okay, i've got a pretty sweet tone after a lot of fiddling around but the only thing that does not come out how i want it to is palm mutes, they sound very weak.
is there any way to make em come out more chunky without changing too much, they sound pretty tight if i turn my bass up (i have it at about 7 o clock, just above 0) but then the rest of what i'm playing sounds worse.

First, the palm of your hand should be on the right spot (i.e. end of the bridge or very slightly in front of it). If it's to far from the bridge, the sound will su*k. Second, don't press to hard.

If this is not gonna help, maybe turn up presence on the amp?

There are a few things you can do to make your palm muting have more power. Turn up the bass and resonance (if you have that), turn down the mids and contour, or experiment with palm muting techniques.

I have been trying to figure this out for a while. What is a Kaos Pad?
Gear:
Schecter C-1 BlackJack
Peavey 5150 II
Ibanez 25W "Tone Blaster"
Fender Starcaster (Not the vintage kind, the Wal-Mart Value kit kind"

If Dimebag22 was a pie, I would cover him with whipped cream and eat his insides...

Bass down to almost zero?

Your tone must sound like a tin cat being thrown down a well. With it's tone knob turned up to 48.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Seriously, You shouldn't start from 0 imo. I think you should put your settings on all 5, then cut or boost the ones you need a bit more or less of. Putting your bass not even on 1 sounds just awful. I think you need to properly eq your amp and then try.

boosting is what makes them really chunky
