Little to no bass from Wireless bass pro

Hello everyone, I've just added a wireless subwoofer pro to go with my streambar. I am getting very little bass from the subwoofer. I have reset both units and have them up to date. I hear and feel no change to the bass, I am getting more bass from the streambar than the actual sub which is kind of disappointing. During initial setup the sub does make a noticeable loud thumb but when switching to music, movies or live sports its almost as if its not there. I have my settings at 10 for bass and 6 for treble. Any tips would help

Re: Little to no bass from Wireless bass pro


I've tried playing around with the sound settings and found no change to amount of bass. Still feels very weak unless I crank the volume very high. I did find a solution by using a different type power cable from another sound system I had. I did a simple test to see if any change to the sound and feel. I played a song with the power cable provide by roku; I've average around 43 dbs using a sound meter app. Now with power cable from Vizio with the same 7A 125v rating I found a higher average of 47 dbs on the same volume. Could it be possible that the provided power cable be faulty. Also a suggestion for the developers. Would it be possible to have a separate bass setting one for the stream bar and one for the wireless bass
