    It causes the amp to put out a dirty signal ..clipped sine wave ....pretty much its not louder .its distortion...and if you havent set youre gains correct in the first place. its even worse

    the gain and bass boost arent volume knobs ..the gain is used to match the output voltage from youre head unit ..once u turn it up past that said voltage u are clipping..and boosting the signal at the amp is only hurting you furthermore

    Alright thanks I did set the gains right and that's why I was wondering about the bass boost cause it seemed it wouldn't be right to push it past where the gain is set two thanks for explaining

    Re: Opinions on amp bass boost

    The bass boost increases the output at a certain frequency. At the normal gain settings this would of course cause you to clip, but if you set your gains accordingly with the bass boost you won't be clipping.
