selections (B-Boost, Impact, Exite, Z+Flat and Custom). Along with 2 bands of parametric
equalization, the Z-Enhancer Plus circuitry enables sound adjustments with more
flexibility than the basic Bass and Treble tone controls.
- B-Boost: Bass is emphasized from -3 to +3.
- Impact: Bass and treble are emphasized from -3 to +3.
- Excite: Bass, treble and midrange are emphasized from -3 to +3.
- Z+Flat: Bass and treble settings are set to flat.

10k, 12.5k, 15k, or 17.5k.
Magna Bass EX (Extend): The Magna Bass Extend feature does not adjust
the low frequencies like the normal sound adjustment function, but emphasizes
the deep bass frequencies to provide you with a dynamic sound. The Magna Bass EX
circuit boosts bass at 50Hz. This creates a rich, deep, defined bass rather than
the muddy, booming bass of a standard loudness control. The Magna Bass EX boost
levels are dependent on the system volume, which results in balanced system
response and dynamic bass reproduction
