Removing bass from front speakers

I just installed a 350W Alpine sub and amp into my car, and I need to remove the bass from my front speakers. Is there any way of doing this without a crossover. I have a Sony MDX - C5970R Minidisc Head unit. Any ideas?

yeah but I figure there must be some way of just lowering the bass in the front speakers to 0 with the head unit. If you can alter the bass in all of the speakers, surely you must be able to do it in only the front/back ones...

If your running them off the headunit then the only way to elimnate any extra bass is to adjust the bass on the headunit itself.

your best bet would be to go buy some bass blockers they arent hard to install, but this will cut all the bass in your front speakers

If they are are aftermarket that will work if they are stock might not work so well with the bass blockers.

yea bass blockers dont work well on stock speakers at all, my friend put bass blockers on his stock speakers, it just made the speaker sound really bad, the speaker couldnt handle only highs...

you don't need bass blockers, all u need to do is just turn the bass off and turn the gain up, in my opinion it works better than bass blockers

turning the bass off on the head unit also turns the subs off.

no, thats what i do on my subs, i turn it to the lowest level and i turn the gain up, it sounds tons better doing it that way, just try it, see what works for u, if u dont like it, get the bass blockers, but it never hurts to try

...slap,the gain isnt to be used like a volume control, you could potentally be damaging your sub with the gains not properly set...

just buy a couple of 200mf non polar electrolitic capacitors and install them into the +ve feeds to your front speakers.

in a previous post about a month ago some1 had the exact same question, glasswolf said to turn the bass off or to lowest level and turn the gain up, its what i do now and works great, but im not going to argue about bass blockers or not, because u get the same results either way

i disagree slap because your bass on the head unit only controls a fixed frequency which may be to low or high with bass blockers you can choose what you need.

thanks,

this is on but yet off topic here, does turning the gain up on your amp cause it to run a slight bit hotter?

Now, when i turn the bass down on the head unit... it turns down the bass all around, even the subs. though I'm going to go take a look at the bass blockers.

bass blockers is the way to go esp if your running your highs off your head unit.

thanks,
