|rcfoolz||they have changed out every componet of the cars audia system and have came to the conclusion that the radio is at fault. That makes way too many radios doing this. I find it hard to believe that 6 radios in a row have the same issue. I swear my car has a gremlin in it somewhere just screwing with me. I am to find out today what ford is going to do, as I have filed a case against the car.|

Spd. Comp. Vol. - Automatically adjusts the volume to compensate for speed and wind noise. You can set the system between 0 and +7.
0 means off and 7 means highest automatic volume adjustment according to vehicle speed. My salesman set mine to 3 and suggested it's the best setting.
As for the HD radio signal, when mine connects, it only seems a little bit louder because it sounds a little bit clearer. Perhaps it does get a little bit louder too. /shrug

|feta_mgp||Check the wind noise compensation thing in the settings if you can. I turn mine off because it sounded "erratic" to me when it was on. Otherwise, record it if you can so you have some solid proof for the dealership, and if it's frequent enough to replicate, bring it in and let them deal with it.|

|dragonpalm||I've never had the erratic volume problem but one time on a drive, the volume knob suddenly stopped working so I couldn't change the volume. I had to stop the car and restart it and it magically fixed itself.|

|JayDeZ||Do you have the radio set to automaticly turn the volume up with speed? If you have it set to the highest setting (7, i think) the difference it quite noticeable. I keep mine set at 2 or 3.|

Sounds like an amp issue. Had some add-on amps with bad solder joints do the same thing back in my basshead days.
Not sure if the amp in these cars is in the headunit or not. I'd take it to the dealer for a warranty fix.
