Where should the l-r volumes on an studio amp be?

Yo I don't know where to put the L/R volumes on my Samson amp. Does anyone know?

None of the above. The gains on the studio amp should be optimized for the following factors:

1) Signal to noise ratio of the system

2) Distortion of the system

3) Position of the monitor control such that changes in level can be made without big jumps

Perhaps someone needs to explain proper gain staging.
