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.
4 band
Equalizer Frequencies
The frequency range that allows control of the center frequency of each equalization band.
40 - 20,000 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
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
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).
20 - 20,000 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.
0.05%
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.
4-1/4"
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
1-1/8"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
6-13/16"

Good Buy $

September 24, 2008

This is a good EQ. for the money. However, the preset frequencies on the mid range control is set too low. Some other brands controls are set at 2.5K instead of the 1K of the Boss EQ1208.

Very nice addition!

November 7, 2011

I originally got a Boss AVA 1215 eq. Not bad little eq in it's own right. I really like this 1208 model better. It is much cleaner and has up to 7 volt output. Yeah it only has 4 bands of equalization but it works very well for me. I setup all my eq's and stuff to classical because of the wide range of tones and also the various instruments. The system virtually handles all types of music with only minor changes to accent what type of music you listen to on a regular basis. As always, Sonix and their great staff treat me right with quality service, products and sane pricing.

GREAT EQUALIZER VALUE

October 14, 2011

The Boss EQ1208 is not only a great value for under $30, it is a great EQ at any price. It only has 4 EQ bands, but the 40 & 150 Hz bands do a fine job of adusting the bass frequencies - which is why most people use an equalizer. The Volume Control allows a higher voltage signal to be sent to the amp in my trunk to reduce noise pick-up in the RCA cables. The Fader lets me make that adjustment without having to go thru several menu items on my head unit. The 105db S/N Ratio is an excellent specification and the Dual Illumination (the RED) matches my CD/radio display almost exactly. I mounted the EQ in my dash right above the head unit & it looks great. I couldn't be happier with the Boss EQ1208 and at that price I even bought a spare.

worked well for my needs

January 29, 2011

This product fit right in with my entire boss audio system. I mainly used this equalizer to tune my 10 inch boss phantom subwoofers down so that they would sound at their best when adjusted from my head unit, without having to much bass. the price was good, the design is cool! its all about knowing how to work with what you buy. for having a custom built, self installed $365 system in my 08 single cab f150, I can proudly say my system sounds a whole hell of a lot better than a lot of those "MEGA BUCK" systems. this product made a good addition to my sound quality in my truck.
