I want to have a seperate knob for the volume on my tower speakers im putting in this week. I was planning on running a 4 channel amp to run the tower and in boat speskers. Would a gain control work? Do the gains adjust seperate on each channel of an amp? Is there a better way to do this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I dont like to control the volume with a gain control because you can easily adjust it too high and produce distortion. We hooked up the RCA outs so that the Front channel is the amp for the inside speakers and the rear channel is the towers. Just fade between front and rear to adjust volume. The wet sounds 420 is the ideal solution but its pricy.

^^^^the 420 will only work with multiple amps.

you need an inline ( on the speaker wires) attenuator. They sell them online and at radio shacks, I think?

PAC LC1 You can put one knob on each pair of RCAs you have. Much easier than gain control.
