    High- Low Frequency & Low- Low Frequency?

    So I have my new system set up. It sounds great! One problem though, when I play music, those "low beats" hit pretty hard. But when it comes to those high lows they are kinda weak.

    Is there anyway I can mess with the amplifier or lpf settings to even them out?

    *I will check back in tomorrow hopefully I get some help:-)

    That will depend upon the sub and enclosure as well... What are you running? IE: HU, Speakers, Amp(s), Sub(s) Enclosure Type, Size & Tuning If Ported???

    It's a ported 12' 300w rms subwoofer enclosure tuned to 32-35 hz. Running at 2ohms. Connected to an aftermarket head unit.
    Mmmh, amp is also being rated at 300 rms. Anything else? Lol Oh and it's a Kenwood mp245.

    Ported boxes lose a lot of high frequency output, and with low power like that it's going to be really apparent.

    Re: High- Low Frequency & Low- Low Frequency?

    Set the LPF frequency on your amp to like 80-100hz-ish, NO BASS BOOST if your amp has it, and adjust your gain accordingly... Whatever your results: are all that particular setup is going to play...

    What frequencies do you consider "high-lows"?

    [QUOTE=IonRL205;8397196]This[/QUOTI would consider "high- lows" sort of like just regular high frequency bass notes. Hard to explain. Lol.
