    Whipped the RNSe out tonight and disconnected the BOSE wire. I now have shed loads of Bass. Is was as if the Sub wasnt connected before as I had the bass at max and it wasnt enough but I now have to have it 3-4 clicks over the halfway mark as it rumbles like hell

    Plugged the Bose wire back in and now i dont notice any notable difference whether it is plugged in or not. I have left it out for the minute to see what it's like over a period of time. Still not enough treble for me but it does sound better and I am wondering if in plugging it has activated something in the RNSe

    I also think the source material has a lot to do with it. Low bit rate mp3s on the SD cards are also my problem so I am gonna try an original CD next.

    Don't know yet Rob. I just drove down to the petrol station but had the volume cranked up pretty loudly with my new found levels of BASS !!!!!!!

    I will try it tomorrow as I have to go to Rotherham so I should be able to spend some time in the car

    Volume seems to be pretty stable Rob.

    Having said that I was concentrating on navigating my canoe. I wish this raid would do one !!

    cheers lad,

    do you think this solved the problem? is there any downside of disconnecting the cable?

    Not noticed any. Listened to some good quality Mp3s and they sounded pretty good TBH

    I then stuck on some other music and it sounded shoot. I am convinced the quality of the CD rip has lots to do with it. All in all I would try removing the wire and see if you notice any difference.

    You have nothing to lose.

    I should be in the car plenty tomorrow with the volume pretty low as I will have the nipper with me. It generally fluctuates the volume at the lower levels so I will let you know if it still does it.

    I am only around on Monday of this week and at weekend I have friends up from London. Would probably be easier to pop down to your works in Sale at a lunch time on Monday if your about as it literally takes 2 minutes to do. PM me and let me know.
