I am a far of Bob Heil and his products..    Than being said.  I think the "parametric" (tong in cheek!) Graphic Equalizer in the Flex is superior.  I am making an adaptor that controls the EQ via cat-commands to give the same functionality with the twist of a knob......I shal find out....:-)

I think you'll get the same response from most.   Adding something external to a system which has better control internal (built-in graphic equalizers for both Receive and Transmit audio) and cost nothing extra does not seem to make sense.   
Will it work?  Undoubtedly.  I would follow this up with the saying:  "That you can do a thing, does not mean you must or should do a thing."

I agree, My concept is to have a simple knob that ratio-metrically adjusts the Graphic equalizer.   The idea is to turn the simple knob fully clockwise and then set the gain of each of the channels of eq for the farthest extreme of enhancement of voice audio ineligibility.  At that point i hit the "store" button on my device.  I can then turn the knob back to center-detent and the EQ will be flat.   In that way, on-the-fly I can give the knob a twist to "enhance" or the reverse "diminish" the voice audio.  I expect to be able to bring out a hard to understand voice or compensate for a station that uses to much DX- compression.     73 de N5PSM
