How Do I Give My Computer Speakers More Bass?

By Thomas King

Bass is a term used to describe low-frequency sounds--generally, this means sounds below 250 hertz (Hz). Instruments that routinely produce these sounds include bass guitar and drums. People enjoy listening to bass for reasons that range from enjoying the physical vibration to enjoying the rhythm that bass guitars and drums produce. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can increase the amount of bass that your computer speakers produce.

Step 1

Click "Start," then click "Control Panel."

Step 5

Click on "Properties." This will open a separate speaker properties window.

Step 6

Click on the "Enhancements" tab and check the box next to "Bass Boost."

Step 7

Click "Apply," and then click "OK." Your speakers will now have more bass.
