We are dragging out the old stuff now, a 3900, a 5957s and a Momo/Alpine wheel....
I use a Cha-634 mp3 stacker with my 7620....

I searched for and downloaded several pics of the 7620R. Pretty kicka$$. Is it a DigitalMax controller, too? My setup consisted of a 7618, 3681, 4381, CHM-S620, 4 x 3522Ss, and one 3527S. I never could get the F-R fader on the 3681 to work. It sucked because I had no equalization, and no fading. What was pretty cool, was the ability to change the virtual location of any of the drivers by pressing few buttons.

Yes it is supposed to be digimax as well but I have never had the digital unit to go with it.
I run a 3544 2x150 and the 3554 4x50 amps and have a spare 3554 and a 3552.
I also run the 3331 indash eq which is my crossover as well but I have no need for a fader as I haven't run rear speakers for about 13-14 years now....
I find that the cha-634 Ai-net stacker works well with it as it has very similar specs to the 5959 stacker which was the top unit in it's time and I like the mp3 option and luckily I can use the Ai-net stacker with the M-bus head unit....

Was just lookin' at the 3681 user's manual last night and tried to see if there was anything I might've missed in enabling the fader circuitry in the processor, but don't really see anything. Also, since I'm not prepared to give up fading control and dash-mounted crossover control, I'm sticking with the 3331 EQ/X-over. Still working on the aux input thing, though..............

Yeah, why not. My buddy used to use the ERE-G180, essentially a 3331 with the BBE Sonic Maximizer. I briefly had a 3318, but it was a bit noisy from the small DC-DC in it. But its dancing LED display was pretty cool.

I think the 3331 is all I really need 'cuz it's got the pre-fader, non-fading sub out (either stereo or mono, 0 or 180 degrees), continuously adjustable x-over freq range from 50Hz to 250Hz(??), and x-over bypass. All in a 1" x 7" package.

Old car just died, so I picked upa 1993 Hinda Accord in pristine condition with only 82K (135,750km) miles on it! Its radio/spkrs suck, so out they come and in will go the 7618, 3331, and 3527S (4 x 25Wrms) for now. I plan to put my sub box in the rear with a dedicated 3522S (80W bridged) for each of the two sub drivers.

I plan to use the audio interrupt from the changer to the head unit to allow DVD audio, or my 2M / 440MHz dual-bander to be played through the system.

It is unusual to find someone who still uses this old gear as well.
Don't forget to let me know how you go....

Not really. If you ask all the old-schoolers, they will only use the stuff that was made in Japan, not Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, or communist China.

I really don't like the stuff after they discontinued the 7618, because it all got cheaper (the CDA-7990 F1 Status is the only exception). All my amps, EQs, headunits, ch shuttles, and pre-pros are the old-school stuff.

And, of course, I will post my results and maybe send an .mpeg file. Does the 7620 have the neat little demo mode the 7618 has?

I don't know, how do you start it and what does it do?
As far as the old stuff most people are more interested in unrealistic over inflated power ratings and lots of flashing lights which means they find the old gear boring.
More fool them...

Ha! That's their problem. As for me, I'm happy as a clam with my old-school stuff, 'cuz I know it works today, and will work another 15 yrs from now, 'cuz that's the way it was built.

To start the demo mode, push the D DISP button on the extreme right-hand side. The dot-matrix portion of the LCD display will start scrolling, rt-to-left, the promotional verbiage of the 7618. It's pretty cool.
