Are you MS-8 owners able to drive your amps to clipping and still have absolute silence from your front tweeters with the measly 2V outs of the MS-8?

I can't get my Arc Audio Mini amps to clip with the supposed 4 volt outs of the Audison Bit One (the Bit One clips before the amps do). If I turn up the gains up the Arcs even just a tiny bit I get hiss from the front tweeters.


PS this is without using any external controller for volume control and only using the head unit as volume control, necessitating having the sound processor (MS-8 or Bit One) at or near max volume at all times.
