    7 band vs 3 band (HU eq) - How important is it for you?

    Leaving aside other factors.. would you pay about 30% more for an almost identical HU from the same manufacturer just because it had a 7 band EQ ??

    Just get the cheaper one, if you don't like the sound and want more EQ options, buy an external EQ.

    The sound is pretty much similar cos they are on the same platform. I prefer cleaner sound and not to mess with the HU settings.

    With the extra 70$ I could get better wires
