    Are EQs neccessary

    if you really want to fine tune your system then yes you will want an EQ your hu may have an EQ built in but it will not tune it as good as a dedicated EQ

    I have a Clarion EQ. Its a simple 7 band. Nothing overly fancy. Treats me well though, used it for quite a while, and going in my next setup also.

    the eq built in to my deck does a pretty good job.

    I had an Audio Control EQx as my LOC and it provided an eq/crossover and it definately made a difference to my stock hu. Audio Control makes really nice equipment IMO.

    The headunit EQ usually only controls three bands (frequency ranges, usually "bass", "mid", and "high"), while a dedicated EQ unit will can provide you with many EQ bands.

    Re: Are EQs neccessary

    I'm going to run an EQ for the aux inputs. Par 650 has 3 inputs. so I can switch from HU, to an mp3 player or whatever.

    my HU dosn't have an aux plus I just wanted the EQ anyway. alot cleaner than an RF adapter.
