    Oscilloscope Gain question

    Guys need a little help here, I want to set my gains w/ my oscilloscope. I have a 50x4 amp that is used to Bi-amp a set of MbQuart RCE-216. So each mid gets 50w and each tweeter gets 50w as well.

    The included x-overs cross the tweeters at 4200hz,
    I have an Autosound2000 amplifier setting cd w/ a variety of test tones

    ---Should I be probing the OUTPUTS on the x-over for the tweets and for the mids to check for clipping? (using 8khz tone for tweeter and 1khz tone for mid)

    ---Or should I just check for the clipping on the Output of the amplifier w/ a 1khz tone?

    Thanx for any help.

    Amp outputs.

    I'd use a loud music source instead of a sine wave test tone tho, or else remove the speaker wires first. Speakers (and your ears) won't like continuous sine waves.

    I thought that was a given when setting gains
