Hey, I have an Alpine 9835. I am running my old Rockford four channel, 400x4. The max deck volume is 35. I noticed today, I turned it up to 25, after that it stopped getting louder, from 25-35. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but does this mean that I can turn up the gains a bit? The gain on the front stage is at a very minimum level, and the sub gain is about half. Thanks!

Well its probly just maxing out you amps too soon and it will not get any louder. You may need to turn the gains down even in order to crank the volume up to 35. another thing you could do is hold the menu button down and go to the crossover screen. select the front/rear/sub and turn the **** to the left a few noches. (i think i have mine at like -4db)

correct me if i am wrong though.

Right, so cut the crossover output on the deck to my fronts maybe. I am not too concerned, as it gets pretty loud, just was curious as to why this was happening.

Leave the HU pre-out levels at "0" and turn the amp gains down.

Hey Ross, to get max volume you need to drop the front and rear levels to @ -3 or more. Leave the sub at 0.

If your running your amp to run front and rear speakers turn the Power IC off. It should increase SQ as I have been told. I haven't tried it since I am using the V-Drive myself on my 9835.

Thanks guys, I have turned off the power IC, thanks Joe. So cut the crossover output levels, and then adjust the gains from there?

seahag, have you boosted any low frequencies on your user EQ? Ie, 50hz +6db...
If so, turn down any bass boost and you should hear your volume come up.

Thanks man, will do. All of the xovers are set to flat (0 db) right now.
