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.
