This is my first "real" bass amp (ie not a 15W 1x8 learning toy) and I don't know if the problem is the amp, or my expectations, poor room acoustics, or even my poor playing ability. Basically, the GK seems quite boomy, lacking in punch, etc. It reminds me of a lower mid priced hifi sub -- powerful and room filling, but not especially precise or musical. I've sort of got the amp under control by rolling the bass and lo-mid EQ way back and the treble way up, but I don't know if such extreme EQ adjustments are normal. Should I be thinking about returning this amp and trying something else?
