    What is the Auxilary function?

    I know what auxilary is of course. But on my head unit when I go through the settings theres Auxilary and I can turn it anywhere from -15 to 15 and by default it is at 0. What does it do?

    Also, what is the difference between Low and Sub?

    It's most likely a stereo jack that plugs into the 3.5MM jack on MP3 player.

    He's not asking about that, he's asking what the auxiliary setting is on his deck since he can go from -15 to 15 with it.

    My personal guess is its volume for just anything plugged into the Auxilary jack so that it can have its own separate volume..not sure

    The difference between "Low" and "Sub" is that Low will affect all bass output whereas Sub only affects the bass output from your SW preout

    ^^This

    I have an Xploded head unit also. This is basically just a volume adjustment knob to help match the aux. output volume (like an Mp3 player, iphone, etc.) to the normal head unit volume. Like when I plug my phone into the head unit, I can only turn it up so loud. Then I have to start cranking up the master volume on the head unit to compensate. This helps that. Ever crank your volume way up on aux and then plug in the 3.5mm jack and it gives you a monsterous boom.....lol

    Basically a "Gain" off the aux. unit like everyone here has said.

    Correct! It's a gain offset. You use it to tweak the volume level from your aux device so that it better matches the rest of your sources.

    EDIT: Heh, a little late on this one...
