    Remote bass knob

    I have a Rockford P1000-BD amp. Just wondering if I can add a bass knob to the amp? I have a kicker amp in my other car which has the bass knob. My gf hates bass so it will come in handy when I want to turn the bass down. Otherwise I'm looking into getting a Skar 1500 amp. But since I already have this one, it will be a much better option for me if I can just add it. Thx!

    PAC makes a volume control that you can insert in the RCA line to your amp.

    put a push-button switch on the remote wire and place the button near the head unit. It will turn the amp on/off as you please.

    its a boost a 45hz in low pass and 15khz in high pass I run one for each amp make sure you get the newest one(same one for both power/punch amps) or it will not work! if you want I may have a extra I can give you for a few bucks.

    Shoot me a PM with the details. I'm looking for the knob that will lower the amp, not turn it off. Similar to the one that comes with the Kicker amps. I can turn it all the way down and it basically shuts it off, or I can do anywhere in between.

    thats it, you can also take it apart and it will come with a separate led drill a small hole in the dash or where ever and get a nice custom look.
