Lives for gear
Subs are almost always all the way up... depending on the desk.

On an API, if it has subs, i always leave them all the way up unless my sub mix gets a bit loud and i might pull the subs down a hair rather than try to pull 6 faders or so down by the same proportion.
KNow what I mean?

On a Neve with the little rotary trim subs.. I usually see that they're all adjusted nearly all the way up but trimmed so that they are all the same level (whcih for some reaosn rarely IS all the same pot position on those desks)
Neves with linear fader subs; all the way up.

But the short answer is I keep the subs near the top because I don't like slamming the combiner amps too hard.
