    Need some help with this hu and amp ****.

    ok so i have a jensen hu but i also have a zapco digital 4 chan amp i am about to put in for my comps well the amp i have is a zapco dc reference 1000.4 and the amp has onboard

    1 - Output and input Gain

    2 - Input mode: Rt, Lft, or Sum Mono

    3 - Crossover mode: High Pass, Low pass, Band Pass

    4 - Crossover Slope from 6 - 24dB

    5 - Q-Bass Equalization

    6 - Network Node Position

    7 - Time Delay by both time and distance

    8 - 10 bands of Parametric Equalization per Channel


    well my jensen hu doesnt have any good sq control but since this amp has its on dsp on there and eq then shouldnt it not matter what hu i am using is this correct? I mean cause i am using a external processor well the amp is what i mean so once i tunr the amp i am set is this correct or would i still really need a good hu which i do plan on upgrading in about 6 months but dont dis my hu i just want to know if this would work.

    You can get by with it for sure. That is an awsome AMP. When you upgrade your HU you should get even better SQ and will be even more suprised, provided you are running some good quaility speakers.

    thats like putting steel doughnut rims on a lotus elise.

    or having a professional paint ghosted flames on a rusted izuzu tracker.

    amp = good
    headunit = oh my god no

    but, as stated. it will work. the amp might hate you for it. but it will work. i suggest saving up kid. that headunit makes me have nightmares.

    While the thought is most certainly valid you know Prowler has to throw his $0.02 in here...

    Isuzu didn't make the Tracker.
    Mechanically it was a Suzuki but the Tracker started as a Geo offering through Chevy dealers then became a Chevy itself when GM dropped the Geo nameplate in '02.
    The Geo Storm was fitted with an Isuzu drivetrain (same as the last-gen Isuzu Impulse)


    Having said that ~ I had the same initial reaction upon reading this thread....Jensen HU coupled Zapco amplification?!?
