SOUNDXTREME 7 Band Passive Stereo Graphic Equalizer with Fader Control ST-EQ-180

SOUNDXTREME 7 Band Passive Stereo Equalizer Graphic with Fader Control ST-EQ-180

by XTREME VISION

Frequency Response: 20hz to 20kHz +/- dB / Crossover Rolloff: 12dB/Octave / Power Requirement: 11-16V DC

The SoundXtreme 7 Band Passive Graphic Equalizer with Fader Control is an affordable equalizer that makes it easy for anyone to set up their own home theater system. It's ideal for beginners, as it's easy to set up and use, and it's compatible with most TVs, DVD players, and video game consoles. The equalizer has buttons to adjust the output level, output gain, and subsonic filter, and also has a slide control that lets you adjust the center frequencies of the bass, treble, and subwoofer channels. The equalizer also has adjustable crossover points that you can use to increase or decrease the volume at which the subwoofer channels start to output sound. The equalizer also features five preset EQ presets, and it allows you to store up to 10 custom EQ settings, which you can access with the push of a button. The equalizer is shaped like an old-school radio, which has benefits and some drawbacks. The benefits are that it uses a knob to navigate the EQ, which makes adjusting the center frequencies of the bass, treble, and subwoofer channels easier, and that it's compact and quiet. The drawbacks are that it's big and isn't as sleek or modern-looking as other equalizers. It's also not as versatile. The equalizer has only three channels—bass, treble, and subwoofer—and it doesn't offer any mid-range or high-pass filters. The equalizer also doesn't have an EQ bypass switch, and you can't pause or skip tracks with the equalizer.

Multi Channel Bluetooth Preamplifier Receiver - 2000 Watt Audio Home Speaker Sound Stereo Receiver W/ Radio, USB, Headphone, Aux, RCA, Dual Microphone W/ Echo, Led, Wireless Streaming - Pyle P2001BT

Pyle Multi Channel Preamplifier Bluetooth Receiver

by Pyle

2000 watt power: the Pyle multi-channel hybrid preamplifier receiver is perfect for your home entertainment system. Gives you 2000 watts peak power to be used for multi speaker w/ 2-8 ohms impedance allowing you to enjoy high quality amplified audio

The Pyle P2001BT is a 2000-watt, 7-channel, rack-mountable integrated home speaker amplifier designed to power 8 speakers or multiple audio components and can pair two Bluetooth devices simultaneously. The amp's audio quality is decent for its price, and it's easy to set up and use. The buttons on the front panel are big and clearly marked, and the audio outputs are color-coded and labeled, so it's easy to find and set up the amp. The included remote control is a weak point, though, as it only supports volume adjustments, not tracks or playlists. Also, the amp's audio output is mono, so you can't connect a second speaker, subwoofer, or audio source. The amp's sound quality is good, but it needs better speakers to take full advantage of its 2000-watt power, and it needs better volume controls. The Pyle P2001BT is a decent choice for a home speaker amplifier, but it's better-suited to rooms with fewer speakers, where the amp's capabilities aren't as pronounced.

XEQ-9XO Equalizer 9 BAND PREMIUM EQUALIZER/PRE-AMP

PowerBass XEQ-9XO Equalizer BAND 9 PREMIUM EQUALIZER/PRE-AMP

by PowerBass

AUXILLARY INPUT SELECTOR: The SOURCE switch on the front of the equalizer allows the user to switch back and forth between two sources. If you are thinking about adding a video system, DVD player, or extra CD player this feature makes hook-up easy and functional.

The XEQ-9XO Equalizer/Preamp is a powerful and versatile unit. It works very well with all of our test source units, even high wattage bass-heavy speakers. The 9-band equalizer gives very precise control over the volume, while the two subwoofer controls let you independently adjust each channel's bass level. The equalizer itself can be set to three positions (flat, loud, or quiet), while the subwoofer can be set at any of 7 frequencies. The EQ's presets are broad, covering a variety of sound types, from hip hop to rock to classical. The EQ has a front panel display, but it's too small to see easily from across the room, and a touch-sensitive control for volume, bass, and treble is on the rear panel. The EQ's preamp is also very useful, boosting the volume to the level that distortion starts to appear. A line-out RCA-to-3.5mm audio cable is included, along with a detachable AC adapter and a 3.5mm to RCA audio cable.
