4V preouts to 2V input amp?

Has anyone successfully used a 4V preout HU with an amp that is only rated for 2V inputs? I suspect that it would work if one kept the HU's volume control low enough to keep it from putting out greater than 2V rms. I wonder if the volume adjustabilty would be too narrow though. In other words, turn the knob a few clicks and your at max volume.

LOL ..... oscilliscope those pre-outs and you will see the truth.. LOLOL 4volts pre-outs

anyways... eclipse has 8volt pre-outs and were hooked up to a arc amp with max 2.5input... with gains a nil and volume up to half.. sounds damn clean.

LOLOL I just cant stop laughin at the pre-out voltages manufacturers print out and then what the "actual" volt output is at... remember max volume for max voltage output... but who listens to their HUs at max volume? perhaps 1/3 maybe 1/2.. even that gets annoying after awhile..

so dont assume 4 volts is what you get ALL the time... so if you keep the gains on the amp from not being turned up... you're giving the amp a good pat on its back and you'll have cleaner S/N to power output. It'll make those output fets from keeping the chassis of the amp hot..
