Gain stage gripes!

Hi guys! I'm a fairly recent poster but long time lurker on gearslutz and have a question that I think will apply to quite a lot of us on here!

It is relating to the chain of Gain and Level controls in the average DAW based system. Say we have a track playing in Pro Tools, we have the Level of the master feeding into the interface, then then level of the interface's output, then you're either hitting and amp (with another gain stage) or powered speakers.

My question is, whats the best way to calibrate a system to make sure you are monitoring accurately? If anyone has and links, tips or good books I can read to get my head around this I'd be extremely grateful
Thanks in advance!

(to add more to the mix- I am currently using a tascam FW-1884 which features a master fader and a Monitor level pot before the signal hits the speaker amp!)
