    Speaker setup question...

    Ok so I had my new Infinity Components installed in the front, and 4 inch infinitys stuck in the back. I've got a small problem though...

    For some reason the rear speakers are BASS heavy, and the front speakers/tweeters sound more 'tinny' or trebly. When switch the fade to the front, the OEM sub/amp goes very quiet, and when I fade to the back, the sub goes louder. Is there something on the OEM sub that I can adjust to fix this??

    Thanks!

    The sub is probably connected through your rear speakers which could explain why it grows quiet when you fade to the front.

    Is this normal? My front speakers sound inferior, bass-wise, to the rears.

    There should be some midbass coming from your components, but ideally, the sub should handle the low frequencies.

    My guess would be to find the right balance of bass using the fader.

    Agreed, but it's my sub AND my rear speakers doing bass, and NOTHING from the fronts apart from mid/highs.

    Have you tried adjusting the crossovers on your components?

    Sorry, I should've been more specific. My components are powered by an amp and I adjust the frequencies through there. My last audio set-up had a separate crossover where I could adjust all the speakers.

    I don't have any rear speakers so I can adjust bass levels by adjusting the gain on my sub or fading to/from the rear.
