Ok so i'm no noob player, im actually pretty good. im just uneducated player. i thought myself everything i know.

and because i had no lessons and no one has really taught me anything i dont know how to adjust amp settings to get different sounds or tones.

and i was listening to take the power back by rage against the machine and i love the sound of the bass in that song i was wondering if anyone can give me tips on how to get this sound, or anysound besides like this basic noise that i play all the time

The main riff in that song (verse) is slapped and popped. You slap the E and the A and pop the D. If you need more advice on the slap technique then there's a tutorial by Applehead, if you search. Otherwise, for EQ, I'd say lower the mids and boost the lows and highs.
