AudioControl Store

For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning autosound products at our factory located in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. During this period, countless sound-off winning contestants have chosen AudioControl products to give them the competitive edge. "Can you really win without AudioControl", was part of an article written commenting on competition winning systems. Nothing sounds better than an awesome recording played back on a kickbutt system. Unfortunately, the acoustics of your vehicle can take away from your systems performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act like they do), autosound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products "make good stereo sound better".

The AudioControl EQL - 2 Channel Trunk-Mount 13 Band Equalizer

The EQL works wonders with any 2 channel audio system: From existing factory installed setups to custom audiophile-grade systems. Level-matching circuitry allows connection to either preamp-level or speaker-level inputs. The EQL also features thirteen-band, dual-bandwidth equalization and a Programmable Frequency Match (PFM) filter for precise bass control.

Key Features:

Dual Bandwidth Equalizer - 13 bands:

The dual bandwidth design of the EQL concentrates more control in the lower bass frequencies where the interior of an automobile causes problems. The higher frequency controls are spaced on octave centers to give you complete control up to 16,000 Hz. No simple dash-mount equalizer gives you this kind of flexibility.

Level Matching:

True standards in car stereo are hard to find. Every manufacturer has a slightly different interpretation of things. The input and output level controls on the EQL bring everything together. Now any head unit can be connected to any amplifier and the will system sound great.

Balanced Input:

The EQL takes noise rejection a step further than the average by incorporating balanced differential input circuitry. By looking at the output from your source unit in a different way the EQL can reject up to 60 dB of radiated noise.

Programmable Frequency Match Filter:

AudioControl's Programmable Frequency Match (PFM) filter system brings out the best in any system. A modular programmable low-cut frequency filter allows the system installer to easily customize the bass roll-off to match any speaker design. Unruly subwoofer boxes can finally be brought under control.

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.
13 band
Equalizer Frequencies
The frequency range that allows control of the center frequency of each equalization band.
31.5 - 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.

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.
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Max Output Level
The maximum level (in volts) of signal output. A higher level will increase the clarity and boost your signal.
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 - 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.
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.
110 dB
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.

Thank God it's Made in USA!!!

August 29, 2013

The unit is pretty awesome. I bought it for a system to be used in my basement. I paired it with a hefty Soundstream Tarantula amplifier. Lots of power, lots of clarity. Source unit is a vintage Sony walkman. Am very pleased with the overall sound quality, especially considering how little I paid for the system.

great tuning!

October 7, 2011

if you have a amp running a component set. Then this is some thing you should look into! It even sends a higher volt signal to your amp acting as a inline line driver! Must get!

Awesome product, value

October 18, 2016

So far I am extremely pleased with product especially since it was a gift works flawlessly fine tuned with a real time spectrum analyzer (R.T.A.)..

Pros: great clean sound easy installation USA built.great build quality and, all tuning frequencies are dead on.the crossover is a plus but would be nice if it was a three way but the two way works great.

Cons: only minor thing is some of the knob a bit hard to turn than others not a big deal but made tuning a Lil difficult for precision tuning.

I will most definitely reccomended this wonderful unit.
