    2 volt hu?

    so, ive done plenty of installs and set plenty of amps. But they were all of 4 volt hu's that on the amp u turn the gain like 1/3 and the amps at its max, but my hu is only 2 volts and i can turn past middle point without cliping, im just curious if that high of gain is normal with 2 volt, bnecause i know higher gain with lower voltage out

    Your situation is different.



    In the case of diminishedpower; as long as there is no audible noise from the amp, a line driver would not benefit you any.
