In respect to this, what is the purpose of EQ?

The circuit or equipment used to achieve equalization is called an equalizer.

EQ Concepts EQ frequency controls use these numbers to describe the tonal range of the audio spectrum and allow us to find specific frequencies and make adjustments to them. Low frequencies like 40 Hz and 100 Hz describe lower tones. High frequencies like 5 kHz and 10 kHs describe higher tones.

Should Bass be higher than treble?

The treble should be a little higher than the midrange (assuming you have at least a 3-range graphic equalizer). Regardless of your preference, the best way to start out setting yours up is to put all the ranges (bass, mid, treble) at whatever the neutral or halfway position is on your car, then adjust from there.
