Another question about setting gains?
Wether using a DMM or a Scope is not the issue here, its the technique. Everything I have read or videos I have seen shows that you are supposed to turn off all EQ's/curves, Bass enhancers, ect... then with the HU's volume set to max before clipping turn the gains up till you see clipping on the amp outputs then back it off a hair. GOT THAT PART!
But what happens to the signal as soon as you turn your EQ,Epicenter, ect.. back on?
Will you start clipping at a lower volume due to boosting certain freq when hitting those hard notes?
SQ people always say "Never Boost, always cut" to balance peaks but sometimes you have to boost certain freq. to get it sound right.
Or am I over analyzing?
