Still Pre

March 14, 2010

The BC-1 is still working like brand new. It allows me to change my gain and frequency for each and every track that I play on my stereo. I would definitely buy this product again and if you don't have a built in base remote for your amp i would suggest this.

So they say it's a crossover knob...

March 11, 2012

Works fine as a gain knob, but the crossover doesn't really act as such. It acts like second gain knob. Save money and get a plain gain knob.

Serious solution to a serious problem

April 18, 2010

I bought an Absolute ATV 910BT and it has bass control deficiency. This fixed it, big time. The adjustable cross over frequency is what really makes this controller shine. Not to mention you no longer have to rely on the amplifier's controller if it even has one. They can't screw you up by getting broken/stuck anymore either, set your amp once and use this to dial it back.

January 10, 2011

This item is for music lovers that wants simple installation of Bass Control. Even though basically simple to install and use, it has almost the same capability of other quality equalizers available on stock.

I installed this with one of the Amplifier that I use only for Bass whilst I use other equalizers for Mid and Tweeter. It is well marked as to which is input and output and can be screwed onto any parts of the car.

I highly recommend it to music lovers out there, who wants simple basic bass control with quality.

BC101 BASS KNOB

February 4, 2008

GREAT BASS KNOB... I HOOKED IT UP TO MY SET UP OF A "15 SOUNDSTREAM, 3 "10 JL'S (3 MUSKETEERS) AND A 1200W POWERBASS AMP. THE BEST THING IS BEING ABLE TO CNTRL THE FREQ AND THE GAIN. THATS REALLY WHAT SETS THIS KNOB APART FROM ALL THE OTHERS. AND IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE...

somewhat helpful

January 31, 2012

Well, this thing is a pretty neat idea. Easily change crossover settings from drivers seat as well as gain. However, i dont believe the settings on the dials are completly accurate. You may have to adjust some on the amp in order to open the range enough for this to take over. On the plus side, install was simple and took 20 mins. Once it's hooked, it does work. Best advice, dont look at the numbers on it while adjusting, use your ears. Overall, for 12 bucks, pretty cool add-on. BTW, get at LEAST a 3 foot rca to go with it, the rca's are its leash, and limit mounting location accordingly.
PROS: easy install, cool gadget, price,
Cons: not 100% accurate, may not last for years.

Awesome Part... But Broke After One Month

November 26, 2011

This part is awesome - when it works. This is the only one I could find that not only adjusts the bass level/volume/output, but also allows you to adjust the hertz level so you can adjust based on what type of music you're listening to.

Unfortunately though, mine broke after less than one month of ownership. The unit started putting out a very loud hum to my amp/woofers when I had the hertz turned down. When I turned it up to 200, the buzz/hum went away.

I verified it was this unit by removing it from my system, and the noise went away.

Great product, great idea, but I don't have $17 a month to replace these all the time.

Hopefully my replacement unit will last longer than a month.

Buy this!

March 22, 2010

Pros: For one , no one explained in reviews that this turns the bass totally off then you can crank it for your full bass. That is a big A+ for car audio! Most cheap bass knobs from the amp dont do that.
It looks great mounted and the frequency knob works great also. Im running a dpx11551 1550rms amp.

Cons: None!

Thank you Sonic Electronix

Not the same as in picture

September 18, 2009

Mine was not the same as the one in the picture. Instead the RCA's on the back were wires sticking out the back of it instead of being mounted in it. Wasn't a big deal, must be a different model. But now the good side. I love this bass knob. It had super fast shipping. I ordered it on a Sunday and it got to me on Friday. It also increased the quality of my bass and I dont have to flip through screen of menus finding the right one.

This product is great as a bass knob, but I mostly bought it for the crossover. The crossover is awful, it barely removes midrange and high range frequencies, no matter what you set it at. But overall, it makes for a good bass knob.

He said the output on the deck is connected to the input on this device and the output on the device is connected to the input on the amp; I'm not entirely sure if that helps but I hope it does.
