Depends on whether you need it to flatten the response curve in your car or not. If your car has peaks or valleys in the response curve then yes, it's worth it. If it's already flat then it's a waste of time.

To be honest, kinda lost me

As of right now, I have no idea because I have nothing installed, actually waiting on it all to come in...

A peak is where a certain frequency range (or just specific frequency) is louder than the rest of them and a valley is where it sounds weak or dull. Flat is where everything sounds even from the lowest bass up to the highest treble.
