    I use it. It's set at max when the gain is set. That way it can only go down

    It's true.

    All of mine go right in the junk drawer of my toolbox. I either forego them altogether or use an inline RCA knob.

    yes, it really looks just like a gain knob, but this one plugs into your RCA's, and does the same thing a gain knob will do. set the gains on your amp then control it with this, same concept.

    this is what i have:
    Axxess AALC Universal RCA Level Bass/Gain Controller

    Front Stage: Ascendant Audio 6.75", Massive Audio 28mm tweeters

    I use that one on my burp deck, but I have measured a slight voltage drop across the Axxess vs. the PAC knob. Very slight though. I use the PAC in my daily for no other reason than the Axxess didn't fit in the spot I wanted.

    Probably best case for daily, but I like having an actual knob for burps. But even if I didn't, there's no sub level on my 80prs in "network" mode. How lame is that? There is one in "standard" mode, but it's like 4 menus deep, so I'd still use a knob.

    Yeah. You know... like preout voltage? It was like .3v or some shit. It wasn't much, but it was enough to notice. And not really anyting to be concerned about since you can just adjust the amp gain.
