Why have a LEVEL control on the Bose Sub1/Sub2? This can also apply to other subwoofers as well.
Equal-loudness contours from ISO 226:2003 shown with original ISO standard.

At lower volume, the Equal Loudness contour[1] shows that humans don't perceive bass as well as mid-highs. You can compensate for this by turning up the Sub1/Sub2 LEVEL Control.

Other times bass may seem excessive

  • At higher volumes
  • Due to boundary effects (proximity to walls and corners)
  • On a resonant stage

You can compensate for this by turning down the Sub1/Sub2 LEVEL Control.
