    Dont know what you mean. Db is a measurement. It could apply to bass boost, bass eq, x-over slope. Ya need to be more specific.

    There is no magic number. It will depend on about a million different factors. Youre just going to have to experiment and ultimately youll find that sweet spot.

    Id start out with the gain set properly with bass boost off and bass eq on your h/u set at 0 then start fidgiting with it from there.

    this link is a gains-setting walkthrough. if you're amping your subs AND your mains, there's only one reason to use bass boost on the amp - low-frequency kick. If you follow that tutorial (note that it says not to use any bass boost at all), and find that the truly deep bass is lacking, dial in up to 6 dB of bass boost on your amp, then do the tutorial over again (with the +6 dB dialed in). if that doesn't satisfy your bass needs, then you need a better setup.
