Which tones to use:

  • 0 dBFS: For distortion free output with the most dynamic range. May not be loud enough at times if you listen to a wide range of artists with different recording styles.
  • -5 dBFS: For a wide listening variety. Will give you higher sound output levels but less dynamic range. Possible to get some occasional clipping from the amplifier with certain songs.
  • -10 dBFS: Mainly for setting subwoofer gains due to higher possible sound output. Less dynamic range and possible clipping depending on the music you are listening to.
