    if ur getting no bass it could be because there's not enough weight on ur needles. try moving the counterweight around...that could help i think

    its just the bass thats missing right? the high pitch stuff is all there?

    Before you adjust the tonearms weight, get your vinyl collection and record the drums, so you can get really clean breaks from top producers

    i got the battle pack aswell and i can tell you that the reason you got no bass is because of the fuckin terrible speakers you get with it.
    buy better speakers and you should have bass.
    if not.....then god help us all!

    Make sure the tone arm prop isn't raised. You should see a little lever near to where the arm is.

    Its most likely that you were expecting some amazing bass response from a pair of SHIT speakers.
    Out of interest which speakers do you have?

    The simple solution would be to throw them in the bin and buy some 1210's. Second hand off eBay. Done.

    i assume youv've actually switched everything on....of course you have, I thought I was goin mad when I got my first decks cuz I could hear a faint d&b beat at very low frequency with no speakers or mixer connected and to my amazement found they ouput a sound when you just spin vinyl, fecking magic!

    best way is to start on crap decks imo... If you can handle those, you surely can handle 1210's (not the other way around...)
