    When turning the unit on it defaults to a volume level of 17. This level is unacceptably high. If there is no factory fix for this I will have to return the unit

Brilliant Solution. I assume you use more power, but it's a reasonable soultion. I didn't expect it to work considering normal operation of this stuff.
The loudness might work for a heavy sleeper and the unit in another room.
Thanks. I am now happy with my choice. I love the inputs. That's why I baught it in the first place.
Thanks again.

Unfortunately you can't change it. There have been many other users here who have the same complaint, but it's the way the manufacturer made the thing. Don't know why it doesn't remember the last volume setting before it was turned off, but that's the way they did it. Perhaps the most unique solution someone suggested is to switch to the auxiliary input (assuming you don't have anything connected to it) instead of turning off the power. This will quiet it, then you just switch back to the other source when you want to listen again. Maybe a call or email to the manufacturer will get more information. Sometimes, when enough people have the same complaint, they offer some kind of remedy.

Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.

Volume is too loud


change the function to cd or aux before you turn it off and then change the volume before going to your preferred function. It is the only way around it.

Default volume for durabrand hm3817dt


It appears there is no "good solution."

BUT! I didn't discover that this unit is not actually made by Durabrand. It's made by GPX and I've included a link to the user manual for this product (It's the same model, but the GPX version is black and sports the GPX logo).

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?

Turn off alarm


With the power off, push the alarm button twice and the clock symbol should go out. This means the alarm is off. Also when the alarm is on and the power is off, you can push the function button to select nothing (buzzer), cd or radio.

Hope it helps, I am trying to find out how to reset the default volume from 17 which is way too loud

The volume is too high when the alarm comes on


There are several complaints in FIXYA and they are all about this same fault condition....the volume is too high when turned on...

Because of the high number of complaints about this same fault I would suggest that its a manufacturer fault.

So the manufacturer should be contacted about it to ask for your money back..

Cheers From YUBEUT..
