Hey guys,
I noticed that when I turn my volume up that the lyrics keep getting louder, but the bass stops... Is this normal and is there any way to fix it? Thanks..

I have my bass turned up all the way and when i crank it up the bass doesnt get any louder after about 3/4 volume. At that point i think the bass is maxed out. If you dont know how to adjust your bass and treble here you go. Push the sound button on your dash and that should bring that stuff up. Its as easy as that. I hope this helps you out. You just have to remember you are dealing with the factory speakers. If you want more bass you need better speakers.

Read the info page for the MTX re-Q, they explain how factory systems actually limit the bass output at high volumes to keep from blowing your factory speakers. If you want more bass, you're going to need an amplifier and some better speakers, no way around it. The option is also there if you want to get a sound processor and external EQ, but you would likely get more from upgrading the actual equipment.

I have noticed that the speakers break in and will provide a LOT more bass after you work them for awhile. The PO of my car must not have ever cranked the stereo as when I first got the car I cranked the bass up and left it there - after hours of loud ass rock music I find myself turning the bass down 1 or 2 clicks. My rear view mirror and driver's door mirror noticeably vibrate with the music - I'm actually a little surprised.

Having said that - I've got a 4x100 and two 1x300 amps going in to power new door speakers and subs :)

Haha thanks guys my main concern was that when I got my system that the bass wouldn't be limited.
