Well, if your subs are distorting (from the amp or what have you) at your normal listening volume, you need a new amp and or subs..

anyway, to adjust your gains, first turn the gain all the way down on the amp. Then, on your h/u, turn the volume up to a level in which you would normally play at the loudest before the speakers distort(what you would normally 'bump' at), then go to the amp, and turn the gain up untill it starts to distort, then adjust it accordingly.
The general idea is right.. start low on gains and set the HU, but you only put the gains up far enough to 'balance' the bass to your taste for what you are listening to.. If you get your gains up too high, you will have a distored output and be overdriving your amp and can cause clipping and burn out your subs..
