Question about Durabrand HT-3915 System

1 Answer

Setting the volume

Every time I turn my unit on the volume level is set at 17, which is too loud. How can I set it at a lower level so the next time I turn it on it won't be so loud?

Thank you.

    I have the same problem with my Durabrand CD Home Music System (HM3817DT). The volume is way too loud - especially for the nursery! I hope someone has a suggestion. Thanks!

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.

RT2770 cuts out above a volume setting of 30.


Bass and other settings may be set too high and are overdriving the unit.

If all else fails try the old unplug it for a while and then plug back to see if that helps.

What if anything else is hooked up at the same time to this system?

Klh dvc-2500 How can I lower the volume? Setting "1" is too loud. Is there some aftermarket gizmo I can wire into the speaker wires?


Your problem is VERY common. It's defective, get a replacement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not 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.

Very little volume, not very loud at highest


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.

The minimum volume setting is too loud for my ears. Is there anyway to gain a lower volume setting?


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.

BOSTON ACOUSTICS BA735 volume is LOWER than MAXIMUM LEVEL


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.

Bose 3.2.1 Volume is too low


ok on your receiver you have different settings this is not easiest to say and think and type at the same time so here goes

your reciever has different settings example sterio, mono expanded sound game sound etc.

i believe that if in wrong setting or the mpx is not on then you will get a low output of sound
also quite possible the songs were recorded at a lower output sound volume

i hope this made some sence

The default volume is set way too high on this radio. It is at 17 and we would like to reset it to a much lower level. How do I do this?
