headunit sound settings
 
I saw a post on a forum last night and now I can't remember which one:confused:, and searching isn't helping.
I am looking for some good advice on how I should have my headunit set.
The post listed pretty much each setting including that the fade should be set to 2 rear and balance to 1 right.

I have always had it set to 2 rear, which makes a big difference, and 1 to the right for balance works too.

so now to set the rest. I have a pioneer primere deh-p840 headunit
stock interiors along with the stock interior amp
and a ported box with 2 audiobahn 12" subs and a 2 channel audiobahn amp (I don't have the specs with me at the moment.

the post also stated that lows should be at 0, mids at 1, and highs at 4.

now for the rest of the settings on the headunit

HPF I have choices of 50Hz, 80Hz, 125Hz, and off
Bass I can go from -6 to +6 and leave it on 40, 63, 100, or 160
Treble also -6 to +6 and leave on 2.5K, 4K, 6.3K, or 10K
Also with the subs installed its set for NonFad and I can go from -6 to +6

and equalizer has a couple presets currently I have that on vocal
other options are superbass, powerful, natural, or custom 1 or custom 2

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Every vehicle and stereo is going to be different. What one head unit does when you set the fade to 2 and what another head unit does when you set it to 2, could be two entirely different things.

That said, take all that info above and disregard.

Your HPF (high pass filter) sets the cut off point for your non sub woofer speakers (your mids and highs). Try that at either 80 or 100. See what sounds best. Do this with your sub woofers OFF.

Bass, that filter sets the low pass filter for your sub woofers. Try that at either 63 or 80. If you set your HPF (above) at 80hz, try the sub woofer at 63hz. If you set your HPF at 100hz, try the sub woofer at 80hz.

For everything else, just go through each setting and play with them. See what sounds best to you, in your car. It may take some time, but if you get it right, it can really change the way your stereo sounds.
