    Will a dry EQ solve my problems?

    So I currently have a garbage Alpine HU (CDE-121), but am not in a position where I can outright replace it. My only issue with the unit is the lack of a digital EQ, and as a result of this, a total lack of mids. Would running a dry eq be a good idea, as I don't really want to replace the deck? If so, any recommendations?

    word play aside... I've never heard anyone use the term, "dry EQ"?
    If you're gonna spend the money for a solid EQ, why not just use that towards a new HU that you don't hate?

    Re: Will a dry EQ solve my problems?

    This assumes you have an external amp for the speakers. If the speakers are powered by the HU an external EQ won't work.

    I've used that Clarion before, it's ok.

    Note that an EQ is fixing poor speaker installation/choices.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Thanks for the input, I just ended up swapping out the head unit. Got a Pioneer DEH-3200UB in there, tuning it up now.
