The 2 holes on the bottom are factory and big enough for my RCA's....so 2 small holes for mounting is all.

Without going back and rereading this whole thread, what head unit are you running?

Most head units these days have at least 5 bands of EQ, sub level control, and internal crossover capabilities. The mid-level to high-level head units have even more. Therefore, this piece should be useless these days and will only add to the amount of equipment mucking up the signal chain.

Im running the Alpine 9886....need to run an Imprint setup to get full 5-band settings.

Gotcha....you could most likely sell that 9886 and buy last years Kenwood high end model on ebay and be out very little money (less than $50 at most). The top Kenwood single dins have 13 band EQ's, built in T/A, and pretty extensive crossover functions. Not to mention, burr brown chips, and 4-5 volt pre-puts. Heck, Kenwood's top models for the past 4+ years all have these features built in. Alpine is robbing customers.

If you aren't a Kenwood fan, you can get the Pioneer 80PRS for $250-$300 these days brand new in the box. Even more tuning features. Personally, I am not a Pioneer fan.

Just trying to help.

Ive looked into it....have thought of trying to get the Alpine 9887 which has everything built in....but right now staying within a budget...not trying to compete just something simple.

All in one is more simple....and better for the signal chain. The value of the 9886 and the Arc EQ is equal to or more than an all in one much BETTER head unit.

Yeah...just didnt have the extra funding to get the 9887. Plus couldnt pass up the deal on the EQ. and its only 4 extra run of wire of about 6 ft. Granted I dont have the time alignment feature. But just aiming for good clean sound with ease of control.
