LP - is low pass
HP- is high pass
AP- is all pass.
Set it to AP. I do not know about the variable high level adjustment. For the gain if I remember right you set the volume than adjust gain to it is distorted than back it off till it is clear again. Think mine landed on a little over2

Running this amp with JL 6.5 in front and Victroy Lid 6X9's I found my gain settings front and rear to be best around 4. AP is chosen, and as far as the 4v to 6v setting.......smack dab in the middle...

Before setting your gain...... pick a music source like an I-pod and a song with good crisp sound like Steely Dan's "Josie" and start with the gain set to "0".

Set your volume to 3/4 and bass and treble on head unit to center. doing front speakers first then rear. Now turn up your gain slowly until it is loud and just starting to distort. Now back off slowly and listen carefully until it is clean. Stop! that is your gain setting for the front. Repeat for the rear.

If you change speakers down the road pay attention to the RMS rating of your speaker and do not exceed 100 watts RMS and you will have an efficient set up for your RF PBR300X4 amp.

Another note... I mounted a computer cooling fan behind the amp under my fairing with a separate blue LED switch to aid its efficiency during these hot Florida summer rides. Quite effective.

Pay attention when setting your gains on your amplifier. An amplifier does just that...... amplifies whatever signal you put in it. I dont know about anyone else but my stock head unit was distorted way before 3/4 volume. Do what was mentioned earlier but with your head unit running speakers first to find out when your head unit power starts distorting. Do the test with quite afew choices of music of what you listen to, get an average of where the volume level is and use that or a notch or two below that as your "max clean" volume. Then when you have your amplifier installed and running start with gains down low and see how your speakers react as you increase your gains slowly. I know its sounds like alot of "testing" but the whole idea is to have your speakers receive a clean amplified signal. If you have a distorted signal going into your amp , then you are going to have a "amplified" distorted signal to your speakers. As far as power rating on speakers, you can blow up or damage your speakers way below the power rating if it is distorted. Sorry for long winded reply, just trying to save you some $ and time down the road.

According the manual, as for the 4v or 6v option, since you're using that amp in line with the factory stereo's amplified output, set it to 6v. This delays the ON feature of the RF amp just enough to avoid any POP that might come from the factory unit firing up.

People think I am too patronizing. (That means I treat them as if they're stupid.)

Its strange...I have my amp set to a gain 5...and love the music out of my Alpine speakers. Of course, I listen to (and adjusted my amp to)...mostly Pandora and MP3...and I can assure you there is a HUGE difference in volume levels as opposed to listening to FM radio (which I NEVER do).
