As I said elsewhere, it really doesn't matter where the controls are set relative to one another, within reason.
It's usually best to put them both mid-way, or whatever keeps your primary control of choice from being too touchy.
Of course, it is best to adjust your tone at the intended playing volume with the band (if that's how you'll be playing). You might find that your settings are quite a bit different from playing by yourself, especially at lower volumes.

Thanks! I experimented a bit more today and using what you said, it was a great starting point for me to start customizing it to my volume needs. I think I finally settled on setting my amp to around 2 or 3 o'clock in full power mode and then setting my patches to anywhere between 25-30%. I haven't played with a drummer yet, so we'll see if I have to adjust from there. Thanks again!

I have the HD500 and DT25 combo. I play at church with the amp fairly close to me, angled up on a stand. I run my DT25's Master Volum between 2-3 o'clock and set my patches volume with either the HD's volume control or straight from the DT25. Once I get that dialed in with the full band playing, I save the patch so that I can always cut back on the DT25's Master Volume or raise it a little if needed.
