Is there not a actual equalizer on these HU? Because all i can find in the manual as well as playing with the unit is that they are all preset. I dont want preset because i want no bass or atleast very little on my door speakers (stock for now) and id like to turn the highs up a tad. Right now i cant go above 15 on the volume because my **** speakers begin to distort and ive got the setting on "flat" for now. Sooo..is there anyway to turn the bass off on the mids? I totally expected there to be some sort of individual settings but im either retarded, blind or correct.

I want to say to get there, hold down the menu button and it will bring up crossovers and parametric EQ, 5 band. But this is on my 9855 on regular mode not active.

ya, i found the parametric EQ 5 band and 7 band, but then when i go into those, it brings up a menu that has like, Flat, jazz, pop, rock, etc. Which are preset. Unless im just missing something, or didnt fully get into the settings im not sure. I couldnt seem to find any bass or treble settings on the unit, or in the manual, which to me seems strange. I did find the fader, and balance though, but thats not what i need. I would have thought for sure this unit would have some sort of mid controls, since its supposed to be one of the better SQ units from 05.

just hold the menu button until something pops up. that should be your "pro settings" which will then let you change crossover settings, parametric or graphic EQ setting whichever you have yours set to have.

to choose whether you want parametric or graphic EQ just push the menu button and then go into setup, then audio, then you should see equlizer which lets you change between graphic or parametric.

page 15 and 16 of the owners manual tells you all about it.

The 9855 has a fairly extensive (for a HU) eq and xover, they're explained in the manual. To fix your problem, though, you need to set your high pass crossover point for your mids.

there should be a user 1 and user 2 setting along with the flat, rock, jazz etc settings that you can customize yourself. how that is done is beyond me read the manual
