Product Details

BOSS AVA1202 7-Band Preamp Equalizer

The BOSS AVA1202 is a half DIN (1" high), 7-band equalizer that fits neatly inside of most automotive dash pockets, for driver accessible custom sound control. Boost or cut the highs, lows, or mids by ± 12 dB for the best possible audio on each song. Emphasize bass even more with the built-in X-BASS bass enhancement circuit. 

High-level inputs on the AVA1202 allow it to act as a high-to-low level converter for adding aftermarket crossovers, amplifiers, and subwoofers to OEM car audio systems. Fader control offers the ability to transfer sound between front and rear audio zones. 10 nine-segment independent left and right LED level indicators (five left, five right) move to the music for visual signal strength feedback. Illumination offers control when it's dark outside.

Popular center frequencies of 60, 150, 400, 1k, 3k, 6k, and 15k Hz are set to custom tailor sound to your preference. Four RCA line-level outputs send the equalized sound out to your amplifier or amplifiers. The EQ can be bypassed using the On/Off button. Mounting hardware is included.

Specifications: • EQ center frequencies: 60, 150, 400, 1k, 3k, 6k, and 15k Hz • ± 12 dB boost/cut • Frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz • Total harmonic distortion: <0.05% • Output voltage: 1.5V • Dimensions (H x W x D): 1" x 7" x 5.375".

Where does this device get installed (for example: on top of the stereo, on top of the dashboard?) Thank you.

Asked by: MrCarLover
Devices like this usually require a custom fabricated install wherever you want it, unless you can find a dash kit that will accept it above or below the head unit.

me again,

recently i asked of i could use this for home use and that got me thinking, could i use this for home use if a had a power supply\adapter for it, so would 12V, 1A be enough?
Asked by: speaker freack
Yes this will work for a home application with a 12VDC adapter.

Does this also have RCA low level inputs?

I see that the 7 band model does have RCA inputs and I would like to have it confirmed that the 5 band model has it as well, Thanks
Asked by: parkranger
This does indeed have low level and high level inputs.
