confused Bass Only from Speakers

Recently purchased new 6"x9" speakers running through a new amp and only getting bass sound from it. How do I fix it to get treble sounds?

Currently running
Pioneer DEH-7450mp
Pioneer 3way 6x9 speakers
Cadence Q3000 amplifier

Any suggestions, if ive installed it wrong or how to fix it?

Thanks

Re: Bass Only from Speakers

On your amp, it'll have have a few switches. how many channel? iv got a 4 channel amp. Bridged the 3rd and 4th so that i could only get bass for my fully sik subwoofer so that i got 400+watts. because with these channels there is an extra switch, dunno wat it says, just got numbers on each option, i think its sound frequency or some big word...lol
and for my 7X10's i run 1st and 2nd channel, only coz it looks neet, but just turn amp down so they dont blow. on my amp there is no option for just bass or treble on my 1and2channels, only 3and 4.

You cant go wrong with wiring coz then nothing would come out... just play around with the switches...someone here will have the brainy description...

Cheers, Ray

Re: Bass Only from Speakers

If you have wired it all up wrong your speakers will be out of phase, ie you will notice a lack of bass due to cone excursion reversing.

Re: Bass Only from Speakers

From memory,when a speaker is out of phase, the cone gets the signal, instead of travelling out of the voice coil, it pulls inwards.

Re: Bass Only from Speakers

What he said ^, i was just clearing up the fact that you can wire the speakers out of phase and the only thing you will notice is a lack of Bass. Easy done, i spent a couple of years wiring up speakers for an A/V company and it was standard practice to go over each one with a phase checker.
But i agree it would most likely be an amp setting on low pass if your only getting Bass.

Pioneer DEH-7450mp
I think this H/U may have a high pass X/over on the rear speakers, check out car audio austraila, there was recent post on these H/U's.
Check the owner manual!

Re: Bass Only from Speakers

In any stereo setup you need to make sure that both pairs of speakers are wired the same for each channel, that is the left amp + goes to the left speaker + and the right does the same, otherwise the signal will move one cone forwards and the other backwards, (makes for very muddy bass)

In "phase" is when both speakers push together, or pull together.
