    Hacking factory head unit

    Has anyone managed to hack the Bass and Treble levels? Is there a way to boost them?

    The amount of trebel and bass you can get out of a system depends on the design of the circuit as well as the quality of components. You might be able to get a little more if you built a better final amp, but then the preamp for the tape/cd and radio demodulator might need to be upgraded as well. By then you have built a whole new radio.

    Somewhere in the head unit there will be an oppamp and a few supprot componets which are used to create the bass and trebile controls.

    Iff you follow the wires back from the variable resistors (knobs if you want to be technical) you should be able to find the chip.

    If your luck it'll be a stand alone chip in which case you should be able to adjust the gain by changing a couple of resistors, if your unlucky it'll all be built into one big car hi-fi chip in case your srewed.

    I hope that makes some sense.

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)
