would it hurt my sub to up the subwoofer seting on the alpine 9807 if my gains are set prop on the amp? or will it send an unclear sygnal?

It will increase the voltage that your amp is putting out, so if the gain is set properly, then you will be clipping the amp, so yes it will do damage.


Where ever your gain is set, (if truely correct) that is the optimum output of your amplifier, any higher will damage both the amp and possibly the subs. If you want more bass, look into a new enclosure.

sub boost = no no unless you have already set your gains on with the sub boost on prior to setting your gains :D

But that wouldnt make any difference because he would have the gains lower than they are now, in order to not clip the amp. With the subwoofer setting on the HU to 0, you should set your gain. If you set the gains with the setting at +10, then the gain would be lower than the previous setting, giving you the same output on the amp.
