    Icon32 Equalizer question

    I plan on having 3 amps in my set up, 1 for side doors, 1 for back speakers, and one for my subs. Would it be worth it, or even have a point to have a equalizer for each separate amp or no?

    Re: Equalizer question

    No. Whether graphic or parametric, EQs are meant to be used on the full bandwidth before filtering and crossovers.

    Separate EQs start to make sense for individual left/right adjustment, though.

    Re: Equalizer question

    I was wondering because one amp will be powering my side door componets, another 2 back 6x9s and the 3rd amp is powering my subs. I was curious about it because I was wondering if it's worth it so I could fine tune each type of speaker. The equalizer id get is a 7 band clarion

    Re: Equalizer question

    With that EQ, and most others, what you adjust will be for all speakers. You'd need separate EQs to do what you're after or a different EQ all together that can handle the way you want to run it. I use an AudioControl DQS. Which would do what you're after, minus the xover, in that case the DQXS.

    Re: Equalizer question

    not really necessary for 3, but separate front and rear crossover makes sense since the speakers are vastly different and will sound different.

    an Audio Control EQL would be great for the front and sub, then a separate EQ for the rears. that wouldn't be a dumb idea. the 7 band Clarion are ok. An Alpine ERA-G180 would be a better option overall.



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

    Re: Equalizer question

    if you can get an eq with front/rear/sub outputs....get that.

    otherwise do what I do and run the front/rear off the eq and the sub off the head unit sub outputs. i do it this way so that I can keep the subbass freqs on my mids and highs turned down to where I like (along with xovers) without it effecting my subwoofer's signal...and vice versa.
