Using the equalizer

The equalizer lets you adjust the equalization
to match car interior acoustic characteristics
as desired.

Recalling equalizer curves

There are six stored equalizer curves which
you can easily recall at any time. Here is a list
of the equalizer curves:
Display Equalizer curve
POWERFUL Powerful
NATURAL Natural
VOCAL Vocal
CUSTOM Custom
FLAT Flat
SUPER BASS Super bass
!CUSTOM is an adjusted equalizer curve
that you create.
!A separate CUSTOM curve can be created
for each source. If you make adjustments,
the equalizer curve settings will be memor-
ized in CUSTOM.
!When FLAT is selected no supplement or
correction is made to the sound. This is
useful to check the effect of the equalizer
curves by switching alternatively between
FLAT and a set equalizer curve.
