Too much bass
I've recently installed mandrake 10 on my bro comp and we encountered some problem with the sound card. It's an hercules muse Xl. After working on it for a few hours we were able to make it work (with the help of people on a chan)
However the sound is not very good, it's mostly saturated in bass. It's really awfull and i can't watch a movie on the comp under linux.
Is there a way to correct the sound coming from the sound card?

ps i'm using a 4.1 kit from altec lansing and i can't regulate the subwoofer volume

I'm running Mandrake 10.0, KDE, and having pretty much the same problem. My sound card is decent, and got surround-sound speakers. Is there no way to adjust the bass?

if you are using alsa, the alsa volume mixer has controls for the bass volume and the other different volumes.

You can use arts to compress the low frequencies and keep the mid and high frequencies intact.

Did you try with other speakers.

You can try to put in a bug report at ALSA. They will eventually fix it.

chozas, not all alsa modules have a bass and treble settings. It depends on the programmer for the module and the sound card.
