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.
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.
3 band
Equalizer Frequencies
The frequency range that allows control of the center frequency of each equalization band.
40 - 10,000 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)
High-Pass (HP)
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.
Line Driver
A line driver is a small amplifier used to support the strength of the audio signal coming from the source unit.
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.
Total Number of Inputs
This is the total number of input connections that go into the unit.
Total Number of Outputs
This is the total number of output connections that the unit will produce.
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.

Multiple Colors
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.

One of the best purchases I've ever made

September 26, 2012

I can't believe they still make these. I bought mine back in 1995. It's been an excellent unit the entire time. If set up properly, you'll be amazed at how good your stereo sounds. I've even seen IASCA finalists using them. It can make an average set-up sound very good & a great set-up sound incredible. This is one of the few things that I haven't felt the need to change in my system in over 17 years. What's kind of funny is that these days, this could be considered your head unit & you could just run this to your mp3 player.

-1 day memory back-up (if you disconnect battery you don't have to reset everything)
-Time alignment
-Variable & Steep crossover slopes
-31 Band crossover
-Auto EQ

-Minimal number of custom presets allowed (4)
-Rather poor menu implementation & naviagation (still feels like a '90s menu)
-The display is a bit weak as the other reviewer noted.
-Low volt outputs (pretty sure it's 500mv from memory)

pioneer deq9200

August 5, 2009

I love my pioneer deq 9200 the only thing i dont like is the illumination is not bright enough for sunny days but at night you can see it just fine. This is the best EQ/Sound Processor you can buy for the price. Pioneer still sells this item for $500 but i found it at sonicelectronix for way cheaper so Big Ups To SONICELETRONIX

I Lost my face plate for my pioneer DEC 9200?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

I assume you are asking if we carry the faceplate that you've misplaced; Unfortunately, we do not sale parts for headunits, and do not have leads as to where to find parts for discontinued products. Your best approach will likely be to find a private seller.
