    Default Wetsounds ws-420SQ???

    I was going to buy the ws-420 this week but checked on the Wetsounds site and noticed that the pictures for the 420 had changed. It looks like it's now the 420SQ and has 3 zone controls. I assume the 3rd is the sub? It also looks like they added a main volume control knob. Has anyone heard anything about this or used it yet? I really like the idea of the sub being able to be controlled separately as well as the main volume control but wanted to see if you guys knew anything about it first...

    The Wetsounds EQ is all new with a number of revisions. And it is in stock as of now.
    Yes, master volume control.
    Yes, independent bass level control so you can sum bass with either zone. Still has separate tower and in-boat zone controls.
    Low noise.
    Still has the P.A. system.
    Still has independent 4-band EQs for the tower and in-boat zones!!!
    Six channel discrete outputs and pro quality construction that you will not find on other EQs.

    Interesting, glad they are listening.
    they finally made the buttons bigger on some control, looks like the inboat / tower control might be hard to get to right between those master volume and sub control.

    Was the sub frequency attenuation knob removed in favor of a sub volume knob?

    Drew that's an older video for the originally product, looks like some of the functionality has changed slightly, for the positive. I wish I pulled my old one from the old boat....

    Joe,
    Yes, in a sense. They did away with the paragraphic bass EQ. Previously you could adjust both the turnover frequency and the gain. Most users didn't understand the feature and didn't use it correctly. Although I liked it. Now they are using a dual zone four band graphic (separate in-boat and tower equalization) and have added the conventional bass level control as that is what many requested.

    Are you able to turn up the bass volume without turning up the boat or tower speakers?

    I do not see a switch for changing illumination color. Is that function gone? If so, what color is it?
