    Adjusting the bass and treble on a 9887

    I have a new Alpine 9887 w/o imprint. Ive been fiddling with the settings for the last week or so and cant seem to find a way to adjust the bass or treble. Ive read the manual and followed its instructions but the settings dont seem to be there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    if im not mistakken you cannot adjust "bass/treble" without the imprint kit, once you have set up with the imprint your settings for audio are limited to bass and treble

    do you know if theres any way (short of imprint) to improve the sq? the majority of my music is nearly incomprehensible because the treble is really low.

    Re: Adjusting the bass and treble on a 9887

    your gonna have to sit in your car and spend time setting xover points on the graphic or parametric eq on the deck. i bought this unit at the end of december, and whne i had to set all my eqs and such i absolutly hated the deck, it will take time, esspecially if your previous deck had a limited amount of eq options. give it some time more people that have better knowledge on this deck will chime in to help

    On my 9885 you push in the volume knob. Takes you to a different setting each time you push it and you turn the knob up/down to make the adjustment. I don't know about the 9887. Seems to be quite a bit different between the two.

    when you push the knob, there is fader/balance, subwoofer, and defeat.

    9885 has treble and bass also. I guess Alpine wants you to get the imprint with the 9887.

    you bought the wrong deck if you want simple.

    9887 is the opposite of simple.

    if you want bass and treble you should buy cda-9886 it has the bass/ treble controls.

    Re: Adjusting the bass and treble on a 9887

    you dont need to fiddle with bass treble constantly when your system is set up.
    i had 9833 that has same bass engin pro and i had no problem with bass or treble

    if you do have an issue with it then check yor recordings
    and MP3 quality, it affects the sound more than your EQ

    The navigation on this HU is not very intuitive but once you figure it out its not so bad. It has a 7 Band graphic EQ or a 5 band parametric EQ. I prefer the Parametric EQ personally. IIRC you press the "A. Sel" button and cycle through the menu options until you get to the audio adjustments

    One I got my 9887, I was overwhelmed, too. It took a while(alomost two months), but onece I got the hang of the deck I became unstopable. I can not imagine like without this deck lol.


    How do those Mach5 mids keep up with you 2 12s? How many mids you running?

    You are correct, the "simple" bass/treble adjustment functions are "locked out" until you perform the Imprint. You can make adjustments through the EQ though.
