Audio Processor

I am looking to add an audio processor to my system. I have a 2012 fofo hatch with the 6 speaker system. I have added 6.5 inch comps (ID CXS62's) and a 2 channel Arc Audio amp (FD 2100 @ 95 watts rms). I am using the factory hu with a PAC SOEM-4 LOC. I want to change the LOC out for something that will clean up the sound, preferably add some eq ability also. I was leaning to the LCQ-1. Since then I have read some great things about the MS-8. I really did not want to spend $500.00 on this but I do want to do it right. Part of me thinks the MS-8 would be overkill since I am only running fronts and one 10 inch sub.
Is there any other product I should be looking at? Maybe the LCQ-1 would do everything I want... I think the MS-8 would be perfect but ....
All of your opinions are greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance!

The MS-8 would leave you room for future system expansion.

Plus, you could buy two small speakers, a 4 channel amp(you would need 6 channels total), dump the ID x-overs and have an active front stage that would RAWK
