Any credence to the claims that the OEM head unit neuters the bass to save the EOM speakers?

bass roll off is what youre talking about. Yes, the radio will roll off the bass at higher volumes, but it doesnt mute it.

i use an lc2i to correct this issue with my subwoofer so that it gets a full signal at higher volumes.

i have not amplified my other speakers yet.

I think the Alpine system has too much bass too. I turn mine down as well.

Yup, my Alpine audio booms too much bass. I need to bring it down with the equalizer.

The alpine system should have come with subwoofer volume control

Please, my gladiator came equipped with the alpine stereo system. I cannot locate the "sunwoofer" on my model. I just took the hardtop off in my garage hoping that would help locate it but I cannot find it anywhere. Do I need to take the doors off too? Please advise.
