Loss of Bass

I turned my amp on today and all the bass seems to have gone from the sound reproduction. Altering the bass knob makes no discernable difference although treble does work. The only audi inputs I have are TV and CD, both of which are impacted. I have tried listening through the headphone socket and this is fine. Any help appreciated!

    Tried the separate speaker option and that seems to be the source. There is another thread about loss of bass from mission 780s (hadn't previously seen this)which seems to suggest its a known problem.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction..even if it is to a hifi shop!

Hi there, I would think that you have blown your bass drivers in the speakers. Sometime you may have a fuse which is blown in the speaker but this is not usual. Try on another speaker if you can.

Mtx tna251 amp has bass remote that has a light glowing but turn knob up and down and no difference like simply not working no difference in bass? Posible causes,


It is actually in the controller, if you turn the remote all the way down and press on the controller until the bass goes off, you will be able to turn the bass up and down with the remote, mine worked but stopped after a month, I tried adjusting the amp but then I noticed that if I wiggled the knob on the remote that it would work, I mashed mine until it worked again and velcroed it to my console sonibcan get it on and off easily.

Does anyone know how to make a bass knob remote out of phone line? What the color code? I have 4 different color wire here but i don't know what to do to make a bass knob remote.


It is NOT clear what you are trying to do... HOWEVER if you are attempting to extend a bass potentiometer remotely, you CANNOT use the four wire flat telephone line as it is unshielded and you will pick up hum.

The bass go in and out ,the sub bass knob is loose, can i fix it


Hello,

the bass nob must have worn out, that's why it cannot stay firm when you press it in.

Get something tiny like a pin, press the bass knob in, and at the same time fix in the tiny object by the side of the knob, to hold the bass knob firm, so that it will not pop out when you let go off it.

Take care.

Volfenhag amp adjustments


Firstly, you will want to set all options to a low pass, so the high frequencies are filtered away from the subs, avoiding damaging the voice coil. Start with the Gain of the amp about 3/4 of the way up, and all other knobs, such as the bass knob to the lowest setting. From there, test your subs for soujnd, and then change the gain and amount of bass for the sound you desire, since each person is different. I have my gain about 1/2 way up and the bass about 1/4 of the way up. If you have a crossover knob, set it to the highest frequency available, since the low pass will filter all the high frequencies out anyway.

Amplifiers GT Series GT5-A604 ........explain settings


the amp probably has a x-over knob, a bass boost knob, and an eq knob. the eq is probably an internal crossover switch that will take the output from either high range (tweeters) or full range (6x9s) or low pass (subs) leave it on low pass. the bass boost however, will add distortion if turned up too high. its not noticable in the car, actually it sounds louder in the car but if you open the trunk and listen, you can tell its distorted bass and actually frying your speakers. the x-over knob is used to tune the frequency at which the amp stops pushing out bass tones. if you like rock music loud, turn it up higher, if you like low deep rap bass, turn it lower. keeping it too high might give you bad sound from either type though. ALSO THE GAIN OR LEVEL.IT IS NOT TO MAKE YOUR SUBS LOUDER IT WILL BLOW THEM .the gain is used to set your amp to your head unit which there is a procedure to do it.

Fender Rumble 100 210 pop noise then hum after strong low e note


I just fixed my bass amp with a similar problem last week: the problem is related to a loose connection on the PCB board (likely).
A bass amp is a rough place for circuitry: the low rumble and power shake a bass amp more than a guitar amp.
In my case, the power transistors needed to be re-soldered and then the grounding bolts and screws needed to be removed and cleaned because the connection was bad. Remember that when two different metals needed for an electric connection are toughing, there is the likelyhood that corrosion WILL happen.
My bass amp did basically the same thing yours did: sounded good at low volumes, but at higher volumes it would act up.
In short, there is nothing you can do (unless you are a repair person): you need to take it to a local music shop and have a tech fix the intermittant contact problem: someone who knows what they are doing should only take an hour at most.

Hope that helps!

Speaker/sub bass


Hi, it is possible that the sub volume control is worn out. If your particular brand/model uses the rotary/wiper type (variable resistor) then replacing it should do the trick but this involves soldering which be done by an electronics technician or qualified to perform such repairs/replacement. Hope this helps. Cheers.
