    Decreasing gains increases output?

    Perhaps, I didnt set my gains right.

    But if I were to lower my gains slightly, would my components be able to get louder before bottoming out?

    By the way, I have SLC kicks with about 150W going to each side.



    A couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead? There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

    check the sticky at the top of the amplifiers section, but to answer your question, I believe it should be the opposite

    I would think that as long as you're not sending a clipped signal to your speakers (setting your gains too high) that when you increase volume (assuming you aren't going clipped on your headunit volume) you are sending clean, unclipped signal to your amp and therefore the output is "better" and not distorted.
