Are Subs supposed to play vocals?
Subwoofers are not designed to play vocals due to their large cone surface area they can play up to 120 HZ then they start to roll off because the cone is heavy and they are made for pushing large amounts of air. All you need to do is go into the audio settings, select the LPF option and set it to 80 HZ.
How do I know if my bass speaker is blown?
The most common aural indication of a blown speaker is an unpleasant buzzing or scratching sound, by itself or roughly at the pitch of the note the speaker is attempting to reproduce. Or there could be no sound at all.

What is LPF on an amp?
As we discussed earlier in this article, subwoofer amps typically use LPF ( low pass frequency ) filters to block high frequencies that should be playing through your speakers. A subsonic filter will attenuate frequencies so low that your subwoofer cannot reproduce them OR that humans are incapable of hearing.
Where do you put the low pass on a subwoofer?
As a general rule, the Low-Pass Filter should be set at a value approximately equal to (or below) 70% of your main speaker’s lowest frequency response. For example, your speaker’s frequency response goes down to 43Hz. 70% of 43Hz equals 30.1, so you should set the subwoofer’s low pass filter to 30Hz.
Can too much bass damage speakers?
Too much bass can cause the speaker cones to move excessively beyond its limits — a situation known as over excursion. Over time the cones will deform and eventually break. Also, an extremely loud bass can easily damage midrange speakers because they are not designed to play low frequencies.
Can you fix blown speakers?
What to Do About a Blown Out Speaker. You have two choices: repair or replace. The reason is, the speakers need to be expensive enough to warrant a repair, and that means re-coning. Re-coning means not only replacing the cone but the entire assembly including the voice coil.
Why does my bass have no sound?
2) Check your cables Another common cause of bad sound or no sound is an issue with your cables. Test out some different cables if you have them and you could have an easy fix. Bear in mind, because bass (and guitar) cables are unbalanced, they will pick up noise disturbance from other electrical equipment.
Why does my bass sound weird?
Your bass guitar amp can make unwanted distorted and fuzzy sounds. A variety of factors may be to blame, including the settings on your amp, the cables you have connected to your amp and the quality and/or components of your amplifier.
Why is the bass so quiet?
The bass is usually quieter in song mixes because of its role in the band -it’s a rhythm instrument, not a lead instrument like vocals or guitar.

How loud should a mix be before mastering?
I recommend mixing at -23 dB LUFS, or having your peaks be between -18dB and -3dB. This will allow the mastering engineer the opportunity to process your song, without having to resort to turning it down.
