    After installing my CDE-HD149BT, PDX M6, and SWR-10D4 I started the gain at about 30% and heard nothing. Not even at 100%. I can feel the subwoofer moving if I touch it but does not perform at all. So I took my phone, connected it via headphone -> RCA's and adjusted the gain. I felt a little...
