Question about Philips FWC527 CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Bass volume I've had this system for years and still haven't been able to solve this problem. Haha, the bass is ridiculously loud, it's nice some of the time but when i just wanna chill it wakes up the neighbors below me. I know to turn off the max sound, etc. Is there any other way to turn down the bass?

As soon as either the bass or main unit is powered on the bass immediately begins humming loudly. Has anyone had success in fixing this?

This is sometimes a bad connection on the bass boost or it could be bad capacitor in the power supply, since you did not post the make and model we have no idea where to start

I have the MHC-GX9000 and Im not sure what settings to place my EQ levels at? The mid, the low and the high? Any kind of help here will be appreciated! I've been adjusting it for two days and I...

  • It's all by ear. Every person is different. I like to turn the low up all the way. That's the base. I turn the highs almost all the way up and the mid levels midway between the middle and all the way to the top. above midway. This makes it loud with bass and the high pitch of a tweeter so you can hear the words and instrumentals and the mid levels can be heard still. This is best served for rock and rap. Classical and jazz you want the highs all the way up and the mid levels about midway and the lows about half way between all the way and midway. this make it loud but puts the emphasis on the instrumentals.

Regards, Tony

Hi, do you know if you can adjust the bass on a Sharp xl-hp505 micro component system (other than the preset settings)? I find the bass too loud. Thank you so much.

The manual mentions a couple of things that could account for excess bass, one being the Extra Bass button (X-Bass indicated on front); the other being the ROCK setting, which boosts bass.

Placement of the speakers relative to the room surfaces and the listening position can affect their perceived bass response. Experiment. Corners and close wall reinforce the bass, moving the speakers out from them would lessen it.

My left speaker is loose

The symptom you are describing is exactly what is known as a "BLOWN" speaker or the voice coil has "shorted", this is caused from the volume being up to loud, heating up the voice coil and frying it, in the future if the bass/sound is distorted then turn the volume down just enough to stop the distortion and this will save the speaker.
As far as getting a replacement speaker, you will have to contact the manufacture to get a replacement.
Good Luck !

No display and Thump and static from bass

The poor display is a known problem.. see my other posts for the cure. As for the thump..a slight one isn't uncommon... but static?- you mean crackling? from the cubes? all of them? unplug the audio leads from the head unit to the bass and see if it stops..then you can narrow it down a bit.

My left speaker to my Sony HCD-GX450 stereo is

Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.

greetings. Unless the unit has a bass volume control on the sub itself the only way to lower the bass settings is through the built in eq and or dsgx settings (similar to a bass boost)
good luck and please rate
