    Which 1/2 equalizer?

    I have 2 of them on hand, and I'm not sure which one is actually better than the other so which one should I use? I have a component set on the front stage, subs, and no rears.

    Phoenix Gold TEQ6
    TEQ6 - Phoenix Gold Tantrum In-Dash Equalizer

    Soundstream BX-4EQ
    BX-4EQ - Soundstream 4 Band Parametric EQ with Bass Processor and Aux Input



    HU: Pioneer AVH-P4200DVD
    EQ: Clarion EQS746
    Front: HAT Imagine l61-2
    Sub: 15" Sundown SA-15
    Amp(High): Sundown SAX-125.2
    Amp(Low): Sundown SAX-1200D

    Even though the SS is a 4 band para, I'd choose the PG one. I know that para eq's are very powerful, but the quality of the PG and its 6 bands would equal out, but win in my book due to the extra control of the 2 extra freqs. It's still hard to say though w/o looking at your freq response to know what would be of more use.

    He already has the 2 mentioned, getting the Clarion wouldn't help any, but to lessen the weight of his wallet. The 7th band over the 6 band PG would make no real benefit.

    And PG and SS have gone down hill while Clarion has not.

    Not that PG model though, and in reality, PG hasn't gone downhill either. They had a rough spell, but the quality of their top line has remained good but for the 1st batch run of the XENON amps. And for their Ryval line, it's a very VERY good entry line with 0 issues.

    Well are you considering that the SS has a bass processor as well? When I made this topic I was trying out the SS, and the PG doesn't really have any options for controlling the bass.
