Anyone else notice that you can’t get the I pod loud enough.http://www.tundrasolutions.com/forums/images/smilies/cry.gif
:cry: The gain on this connection is pretty anemic. This is a real pain in the a$$. I can tell you that all my other iPod accessories, like iHome and Memorex Boombox have more volume than I can handle. But the accessory connection with iPod @ full volume as well as radio up 100% I barely can hear low volume.

Any ideas as to a fix? please post.... Thanks

Do you have Sound Check on or off? With my current setup I have to make sure the Sound Check option is turned off.

Depends on the model of iPod you have. Generally, go to the main menu on the iPod, then settings, and in that list you'll see "Sound Check".

I don't remember when that feature was added, and I'm not sure how to change it on the shuffle versions.

Well, with the same settings, I get the results on iHome and Memorex Boombox great volume, but Tundra very poor..so I don't know how iPod settings could affect this, but it's a lead I'm going to run down. Thanks:ts:

Yahoo..Problem solved. Just as MACSTER said, I turned the soundcheck to off and experienced enough gain increase so that when I switch from CD or raido station to iPod, volume is now pretty much the same.

Thanks so much for the words of wisdom..:ts:

No problem. It's good to prove I actually know something every now and then ;)

This is sort of realted, but last week I was getting a bad "popping" from my front dash speakers on the JBL system when the iPod was playing. I thought the dash speakers were blown. I took it to the dealer to see what they thought. It turns out we figured out that the "bass boost" in the iPod had to be truned off because the speakers couldnt handle it. Doh! It sounds good now and no more popping.

I don't have an IPod but another brand of MP3 player. I discovered that the volume on the player needs to be turned to maximum and then you get the desired volume on your dash unit.

turn off the sound check, on the ipod, and also, when you connect your ipod, it's on a seperate channel, so you must set your base and treble volume once more, it works for me.

For best sound quality you should use a line-out and EQ should be flat, meaning all bass boost and other so-called sound enhancers should be turned off.
