good question. Being passive the EQ can only boost as much as is lost, which is about 7 db in this case. One volt is adequate output if your power amp is very sensitive or you have a preamp. Schotter actually has too much gain in his system and the loss will be a benefit. For him to use the EQ we add an input selector in the same box. If you have a system where the volume gets very loud at low settings the loss in the EQ becomes a benefit as you get to use the upper range of the volume control. Anytime you are stuck in the lower settings of your volume control you have too much gain in the system. Disagree if you like, but making the loudest level you require full up on the control has the benefit of finer adjustment, improved frequency response and the safety of someone turning your system up too high. Remember that a volume control is an attenuator. If you only get to 1 or 2 out of ten you are throwing away 80% of the input signal only to amplify it again.
