Default Clarion DXZ775USB: Ratings of 9887 cd7100 860mp 880prs as well

So I have not seen a review of this deck on the forum, thought I would share my experience.

First the menu system is very intricate, but makes a whole lot of sense. There are options all over the face that allow you to do different adjustments as needed. It takes no time getting used to the slide face and the slide buttons but its nothing that any dimwit couldn't get used to quickly. As far as SQ, this deck sounds great right out of the box.

For 3-way active mode which is the way I am running it, the pe-q is a 3 band, and it allows for some adjustments that no other HU save maybe other clarions can let you adjust. I can adjust the 3 bands to the same frequency IE all at 63 hz, and adjust them all up to a +36 db gain at that frequency, that is pretty sick if you ask me but of course not recommended. The boost is adjustable left and right as well. I could do a 12db gain on the left and a 6 db gain on the right if I wanted to. I have not used the standard bass/treble control but I am impressed with this 3band peq.

Crossover points are fantastic, and you can bandpass the sub channel, so in essence this deck is ideal in running a 3-way up front without sub. To add a sub you would want / need some additional processing/crossover.

The display is a little dated in its look. The display is poor, adjustability of the color is great, but it just looks so... cheap? The slidetrak makes the deck face a bit bulky. I can't complain though I love the way the deck sounds, the outputs are strong at 6v, marked difference from the 9887 I had. I cannot comment on the sub output yet as that is not something I have tested (my IB subs are still awaiting a few parts to get started).

Overall here is how I would rate the deck:

Clarion DXZ775USB
