Review 2 of 6

Price Paid:  $299.00 from I.C.S.

Year / Model Reviewed:
1998 AudioControl 4.1

Strengths:
Everything

Weaknesses:
Absolutely none.

Summary:
To Dave from below, what kind of idiot buys a 5 band eq then is pissed because it has only 5 bands and is not a complete system eq? The 4.1 is a great eq, the line driver makes a huge difference. I also really like the para-bass. The other 4 bands are not meant to make a awful sounding system like Dave must have sound great, they are for minor adjustemnts to difference or problems with the source you are playing such as some recordings that have weak bass or high frequencies. If you want a system setup eq look for something like a Precision Power DEQ-30, if you want a great 5 band eq for minor correction and a line driver check out the 4.1 or 3.1 if you need a crossover as well. The 3.1 is the 4.1 minus the control at 500 hz, but the addition of a 24dB crossover.

Review 3 of 6

Price Paid:  $160.00 from ebay

Year / Model Reviewed:
 2001

Strengths:
line driver, balanced outs, aux input

Weaknesses:
no rear inputs... not enough parametric EQ points

Summary:
Great great item...lots of features. Its number one purpose however is as an EQ...its not the best EQ because it only has 5 Eq frequencies. But they definately help for on the fly tuning especially if you''ve got another EQ of some sort somewhere in your signal chain where you can fine tune the frequencies that your system constantly needs tuned, otherwise the four.1 definately hits the right spots. I love the fact that Im using it with the audiocontrol 6xs so I actually have a high voltage signal from the line driver of the four.1 running on balanced lines to the 6xs. This makes for a really quiet and saturated signal...so this EQ is definately worth even more to you if you use it with an AC x-over or EQ which will take the balanced signal from the four.1

Review 4 of 6 , from swansea ma

Price Paid:  $280.00

Strengths:
great line driver, has a few nifty feature

Weaknesses:
freqs should be variable, its a 5 band, so its VERY limited as an eq

Summary:
as far as a full system eq, forget the 4.1, its good for a little tweak here and there,not much more, I now use mine off the sub outs on my deck, and use it only to tweak the bass end, and as a line driver, it , like all A/C products, has a great s/n ratio
