View Full Version : Bass Blockers-

06-15-2003, 05:36 PM
I have a pioneer deck running a pair of audioart mids. They got pretty loud, but the bass was killing them. Everyone said bassblockers would make it worse, but, hey, $5 is worth a shot. So i went to my local store, got them and hook them up, and i was shocked how they sounded. They sounded so sweet with my tweets. So now i can really crank it and they stay clear. By the way, they were the 100hz ones

Who said bass blockers would make it sound worse??

I'm glad they're working for you. Sometimes they're not enough to adequately protect your speakers though so don't go nuts with the bass eq. I killed 2 nice sets of 3.5's even with 150 Hz bass blockers.

What's the slope like on the bass blockers?

Bass blockers = FMOD?

Bass blockers = FMOD? No. FMOD's are line level, and have 2 elements (cap and inductor). 12dB / octave.

I'm gonna add a 4.5 mH inductor to my 3.5's to increase the slope. Don't wanna fry another Boston...
