I ordered this Cadence equalizer on sale because of all the positive reviews I read on this site & others. It does what it's supposed to which is give you immediate & convenient adjustment of your audio system without having to go through the various menus that today's head units make you go through. This equalizer definitely cleaned up & improved my sound & being able to adjust your sub woofer volume so quickly & easily is great. Now for the things that I didn't like about the unit. The volume/fader dials & the sub woofer volume/crossover dials should be separate. If you look at the product pictures the volume/fader button is configured with the volume being the outer/smaller button & the fader being the inner/larger dial. This is somewhat annoying to adjust while driving, also the inner buttons are not clearly marked so it's hard to tell where it's set at without turning it all the way up or all the way down. The sub woofer crossover button does not seem to have much of an effect on the sound so you're better off making that adjustment on your amp. & finally & this is not the fault of the product, the blue back light of the dials are pretty bright & can't be adjusted. That wouldn't bother me if the rest of my dash controls & lights were blue but they're not they're green. I didn't think that I would be bothered by that, I knew the lights were blue when I bought the eq but after I installed it it became very annoying to me. I have a Kenwood HU with full color adjustments so my HU matches my dash lights perfectly. It is very important to me that all the modifications I make look factory & professional & the blue lights are a deal breaker for me. I was going to return the eq but I'll keep it maybe I'll have use for it in the future. In the meantime I ordered an eq made by Soundstorm Labs and that unit can either be lit green or red.
You'd be surprised how hard it is to find a green back lit eq. I still would recommend this eq for anyone looking to improve their sound & spend very little cash to do it. I'll review the Soundstorm S4EQ when I install it & tweak it a little.
