    Hi Carl,
    It's 9.00 AM Friday morning here and I have just been out to my car and change my EQ settings on the DQ-61 to what you have set and also returned the Head Unit's EQ to the default setting. The sound now is amazing I think they are the best settings yet, crisp clear highs and nice bass and not overblown.
    I'm still having trouble with a little bit of hiss when you have the volume turned down or music on pause, it's not that loud and with the engine running you hardly notice it. It's a slight hiss sound and not a whine like you get from the alternator and the car has to be pretty quiet to hear it. I can stop it if I turn the input levels right down on the DQ-61 but then I loose too much volume. I think I will live with it as it isn't that bad but it's bugging me what is causing it. It could be my 60 Watt Kenwood Amp too and unlike your Rockford Fosgate amp mine doesn't have any input level control fitted.
