You need something called a "Line Output Converter". It will reduce the speaker level signal and is usually adjustable. Most car audio shops have them for about $20.

Low output with high volume


sounds like distortion is being caused by trying to amplify a low volume level from the input device. try putting the ipod volume at a medium level and try again to see if the distortion goes away/reduced

Distorted sound playing music from Youtube or BBC Iplayer


First off, most Youtube videos have bad sound but most likely is you need to lower the volume for FLASH via the sound mixer. Both are using flash. Turn down the volume for flash videos. You also have volume control with the video themselves.

How to tune properly


make sure your speakers are wired to the amp with correct ohm load, turn gain, bass boost all the way down on amp, zero out your equilizer on the cd player and turn it all the way down then start raising volume on cd player., when u can start hearing music thru the subwoofers adjust the cd player volume till the sound from your subs is at its peak without any distortion. then start raising the gain on your amp till you are happy with the sound. It gives you the optimal signal strength coming from the cd player and the smoothest sound.

Lots of distortion


You are either expecting too much from the system or something is overdriven somewhere.

Check the level controls "gain structure" is about having each item in the chain that has a volume control set at the ideal level, rather than having one thing on max and another on min to compensate.

Also, check wiring. Partial short circuits can cause issues such as this. A full short circuit would likely cause the unit to shut down completely.

What duz level adjustment do


Hello,

The level control controls the input level coming from your head unit (receiver) to the amp.

Your Sony users manual is a little vague on how to best adjust the level and other controls.

Here is one method that some installers use and works well with most amps.

Most 10" subs sound best between about 80-100hz and below, so start out by setting the LPF at about 80hz. The HPF will not be used. Next turn the bass boost and gain all the way down. Turn on the radio and set all tone controls, bass, midrange, treble to flat, usually "0" on most head units. Turn the volume up to approximately 3/4 volume level or just until you begin to hear distortion. Now, back the volume down until the distortion is gone. Next turn up the gain control on the amp until you hear the subs start to distort then back the gain down until the distortion disappears. Next turn the bass boost up again until the subs begin to distort, then either back the bass boost down or back the gain down until the distortion is gone. You may need to play around with the bass boost and gain controls to get exactly the sound you prefer.

Hope this helps.
