Re: my 901's doesn't sound as they supouse to
I doubt that poor positioning kill the bass response in any home environment. After all, how far from a wall can you be in a typical living room? I imagine if you placed them several YARDS from any corner (like in the middle of your yard) they may start to sound bass-shy. The Bose 802 is essentially the same and yet you see professionals using them well out from the walls in a dance hall or stage.
Bose 901's are part of a SYSTEM that includes an Active Equalizer.
Are you employing the REQUIRED Bose Active Equalizer and is it installed properly? It applies very steep boost at the extremes to compensate for limitations of the full-range drivers. It is not an option to skip it, unless you want NO BASS.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The low in side jack has a lower vol. but should only be1/4 less than the high in jack on most amps, --try this,-- plug guitar in high in then take all the treble off and 1/2 mid. range bring up bass range and if you have equauzation bring down 26k 5k 10k about 2 notches or points. See if that give you better bass tone.
If your head unit has an amp gain, turn it up as high as it will go. If it is hooked up to subs, the head unit will say subwoofer output in the menu. Then take a small screwdriver and turn the amp gain on the side of your amp counterclockwise to zero. Turn your freq. up to about a third. Crank your system up, with a song with good bass, and slowly turn your gain up till the bass from the subs sound distorted, and back it back down. If the bass is drowning out the other speakers in your car, then turn the gain down some more. I find it works best if you have your trebble up high, your mid range at a little less than half. And your bass at zero or one. Your amp is cranking up the bass, so let your other speakers handle the rest. This allows it to sound clearly at higher volumes.
What you're looking for is called a "crossover". A crossover is an electronic filter for an audio or speaker circuit. In an audio circuit, a crossover is used to prevent or pass certain frequencies or a range of frequencies from passing through it. Since your sub will reproduce the bass or low frequencies, you don't want other speakers to reproduce them. A band pass filter on your door speakers will do this for you. A band pass filter passes only a range or "band" of frequencies and blocks those that are above and below the range or band of frequencies selected. Installing a band pass filter will prevent the very high & very low frequencies from getting to the door /dash speakers. Likewise, you should consider connecting a low pass filter to your subs, too. The low pass filters work a little differently from of the way band pass filters work - they only allow low frequencies to get to the sub - blocking all the other higher frequencies (your other speakers are better suited to reproduce those). Lastly, you would install a high pass filters on tweeters. Tweeters are designed to reproduce only the high frequencies - sending mid and low frequencies to them is wasting power and can cause damage to them.
You purchase the filters for specific crossover points (the block / unblocked point) as determined by the individual speakers. If a sub has a frequency response of 20Hz - 100Hz, a low pass filter of 100Hz would be ideal. Remaining filters would need to begin at 100Hz - assuming the mid-range speakers have a frequency response beginning at 100Hz. A band pass filter of 100Hz - 3KHz would fit the bill nicely if the mid-range speakers go up to 3Khz Match the high end of the band pass to the high end of the frequency response of the mid-range speakers. Next, a high pass filter at 3KHz would allow only the high frequencies to your tweeters. Basically, you want to have the entire audible range 20Hz - 20KHz covered by the speakers and have the crossover points that match the frequency response ranges of the speakers.
yes it is however the hookup for it requires something a bit unorthodox
you have 4 outputs (bridgeable)
channel 1 and 2 must be bridged (to lower the ohms) then connected to the 2 6X9 in Parallel.. this must then be set to the high pass frequency (eliminates bass) lower all the settings as low as possible then turn them up slightly to increase volume to a level where its the hardest and clean sounding..lower volume after
this eliminates the bass and keeps the 6x9 pushing your mid range and high range frequency
now you have 2 channels remaining,, set 3 and 4 to low pass and connect each 12" to an individual channel. (this keeps the bass and ohms high so you will get a clean bass to match with mids and high's. Dont set or bridge for a low bass as it will jam out the 6x9 and your music will sound terrible.
so there u have a simple hookup that will work and keep you sounding clean. remember not to raise the volume on the 6X9 too much as you will blow them..
If all are in 12 o'clock position they are "flat" (nothing has been added or subtracted foam input signal) If you only have bass & treble, yes adjusting will affect "mids" but Mids change can go both ways dependent on increase or decrease of Bass and /or treble. By increasing bass you will pull some mids up also. By increasing treble you'll subtract some mids.
The frequency of mid range control is about 1KHz. The bass and treble are usually enough to set the tone of sounds and music, and if the customer has high quality speakers connected to the amplifier it is almost unnecessary to modify any tone. In my opinion you are right that x-band equalizer became less important now. Thank you. gylacz
The drum has usable frequencies and harmonics out to at least 3KHz so plan on 5KHz.
I would use a Shure SM57 and you MIGHT find it necessary to have one at each end since this is a two headed drum. position the mics pointing at the ends or slightly angled but clear of the hands. If you put them off to the side you may not get quite the sound you want. Set the EQ controls to pass all low frequencies and the mid range up to 5 KHz as flat and reduce the highs above 5KHz to avoid some of the brushing noise of the hands.
Note that the room acoustics and your sound system may play a GREAT part in how it sounds.
kicker subs arnt ment to hit the lowest bass, unless you go spend a **** load of money, im talking 3000 wat amp, ant some 15' or bigger subs. the most commen kickers are 12' subs, so im asuming you have 12' subs, if not, this (said lightly) should work. try turning the bass boost screw on the amp to the middle of its turning range. this will offer the greatest balance between high and low bass. if you want more low bass, turn it past half. if you want more high bass, turn it down. i have mine set to mid range, but i also recently purchased 2 18' kickers. with every new set of subs, you should spend at least 15 min tuning the amp to get the best performance. every sub is different. hope this helps, good luck.
