Hello all,
My speakers are too bright and are sissing? I'd like to lower the highest options on my equalizer, but I can't seem to get it straight.
Can I edit the EQ's that it comes with, or can I only edit Custom 1 and Custom 2? Either way, I don't seem to have the correct steps down pat.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

It has dual L/R 16 band EQ in Standard or Network mode.

Maybe I should have posted my question differently. Let me try again?
I'm a friggen idiot. I don't even know what a car stereo is? I bought this thing that makes music in my truck, but I don't know how? Maybe I'll ask people on this internet thingy and hopefully someone as stupid as I am can lend me some advice?? Oh, this is only for supersmart audiophiles who laugh at your silly EQ questions? Watch this video that will make no sense to you because you don't even know what network 1 and network 2 mean. Haha! I watched the suggested video and there was about 15 seconds that I understood, but didn't quite grasp it. Thankfully I got an explanation of "It has dual L/R 16 band EQ in Standard or Network mode", so of course my question has been answered! Thanks everyone!

That's a really advanced unit for someone who doesn't know much about car audio
Are you running aftermarket amps and speaker or is the HU just running your stock speakers

Hey, thanks for the response. I'm sorry I went off there, but I've had issues with 'audiophiles' that tend to talk down to people that don't have the latest 5K stylus on their turntables. Yeah, I don't know much about car audio, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't post here, right? I bought the amp because I heard good reviews about it. I have a pickup truck, so I don't have much hardware, but I do have an Alpine amp....not sure of the stats, and I do have a small subwoofer under the rear seats, and I have new Focal speakers in the front.....not sure of the model, but they ran me about 1K? My problem is simply that the highest highs are too high. I'd like to lower the eq at the highest range. There is a way of doing it, and I'm just not sure how. The video is a bit over my head. I was hoping I could just have someone explain the steps. I'm sorry I don't know much about car audio. I apologize for buying a high end unit. Is there a better forum out there for me?

Your saying your highs are " to high" , do you mean harsh, or do you mean they are picking up to much of the higher frequencies? If it's neither then you could try setting your EQ on the 80prs to be flat. Otherwise I would say it's the speakers you got, or your speaker amp settings need to be adjusted physically. Hope this helped somewhat. If you don't know what I mean look on your amp that's powering your speakers and adjust the subsonic and such. If your powering them from your headunit I would suggest trying what I said about using a flat EQ.

I would have had no problem helping you more or even taking a video showing you how to get to your EQ on my 80prs but since you want to be a dick when we are trying to help you why don't you fuck off and take it to a shop.

This guy is obviously a salesman's wet dream. They sold him the most expensive gear they had and sent him on his merry way.

Godspeed Bobo!

I appreciate the lesson in quantum mechanics.
Pretty douchy response. That video visually shows you all the features and what they do.

The video is a bit over my head. I was hoping I could just have someone explain the steps. I'm sorry I don't know much about car audio. I apologize for buying a high end unit. Is there a better forum out there for me?
Dude what the hell ? (????).

If a basic company issued video is over your head then how exactly can you expect someone on a forum to verbally help you ? (you do realize that forum post are basically going to be what's presented in that video but with NO visual help ?).

Not only that you have the nerve to basically say "you guys are meanies is there another forum that's better ?".

You need a reality check

Yes and no. CACO and Diymobileaudio are more technical forums but that will actually be a diservice to the topic creator.

Not only will the terminology be more technical/confusing but they will be way less responsive to "uhh i'm an idiot and don't want to research or learn any of the terminology".

D-bag statements like "thanks for nothing einstein" and "thanks for the science lesson" will get him borderlined banned on either of those 2 forums

I was being sarcastic. Caco is a ghost town.

You can make adjustments to the different crossovers in the network 1, 2, and 3 menu's. Networks are the individual outputs from your headunit going to your different speakers. Usually with a DEH80PRS you'll have a sub, midrange, and tweeter to choose from in your network menu with the midrange broken up into 2 sections (mid low and mid high). You use network 1 to choose which crossover you want to adjust (low, low mid, mid high, and high). Once youve chosen a crossover in network 1, you use networks 2 and 3 make adjustments to the crossover (high/low pass) cut off frequency (the frequency range you want the selected speakers to start and stop playing), slope (how fast the unit filters out the chosen frequency cutoffs), and gain (adjusting the overall gain for the selected network). How you setup your system will depend greatly on the equipment you're running but I'll use my setup as an example to give you an idea.

I have 12" high excursion sub that doesn't like to play over 50 hz so I set my low pass filter on my subwoffer crossover to 50 hz at a 36db slope. My mids don't play much lower than 80hz so I set my mid low crossover at 80hz with a 24db slope. My tweeters play pretty low and start producing good sound around 3k hz. The deh has an option for 3.15khz so I cut my mids off at 3.15k at a 24db slope, meanwhile bringing in my tweeters at 3.15k with a 24db slope.

Once you've found a good setup for your crossovers you can go into graphic equalizer 1, select one of your 2 custom eq's, then go into graphic equalizer 2 and make further specific adjustments.
If you aren't setup in network mode you can still the graphic equalizer option to build your own custom EQ.
For me, my mids and tweets didn't need any further adjustment although my sub needed to be adjusted to limit lower frequencies (below my port tuning). I also needed to limit higher frequencies (my sub starts clipping prematurely at higher frequencies)

There's more to it than this but this should get you what you need to get started.
