Question about Car Audio & Video

The volume is noticeably lower when listening to the radio. It sounds normal on CD, Aux and MP3. I know it has a built in amp. Could this be the issue. Thanks.

You have not mentioned what type of radio you have, what car it's installed in, and what other audio equipment you have. I will assume it's an aftermarket radio, and it's common that the tuner's signal strength is not going to be as powerful as the other sources. If the built in amp is used, then it's used all the time, with all sources, including the tuner. Some brands will have a loudness offset function wherein you can lower the power output of the CD/Aux/MP3 inputs to volume match the radio, but there's no fun in that. There's not a way to make the tuner play louder, unfortunately, aside from adjusting the volume when using the tuner section. Technology has brought many advances, including a much higher signal to noise ratio, which is why digital trumps analog in this instance. This is what you are experiencing, which is not necessarily a technical issue, but a technology issue.

I'm sure you went to Control Panel, opened device manager, and and checkeck for any yellow checks for your
sound, video and game controllers. If there are none, your system is go. Then go to your audio manager on control panel, and set it up for whatever speaker configuration you have. I have realtec audio manager. This step is a must for configuring—you choose whether your laptop will use its own speaks or use your external speakers—you have to turn off the internal speakers and turn on the external. Did you forget?

SOURCE: How do I connect an mp3 to my 2008 sonata?

The 2008 Sonata does not come equipped to plug in a separate MP3 player. The MP3 on the face of the radio/CD player refers to the fact that the CD player will play MP3 files. If you want to play from a separate player, you will have to add an FM modulator or something similar.

Pioneer DEH-P4100 volume is noticeably lower when listening to the radio. Volume normal listening to CD, Aux and USB. Small external amp controlling sub but that shouldn't affect tuner. What ya think?


The tuner feed is at lower level than other sources. Happens. Unit may have a control for this internally and you might want to check it out with manufacturer of unit.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume


You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

No volume


There are two ways to turn up the volume.

First the mp3 player has the volume dial turn that up all the way

Second there is a volume knob on the dewalt radio it is the black knob on top of radio on the right.

If those two knobs are unsuccessful make sure radio is on AUX there is a button on front right above the two arrows on front of the radio push that button until it says AUX that might be the reason your not getting sound

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume


first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

Frustrated sound won't lower


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..

Connect ipod to cd player wit built in aux input.


VERY SIMPLE SOLUTION FOR DEH-P5800MP!!!!!!

Turn unit off by holding the Source (volume knob) button until power is off.

Now, hold down the Function button (FUNC) until the unit turns on. You will now be in the Initial Settings menu, a special menu. Press the Function button (FUNC) again until you see the word AUX, press up to enable it, then press the Source (volume knob) button until you see AUX. It works now, congratulations.
