View Full Version : How to turn off the bass?

Hi, I was wondering how to turn off the bass completely for my four Polk Audio DB571 speakers.

My deck is a Pioneer Premier DEH-P510UB

Pioneer USA - DEH-P510UB - Premier™ CD Receiver with Full Motion OEL Display and USB Direct Control of iPod, Bluetooth Ready (http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Support/CarAudioVideo/In-Dash/CD-Players/ci.DEH-P510UB.Support)

The reason why I want to do this is because I'm fine with the amount of bass I'm getting from my 12" Sub.

Thanks! :)

you need a high pass crossover on the speaker outputs.

Turn off bass? I don't think I understand this concept

Turn your high pass filter on set it at 120hz

really? a high pass filter is what he wants and it's built into the deck. if not, high pass filters, called "bass blockers" would work.

i disagree with the 120Hz setting - you want midbass from your door speakers. 80Hz is a good setting if the bass isn't turned up on the HU eq.
