1. ## Pros Cons 2v vs 4v?

Alright I thought that the preout voltage was how you determined where to set your gains? What are the advantages of a 4v over a 2v? Will I be able to turn my amp up more with a 4v HU than a 2v HU? Thanks!

2. ## Re: Pros Cons 2v vs 4v?

IDK if I am thinking to hard and its an obvious answer, but I would assume if you had a 4v preout and you had enough power then you could turn your gains up more then you could with a 2v without clipping?

3. ## Re: Pros Cons 2v vs 4v?

Your pre out voltage just determines where you set your gain, which is how much the amp will amplify that signal. Having a 2v pre-out will make you turn the gain up higher than the 4v, but when set correctly your amp will output the same voltage.

4. ## Re: Pros Cons 2v vs 4v?

you just turn the gain up less with the 4v input. it will have no inpact on the output of your amp.

No, the amp will clip at the same point with a 2v, 4v, or 8v signal.

it doesn't matter. it's all about where your gain is set at. this question has been asked literally thousands of times over the years at ca.com. search

Thanks alot guys! Now I get to go back at retract a suggestion and look like an ***! Ha

8. ## Re: Pros Cons 2v vs 4v?

Long story short, pick your HU because of the other features it has, eq's, t/a, or even how it looks before you pick it for preout voltage.

I used it, thanks though ********.

Maybe next time I need to try more than 1 time on the search button.
