Do you prefer more bass or more treble?

Asked by klaas4 (2186points) June 3rd, 2008

I prefer bass. I love it when my subwoofer is shaking the floor under my desk. :)

B.T.W. No metal! Ska, pop, soul, reaggae, blues and country! (and sometimes classical)

Bass, no doubt.

I also like bass, I like ska.

depends on the music…but a good combination of treble, bass and mid usually does it for me….in other words, no over-bearing bass or treble for me.

@ccatron: That’s true, but if your treble is very high, it sounds awful.

Definitely treble. Thank God for digital music. Before that when you turned the treble all the way up you would get a lot of hiss.

@klaas – agreed…that’s why i prefer a good mix…

on the other hand, if i’m listening to talk radio, the bass is usually overwhelming for some of the voices of the hosts, so I have to kill the bass quite a bit so i don’t get a headache

You need like an equalizer which you can program to radio, different genres and other presets, but directly in the amp… Hmm, yet something to invent later. ;)

I’m going to watch House now, on in the Netherlands.

hmmm, good one, let’s just take a loot at my equalizer, see, always nice to be a middle man

as for my music? let’s see, this should be a good reflection of my collection

i dont really like rap at all, so more treble for me

depends on music. A good balance is best for me. Sometimes too much of one can really destroy the whole sound

Bass, but not too much. A lot of people get out of control with bass when they have a system in their car and it completely kills the whole song cause all you hear is the bass.

@uberbatman: True, not too much.

Oh boy tough room…Again…
You asked more bass or treble?...
Then stated that “you love it when the sub-woofer shakes the floor”....
That having been said, lends to ALL kinds of perverted and sexual innuendo….

Anyone else need to chime in?

Bass, for sure.
