Ok, that explains it. But what is the frequency for subs then?
You mentioned sub sonic filter (30Hz) but what sort of frequency are you using for subs?

Correct, gains on amp to drive your drivers.

On lower gains, less chances of static / hiss, unless your amp if of very high quality.

Also don't forget that gain is the way to control how much 'input' are you using to reach max power of amp.

MS-8 will do most of the job for you. If you are not sure, get it installed professionally, or use voltmeter to check if your gains are adjusted as per your driver's abilities.

There is no harm in trying that.
Personally I get better results with SWS-8s when setup as subs on MS-8s.
