A Cure for "One-Size-Fits-All!"

There’s simply no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” audio system. To enjoy your system to the fullest, it needs to be tuned and tailored to not only your specific tastes, but also to suit the acoustic characteristics of the listening environment. With this in mind, we designed the NVX XEQ7, a 7-Band Stereo Equalizer that allows you to compensate for seven acoustic anomalies unique to the automotive environment. Each frequency band can be boosted or cut by up to 12dB, while a separate subwoofer volume control can boost/cut the subwoofer frequencies by 15dB. In addition to the equalization functions, the XEQ7 also features both RCA and mini-jack auxiliary inputs, allowing you to play audio from an iPod, MP3 player, DVD player, or other device. The front panel includes master volume and fader controls for easy adjustability.

 
 

XEQ7 Features:

  • 7-Band Graphic Equalizer with Dual Aux Input
  • Gold-plated contacts for optimum signal transfer

Equalizer Specifications

Type of Equalizer
This determines the way the equalizer processes the signal from the source unit. A parametric equalizer allows to you adjust the center point of the frequency band you are adjusting as well the bandwidth which can be narrowed or widened. A graphic equalizer has fixed frequency bands and bandwidth and only the frequency bands can be adjusted. A digital equalizer uses a software program to tune your system.
A graphic equalizer typically has more adjustable bands and is less expensive, whereas a parametric will have fewer bands but offer a greater level of control and provide more tuning options. Digital equalizers will tune your system with the most detail and precision but require a computer and are typically a little higher in price.
Graphic
Equalizer Bands
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the receiver has. The better the EQ, the more likely you will be able to "tweak" your sounds to your desire.
7 band
Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
High-pass (HP)
Line Driver
A line driver is a small amplifier used to support the strength of the audio signal coming from the source unit.
No
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
No
Total Number of Inputs
This is the total number of input connections that go into the unit.
2
Total Number of Outputs
This is the total number of output connections that the unit will produce.
3
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

Blue
Signal Boost/Cut
The available signal boost or cut for each of the frequency bands.
12 dB
Max Output Level
The maximum level (in volts) of signal output. A higher level will increase the clarity and boost your signal.
7 volts
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 50,000 Hz
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
.005%
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
100 dB
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
7"
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
1"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.

Replaced my Clarion EQS746 with this.

November 13, 2012

Holy cow. Did not think $60 could go so far in terms of audio improvement. I decided that my Clarion EQS746 had to get replaced due to no front aux in and I went for this unit in its place. Yes, I am going out from my phone headphone jack, but I am thrilled with the performance and I use this for more than just that. Anyhow, well worth the money and a huge upgrade over the Clarion which I used to consider the gold standard for half-din EQ.

Just okay...

May 7, 2014

I was not very fond of this product. It was nice and was easy to install and adjust but it did not last long. While I was sitting in a parking lot listening to my system, and my knee touched it...All I heard was a pop then I was filing an RA claim. I ended up going with a different brand...

Sounds Amazuing

July 28, 2013

I had this eq for two weeks and it sounds awesome. My kenwood HU has a 5 band equalizer but i wanted something a little better. Lets just say i found what i was looking for. My music now has better detail, clarity, and a "drop on a dime" fine tuning when i listen to different genres. The only issue i have is the whine/background noise i get with the engine off and on. Tried changing grounds, rca's, reducing gains, running separate power wire and even ran my NVX rca's over the seats away from all electrical wiring with no success..I called Sonic and NVX to help me with the issue but will be returning it for a replacement. Besides that, it is a must have for someone who is looking for improved sound quality.

Excellent EQ

April 26, 2013

It was unbelievable how good this EQ made my system sound. I have good components and thought it was just the acoustics of the car. The sound was just dull and flat. With this eq my stystem sounds like a high end system. Get this EQ, you won't be disappointed. Much better than the Kenwood or Clarion that I had. Best money I ever spent.

Pretty much DOA

April 1, 2013

I think the line driver went out on the unit; music can be heard through the speakers but it's like less than a whisper in loudness. The volume control knob will only increase static. Wasn't running it more than half volume ever, so the durability will be rated a 3 for now. I'll readjust the rating if I can after the RMA process. Also the supplied wires are a little small, making it difficult to mount somewhere convenient without additional speaker wire.

I will say that while it was working, it worked wonderfully. Installed with a tablet as a replacement head unit.

