0 meaning flat line.

also, when setting my gains on my amp, wouldn't using a 30 hz tone be better then 50 hz if i listen to heavy bass mostly?

you should really adjust it so that the gain setting will be universal so no matter what music you play it'll sound right.

0 meaning flat line.

i ask because i've always have it set to -6, so i need to turn it up to 0 then...

ah that explains why yoru bass is at -6 you have the loud set to high you should adjust your gains with the loud and all other "sound enhancements" to off.

off? then would turning them back on mess anything up? like different voltage or distortion?

yes turning it back on will affect teh way it sounds. but with you haveing the bass down to -6 turning it off and adjusting the gains correctly will make it to where it'll sound better.

Set everything to 0, then go from there. Having your level adjustments all over the place shows your amps probably are not set correctly.

Edit: N/M it looks like your only running a sub amp. I would still adjust the gain with the sub level at 0.
