Default Setting Gains

Hello I when setting the gains for my amplifier, for my subwoofers, should the subwoofer level be a 0 or should you turn it up?

Hi. I'm guessing it would be silent set at 0. This is a useful test for setting level and eq by ear, there are other tests listed on the right of the page. The Subwoofer Kick Drum Test

What kind of system is this and what components does it include. In pro audio the 0dB position on a gain is referred to as unity and that is a good reference point but that doesn't mean all gains will end up set there.
