How an equalizer is used
The PEQ10 graphic equalizer is a high-
fidelity signal processor/preamplifier
that allows you to graphically view and
individually control a number of different
frequency bands in a stereophonic
system.
It is intended for use in a car audio
system which includes amplifiers in
the signal path AFTER the equalizer,
and provides Front, Rear and
Subwoofer LOW LEVEL outputs via
RCA connectors.
PEQ10 User's Manual - page 2
This graphic equalizer consists of
several audio filters, each centered
at a specific frequency in the audio
range. The PEQ10 enables you to cut
or boost the output level by up to
12dB as desired at the following fre-
quencies:
75Hz * 200Hz e 2kHz e 20kHz
The PEQ10 also features a subwoofer
channel with an independent cross-
over control. The crossover can be
set from 45Hz to 180Hz. Any signal
below the frequency setting will be
sent to the subwoofer outputs, allow-
ing you to optimize the sound to suit
your particular subwoofer setup. Use
of the subwoofer channel is optional.
