    any know what the best set up is on a 31 62 125 250 500 1 2 4 8 16 equalizer to get maximum bass? using the soundmax control panel and there's no treble,bass etc. etc. settings

    if it is in that order then i would imagain the bass would be over on the left hand side .. eg:
    --
    -- --
    -- -- --
    -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --- --
    31 62 125 250 500 1 2 4 8 16

    that wold be the setings for very high bass and very low treble if that makes sense


    edit: that setting would sound terrible,

    Do your speakers not have a bass level control, that's the easiest way to up the bass without making it sound awful.

    you sound like someone who doesn't care whether it sounds like good bass or just buzzes all day as loud as it can.

    If that's the case just crank the sliders on the left all the way up

    Left is low frequency (bass)
    Middle is mid frequency (midrange)
    Right is high frequency (treble)

    Play around and enjoy butchering good sound at the sake of booming bass. :)

    ahah actually even though both are really fine, I'd like to have phat bass, along with good quality bass at the same time. I guess I'll just play around a bit untill I find what's right, now that I know which is which. Thanks

    oh and when you say left is bass mid is mid and right is treble do you mean

    Bass= 31, 62
    Mid= 125, 250, 500
    Treble= 1 2 4 8 16

    I would say bass goes to as low as the 250...

    More or less 31, 62, 125 is bass with 250 being between bass/midrange

    500, 1, 2, 4 I'd give mid ranger with 8 / 16 being the treble

    Just keep all the sliders in the middle (at neutral) and crank one to max and you'll see what area it enhances. :)
