    I have always heard..and believe.. that a bass knob is a waste. They do more for distortion than anything. Adjust through your H/U or eq.

    Re: Remote Bass Control Knob?

    That's what i do now with my current setup. I've just got a cheap *** Sony 10 n a sealed enclosure that i borrowed from a friend until i got my JL setup done. It's just that the RMS wattage of the amp is the max that JL recommends for those subs (i've heard they will handle more than the max) but i just wanted to make sure i wouldn't hurt the subs and if there was more control with knob or just convenience.
