I am considering getting the Alpine CDA105 (currently 150 at crutchfield) and the imprint pxa H100.
Here is my question, what would you guys rather do
1. Run the automatic imprint equalization
2. Use the manual adjustments
I am leaning towards the manual controls because of the 5 band parametric controls, ability to set crossover points and slopes, and manually adjust the TA settings.
The negatives I have read about the automatic system is that it flattens the midbass too much and there being too much sibilance. On another note I used my android to run audio tools to generate an RTA analysis and my major peaks are at 125Hz, 250Hz, 1.2 Khz, and 2.5Khz. I could use the parametric to bring down the largest peaks in my system but also be able to adjust tonality of the system as a whole.
Let me know if going this route is a good option on a budget of $300.
