k i have audibahn a8002t amp... to get a good sounding bass i have to turn the gain more then 3/4 of the way up and the amp gets hott quick and shuts down... i know ppl on here say bass boost and loudness configs are no good, but wat do they harm im askin, i can turn the gain under half with bass boost and it is way louder then no bass boost and gain up high.... so what im askin is if i use bass boost and loudness what am i harming, thanks.

all the bass boost adds is distoriton, which leads to clipping. you dont have to have it on 0 but i wouldnt turn it more than 1/4 the way up.

ok well the amp shouldnt get that hot that quick. i have the same amp and i run it at a lower gain setting with my bass up about 3/4.

but turning your gain all the way up also adds just as much distortion.

theres bareley any distortion...i have a pioneer deck and the max is 30... i can turn it to 21 no distortion, 22 a lil and 23 is bad.... papa, the amp is a bass boost switch, its not a manual dial like gain setting its just a switch.... but i get more distortion with higher gain and no boost.

your better off running bass boost and your amp gain set correctly then your amp gain too high and no bass boost.

yes it will cause clipping by the amp being overdriven.

if it sounds bad with the volume at 23/30 then your gain is set too high. it should sound clean almost at full volume. use a ac voltage meter and set the gain right on your amp.

also if your speakers are overpowering the sub then turn the volume down on the speakers.

remember gain is not a volume knob. just because you set it high dosent mean its gonna get louder.

well the only reason it starts to distort... i dont think its the subs distorting its the 4x6s and 6x9s that start distorting

you have the gain set incorrectly on the amp that powers those speakers then. either that or your speakers are really weak. like i said before, its always good to set the gain the right way.
