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
Equalizer Frequencies
The frequency range that allows control of the center frequency of each equalization band.
50 - 16,000 Hz
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)
Built-in Bass Reconstruction
Bass reconstructors, or bass enhancers, improve low frequency reproduction in a car audio system with at least one subwoofer. These bass expander products will help your subs produce accurate bass thumps.
No
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
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
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.
0.005%
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.
105 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.
4"

Talk About Sound quality

February 22, 2012

My system was what i thought as clean sounding as i could get it, with all new Alpine components ect. WOW was i wrong this thing makes those compents nice, crisp and clear, on top of the sound quality Lets go into how this thing cleans up the bass. I have a TWO Fi btl n2 15's walled, and this EQ took the BIG BASS aspect up a notch. I love messing with the two HERTZ knobs (50,125) it helped me clean up some clipping on tracks that i like to give Demo's with, so to ALL The Haters That say EQ's induce clipping, your full of your self. ONLY THING I DO SAY IS DONT GET CHEAP RCA's OR IT WILL ONLY MAKE YOUR SYSTEM SOUND WORSE. So with that being said if your going to invest the time and money invest it completely and get good quality rca's. FLORIDA SPL BABY!!

Hard choice...

November 12, 2010

There are so many options here on SE that it took me quite a while to finally decide on this Clarion EQ. I have a 1995 Formula Firebird Convertible, and it took a bit of work to make my HU (Power Acoustik PTID-8970NRB) and this EQ fit properly in the dash kit I bought here (Metra 99-4544). I used my Dremel to fine tune the dash kit. It finally went in nicely, only to find that the car's trim plate wouldn't fit with the HU and EQ combo. So, more Dremel work and it looks great. As far as the performance, since this EQ has 7 volts output to my HU's 2 volts, the difference was immediate and impressive. I just installed it an hour ago, so I haven't tweaked anything yet, but the little I did do told me right away that this is one of the best peices of equipment you can buy for your car audio. Another note...my HU's remote wire would not work when split. I already had bought a PAC trigger module for the amps, but even with that, splitting the remote just to the EQ was no good. I guess the remote circuit on my HU is pretty low powered. So, I just wired the remote input of the EQ to a switched source and grounded it to a switch...problem solved. It's a great looking EQ and a great peice of audio equipment. And as always, SE's shipping was fast and accurate. One thing I have to mention about SE's shipping...other websites charge individually for shipping, in that if one of your items has free shipping, they will still charge you the same rate for other items. SE will always do it's best to combine your items within your free purchase to charge you as little as possible in the same shipment. SE is clearly the best.

This equalizer did an amazing job and saved me 400-600 dollars on a new head unit. I have it hooked to an alpine pdx-5 amp and infinity kappa 6x8 speakers. I will definitely always own an external equalizer with all my future stereos.

July 13, 2007

i thought i had a nice sounding system, then i put this eq in. the eq made my system sound 5x better. the separate volume and bass controls are really convenient. most eqs at this price are only 5 band eqs but this one is 7. i like turning down my highs and turning up the bass and this eq made it really easy.

I have owned several EQ's over the years including Kenwood and Kicker products.

This thing is rock solid. I was expecting some sort of flaw due to the price but I was surprised.

After about 6 months of use I am glad I bought one of these. I have recommended and installed 2 more of them in friends vehicles.

Cats meow!!!!

January 6, 2012

I've been in car audio since the three piece zapco and electro voice was speakers of choice in those days. Used px, sx eqs and a concord, and those black fusion EQ's hard to find when they were new on scene. I like this clarion, it is phenomenal. Wouldn't trade it for anything amazing. I like layout on Clarion best!!! In 1992 i tell ya im blown away by this bad boy. Coupled with a dxz 845 and phoenix gold ti 600 zx 350 planet audio zed it sounds freakin unbelievable if done pro install style. Dumbfounded by this creampuff!

I recently had this EQ "Custom" installed =) at B*** B** in my Lexus and man just when I thought my sounds couldn't get better they just did! My JVC stereo has a built in digital 7 band EQ but its just not the same as getting an actual EQ. Now I am able to fine tune my highs, mids and lows and let me tell you that now my bass (lows) hit so much harder and deeper than before!

CLARION EQS746 is amazing!

July 24, 2007

I purchased this EQ hoping to improve the sound quality of my system and it certainly delivered even more. I have syntalating sound! My bass is louder than ever, but more importantly much cleaner sounding. EQ analog knobs allow me to fine tune my mid's and high's without having to sacrifice losing the bass from my sub. EQ also allowed me to turn my amp gains down, and still have better sound than before. This EQ,at what it's priced for is a steal. Great Buy!

Should there be any problem if i install it on a BMW built in stereo?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2014
Best Answer: I would imagine there would be a problem. Because you need RCA outs from your stock stereo to the Clarion. If you do have those you will also need RCA out to & from the Clarion as the Clarion does not have raw speaker wire outputs.

Could I hook this up to a 12v 2amp dc wall adapter to run on a computer sound system?
josh v on Feb 12, 2015
Best Answer: I don't see why not. Its just an equalizer. Couple things to consider, output voltage is maximum 7 volts I would make sure this coincides with your speakers. And 2. I don't see a power consumption in amps anywhere but 2 amp sounds good.
