There is no fix to this problem. I emailed GBX, who makes the same stereo (same model number) and they said it is a factory setting that can't be overridden or changed. I bought mine for work and my office is made up of open cubicles - I'll be returning it tomorrow.

2.0 out of 5 starsNot bad for price $70+$30 S&H, October 20, 2003
By A Customer This review is from: KLH DVZ-2500 DVD Home Theater System (Electronics)
I read alot of the recent reviews before purchasing this system. I wasn't going to buy it because of the volume problem (too loud) but some people said that this could be lowered in the 'audio properties > dynamics' setting.
Sure enough, there is a setting, but it does NOT lower the volume level at all.
So, I rang the toll free 888 number and this audio level problem is a defect. However, the dynamic setting is purely to make some sounds softer, not to lower volume. I was told to get a replacement. The replacement is the exact same way ... defective.
Buy this system if you only want to hear _DVDs_ with all speakers, because there are no inputs. And the radio, CD is at best stereo, AND if you don't mind the fact that it will be too loud, if at any stage you want a normal listening level.
I gave 2 stars because I was able to watch a DVD ok with volume level one.
On the TV-use your finger to adjust the volume level, about midway, then use the remote to shut off the tv, then turn on tv with remote. Volume level should be better! If still not loud enough...using your finger on the tv...turn up volume & repeat remote steps.
There are a couple of different ways to lower the volume. One is to check your settings to see if you have a volume limit setting and turn it on. Another way, check the settings and see if you have a equalizer setting, and see if it is turned on, then experiment with other settings. If you have a built in 4 band equalizer you can set the sliders all the way to the bottom and it should turn down the volume a good bit. Last, is to go and by cheep ear buds / head phones, the cheeper ones, take more volume / power to get loud.
OK, a few things here. First of all, what program are you using to listen to music? Some programs have an automatic volume leveling setting. If you're using Windows Media Player, it has one. Next, you should NEVER set any speaker/volume/amplifier knob to Maximum setting if you want to get any life out of your speakers. Speaker ratings are for consistent volume levels at a "clean" power level. When you turn any music source up past 80% you are pushing more distortion through the speakers that they cannot reproduce without self destructing. The human ear cannot hear this, and the volume gain is minimal. Next we'll talk about that your dealing with a combination of power levels compiling into an amplifier that may be taking in more than it can aptly amplify according to it's power multiplier scheme to increase the volume at the speaker level. If you've got everything maxed out, you're probably just pushing it all WAY too hard. All over exerted energy that is not being used productively will end up in generating heat and distortion. Those are your 2 biggest enemies when it comes to anything audio. Distortion tears voice coils and generates disruptive electrical currents, and heat destroys circuitry and components in amplifiers. The times where they jump up in volume, just look at that as borrowed time until they blow. If you want louder, get a better or more powerfully rated set, and still, NEVER turn it up past 80% if you want it to last.
You didn't indicate exact model of your phone. However I have indicated the procedure used for common Vtech's 5.8Ghz phones
Ringer volume • With the handset or base in idle (off) mode, press MENU then press ▲ or ▼ until RINGER VOLUME is shown • Press SEL. You will hear a sample of the ringer • Press ▲,▼ or a digit (0 through 6) You will hear a sample of the new ringer volume and the volume bar will be increased or decreased each time the setting is adjusted At the lowest setting the ringer will be turned off and the display will show: - OR - • With the handset or base in idle (off) mode, press or of the volume control will directly go to ringer volume menu • Press ▲ or ▼ to adjust the ringer volume
it just seems a setting problem.
