I just downloaded PowerAmp (love it so far) and am also continuing to use Viper4Android. Is there anything I should know about -- things to avoid, tips, etc.? For instance, is it OK to use both equalizers at the same time?

Why would you want to use both the equalizers at the same time?? The sound will surely be not up to the mark! Use the V4A FIREequalizer!
If you are having problems with PowerAmp, you first need to do this: Go to PowerAmp Settings - Audio - Advanced Tweaks. Now disable Direct Volume Control and enable Music FX!

If you have any more concerns about V4A, you need to read the official thread : forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2191223
and the Nexus 5 thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...droid-t2543796
Everything's been explained clearly!

When you install V4A direct volume control is now 'non supported' by default (at least on the latest slimkat).

Enabling musicfx did nothing for me (I left it on anyway).

V4A did not work in compatibility mode for me, I had to run it in 'normal' mode, and turn the poweramp EQ off, so far everything is working good. I can't really tell a difference when I switch preset settings on the equalizer though..so that might not actually be working for me
