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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

For the price what could I expect. Easy to adjust. I do like the red or blue display. If you want to go as cheap as you can buy it, it does make a difference in the sound. If you are going to put money into your system buy higher end with more adjustments.

I've purchased a few stereo components from Sonic. Their prices are low and their stereo equipment is top notch. All my stereo needs will be purchased through this seller from now on. Thanks again Sonic. My car stereo kicks ass now.
