    Good EQ Setting, Little Bass?

    I have the Pioneer Fhx700bt and I want to set it to where I have little to no bass. Only because when I turn the volume up high, my 6x9s hit hard and sound terrible. So I want to be able to have it at a high volume wit little bass so it sounds good. I would also like it like that so when I have subs, the bass only comes from the subs. What is a good setting for a Custom EQ Setting with the 5 band equalizer?

    This is what a high pass filter is for. Check your manual and turn it on.

    Do you have an amp for the speakers? Set your high pass filter a little on the high side if you don't want much bass coming from them (around 125-150hz). Set your low pass filter on the sub amp at or below 80hz. In my opinion you should leave the settings on the head unit flat (0 treble, 0 bass, 0 midrange etc)

    Another way to cut bass is to cut the bass on the EQ. In a broad sense it's the same as cutting it with a high pass filter, although we know it's not acting exactly the same. You of course would not do that if there's a subwoofer in the system. There's no reason to leave the head unit flat if the system needs some help. If the treble is too bright, cut the treble.

    hpf!



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    I have a Subwoofer Phase setting for my 6x9s. It can be normal, reverse, or off. But hot still let's me get a little out of my 6x9s so they aren't useless.
