I have a recently installed DEH-80prs and I also have an older 7 band paragraphic eq lying around. I had planned on installing it, but elected not to initially. I have begun the process of fine tuning the 80prs and I think this is going to be more time consuming than I had even anticipated.
It seems that really finely mastered CD's sound AMAZING with minimal adjustments but any of the Hip-Hop/Rap music with mid to terrible mastering takes a hard cut and sounds the exact opposite of amazing.
I had, in the past, run the EQ to adjust as needed for the application but, not sure if it'd be a waste to run that in conjunction with this particular HU given it's own EQ and it's SQ pedigree.
Either way, I'm going to spend a few more weeks tweaking this thing before I make any decisions on it.
Just curious if anyone else had done this yet and what their results may have been.
