Some ppl use LOUD and claim it works well without any distortion. :confused:

because they don't know how to setup a stereo...loud is designed to boost highs and lows when at low volume and is not recommended for higher volume applications

depends on how you have the gain set on your amp....if it would push the amp into clipping then bad and don't do it

No sub levele for you? And i don mean "lows".
I mean SW-1, SW-2 levels. Where u can regulate subwoofer level only or turn/block it off completely.

I set my gains with the volume at 58 and sub2 at +2 which means, theoretically, that I get my full unclipped signal at 58 and +2

if I have the volume lower, then I know I can turn sub2 up a little higher....however I do not because the subs can overpower the mids/highs
