Make sure you have the yellow wire is hooked up to a constant source, like your head lights, if you don't those settings won't get stored.

When i change stations on my radio it changes all the settings on bass and tremble on my 2007 grand prix?


Hi Nick,

Your radio might save the bass & treble settings with each station. Try choosing a station, set the bass, treble and any other variables (mid-range, etc.) and then SAVE the station to a button. Do this for all of the buttons / stations you like.

If this doesn't solve the problem, tell us about the radio (AM/FM/Cassette/CD and Factory or aftermarket - in which case we'll need to know the make and model of the radio.

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound


There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

I am trying to adjust the bass and treble in the bass focus and t-adjust but it keeps reseting.I don't have the manual and I would like to know how to lock the settings in so I don't have to keep on...


If they reset when you turn off the radio (or the car) it is possible that you have connected the power wiring wrong. There are two 12v (+) wires. One that connects all the time to the power block (fuse block) and that one supplies continuous power to the radio unit and another that connects to the ON-OFF (ussually controlled by the Start Up Key) power side of the fuse block. If these are not connected correctly the radio re-sets everytime the key is turned of. One way to verify this is to check if yo loose your selected raio stations too.
Hope it helps.

I have a jvc car stereo , doesnt keep the bass and treble settings but keeps the radio stations , any ideas ?


I have a JVC deck and only way to accept the setting is to hit the volume button to accept the setting, if I don't it won't keep the setting.

I think you might have a failure of a memory retention capacitor. These are small odd looking capacitors that store voltage for memory chips.
Look for something like this:

Stored settings and auto eject


Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
