Question about Car Audio & Video
SOURCE: bass frequncy
Also bear in mind those are crappy eq's in that zoom, personal recorders are great but aren't known for pre-amp and eq quality, etc. If you're recording at proper levels and with no eq and there's no clipping on playback either then I would say you may be tweaking the eq more than it can handle when you use it. Try not boosting freqs so much, generally anything over a 6db. boost is drastic, especially with the lousy Q of cheap eqs. Try attenuating highs instead of boosting lows so much, I'm afraid yer just gonna have to live within the limitations of the equipment or get an outboard eq in front of the D.I. box and eq it during tracking or get an external recorder for mixdown and put the eq between the zoom and mixdown recorder and eq during mixdown. Here's a little trick that may help - when mixing turn the volume way down low for a minute till you can barely hear it then turn it up a bit more and see if the balance of the highs and lows is good, it will give you a general balance wich will sound good at higher levels. Volume level when mixing affects the way we hear, the frequency response curve of the human ear is totally nonlinear, we hear freqs differently at varying levels, mix too loud and it will tend to be bass light, mix too low and it will tend to be bass heavy, the fletcher munson equal loudness contour curves wich express the ears frequency response graphically, indicate that the nearest to flat response is at 85 db. spl

Provided the rest of your system is all tuned an in proper shape, and up for the wattts, the best sound to set, starting with the low end...start with is a slightly elevated above zero (about 1/4 up from zero) then slowly gradually slope it down to 1/4 below zero in middle and then back up to 1/4 above at the high end.
The result is a gently curved V type shape.
Now, knock down the highest 2 or 3 freq bands a few clicks till they are just above zero. (1/8).
This is the curve you would shoot for with a real-time analyzer for SQ, punch and clarity.

Hi try earthing the chassis of the unit as well to ground with a wire. Sometimes units have to grounded all round. Check the inline fuses also to be sure
Best of luck
