HOW AN EQUALIZER IS USED
The Sound Storm S4EQ graphic equalizer is a high-Fidelity signal processor/preamplifier that allows you to graphically view and individually control a number of different frequency bands in a stereophonic system. It is intended for use in a car audio system which includes amplifiers in a signal path AFTER the equalizer, and provides front, rear and subwoofer low level outputs via RCA connectors.
Please note that this equalizer contains an internal ON/OFF switch which is activated when the head unit is turned on. For this reason, to use the equalizer, your head unit must have a remote turn on lead.

Ran across this unit which specified it had a variable subwoofer xover from 30Hz to 250Hz. The reviews were good so thought I'd try it out. The xover on this unit works great!! for this price.
I've used a few crossovers in the past and this one I like very much.
As far as the equalizer I cannot comment, since I have not used it, but the pots/controls on this unit are tight and seem to be pretty good quality. I do know that the equalizer controls do Not seem to effect the subwoofer output, so probably only effects the front and rear outputs on this thing.
The subwoofer gain and the master volume gain work great as well.
The unit looks nice too. Plexiglass top looks cool.
Was thinking to purchase an extra one for backup. It's hard to find good equipment, especially when stuff that you like gets discontinued.
They say you get what you pay for, but I think you get a little more than you pay for with this unit.
On to the flaw of this unit:
The 4-band EQ is heavily congested in the lower-mid spectrum, and only gives you one band for high frequencies. That normally wouldn't be so bad, but the top band is 20KHZ which is at the VERY top end of what you can hear. Pair that with the fact that the "mid" band is set at 1khz (too low) and you have a HUUUGE gap in the frequency band that you can do nothing about. I ended up using the mid and high bands from my head unit to give me more control. I find it hilarious that 2 of my 3 bands in my in-dash fit in the hole this unit left. I will try to show how much of a gap this unit has:
Hopefully this will visually show you what I am describing.
Having said all that, I am still extremely happy with this unit. It has boosted the signal, given me greater control, and it even looks very nice. I would recommend this unit to anyone on a budget who really gets into the hobby and wants more stuff to play with, and better sound.
