OK. I'm terribly new to all of this, so bear with me. What I have right now is this:

HU: Nakamichi MB-75.

Speakers: Infinity Kappa 5x7s
Amp: MTX Thunder1004 (4-channel)

Sub: RE8
Amp: MTX Thunder 251D (mono)

(I can dig up stats on all of these, just tell me what info is needed)

I want to pull all of this together properly, but I'm not entirely sure how. I know I want an EQ (I like the adjustment flexibility), but I dont know which one, or what features I need with this setup.

Anyone have advice? Right now the only things installed are the HU and the Infinities.

are you looking for an EQ to 'tune' the system once its together? or do you want something in-dash to monkey with as you feel the urge while listening?

this will make a diference in the type of EQ I'd suggest

An equalizer is a device that lets you adjust the gain (or volume) of a frequency or frequencies on teh music you are playing. There are two types, graphical and parametric. A graphical EQ already has set points at which you cna boost, anywhere from 1 band all the way to 30 (an eclipse model). A parametric lets you assign the number of bands, band width and amount of gain for each band.

from what ya said I'd go with a pre-amp/EQ setup that mounts in-dash.
kicker has one, Orion's is/was the 300PSW (they sell on ebay now and then), zapco has one, audiocontrol does too..
these generally offer volume, fade, balance, and 3 to 6 bands of EQ adjustment, usually graphic or parametric.

unless you feel the need for 11 separate bands, that'd be my suggestion.
