    Pioneer CD-RB10 Aux in low bass

    Hey y'all, I use a CD-RB10 ip bus adapter (the unofficial cheap version from Ebay) for my 7400 Pioneer deck, everything is all good except when using an input device like Ipod, mp3 player, my carputer, the low end doesn't seem to come in nearly as loud as when playing a cd. I got a 400watt L5 solo baric kicker subwoofer in the back, which is connected to the rear preamp out rcas on the deck. No amp for the front speakers, but they are 50watt rms pioneers unamplified (powered by the deck). The sub does work, but its woofing very low. Anyone else have this problem? The Highs and Mids sound fine. Even punching the bass settings on the head unit all the way up doesn't compare to the bass of the other sources (CD or radio). What's the dilly? Is it because of the cheaply made cable? It shouldn't matter because all aux in does is send the signal to the head unit and the speakers should do the rest...
    Help!

    Adjust the bass on the aux input. They're all seperate on Pioneers.

    It's also because the volume level on CDs is a LOT higher than the output of your devices. Either adjust the input volume via the function menu, or get a small line-level amplifier on the aux-input to give it a little 'boost' before it gets to the radio.

    Or do what I said and everything will be all right with no extra money. Pioneers also have a thing called Source Level Adjustment (SLA) that you can turn up or down for everything except AM/FM.

    I dont think thats the problem, even with the aux SLA all the way up, it still sounds as if the bass is cutout. Even when you turn the sub off it doesn't make much of a sound difference, most of the bass produced is coming out of the speakers, not subwoofer. Cranking the bass all the way up helps, but is no where near as loud as the cd source. Its a 400 watt sub, it should be hella louder than it is on aux. are there filters built in the pioneer cd-rb10 or 20 that aren't included in the generic ebay cables? Nobody has these cables and the same problem?

    I made my own cable, so I can't speak on the pioneer peices. It's probably the source.

    There are no filters on those cables, no. Does his happen with ALL sources? You mentioned a few, but did you test it with more than your computer? IE, a discman, MP3 player, etc?
