Density in equal distance projection

Hello,

I have an earthquakes point feature class that spans the US.  I would like to use the point density tool over the extent of my feature class.  The points  use the WGS 1984 geographic coordinate system.  Because I would like my density to be in square Km(instead of something arbitrary based off decimal degrees) I set my data frame projection to world equal distance conic.  If my point feature class is being displayed in an equal distance projection will my density raster be more flawed then if I use and equal area projection?

if anyone knows it would be a huge help

thank you,
Ian
