Sound Quality Issue

I have had exceptional sound quality from this stereo up untill yesterday. It just does not have nearly the same bass or sound quality as it did. I thought it was my PC but I played a CD and still the same issue. Ensured my Max sound was on and all connections were tight but still same issue.

I have a KD R840BT in my 03 Pontiac Sunfire- I need some help as to what the settings should be at to get the best overall sound.. I don't have any subs etc in car / but I do have AM Tweeters. Ty!

Sound quality is subjective. What sounds good to me may not sound good to you. Always try to cut bass/treble settings when possible rather than boost. The best way to tine a stereo without any fancy equipment is to use a high quality copy of a song you are familiar with then adjust the settings appropriatley.

Sony how to change the bass on my sony mex bt3100u stereo

Hello Tom,

You may have to adjust the EQ7 Preset to XPLOD and then listen to the jam. Here are the instructions from the bt3100u manual:

Selecting the sound quality
- EQ7 Preset
You can select an equalizer curve from 7 equalizer curves ("XPLOD," "VOCAL," "EDGE," "CRUISE," "SPACE," "GRAVITY," "CUSTOM" or "OFF").
1 During reception/playback, press the select button.
2 Rotate the control dial until "EQ7 PRESET" appears, then press it.
3 Rotate the control dial until the desired equalizer curve appears, then press it.
4 Press (BACK).
The display returns to normal reception/play mode. To cancel the equalizer curve, repeat the first 2 steps then select "OFF" in step 3.
The equalizer curve setting can be memorized for each source.
We hope that this helps. If not please return and post how this went.

Sound bass

Laptops are notorious for poor sound performance, the issue is the speakers used on any laptop are not big enough to convey the deep rich bass some users require.

A workaround to this is to buy a good set of headphones when utilizing the sound system on a laptop.

Otherwise you need a better quality laptop; Some are made with premium sound speakers but again they too are limited due to the speaker sizes used in laptops. Not to mention the cost of getting one of these types of laptops.

My ipod nano has songs but no sounds

Step 1:
Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.

Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.

New bass that has no sound when plugged in to amp.

Rememberthe switch for the battery is ACTUALLY the sleeve of your guitar cable. If the jack fails, the battery will not be connected. Unfortunately, these jacks take a lot of abuse. The jack is really a stereo jack and the connection of the "ring" of the Tip-Ring_Sleeve (TRS) female jack to the "sleeve" connection is what grounds the battery for operation.

Mistakenly using a stereo audio cable will also cause this problem.

Use a good quality instrument cable, preferably gold plated plugs. Bad cables cause a LOT of these problems!

My Video ipod has poor quality sound. Kinda lacks bass.

If you've messed with the EQ settings and it still sounds horrible you may want to have the jack/hold switch assembly replaced. You can get a jack/hold switch assembly on eBay for around $7 for your model of iPod.
