Help with Alpine MRD M501 Amp

Not sure if this is posted in the right section, but I am looking for help with my amp. Its a alpine mrd m501 mono and it has all digital settings. What I need help with is setting the settings lol. Not sure what I should put what at. My head unit is a panasonic cq-c7301u and I am using two 12" mtx mxs1204 subs in a vented box. Any help would be great. Here are the links to the amp, deck, subs

oh i think its neat and all but just a pain in the ***! hahahaha the first thing you have to do is get the gain on the amp to pretty much match the voltage of the RCA's from the deck then after that just play something and mess around with the settings to see what sounds the best. no one can really tell you exactley how to set the amp with out being there to hear whats happening when things are changed.. it might take a few hours but play around and you'll get it... if its just a driver system then what you want is for it to sound good right! so just play until it sounds good
