what is the VC config of the type r, dvc4 or dvc2, and do you have the gain set correctly.

match the gain to the pre out voltage of your head unit. if you can't do it i'd either take it to a shop and have them do it or get a dmm (digital multi meter $15-20) and set it yourself. you can even watch a 4-5 minute video of how to set the gain with a dmm on www.edesignaudio.com.

when someone says "Gain set to half", that is usually the first bad sign...

fix that gain
