i had a zuess in 1996 lol, they had some bad *** stuff then, so hopefully they didnt pull the lanzar/pyramid thing. Lanzar used to have really good amps but then they got bought by pyramid and went to crap (a lanzar dealer told me that). The bass controls are good for different kinds of music like rap versus rock (i learned this today) your supposed to be able to cut back the sub bass so your not destroying the rock song with overwhelming bass, but when you get on a rap track you can crank it way back up and start dropping some heavy bass again. If im wrong let me know im still learnign here.
