Alpine PDX-V9

Who has this amp running their factory speakers? I will be installing, but I don't know where to set my gains to avoid blowing the speakers. Any help/suggestions will be helpful. Thanks in advance.

You should never set your gains blind. After connecting the amp, set your crossovers and filter switches as I pm'd you. Keep you gain turned all the way to zero.

Turn your head unit volume up to close to max - then slowly starting turning your gain control clockwise to where its loud but not distorting/clipping. Then turn it down just a notch from there. Do the same for your sub gain.

As I pm'd you, however, you will want to change out those factory speakers soon for something more compatible with the RMS output of your new amp.
