How do I use the remote to cont bass & treble for rxv-657 reeiver

Is there a way to control the bass & treble tone controls using the remote control?
I have looked in the manual and can not find any such commands. The only way that i can control the tone controls is by pushing the "tone control" button on the face of the receiver and then using the knob to adjust.
I am trying to program a Harmony One universal remote and want to be able to be able to adjust the bass & treble using the universal remote.
Thanks!

No, Tone controls are on the front of the unit only. If your passing video thru the unit you can go into the setup menu from the harmony and adjust all the sound parameters that way "on screen" The only "EQ" capabilities are for the Center channel only. You can adjust "speaker size". "Large" setting will give you a little lower response. "Small" will crossover the speaker at "100hz" That's about as far as tone adjustment goes on this unit. Hope this helps

I have Kenwood 106vr receiver, still working but lost remote control. Is there other way to adjust the BASS & TREBLE directly in the unit?


Hello
Not possible to adjust the tone without the remote.
if you have the possibility for a universal remote like "Logitech" remotes its Recommended for such cases, that will be easier for you to control the the AVR system.

My amp turns on good but after a while of too much bass causes a ugly sound too loud what could it be? Can it be repaired?


If you have over driven the amp by playing it real loud with the bass control turned up, it is very possible that you have toasted the output stages of amp.
Every time you boost a tone control by 3 db you have doubled the output power at that frequency. So if you are "coasting" along at a nominal 75 watts, the moment you boost the bass by 3 db the amp has to put out 150 watts at that low frequency.. Go to +6db and now the poor amp has to kick out 300 watts! And so on.

Rule of thumb - you never use your tone controls at very loud levels. Tone controls are there to compensate for the poor frequency response of the human ear at low volume levels - the Fletcher Munsen effect. At low volumes our hearing with the lows and high frequencies so when you play something at low volume you boost up the bass and treble to compensate for poor hearing. At loud volumes our ears respond properly.

Bass treble


Tone control circuitry is not working. Also check to see if there is a switch on the receiver that renders those controls useless.

In most of the Amplifiers we have only Bass and Treble control (Bass works on 100 HZ and Treble works on 10KHz - approximately). In some Amplifiers we have Mid range control also. What is the frequency...


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.

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.

Yamaha AX-596 Integrated Amplifier only works when using either of the two "Pure Direct" buttons. The Bass, Treble, & Balance controls do not function. It would appear that circuit board or the circuit...


Chances are that the tone control pre-amp circuit is faulty. These days the functions are all done by a single IC. Find that and you will more than likely have found the culprit. If there are any of the controls for bass etc on the front pannel, trace the wiring back from them. If not have a look around on the PC board in area that you suspect (some boards are marked as 'tone' etc). If you see any IC's put the number into google and you might find out what each does. Keep doing it till you find one that deals with tone etc.

I have a Wurlitzer 3500. Where is the tone


I am not sure but I think there are two switches on the amp, with three positions, which you flick up or down a notch for louder or lower bass and treble. They should be quite clearly labeled.

Cinemate bose how do I adjust base and trebble


If the system doesn't have controls labeled "bass" and "treble" - or if there are no clever presets like "Hall", "Theater", etc., then you'll have to adjust these parameters before the signal reaches the speakers. One way is to purchase a graphic equalizer to hook between the speakers and the signal source. A graphic equalizer a basically a tone control, with the spectrum divided into 10 or more "slices" instead of 2 (bass and treble). Consider the sliders on the left as "bass", and the ones on the right as "treble". If you're using these speakers for a computer, some sound card software has these controls buried beneath a few menus - but sometimes not. The easiest solution is to buy an equalizer and hook it between the signal source and speakers. Bose is typically "audiophile" equipment, and many audiophiles don't want tone controls (thus the extra electronic processing required) to contaminate the signal. Obviously, most systems do need to offer some control to the user, as you've discovered!

GETTING BETTER SOUND QUALITY


An equaliser is, put simply, a more complex tone control, giving you the ability to cut or boost more specific frequencies than a tone knob, or bass & treble controls.

It comes in handy for tweaking the sound from your hi-fi to just the way you like it. But beware, as it can make your hi-fi produce sounds that are so bass or treble heavy, that you can damage your speakers if you're not careful.

Adding another compnent into the chain (like a graphic EQ) can add a little background noise but this Technics EQ is a pretty quiet one & you probably won't notice the noise apart from when there's no music playing & you've got the amp turned up high.
