Have you tried selecting the "Custom" preset, and then moving the bars?

Open the Equalizer and click on "Custom", a list will appear....

...sorry I'm a little "foggy".

Is that what you mean?

Get winamp, and set the exsisting presets... Winamp overall sounds much better than WMP11 IMO.

If you want the best sound quality, WMP11 aint gonna give it to you, no matter what you do

I think he means he wants to know how to actually set the sliders. The left couple sliders are low-range frequencies for bass, middle sliders mid-range for midi, and right sliders are high-range for the highs. Now, depending on what kind of music you listen to, there are many different kinds of ways you can set it. Techno? Crank up the bass and lower the highs a little. Metal? Up the bass a little and move up the midi and high. But I would just use the presets because if you move the sliders even half way on the WMP11, it increases the frequency by a LOT.
