I just installed an Eclipse dead head unit that has 8v RCA outputs. Is there any benefit in having the higher voltage preamp outputs other than the ability to set your gains lower?
There is alot I dont understand about this, such as:
If the difference in amp wattage between 12v and 14.4 volts is so great, why doesn't doubling your preamp voltage allow you to make more power?
What's the difference, SQwise, between setting gains low and running the HU at full throttle (assume no clipping), as opposed to running a HU at half volume and setting gains higher to compensate?
Is reduction in noise floor the only benefit of high voltage preouts?
One more thing; Should this be in the dumb questions section, cause I don't see alot of discussion about it?
