i just set my bass and treble on the radio at high volume than tune the amp from there. i usually turn the gain all the way down. just trial and error. keep playing with the settings. you will get it right.

Bridging the speaker doesnt allways mean more bass. You need to know what the amps watt output is @ what ohm and also what the speaker is rated at in watts @ what ohm. If you get onto rockfords website they do a good job of explaining. On my rockford 1050s and 2 HX2's its actually better to wire the speakers one on each side to get the most power to the sub.

i have been reading and most of the setting are actually needed to be turned down.. its like a cut off level.. not the higher you go the louder it is..
