I have come before the car audio masters with a question... First of all, I found an EQ at a Goodwill store the other day... Alpine 3218 Passive EQ Powered EQ with audio out (passive) ...with a $6.99 price written on it. I knew it was worth a bit more than that, so I bought it. In my relative ignorance of higher-end car stereo, I damn near passed out when I found one of these for sale online (used) for $150. It's a 9-band EQ/amp, and it puts out 40W x 2. Two questions. How much was this when it was new? What's the best use I can get out of it? I'll be working with a late-model Isuzu Rodeo, and I've also got some leftover stereo equipment from my last truck, and other stuff I've bought along the way: Sony 35x4 CD deck (Soon to be replaced with probably a Blaupunkt 55x4) 2 Clarion 5x7 3-way (Won't fit in the Rodeo unless I get creative) various tweeters 2 Kicker competition 8" subs, in sealed "Ranger" enclosures Kenwood 240W mono amp (used for above subs previously) 2 MTX "Blue Thunder" 10" subs 2 Sony 6x9's (probably not going to be used) I'd like to use as much of my old equipment as I can, but I know I'm going to have to buy some 5.5" midranges for the doors, and I need to find a better solution than the factory 4" rear speakers (possibly 6x9's - better ones than the Sony's I've got) So, basically, what should I do with this EQ? Thanks!
