Has low volume with volume all the way up
You've been close to another big radio......you think that was a question but I believe it is the answer. The rf amp transitor or the diodes in that circuit have been damaged. So that stage of amplification is not stepping it up for the next. Resulting in the electrical power converted to air audio by speaker isnt available. Cb shops refer to this as a blow front end. Tr17 is the transistor location .......just a side note some radios have a mic circuit check that dulls audio levels this is not the case here.

I want to peak and tune my connex 3400hp
people think that if they peak and tune a radio it will work better. First, if its brand new from the factory you shouldn't have to,all you should have to do is lower the dead key raise the modulation and you are good to go . The proper way to do this is with a spectrom analyzer . Do you have one? Cheap on ebay ,may 4000-5000 dollars but if you get one and set that radio perfect you should hear anyone complain that you are interfering with their radio.

Do i have to connect my Connex directly to the battery ??
As a general rule of thumb all radios should be connected directly to the vehicle 12 battery. This connection cuts down on vehicle induced noise and allows the radio to have access to the full current it needs to operate at full efficiency. Make sure there are matched fuses in the positive and negative leads going to the radio.
Hope this answers your question.
