Is there anyone out there that longs for the return of 1/2 din graphic equalizers? You know the ones like Alpine had and sony xe series with multi coloured spectrum analyzers. I freakin' loved those, at one time I had two 1/2 din units and a clarion gooseneck with spectrum in my 89 Stang. To me it's just about playing with the sound for fun and mood and those dancing lights just look cool when it's really dark. Am I alone in this or are there other eeq freaks out there?

I'm a HUGE spectrum display fan Yeah I can say that those dancing bars attract my attention like sprarkly things to a baby. I always liked the ollllld Alpine 3317 1/2 din spectrum display eq, and then the 3339 and then 3342 units.

Check this out, I got a 3348 that was JDM-only (not avail. in N. America), full DIN and alllll display baby:


I don't even care if I have it hooked up inline with the signal to adjust the sound. I have a 3401 parametric eq for that but I think it would look great installed just for the dancing bars.

Sux, you got the stuff man!! Where do you find it all?

The Alpine PXA-H900 has both a signal graphic display mode, and using the provided microphone; an acoustical graphic display mode.

The 3348 definitely looks cooler though.

^ Ebay I love the fact that the 3348 is full DIN of spectrum display action and also has those beautiful 6 Alpine-signature chiclets. I'm trying to think of a way to put it in my truck.

When I am at work, I use Windows Media Player and the display is always the dancing bars [img]smile.gif[/img]

Sux if you ever come across another one of those please let me know. I wish Alpine would make a surface mount control/display like the 3348 but with a hide away chassis/cpu unit, then you could mount it where ever you wanted.

^ They did. The 3339 and 3342. On Ebay all the time. They made a 3362 as well which was quite a whizzy processor. Kinda like the predecessor to the PHA-700 I'd say. They bring quite the dollar too.

Here's a 3342, along with a 7618 and changer. Guy wants way too much though:

Here is the G320 which replaced the 3342:

Dukk, I don't think mine will look as pretty as Alpines', plus I'm kind of lazy and pretty busy in my day(put food on the table ) job.
