Came across this on a Facebook car audio group and it made my head hurt:rolleyes:

"I have this amp in my truck and can only use about half of the gain on it with certain songs with my current sub. There's a clip light that comes on when I need to turn it down according to my installer. What do I need to look for in a sub to be able to crank my amp all the way up if I want to?"

But even worse was the 1st reply:

"From someone who has had this issue with three of those amps in one car I can tell you you need to run kicker power wire. I didn’t believe it either until I change my power wire.... It clips because it doesnt have enough power coming in, to output. I encounter this issue, and called kicker. They asked If I was using Kicker wire and I said no. They told me to switch to kicker wire, and it would fix it. I didn’t believe them, but i switched the wiring, and BOOM, my issues went away."

There is a sucker born every moment, some grow smarter and out of it and some just don’t. Some smarter people say its part of Darwinism or natural selection. At least it makes for good entertainment I guess.

Guess my gains have never really been set because I've always used my ears since day one back in 03:laugh:

Set gains at 3/4 volume so you'll have room to go up a little more on lower recordings providing your headunit is clean all the way up or close to it. That's how I understand it anyway. I think there's also this thing where people do it at 3/4 to get full volume most of the time to make sure they don't clip the headunit before full output. You better use the SMD gain setting thingy otherwise your system will only play Rebecca Pidgeon 24/7:laugh:
