    How high can i turn my amp up?

    I have an Alpine V Power MONO Class D 700 watt amp. I have it pushing two ten inch RF P2 Punch subs. I have the gain and the level turned over 3/4 of the way up and the subs still dont distort. Would it be safe for me to turn it up more. Oooo, and i have my X - Over hooked up to and the level on that arent up but a lil over half. Lemme know what i should do.

    I'd just go by distortion too. I'm sure there is a very accurate way of finding out how high you can turn it up until it clips- by using am oscilloscope you could turn it up until you see a clipped signal, but hardly anybody has one... wish I did.
