It's just a parametric EQ. Adjust one of the bands down low to 30-50hz, and adjust the boost/attenuation how you like it. Also, adjust the Q to your liking. In a nutshell, q is the width of the curve of the boost/attenuation... if that makes any sense. That should help

I have the CDA 9887 so here goes:yumyum: . Ok i had the same question for an alpine tech and since the unit has a crossover that is where your treble(highs) and Bass(mids and low) adjustments will need to be made. You can only adjust bass and treble alone when you are using the multieq tuning kit and it is turned on for which i dont think it has been released yet. So your going to have to do the following:

1. Check you gains on your sub amp (check gain setting tutorial or have someone you know and trust)
2. adjust your crossover to your tastes (use search function or ask someone you trust)

Other than that i dont know what to tell you i am by no means a audiophile so do some trouble shooting and see what sounds right. I just tuned my system by using the search on the forum to understand what to have my crossover set to so that i have good clean sound to my own ears and not brake anything. :eyebrow:


Also check and make sure the mediaxpander is off and make sure the sub level is not all the way up. :eyebrow:

i dont know...i tried everything...and it still sounds like ****....
on amp is everything ok, on my p88 it worked great...so there shouldnt be a problem...
i think that somethings wrong with my hu....it should sound better even on the default settings...but this...omg...no sub...theres no kick...nothing...
ill try everything again but theres no use i think...
then ill go to the store...and i want them to try to do something with it...or i want a new one...i dont know.... ill report you ....

Hi,

First post to this forum. I switched from pioneer 8600 to alpine 9887 and the usage logic of alpine is strange..

First of all check your sublevel from audio button.. I read from somewhere that 0 actually means -15db on sub out level and all the way up 15 equals 0db.. So when setting gains on your sub-amp set the level to near 15 or 15.. At least for my european model this was the case..

Then you just drop it to suitable level if needed.. I have 13 at the moment..

Also the logic of setting time corrections is funny after pioneer...

What i must say is that this HU has awesome sound compared to my old pioneer and that makes all the difference.. Won't be going back to pioneer.. I'm more than happy..
