In 20 years of doing car audio I've never seen, built, or heard, a car without a processor with a delay, that didn't need at least one mid or midbass polarity reversed.

If you're going to add an EQ just skip and go right to a full-bore processor like a Zapco DSP-6SL or Audison Bit One if you want to do the tweaking yourself. If not, try the JBL MS-8.
The processors seem like a good way to cure a number of problems, but my budget doesn't extend that far. Ans I've never used sophisticated audio analysis tools before, I wouldn't know what to do.

That said, do you think it would be worth paying an audio shop to do a little tweaking of my existing system?
