    trouble tuning pioneer deh 80 prs

    new to the forum but have been reading them for some time now. i just upgraded my headunit to the pioneer 80 prs and im having trouble tuning it. ive read the manual and know what most of settings are ( you can change so much) but no matter what i do or have it set at the bass has that bass boosted sound (its a unhealthy sound) my gains have been set with a DMM, and bass boost is off, LPF is set around 80 on the amp. on the subwoofer setting on the head unit i have just been changing from -12 db to -3 db depending the song, never go to -0 let alone +6. ive brought to the only shop i trust and he got it sounding better but not good. i know the unit is fine but im not good enough yet. been at this for three weeks now trying to be patient but thinking about giving up. anyone have this unit and suggestions

    Is LOUD turned off? What EQ setting are you using?

    Re: trouble tuning pioneer deh 80 prs

    is it set too network or standard?. I set mine up initially in standard mode and couldnt get the exact sound I wanted, Pulled it out switched the dip switch to Network and set up auto EQ man what a difference and then if you need to loud actually works without distorting. If using the preset EQ's I found Powerful worked for most everything if you wantg to go into hood mode superbass or can never go wrong Flat. I constantly am finding new stuff on it.
    Any one else have trouble with the Tuner on theres It is super iffy with the staions in my area that normally i get 100 miles away i cant get 2 miles away clear.

    Are you running a passive comp set in network mode?

    Did you hook up remote ant wire? Some cars wtih ant in the glass have a signal booster that needs to turned on by the HU...

    Re: trouble tuning pioneer deh 80 prs

    You cant do auto eq unless in network mode . Im running mine in network with Kicker SS components but not using the passive EQ. I am running them off a 4 channell amp which the PRS sees as Mids and Highs in network.I think its my cars antenna I swapped to a stubby but I just use my ipod or phone for tuner I was just curios if it was in the local settings.I rarely listen to local music stations anyway mainly talk radio being in ther music industry I cant stand hearing the crtap I play every night in a cover band but perks kick a**

    Do you have the subwoofers set to mono and not stereo?
    do you have the slope on?
    what volume are you turning the 80prs up to?
