Re: Alpine CDA-9835 Users..
Not sure, but going with the "not turning your HU past 75% because it probably clips" rule of thumb that I follow with mine, I don't turn it past 24. Jmo and not scientific at all, but I know when I had my gains set by ear before I had it turned up to 26-28 before and I blew my CDT mids. Of course that could have just been CDT though hah.
