    Exclamation How do I turn up only the Sub on my '06 CTS

    I just had a 12" Fosgate Punch2 with a 600w amp and a 1.2f cap installed and I know it hits allot hard than it is right now. All I can find is how to turn up the bass, but I dont want to push the mids that high and rather the sub do the work...I left the original deck in because I like all the features it has... Am I missing a setting???? Please help!

    I'm really not sure of how to do it within the system of the Cadillac...not sure IF there is even a way to do it without the BOSE system....not sure..

    But if you had that stuff installed on the factory setup...you should have some kind of line level input....

    You can increase the 'gain' on that where the speaker wires go into it...should have a small small phillips head screw that you can adjust to give more power to the amp...

    Hey I just installed an amp and sub onto the factory deck of my 06. First off make sure your source signal is coming off the rear speaker output from the stock amp. It's the only full range signal in the car. Second, you're gonna have to turn the bass right up in the eq on the deck. Mine sounds great with that setup. Although it is a big trunk so my 2 10's aren't as loud as they were in the Integra i had before.

    Everyone, thanks for the help! I am able to turn it up by the amp, however do not like the fact the factory stereo does not have this option, oh well!

    My factory radio acted weird when I connected it to a aftermarket amp and woofer....the gains/volumes were weird, the subwoofer never pounded the way it should have. .......I ended up tossing the factory radio and installing a kenwood.

    You could always run a cable form your amp and mount a remote-bass adjuster thingy up by you that allows you to turn the bass up and down. Every amp ive bought and had installed either came with one, or it was an optional accessory

    Bollocks, I installed my JL Audio 250/1 using the high gain leads off of the sub channel only. I have Bass set to flat on the EQ and and the gain set just above flat on the amp. Plenty of thump, never had an issue, don't know why you guys have so many problems.
