Hey All, I have a Rockford Fosgate Power 750X (2002), that i'm trying to revive. I have it installed and running an old Boston Acoustics Rally Series 12". All old, but all sounding amazing. One thing missing is the bass knob that I had in my old car. Does anyone know anything that could help me get a new bass knob, Or wiring details to make my own! Please and thanks!
Hi All, I'm putting together a sweet 10 channel active system in a new Tesla Model 3 that's fairly complex, and I want to make sure there is a single volume and bass knob. My favorite so far is the JL Audio DRC-200 because it has both volume and bass control in one unit, but the trick is getting it to work like I want - help! There are basically two input groups (via DSP presets) going into a AudioControl DM-810 DSP. The first is the car's stock signal via high level inputs, and the second is a hi-res source via Optical. I was thinking to put a JL Audio Fix 86 before the AudioControl DM-810 so the JL unit can control volume, but that will only work for the stock signal. The Fix 86 doesn't have an optical in like the DM-810 does, so the knob won't be able to control the hi-res source like I need it to in that configuration. If I use just the DM-810 for everything, I'll have a unified volume knob by using the AudioControl ACR-3 knob but it has no bass knob (i.e. it's just one control, not two). Do you have any ideas for how I can pull off using the JL DRC-200 for everything? The closest thing I can think of will add a lot of cost, and I'd lose two output channels by going from 10 down to just 8. This would involve putting a JL Audio TwK 88 after the DM-810. That way the DM-810 could flatten factory signal (like the Fix 86 would have) for the stock signal, which the TwK 88 would then tune with its EQ. On the hi-res side, the DM-810 would tune audio and then just pass through the TwK 88 without any changes. With the TwK 88 last in the chain, I would be able to pass everything through the DRC-200 knob, but putting the TwK 88 last means I'd only have 8 output channels rather than the 10 I need coming off the DM-810. If it were possible to put the TwK 88 before the DM-810, that would be great, but there aren't any high level inputs on the DM-810. This could technically be solved if I used a Fix 86 before a TwK 88 and then the DM-810, but that seems like such a HUGE waste of money and equipment. If you could let me know any better idea to get the DRC-200 to work, I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks! -Eggz
I didn't really know quite how to title it but I wanted to know if anyone knew of amps that had this or if it was even possible. Bass boost remotes are obviously a thing and they boost certain frequency's for subs, but they also can introduce distortion, so would there be a way for some manufacturer to tie in the remote to act as sort of a slave to the amps physical boost knob. When you set gains and everything on an amp there may be some headroom to boost tones with the bass boost, but I would like to set it on the amp and whatever you set it on the amp, be ii 5db @ 45hz or whatever, have that coincide with the MAX position on the bass remote? That way the max of the knob couldn't go beyond the set distortion point, which would be really nice for protecting your system if someone else is driving your car.
