    yeah, i completely forgot to include that as a part of the Total setting of the gain. the attuenating of any settings to get it all to blend together. haven't blown up anything since the stock Blose 6x9s before i had my aftermarket gear installed. it does seem to be a process over complicated by quite a few people.

    I'll try to think something out that can be done without a scope. See, it's tough to predict in car audio with no known gain staging and no clip indicators.

    agreed.

    setting gains based on SNR, for me, has worked the best. It seems you come to that point close to when you're at clipping (actually, clipping happens after, IME). Then you just start backing gains down to match the weaker output. Not a science by any means.
    To me, it's just an easier method as opposed to breaking out my scope. Once I make an adjustment on the dsp or gain pot itself, I've pretty much negated the scope anyway.
