I'm bypassing my CD player (sucks) and useing my iPod as the main reciever and going to hook my ipod to a amp/EQ. I bought a cheap $30 amp yesturday and sounds alright, but decided I need a EQ. But I think i'm giong to go ahead and return the amp and buy a decent 4-channel amp and install new speakers in the back of my car. I haven't been in the car audio business in awhile so i have no idea whats good out there anymore. Here is my pick for products: Pyramid 709EX 7 Band Pre-Amp Equalizer (link) Cerwin-Vega XL-300.4 4-Channel Mobile Amplifier(link) I'm looking around $130-150 for the amp and EQ? have no idea, not looking for anything spectacular, just something to control the tone like my CD-player did. Right now i'm useing my iPod EQ and lower the trebel which works ok. I'm not looking for 20000 watt amp, who uses so much watts? a good solid true 100 watt amp can be plenty loud. Any advice is welcome!
