View Full Version : Pioneer Tuning Help

10-11-2008, 11:28 AM
I have a DEH-6700MP. I listen to CD-R mostly, between 128 and 192kbs.

Here are my settings, please tell me if I am going wrong somewhere, but I love the sound now, just wondering if I am getting the most outt of it.

Low -1 to +1 (varies) at 40/2W
Mid +2 at 1k/2W
High +2 at 10k/2W

Bass 100 -5
Treble 2.5k +2

Loud - Mid

Sub - Normal 80 +3

HPF 125hz

SLA +2

I listen to rap/country mostly, love the deep lows, but must have decent SQ. Is there a way that I can increase the overall volume of my system without introducing distortion? Most people I know are running volume at 50+, however I only run 30-35/62. Any higher and it gets kinda funny, not distorted, but funny?

Turn the Loudness and SLA setting to Off and 0. I have a Pioneer p470mp, and I know the 'funny' sound you're talking about. Turn those down and see if it helps.

dont mean to thread jack but what is the SLA setting for? should i leave it at zero?

SLA is source level adjustment. to make the CD as loud as the FM.

I have tried turning loud off by itself, with no other tuning, but I dont like the sound then, it's kinda flat. I really need to amp my mids/highs. And I have the amp on my kid's bed. And plenty of wire.

Bump again, please review my settings, and give advice on tuning so that I may get the most out of my system.

try setting your HPF at 80 or 100Hz thats where i keep mine.

The sound aint from lack of midbass, but an overall funniness to it when volume is past 35, not a distortion, just a muddiness.
