  1. Kind of an oxymoron to say "I set my gains properly using a Multimeter" to start. How bad is clipping? It kills stuff, so it's pretty bad. It occurs when the sine waves go from curved to square and you get thermal and or mechanical failures.

  2. First, welcome to the forum. Stick around, read learn and enjoy. I always suggest picking subs/drivers last. Start with your electrical and make sure it's a solid as can be and figure out what kind of power you can support. Once you know how much power you can run, figure out how much space you can use if needed for your enclosure, then shrink if/as needed. Then, fit as much cone area as possible in that space without suffocating subs of course. Box design, build quality, and placement will have a bigger impact on output than anything. Each brand ha

  3. Clipping is bad. Even at low levels. What clipping is is when your speaker rises and stops, lowers and stops. It needs to be able to keep moving up and down with no stopping. That's how it cools the voice coil(s). If the speaker itself stops the motion, and the coil(s) is(are) still producing heat, eventually the heat is going to be too great for the cooling to overcome and your coil(s) will become toast. Now, when people set their gains with an overlap (-5db or more in some cases), they do that because using a specific test tone to set gains is a dedicated frequency to that specif
