The Clarion EQS746 is more than just an equalizer. First thing, the sound quality of this equalizer is hard to find even in professional studio grade equipment, with Signal-To-Noise Ratio (S/N) of 105 dB, a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of 0.005 % and Frequency Response from 10 Hz - 50,000 Hz, this equalizer is definitely for people who want to hear music as was recorded, no noise, no distortion, wide dynamic range means high quality sound without compromise.
To make things even better the Clarion EQS746 inputs/outputs are all gold-plated, so you get no corrosion and better signal transfer.
The Clarion EQS746 also acts as a Low-Pass Crossover with selectable frequency of 60 Hz or 90 Hz (12 dB/octave Crossover Slope), add to that a separate subwoofer volume level control at your finger tips and a stereo sub-out --which makes perfect sense-- you're in control of the bass!
The Clarion EQS746 has 6 RCA outputs, two for stereo subwoofer and 4 for two pair of stereo speakers (front/rear) you can operate the device with only front or rear, or with both connected. Moreover your get a fader control to adjust the sound level between the front and rear speakers.
The main volume control is another story, because this is not just an equalizer as I said before it also acts as a pre-amp (AKA line-driver) with a Maximum Output Level of 7V RMS!
One last thing about this beautiful device is the AUX input with an easy to use "push-push" AUX button near the volume control. It means that you can select between two audio sources with just one click. Like you can connect your head unit as the primary source of sound and connect another --let's say portable audio player-- to the AUX input, and then select what audio source you want to listen to without having to plug/pull cables while on the road, how easy can that be! Oh did I mention that you can control the AUX input level per channel. I think you now get the picture why I chose this device and why I love it so much.
What's next? I think Clarion can add more than 7 EQ bands, let's say 15 so you can have more control over the sound shape.
The Low-Pass Crossover could have had more frequencies to select instead of two, 60 Hz is not deep bass enough for some people who like to tune at less than 40 Hz but anyway that's not a big deal because your subwoofer amplifier will take care of this.
I highly recommend this product.
