Hi Oscar, Nicola,
ILive outputs are +4dBU at 0dB reading, as standard for professional audio equipment. As I got my iLive (iDR48/T112) I checked it with NTi XL2 meter and the levels were pretty fine as specified. You got 18dB headroom which relates in +22dBU output. Clipping LED’s starts flashing at +15dB reading.
As +4dBU at 0dB reading is a standard everbody should be able to work with. You can avoid to be asked for more signal if you offer a test signal at the beginning of the first sound tests. I do that, as everybody can level his equipment as required it prevents you from trouble afterwards.

Maybe you should have a check with a external level meter to exclude any hardware faults in your system.
