Custom Filters

Installing a Custom EQ Filter:

To add a custom low-pass filter to your BalancedForce subwoofer:

  1. Download the appropriate zipped file to match your main speakers.
  2. Unzip and save the custom low-pass file in the root directory of a USB flash drive (a USB flash drive was included with your new subwoofer, but any flash drive 32GB or smaller should work)
  3. Insert the flash drive into the USB Input on the back of the subwoofer. The subwoofer will automatically find the file and load the custom low-pass filter.

To assure a successful upload to your subwoofer we recommend having no other files or folders on the flash drive—the subwoofer can only load one file at a time. Please review your subwoofer's manual for more information.

Firmware Updates

Updating your Subwoofer's Firmware:

Please note, the subwoofer will load whichever firmware revision is on the connected flash drive—even if the firmware revision on the flash drive is older than what is currently loaded on your subwoofer. The latest version of the firmware is available on this page.

To check which revision your subwoofer currently has installed, press the Custom Low-Pass button and hold it for 3 seconds. The Tone Sweep LED light will blink a number of times that is equal to the current revision number (e.g. two blinks = revision 2 firmware).

Please note, updating the firmware should not erase settings for PBK (Perfect Bass Kit) and the Custom Low-Pass filter. A notice will be posted on our website alongside the firmware download if, for some unforeseen reason, a specific firmware revision must erase these settings—otherwise, these setting should still be in place after a firmware update.

  1. Download the latest firmware file for your subwoofer model. Save the firmware file in the root directory of a USB flash drive (a USB flash drive was included with your new subwoofer, but any flash drive 32GB or smaller should work). To assure a successful upload to your subwoofer we recommend having no other files or folders on the flash drive—the subwoofer can only load one file at a time.
  2. Unplug the subwoofer from the AC outlet.
  3. Insert the flash drive into the USB Input on the back of the subwoofer.
  4. Reconnect the subwoofer to the AC outlet. The USB Status LED will continually blink red-green-red-green while the firmware is being updated—this blinking may pause momentarily during the update. Do not remove the flash drive until the LED stops blinking and shows a solid color for at least 5 seconds.

Please review your subwoofer's manual for more information.
