alpine equalizers SUCK

im sure some of you guys have alpines might be able to chime in

im downloading the manual right now but figured id hit you guys up for answers too

1. how do i adjust the bass / trebel / etc

2. under subwoofer control, it only goes 0 to +15 ... my old kenwood went -15, 0, +15 ... is that just how alpines are?

3. Any of you guys got a trim piece lying around you want to mail me?

OK THIS THING ****IN SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my music doesnt sound right at all no matter what i do im used to the bass going thru the subs and the subs being louder than the system ... like before with my kenwood when i turned it up i had a lot of bass but the speakers didnt sound like they were gonna bleed if that makes sense ....

hopefully i can talk the guy i sold my kenwood kdc-4032 into trading me for this alpine that i got a while back that i figured was gonna be BETTER that replaced it.

Melt... when you scroll through your options when you get to bass or treble there are a few is like 4 different settings. Play around with them until you get it figured out.

There is also another bass and treble setting that you have to set too.

Relax and play around with the thing until you figure out the sound you want. It will give it to you.

aight well now i have the sound figured out but it seems like every now and then i go to start the truck and all i have is subs, so i hit the eq and it loses all my settings .... like the internal amp is cutting off or something, only when i start the truck after its sat though, yesterday i drove 3 hours with the system up and no overheating or anything

i know its not the memory wire cause i dont lose my presets or anything else just the eq for some reason.
