Too much bass

I installed the jl stealth box with a JL v2-500 amp kept the stock alpine speakers and now the bass is just too overwhelming. Wanted a little more but this is too much. Yes the amp is turned down all the way. Anything I can do to hear the words again? Replace the speakers which I would like to keep or should I get a eq with a sub designated output? Please help

Re: Too much bass

well how do you have your radio eq'd?

if you added an amp and sub, you need to turn your bass down on your radio eq, that should help a LOT if you haven't done it yet.

Re: Too much bass

So I guess I win genius of the year; the amp had a signal input switch and now it's perfect. I recommend the stealth box for that missing factor in our systems

Thanks for updating us on that. I plan on installing a JL Audio Stealthbox in mine.

Would you say the stock speakers now that they are getting more power from the stock amp?

How hard was the installation? How long did it take?

Re: Too much bass

Install took two hours by my boy long part was the fab under the rear seat. The system to me before was great just missing that deep hit. It Really is night and day and truly completes the stock system. I have yet to have the volume over 28, hurts my ears.

The stock sub was on a seperate channel and therefore has no bearing on the amount of power supplied to the other stock speakers. Therefore there should be no difference in speaker sound before or after the new sub.

What changes did you make under the rear seat? I was looking to mount my amp there this weekend as well, just wanted some incite as to what was going to be needed. Also where did you ground the amp?
