The idea is to run the OEM amp woofer outputs as low as voltage peaks as possible. I only know of one forum member with a '12 EPS system with an LC2i without problems. It could be possible that your OEM amp is #5 at least in update since 2008, having different woofer outputs specs.
Are you referring to me?
I've had zero issues with my lc2i (touchwood)
Should I take a picture of my knob settings?
Maybe people are boosting some things too much and putting too much load on the lc2is?
