So i have Kenwood DNX headunit putting out 2v signal.
Those 2 volts are going into Arc Audio XEQ (equalizer) that puts out 8V and sends it to Arc Audio IDX (crossover) that also puts out 8V. Basically both Arc pieces act as line drivers as well, both put out 8V.

I'm thinking of getting Polk's full range class-D amps in near future. Their "gain range" is from 6V to 200mV. What effect will this have?
Will there really be 8 volts reaching my amps?
If so - any "damage" to either equipment due to "extra" 2 volts that line drivers put out while amps don't cover?
Will it be simply like having a bit too much gain on whatever other system?

I imagine both the arc peices have an output gain knob on the output RCA? if they do, turn em down. 8v is the max. it is not going to operate there continuously.
