Speaker without Bass & Treble
 
Hi all,

I'm not sure if i'm posting at the correct area but i recently bought a bluetooth speaker which i can't adjust bass & treble. I know that most phone has an equalizer to do that. If i don't want to keep unlocking my phone and access the treble & bass, is there a device i can get?

For what I know most portable BT speaker uses app to adjust.
There are BT speaker with EQ but those are very bulky. Like Sony party series but when you see the size, you will have second thoughts.
I won't recommend portable PA system since most have EQ due to bulkness and quite heavy.

i see. So i should get something like an equalizer?

But i saw some equalizer with bass & treble while some with low,mid,high freq. Are there any different?

Err.... equalizer to pair with BT speaker, it is not recommended
not to mention certain EQ level may cause the BT speaker to distort.
If you are really looking at such portable speaker than that would be
portable PA.

Low, mid and mid EQ level are different parameter for you to tweak.
However this is towards professional audio in particular audio mixing.

Audio mixing there is no right or wrong setting, all dependent on the source and how you want to tweak.
If you are really into professional audio, want to be DJ or work as audio visual technician.

There are places you can learn from like Pioneer DJ, check their facebook.
Sometimes they may classes/session you can join.
FYI EQ with low, mid and high are just basic type of EQ good for beginners to learn.

Intermediate and etc. there are more professional EQ with even more parameters to tweak.
Just sharing, if you feel such equipment is not only troublesome but
pricey.

Get consumer grade BT speaker will do, not to mention some portable system doesn't have BT. The Mackie model I share doesn't have BT.

You mean connect to equalizer?

Consider the audio chain when you're using BT:

Phone --> BT transmitter --> BT receiver --> DAC --> amp --> speaker

You can add EQ at the phone, or between BT receiver and DAC, or between DAC and amp. The latter is the most common.

Problem is, notice the last 4 stages are all enclosed inside the BT speaker itself. So how are you going to add an EQ to the speaker. Either the speaker already has it, or you are good enough to modify the speaker, in which case you wouldn't be asking this question on this forum.

The other approach is have separate equipment so you can add the EQ in, e.g. buy a BT receiver, a speaker, and an EQ.
