set your head unit like this: subwoofer level max, Equalization set to completely flat, Bass boost turned off or the lowest you can go. Loudness off. LPF/HPF at 80.
amp settings: Turn down bass boost to 0 nothing nada. If you use the mini remote control bass knob, turn that up all the way or unplug/get rid of it completely. Low pass filter turned up (for now) subsonic filter turned down(for now). Use a 50hz test tone(download somewhere and put it on a disk.) play it and turn the gain up until you you hear the sub starting to change tone or hear distortion, then back it off a couple notches.
if you dont have any subsonic filter or other things then dont worry about it if you do, turn it up to 20-25hz. Leave it off if your subs are in a sealed enclosure. Turn low pass filter back down to around 80hz or in that ballpark.
