The record deck is played through a separate pre-amp to all other functions, so it therefore could be a fault in that pre-amp, but I doubt it. You can fit a wide verity of cartridges in record decks that will each give a different response to the sound. But first check that the cartridge connections are correct. Try swapping them around, it might change what you get. But it could simply be that you have a cartridge that produces a lot of bass. Changing the cartridge to a high quality recommended type - by say some hi-fi buffs website or magazine, might solve the problem.

Pioneer Pl990 turntable sounds awful.... I have a pioneer pl 990 record player connected to a pioneer amplifier and a sony CD player. when I play an LP, the sound is bass heavy and I can hardly hear t


When the turntable plays, do you get a howling bass heavy sound? Have you tried turning down the volume and bass? If that corrects the problem, you have what's known as Acoustic Feedback. Check to make sure the tonearm is properly set up first. If it is, please visit my website at Audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

I have a Alpine CDA 7892 CD head unit I just installed and the radio works perfect but when I play a cd it sounds very muffled and I can hear bass only. Is the unit bad?


If the sound is coming out clearly with the radio on, then there is a problem with the cd drive or its connections. If your stereo has aux. inputs, you could run an mp3 player until your ready to replace it.

The amps frequency setting is on LP (low pass) only playing bass so you have to put it on FR( Full Range) all frequency's and you'll get your sound back.

Fuzzy sound when instrument being played


The 1/4" output on your bass needs to be resoldered in 1 or more places. It's very common.

Perfect ten bass amp, guitar


can you use headphones? if so do they sound normal. probably have bad filter caps. 2200uf caps big ones, go bad and lose their capacitance and cant process the low end notes, sounds like a motorboat or ******* out. speaker may have issues as well. get the caps from mouser.com and careful of stored voltage on the capacitors it is deadly....... those caps are less than 2 bucks each.

Sound output


hmmmmm is the CD scratched? if you transfer it to the computer, then to the MP3 and the CD is scratched then it comes out all wonky but if the CD is scratched then just ignore it, and heres how you can tell that its the CD not the MP3 ;
some songs are not scratched if all were scratched then the MP3 doesn't work properly.

and thats it
