Turn the gain knob down until the clip light stops lighting up.  It should only come on when you really hit the bass hard.

This is in the  wrong forum

Where should it be then? It's in Amps and Cabs which his query covers

I'm sure one of the experts will be along shortly, but just a quick check, are you using a speaker cable or an instrument cable for the extension cab?

Make sure you are linking them with a speaker cable, not a guitar cable.

Set all EQs at 12 o'clock and filters off, turn the gain up slowly until the clip light starts to flash when you dig in, then back it off until it rarely flashes. Turn up the volume, and you will now sound awesome! 

Most Markbass users will not move the tone controls much more than +/- 1 or 2, preferring to use a combination of the VLE (vintage loudspeaker emulation, knocks the high frequencies back to sound more old school) and VPF (variable preshape filter, scoops the mids and boosts the bass/top to give a more modern tone) to get the perfect tone...
