    Did not know if anyone could help, but I finally finished with my stereo. Everything is powered, but need some help tuning. Anyone in the DFW area willing to meet up and help out?

    Kinda easy tunning. Turn the gains on the amps down to about half. Then turn the radio volume up to what you would like to listen to. Then turn the gain on the amp up right before it starts to distort sound

    I used the DVOM method of tuning. Set volume at 3/4 with no speakers hooked to the amp and run test tones.

    Door speakers I used 1kHz tone, sub I used a 50Hz tone. Take the wattage of the speakers X ohms then square route and you'll get your target voltage to adjust the gain to.
