"gain" on the amp is properly called "input sensitivity."
This is the control that balances the input stage of your amplifier to match the line voltage of your source (the head unit or line driver.)
this should be set ptoperly once, then not touched afterward, and never used to compensate for a lack of amplifier power volume.
the remote bass control is really just a variable cut/boost EQ setting.
it's at a fixed frequency, and allows you to add a bit of boost to the signal at that fixed frequency point, much like the slider on an EQ.
Turning this up too far though, can cause the amplifier to clip in some circumstances.
Mostly it's a matter of common sense, and taking care of your gear. If you hear distortion, you need to make some adjustments so you don't damage your gear.
