Audio Processing Tips from the Lab

WheatProcessingLab

It’s All About That Bass

It’s amazing how a couple of innocent-looking bass knobs can cause so much trouble. Boosting subsonic bass might make the PD's car subwoofer kick but it’ll cost you loudness on radios that lack the ability to reproduce that bass. The reason is that our ears are much less sensitive to low bass than they are to mid frequencies, so that deep bass you're tempted to dial in is going to eat up lots of modulation to make it really kick on most radios. Our advice: keep bass in check. 

We’ve racked up quite a few hours in the lab testing the effects of bass, which is why Wheatstone processors are designed to reduce the negative effects of extra bass on some radios by maximizing the relationship between bass and midrange.

This tip is brought to you from the Wheatstone Lab by Jeff Keith, CPBE, NCE, Senior Product Development Engineer and Mike Erickson, audio processing field engineer. The Wheatstone Lab has a wide range of music and program content sources that can be routed through more than 37 audio processors, ranging from early vintage 1970s models to the very latest FM audio processor (our X5), plus a half-dozen microphones, three transmitters, and audio display monitors of all types.
