    Worth buying a seperate EQ or getting a better deck?

    So i use this pioneer deck http://www.circuitcity.com/ccd/produ...UseBVCookie=No and i dont really like the EQ on it. You cant just raise the bass on the subs, you have to raise it on the speakers to, and that distorts my speakers. So im wondering if its worth it to fork out some more money on a better deck, or just buy a seperate EQ?

    Also, there is no high pass filter.

    Well, it depends on how indepth you wanna get. If you just want seperate sub control and a high pass filter, than just buy a higher end pioneer deck. If you wanna go into a lot more control than go to a seperate eq. My suggestion is if you are just the standard car audio customer, than go into a better deck and call it a day. If you are a more serious enthusiest than go into a seperate EQ system

    Yes! Just get a higher end deck with hpf, lpf, ect... sub control and you should be set.

    Re: Worth buying a seperate EQ or getting a better deck?

    The 3800 is not one of Pioneer's better decks. I would say step up to a 6800 or 7800 and you'll have a much better sound and control. If you find yourself needing more control than that then you can always go for a seperate EQ down the road. Personally, I would not invest a bunch of money into and EQ and run it with a 3800. That would be like running high end speakers with a POS amp.



    Source Unit: Pioneer P9 combo
    Tweeters: CDT DRT-25 Silk
    Mids: CDT ES-5 (5.25")
    Midbass: CDT M6 (6.5")
    Subs: Pioneer TS-W12PRS
    Mid & Tweet amp: Pioneer PRS-X340
    Midbass Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
    Sub Amp: Pioneer PRS-X720
