.i'm planning on getting the xover that pairs with the peq soon .then i'll have the sub out controls i need .but the keq would be the ticket for you .

I wish I could afford the Arc units. I have an AudioControl Three2 in one car and it is perfect. I just don't have the money for another. Interestingly I saw the Autotek aka Maxxsonics unit last night. Unless someone has a used quality brand unit, I may just have to go with the Autotek or maybe a Cadence.

I just picked up an Arc Audio KEQ5 per suggestion from mylows10. I could still use one more so if someone has a solid used unit let me know.

Unfortunately the PEQ 7 doesn't have the sub control or sub xover or I would be all over it.
