Overview: The DSEQ505BT Wireless Smart EQ Processor gives
you 7 bands of EQ, music streaming, along with controls for balance, fader, and
subwoofer level, all from your Bluetooth connected Android or Apple smartphone
Bluetooth (Ver. 2.1 + EDR): All control of the Smart EQ
Processor is done through a Bluetooth connected smartphone using the Smart EQ
App, downloaded free from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Pairing is
initiated from the phone by searching and connecting to 'SmartEQ-xxxxxx' from
the device list. Default PIN is - 1234. Once paired and within range of the EQ,
the Smart EQ App can be used for control. The DSEQ505BT supports both A2DP and
AVRCP, letting you steam Bluetooth Audio to the system as well control all of
the EQ's functions. This also allows the DSEQ505BT to be the playback device for
installations where there is no headunit connected, such as on an ATV or boat. A
4" Bluetooth antenna is included that screws onto a threaded post on the side of
the Smart EQ Processor. The antenna can be rotated up to 180˚ and offers 3 tilt
adjustments of 0˚, 45˚, and 90˚
Note: Bluetooth hands-free phone calls are not
supported. Bluetooth functionality is only for control and audio streaming.
Smart EQ: All of the DSEQ505BT's functions are controlled
with the Smart EQ App which includes:
- Source Selection: Allows selection of either Head Unit,
when using the line inputs, and BT Streaming audio sources.
- 7-Band EQ: A graphic EQ with adjustments for 62Hz,
157Hz, 396Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 6.3kHz, and 16kHz is provided. Each frequency
band can be adjusted by +/-15dB using either the graphic fader or up/down
buttons for incremental steps.
- Presets: Twenty EQ Presets are available, 17
pre-configured ranging from Acoustic to Voice Booster, and 3 User assignable
presets for storing your own EQ settings.
- Fade/Balance: Two graphic faders are provided for
adjusting the Fade and Balance of the output signal, when using both front
and rear pre-outs. The orientation of the focal point is depicted on an X/Y
- Subwoofer: A single graphic fader allows individual
adjustment of the Subwoofer output level.
- Volume Offset: Only available when using the High-Level
Inputs, this can used to correct uneven volume levels.
Inputs & Outputs: The DSEQ505BT features 2 input channels
and 6 output channels.
- Inputs: These include a pair of RCA low-level jacks as
well as a removable terminal block for high-level inputs, allowing the Smart
EQ Processor to be used with factory headunits or radios with no pre-out
jacks. The terminal block features set-screw connectors that can accept wire
up to 14 AWG.
- Outputs: These consist of 6 RCA jacks configured in
pairs for Front, Rear, and Subwoofer. Output signals are pre-amp level and
will require an amplifier or powered speaker (sold separately).
Signal Sensing & Remote Outputs: The DSEQ505BT features
signal sensing technology for automatic activation from an input signal on
either the Line-Input jacks or via a Bluetooth Audio signal. Two Remote Output
jacks, on a removable connector, are provided for triggering outboard
amplifiers. Set-screw terminals for both can accept up to 14 AWG wire.
Power/Ground: A 4-pin Molex connector with 12" of bare-ended
18 AWG wire is provided for power and ground.
