Re: Passive car eq

Ok so when you say vocals are you having a problem with hearing them or that they are muffled. If so I will suggest you change the speakers first, I see by your post you have aquired some infinity's is that just one pair for 2? You may not need thet EQ at all since your headunit does the same basic functions already

Re: Passive car eq

Then I believe you are going the right route, if I still doens't sound right, try adding some foam baffles behind the speakers.

Re: Passive car eq

parts express online, but most local car audio shops would probably have them

And at this point after carefully looking at the eq I don't think it will help me as I give up all the controls on my head unit so I would actually lose a lot of control over the sub so for now it's just the head unit now if they made one that just equalized the signal it would work kinda like in the old days where u used a tape monitor loop but thanks for the help and I may take a second look at the eq suggested again thanks big al

Re: Passive car eq

I'm glad that you've got things up and running and like how it sounds. Good luck with your search for the perfect sound.

Why can't they make a eq that just adjust the sound in how ever many bands it says without spitting it into sep channels like the old radio shack home eq that went through the tape monitor loop that would b perfect if they could but I doubt that anyone does

Can you clarify what you mean?




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.
