The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.

The pickup on my epiphone pr5 booms if i play loud, and if i tap the body anywhere it scratches and booms even with new battery


Sounds like you are using incorrect settings on the amp you are using. Try all tone controls at 12 o'clock as a start. Excess bass boost is a good way to have the problem occur. Also back off the volume control. "Handling" noise or scratching from handling the guitar is NORMAL for this type pickup. Back down the volume and DO NOT boost the highs or lows to help with the handling noise problem.

If the amp produces no boom with no signal input cables connected, I'd suggest using an LOC.

My car amp is not working right.....


  • Remove the RCA preout connections from the amp. If the problem is still there, we know it's the amp, not the head unit.
  • Check your gain settings. Set them to 50% and see if that affects the issue at all.
  • Check that your ground wire is nice and short.
  • If the issue is still there, it's possible it's internal to the amp and will need repair.

Systems shuts off if sound gets too loud.


Yes, i had this same problem. If it was too loud, at level 37+, any loud boom would shut down the subwoofer, subsequently shutting down the speakers. As such, I figured it might have been the 8 pin dim cable, but that wasn't it. What solved the problem was lowerin the BASS level. Not the level on the subwoofer, but the actual BASS level. I had it at +10 (the max) and it was too much for the system to handle. I don't think I ever had it like that so I'm assuming someone, maybe my daughters, moved the settings. But anyway, moving the bass level back down to either 0 or +3 at most maintains the "boom" effect of the subwoofer minus the shutting off of the system.
