First check all the cables. If you have a DVD player connected, play a movie and see if the volume is normal. We want to eliminate the possiblity of external problems. Write back and let me know, and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: Phono plays lower in volume than cd and tuner.

Hello. As per the post before me, if you have a receiver with a Phono input(many receivers don't have one anymore) the output of a phono cartridge is around 30 millivolts, vs 300 millivolts for a CD(10 times the amount) or any other line level device. A Phono preamp, also has RIAA(recording engineering standards)Equalization that provides the proper equalization for a Phono cartridge. As per the other post, yes, it will sound very low, and unnatural sounding. If the input you are plugging the turntable input into, doesn't say Phono, you can purchase an inexpensive Phono preamp made just for this very issue. You can try Radio Shack, or find something of better quality on the Internet.

Regards,

Dave

SOURCE: 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.

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 have the xdvd710 when i start my truck up volumn is blastin every time!!!!! how do i get it to stop?????


The dual XDDVD710 RADIO has a volume memmory (it seems), it will go to the last volume setting that it was set to, not play to,(supposly to keep it from blasting you when you turn it on and you forgat u had the volume on blast).
To set it,
1 turn radio on,
2 turn the volume to desire Level you whant it to go when you turn it on (other Levels besside BLAST hopefully) ,
3 push the volume button in, that should do it.
Now you can play your music loud and should you forget that you had it on BLAST (to over come road noise) when you last played your radio, it should start at the preset volume.

Tuner Keeps Turning Off when a Loud Noise is Played


It's a receiver, not a tuner.

Clearly something is overloading it or forcing it into self protection.

What else is drawing power from the same souce as the receiver, or from its convenience outlet. There IS a limit to how much current it will support.

Try checking the speaker connections and their impedance to make sure it's not unacceptably low.
