great write up. Much appreciated. I always wanted there to be a great auto eq option like this.

As of what I tried (pioneer auto-eq, JBL ms8, Alpine Audessey) the kicker key had the only auto eq results that didnt require major tweaking but its a low power amp. Super impressive and Id like this option on their larger amps. This is wayyy more flexible and tweak able.

To be clear the unit is $500, then to be able to use DL will cost about $400 more. So roughly $900 to give it a go.

I am very intrigued about using this with a 2 way in front and rears + sub.

Is there surround sound processing of some sort or any effects for rears in this unit?
