Taramps EQ Bass: PCB & Components


Recommended Posts

Nice bass knob upgrade,  the limiter is an interesting function, with such analog audio processors it was popular to upgrade op amps to high end ones, unhappily with the use of surface mount chips, its a little more impractical to swap them, still the TL074s  it has are decent ones.

 

Let us know how you liked it.

I forgot to share what happened 3 days later.  Pop, crackle, smoke went my SMART 5 after 3 months. I can accept that . I never could get the bass to sound right anyway, the reason I bought the gay EQ bass. I wasnt even pushing it, I was leaving the car wash and embarrassed to. Thats probably irrelevant anyways. Certainly it was my abuse that lead up to this over time. So after squirting purple cleaner through the side vent , I was excited to get it home and pop the cover off to see if it could tell a story of its demise...

 

however, I dont have enough experience with board repair to to make sense of the missing legs, solder blobs or lifted pads. It looks like a sloppy mess wimpy  components. I determined it irreparable. But the authorized repair guy  Resilient sounds recommended said otherwise. So I  threw another $60 into it and shipped to him only to tell me 2 months later its irreparable....🤬 🍭

Why didnt you try enclosure changes instead of EQ's for the bass amp? The enclosure is by far the biggest component to dictating how the subwoofer will sound.
