alsa-eq or pulseaudio-equalizer with Pi Zero W headless


I'm attempting to get an equalizer to work with a HiFiBerry Amp to boost the bass on my speaker, however, after installing alsa-eq and changing the levels, the sound does not change.

I followed this guide for alsa-eq:


When that didn't work, I tried adding pulseaudio-equalizer, but I couldn't figure out how to change the settings as I'm running in headless mode and not using the Pi Desktop GUI.

Has anyone been able to get alsa-eq (or pulseaudio-equalizer or any other) to work with their HiFiBerry Amp?

Here's the OS version I'm running:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 5.10.17+ #1403 Mon Feb 22 11:26:13 GMT 2021 armv6l GNU/Linux
