Re: Amp required for Tempest X2

I always set my levels by connecting the avr to the poweramp and then playing some music such as bass heavy music or movie. I do this at reference level or whatever levels you like to play that are very loud. Then adjust levels on the gain knobs of the amp. I do all this before hooking up my speaker to the amp.

I adjust the levels so that the clipping limiter comes on very faintly during a bass heavy track. I know I wont listen to my setup at this level but I know what the amp is setup for by doing this. Then add your speaker/subwoofer.

Have you seen the clipping lights come on at all yet?

Re: Amp required for Tempest X2

I have already set the Crown's & Yamaha's gains like you've suggested above & only get clipping lights at volumes louder than '10' on the AVR (stupid loud).
This is with using car audio bass testing songs.
I have no issues in setting the gains, I just thought the gains were very high to achieve this output!?
