Hey, I have a panasonic head unit (CQ 5110u), a kenwood 7201 800 W max amp, and 2 12" kenwood subs that I have bridged to the amp. Right now I have my amp hooked up to my rear level inputs (at the time I didn't know you were supposed to hook the subs up to the outputs that hang from the wires off the head unit, hey I'm 16 and this is my first car/system) anyway on my head unit when something is connected to those outputs I can control the level from the head unit it goes from -12 to +12 db in 2db increments. My question is when I have it hooked up to that output what should I keep that setting around (I know it can't be exact for you to measure this from the internet) I'm just afraid of messing something up. the way it is now I have to keep my bass at +2 to +6 db to get it to bump, I'm guessing I'll turn that to the negative column when it is put into that output. Right now I'm thinking a combo of -6 to -4 out of -12 on the bass and 0 db on the sub control, could I blow anything at that power my amp gain is at a little under 50%.
Please give me your insight
P.S Can you give me some common HPF and LPF levels (in + or - db form) mine sound about right as it is now, but I'm interested to see what people with more experience recomend.
