    Thank you for your comment that a car sub cannot be use in a bass cabinet. However, can you explain why it does not work and if there is any way to make it work.

In a speaker, there really is no pos or neg- there is however phase- that is the concern of the given that a speaker is a in/out kind of thing so that where two or more speakers are gathered together there is phase in the midst of them...they all do the in/out thing together. Also keep in mind it's AC. Use the colors of the wire leads as a reference to the other speakers leads- meaning -one can reffer to either lead as pos or neg as long as any other speaker on that system had the same wir

The high E string dont sound as brightly as the rest of the strings when plugged. I already changed the strings several times with different brands. still the same problem. only the first string sounds...

This is likely a problem with the amp you are using. Turn the treble up higher. If the amp is intended for a bass guitar, it probably can;t handle the highs of the E string. In that case get an amp that has a smaller speaker or one that is intended for Keyboards that has the capability.

This bass squels if you have a bass head and cabinet. i had a 100W amp and it played fine then upgraded to a head/cab. tryed playing it with loud volume, squels. anyway to fix this?

Turn down the treble gain and mid gain... you don't need it for a bass. Prevent the guitar from "hearing" the output of the amp directly. The guitar strings make a good microphone.

Takamine eg523sc... the bass string (6th) is about 30% less in volume as the other strings what could i do to correct this problem?

You should take this to a guitar shop for setup. If you have correct strings on there the other thing is to check any EQ of whatever you run this into... If the amp can't handle the real low bass, it MAY appear to be a guitar problem but in fact is an inadequate frequency response at the low end in the amp and speaker.

ALSO some people believe it or not get deaf in the low range if they have damaged their ears when young. Procure a sound meter to VERIFY the sound intensity level... You may find the level is the same for the different strings.

The weak spot for bass is the SPEAKER in the amp.

Bass strings are too loud in comparison to treble strings whe played through the amp

Adjust this using the EQ on the amp and to a lesser extent the tone controls on the guitar.

Often people boost the bass way up causing this problem.

How to get a fat and clear sound from schecter

Ninety percent of what you want depends on the amp and speaker you are using.

You likely will want a 15 inch speaker in a bass cabinet to start with and a decent midrange driver as well.

No amount of EQ will fix an audio system that just can't put out the bass tones.

When playing notes on the A string I get a crackeling noise

Just a thought:

If you used the speakers with another amp and they still make noise when you play certain frequencies, then it is obviously a problem with the speakers or the cabinet - it could be a mechanical resonance in some part of a speaker / cabinet, something like a loose screw or a nut, loose protection mesh on the speakers that resonates at certain frequencies, possibly a bad speaker or a speaker membrane...

Also, you might want to check the pickups on your guitar, see if the pickup core slug under the A string is much closer to the string than the other slugs so it is either picking up too much signal and distorting it or the string might be touching the slug when you play it and cause noise, also see if the string is touching something else when it vibrates...

good luck

Fender Jazz Bass E string saddle vibrates down

Hi Mike,

If the sound is like a string vibrating against something, ensure that is not strings (usually G) vibrating against the bridge.

Ensure that the two screw on the saddle are well in place.

Ensure also that the vibration is not coming from a string vibrating against the frets, in that case you can fix the problem by adjusting the action and rectifying the bow of the neck.

In either case, if the sadde and neck bow are cause of vibration, try tweaking the saddles a little, and lowering the position of the saddle a bit downward. Try also to rectify the neck. turning the apposite screw.
