HU with the most control

Is there a head unit out there where I can control the crossovers. I want to experiment with rear fill, midbass. I also would rather have my crossovers done digitally at the HU instead of some tiny knob on the amp or some external crossover.

I know alpine has something like the mean freequency setting for a channel.

What brand of HU offers the most prcise control.?

I am more of a Home audio guy and was wondering if car audio can offer the same control.

I have the Eclipse CD8454. There are all kinds of equalizer settings and two modes - pro mode and easy mode for your equalizers and time alignment. It's a great HU even though I don't really use the pro mode. I don't need it with the speakers I have. Crappy stock speakers. But I think it is like a 10 band parametric equalizer.

yup any high end eclipse or alpine unit would serve your needs.
I personally prefer to use outboard processing for all of that if I can, but if you want it all packed into a head unit the Eclipse CD8454 may be a good bet for ya.
