freemind It depends how much the amp can take as far as input voltage, what the output voltage of the deck is, if you are using multiple amps on a single RCA output and how long the the RCA wire is.

In general, RCA ouput voltage is marketed at the max voltage the headunit puts out. Just because my deck puts out 8 volts does not mean that it is constantly 8 volts. M usic is dynamic. So any deck will put out 0v to Xv.

lol yeah I got it. And your hu says 4 volts preouts but that is at max volume. That is perfectly fine. I would set your gains very conservatively because your input sensitivity is 150mV-2.5V for the mmats 3500

Oh and when the amps clip, you can damage the speakers and possibly blow them too.
This right here^