Woah, I got this as a gift, this thing rocks, control volume as well as sub volume, my amplifier had no means of controlling the incoming volume so i just had to use the tv output which sounded vary lacking in bass so movies and video games sounded bad, i couldn't just plug the games straight through because it would be at a fixed volume and VERY loud. I have it working with and amplifier now and with the volume knob, i can plug in a game console now with the raw audio and i have to say, very pleased, brought a whole new experience.

Great Design, Poor Performance

October 16, 2013

I bought this unit as an EQ and line driver after owning an AudioControl three.1. I liked the design and layout of the EQ and it sounded great. HOWEVER...I only got about 2 weeks out of the first install and after replacing it, the second one died after only 2 days. The unit was accepting input from my head unit at about 75% volume but couldn't handle and both units fried. This is the same setup I was running with the three.1 (which I am still running) and is the same instructions for installation from NVX.

The price point is excellent and the layout/settings are great, but I would NOT recommend this EQ!

CAUSE I NEED IT....
Fionn O h on Jan 18, 2015
I needed to be able to customize the sound on my system a lot more then my radio could do. Since I have a mono amp for my bass and a 4 chan on my highs having the nvx eq will really help me get the most out of my mid lows and highs. I have a pair of powerbass 6x8s in the front and four cadence 6.5 midrange drivers in rear so ill be able to play them much louder using the eq to cut un wanted FZs from getting to them. Plus ill be able to adjust my subwoofer with this wont need to use a bass knob

Hi I have a JVC kd-avx33 head unit.

I dont use the internal amplifier, my speakers (jbl ms-62c and jbl t696) are powered by a jbl gto1004.

I'm looking for those 1/2 din equalizer.
The internal equalizer of the head unit does the job but i'm looking for something more efficient.

Would you suggest me this equalizer i'm not totaly on a budget but i dont want to spend 200 on an equalizer?
dude d on Aug 11, 2014
Best Answer: This equalizer is exactly what you want. It's simple to set up and gets the job done. My only complain would be the knobs, but you get used to them. Don't spend 200 on an eq. The nvx is perfect. Make sure your amplifier is 4 channel so you can use all the frequencies

Does this unit ABSOLUTELY have to battery hardwired, or can it be spliced into head unit 12v battery lead?
Steve C on Oct 4, 2014
Best Answer: It wouldn't ABSOLUTELY have to be wired to battery, but if your 12v lead is too thin it may pop a fuse by running both units on the same lead. Could be unsafe if it's really thin, if it's thick you'll be fine. This equilizer also boosts the signal outputs to the amp, so I would run another lead IMO

In order to use input 1 and 2 on the back i have to access the top of the EQ and flip the switch? If so, i don't understand how both inputs are usable once the unit is installed. I understand there's also an input on the front that is auto. But the rear is not?
jr j on Apr 9, 2015
Best Answer: if your head unit has a ft and rear output connect both of those to the ft and rear inputs on the rear of the eq.then use both outputs on the eq to go too a four channel amp,or two one channel amps.i think the switch is for if you have only one output on your hear unit,use switch to get two outputs off eq.input on ft is for a phone or ipod.it will bypass your head unit .then you can use volume knob on eq for power.i really like mine.works well.use low pass switch on eq to get best responce and sound.i set it to 120hz and system really came to life.get and blow your doors off.good luck!

will a 4 channel amp and a monoblock amp both together work with this? and can you equalize all the channels separate? for instance I don't want my tweeters playing low frequencies and my mids playing high frequencies.
Isaac T on Sep 17, 2014
Best Answer: Well it will let you adjust the frequency for 7 bands I'm running ah 4channel Amp which controls my mids and highs. I'm also running ah 2channel Amp on my subs and it works fine if installed right you will be able to turn whatever frequency dwn or up just depends on what you like!!! Hope this was some help to you!!!!!!

I need the speaker wires for this with the RCA connectors on one end (to plug into unit) and wire leads on the other end to splice into my auto's speaker wires. What would you suggest? Do you carry this product?
Steve C on Nov 12, 2014
Best Answer: Steve an EQ like this requires an external amplifier. It takes signal in allows you to manipulate the signal for your external amplifier to boost for your speakers. You cannot hook it up directly to your speakers. What you seek is similar to the MS-8

It has a built in amplifier so there is no additional equipment.
