Lowering bass tone control

The bass is much too boomy for my taste. (It got much boomier after I got cable and go thru the dvd player first.) I want to lower it as much as possible. The manual says to press the TONE key to select TONE mode and then choose bass or treble for adjustment. Pressing the TONE key repeatedly only shows the OFF position and whatever input is on (like AUX or radio). I cannot get the TONE key to show TONE and ON in the window, so I can't even get to the treble/bass adjustment phase.
Is there any way I can get rid of the boomy bass?????

The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.

SOURCE: Can't get into AUX source

Are you sure it is an AUX input? According to the Manufacturers Specs, the AUX, is an optional accessory. There is a Pre-Amp connection, which would be an output, hence causing the problem you are having. Best of Luck.

SOURCE: mp3 to aux input

Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.

SOURCE: I can't use my ipod.. pressed SCR and only tuner and standby is displayed

Yes i had a very similar problem.

I have the MP-235. I could not edit my clock, my subwoofer settings werent active, and I could not switch to AUX.

If you have these problems, you have to hold down the menu button (bass boost) to enter the menu. then scroll around, turn AUX on, change the clock, etc etc.

You turn demo mode off the same way. Kinda silly how they have it all set up.

Hope that helps anyone in the future. i just wasted 3 hrs with this crap!

Too much base


But bass is that characteristic sound that Bose is known for....
That said, I agree with you Kathy. These sets can be a little on the boomy side. You do not say what model you have, but as a rule, these radios do not have tone controls. The later versions do have a "talk radio" mode that you can select, and this does affect the tone settings. I can't remember it increases or decreases the bass level, but whatever it does, it is substantial. Give this a try if you have a later version of the radio. Also, placement of the radio has a big effect on frequency attenuation. If you want to decrease the bass level, move the radio away from the wall...., certainly don't put it in a corner (two walls increase the bass level), and get it up off the ground (if it is near the floor... which acts like a "third" wall).

Hope this helps.

Tip

Tip for your home theater system: tweak your subwoofer level and crossover...


An important tip regarding your home theater system is to Tweak subwoofer-level and crossover controls:
Test tones and meters aren't the final arbiters in the bass department. If your sub's bass is boomy, thick, or uneven, first try lowering its volume --most people complain that their sub louder than necessary. Next, if your satellites are very small, the crossover control should also be set to its midpoint or higher. Bigger speakers produce more bass on their own, so they sound best with the sub's crossover knob set at or near the bottom of its range. Finally, moving the sub out of the corner and closer to one of the front speakers may produce smoother, flatter bass.

How to adjust tone settings manually for my LG LHT743 DVD receiver? I have several preset settings but no Bass, trebal control


I did some research on this, but was unable to find out how to adjust bass and treble control individually. this is a link to the users manual (not sure if you have or not). You can download it if you like. I did, read through it, and didn't find anything to solve your issue. Unfortunately, this is a common setup for a lot of newer sound systems. Since they are digital, to achieve superior performance, they keep the settings digital and dont allow for fine tuning of the lower and upper frequencies (bass and treble).

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.

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


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

Brutus 1206D


set the lp filter to about 100 to 125 (or lower if want seep boomy only) , put the bass eq no more than 75% but i would recommend no more than 50%, gain is to match the sound not to adjust power with so it is a user preference start all the way down and slowly go up till u hear distortion then turn it back down by about 10 - 15 %, phase shoild typically be at 0 degrees, subsonic depends on if you r using sealed or ported ported turn it all the way down then adjust as needed to get rid of the lower sounds you dont want (muddy sloppy sounding bass) if sealed turn it all the way up to at least 35 hz.

Hi fingers 1

There will be some overlap in bass response that you may need to tune out to tone down the boomy bits. You could tune this out with a 31 band EQ Another approach is to use a crossover or low pass filter to the subs to get some control over your bass frequencies. Another thought, if you're using the rig for stage work, how does it sound out the front. It may be standing waves created by the bass bins, moving them to different monitoring positions may also help.
