That's why you're supposed to set your gains with the knob hooked up and turned all the way up.  That way you can only use it to turn the gain down.  

 

With those amp knobs thats not true becsuse its basically a bass boost knob

 

Bass boostshould never be used

I'm not sure about that.  I always set them the way I said and it according to my Distortion Detector, They don't add any more distortion,  it only turns the gain down.

What about 700htz? With a +3db slope? 15k hz at negative 3 slope? The dd1 is more of an "unwanted noise" detector thats not a true distortion detector.   I use an o-scope with fluke meter and rta

I Use the fluke meter too when setting my own stuff.  My friends get just the SMD :lol:  but most of them just care about how loud their subs can get and don't give a crap about sound quality.  

One day I'll spring for an O scope

Thanks

I was trying to find a spot in that area that wouldn't require too much chopping in behind. The back of that panel has lots of lines so where it ended up was the least amount of work that i know wouldn't affect anything else

I put the bass knob near my right knee under the dash, don't have a picture and the truck is at the dealer getting a leaky transmission fixed so no picture.
