Hi gybryant and TiStick,

As you said, gybryant, volume can be pretty subjective. If you're unhappy with your stereo's performance, not only would I check out like models and judge their volume against yours, but I'd also have a Ford tech inspect the speakers.

Or, you know, you can always trade vehicles with TiStick. Sounds like his speakers are working just fine.

I'm happy to get your case escalated, gybryant, if you'd like to go that route. Send me a PM with your VIN, mileage, dealer, and daytime phone number; I'll handle things from there.

Have a great weekend!
