    Hi all

    Just wondering if this is normal. just noticed it the other day.
    Playing music normally on the stereo system in the accord and the volume difference between setting 1 and 2 is quite large.

    Has anyone noticed this?

    Its the premium sound /sat nav system on a facelift accord (2006)

    I always wondered this. It's the one small thing that bothers me with the sound system which is otherwise brilliant for a standard factory system

    It is pretty annoying. As the sometimes i want a volume level in-between 1 and 2.
    I do agree though the premium sound system is pretty good for stock.
    Shame theres no fix for the volume issue. Would have to be a software amendment i assume

    So it's not just me lol, but yeah Accord's premium sound system is pretty good, the bass level is great...I just drove friends E220 the other day and it couldn't match it lol.

    Now with my new Aux in you have double volume control so can get whatever you want. But 1 and 2 are really really quiet, how can you hear that when driving?

    Also agree with the quality of the premium sound system, addition of a small sub and its as good as you could ask for!
