    Anyone else have this issue when listening to satellite radio is that the volume is a lot lower than regular radio? I have to have my volume set to at least 40 before it's loud enough to hear it and well over 50 when the windows are down. Is there a setting I'm missing or something that can be done to fix this issue?

    Thanks

    Same thing iTunes vs Pandora. Streaming is usually lower...however, I found with Amazon music it isn't the case like it was with Pandora.

    My XM actually comes in stronger than FM which comes in stronger than AM. One thing to check is your Fader and EQ settings. They can be different for each Audio Source depending on how you adjust them.

    Yeah I have them all set differently based on what my source is. I had the same issue in my 4Runner but it wasn't as bad as this is. My wife's Lexus when set to XM has no difference between sources but it could be because of the ML system that it has. May have to make a stop to an audio shop and see what can be done to get more volume out of it.

    I also find the XM does not have the same tone as the other sources. Not that any of them are stellar but XM is like a tin can and it keeps me from ever buying the service.
