I just got my sub level controller for my amp, and before I bought it I kept my amp gain 3/4 of the way up. With the controller plugged into my amp however, it makes it so I need to have the controller nearly all the way up for it to even have as much output as when it's not plugged in, eliminating the benefit of having a controller in the first place. My question is if I turn the gain knob on the amp all the way up and then plug in my controller, can I effectively control the level without the amp acting like the gains are all the way up and clipping? I just want to have more of a range of control over the sub's output level.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks!
