Another EQ Question - In Dash

Anybody ever heard of either of these In Dash Sony EQ's? There both DIN sized EQ's and I'm thinking about getting one or the other. What do you think of the features of both and which one would you recommend? I'm going with one of these as it will match up better with the Sony Head Unit I'm going to install. I put a picture of each unit just to show what they look like but they are not installed.

One thing, neither of them come with cables or instructions so do you think that will be a problem? Opinions?

IMO, Sony EQ's suck ass. Kenwood EQ's suck too.
Many add tons of hiss. I would pass.
Audio Control 4.1 or 3.1 are good. Alpine G180 gives you more adjustments but not line drivers (like Audio Control).
I do not like the Alpine G320.

Audio Control is the best! Its simple and effective hard to beat the tuneability and functions they have. Not to mention the clarity you will experience.
