Question about Input Sensitivity or other voltage levels...

Hi, this is my first post here on any forum. I just wanted to clear something up....

I have a whole audio system i changed out in my 2017 LX Civic, but kept the stock HU.
All the speakers have been replaced with Infinities, and I threw in a subwoofer in my custom made fiberglass enclosure.

In order to accommodate for NO subwoofer pre-out, I got myself a LC2i with the ****.
Hooked it up, works well......But my subwoofer seems to slightly distort or clip at high volumes, but my amp and sub are both rated for 500 Watts RMS, and my amp is only at half gain. The order in which my subwoofer is connected is as follows:

1. Usb stick (with music)
2. Stock Head Unit
3. LC2i LOC (High level inputs from HU)
4. Rockford Fosgate Sub Amp (Low level inputs from LOC)
I think all my gain settings are messed up, and I think my LC2i (which states it can OUTPUT 9.5 volts) is giving out wayy too much voltage for my Rockford amp (which says is 4 volts MAX low level input sensitivity).

Sorry this was so confusing to read too. Any other help is welcome.
