    im running brokenout 1.3 ive tried all versions of brokenout and stock and all of them have low volume when playing through my car.... the fascinate i had was a little louder stock.. and with voodoo sound it made it alot louder.. are there any apps similar to this that work with the spectrum? ive tried a few apps ive found on xda.. cant remember which one.. but none of them make any difference

    I've tried volume+ with no luck as well. Wondering my self if there is anything out there. My Droid x had way louder sound.

    and has anyone else noticed the "dolby" sound crap sounds like you put your speaker in an aluminum can?

    Anyone know of a fix yet?
    I listen to music through my bluetooth headset using BT mono but its so quiet i can barley hear it. Everything is all the way up. I tried Volume+ with no luck.
    Its not the BT headset either as i used it with my old droidX and it worked fine.

    Im wondering if it's related to the Beats DSP. It was giving the speakerphone problems so MtM took it out but has re-added it in 1.3. No speakerphone problems now but it looks like maybe it's affecting that now....

    I'm back in the stock rom. Was on 1.3 but was getting no so good battery life. Does beats increase the volume I was thinking it just made it sound better.

    In theory yes its just supposed to improve the audio quality but MtM (if I understand correctly) is taking the Beats lib files from the Rezound and packaging them in this ROM. That caused a volume issue earlier just because he has to bootstrap it to make it work. I assume something similar is happening now. If you didn't notice he put BrokenOut 2.0 up this morning. I am as of now running it but don't have an aux cable to test.

    I was having the same issue on both stock and broken out 1.2, I exchanged my phone for a galaxy nexus, this resolved the problem but now I occasionally drop 4g data for a few minutes even with a good signal.

    2.0 seems to be louder... i got a dwi the other day so i cant drive it down the road and test it with the windows down... but with ubermusic it sounded like theres not any equalizing going on.. it sounds flat.. compared to stock...
    and im going off of a stock toyota yaris radio and a 5 year old radioshack aux cable... i know i cant expect too much... but every little bit counts

    ha ha yeah thats kinda not a fix though.
    Maybe i should have gotten the nexus after all.
    Verizon guy talked me out of it though said spectrum was better.

    My friend has a Gnex and while it's really pretty and seems to be an overall pretty good phone he has two issues that are detrimental to his use, he has the 4g data dropping problem ( and it really is noticeable and annoying) and another thing is they have some sort of wakelock problem and Android OS will be using more battery than screen on.

    So is there anyways to increase the volume?

    Have you tried it on 2.0?

    No probably will go to 2.0 this weekend. I was on 1.3 but came back to stock as battery life was horrible.

    I had all those issues and more, but yesterday I installed AOKP M5 and the official 4.0.4 radios and it works flawlessly now. Spectrum had a slightly better screen and had a bit stronger hardware and radios, but I couldn't get over the low volume, battery life and no ICS in sight. Honestly if the phone came with ICS and as much dev support as the nexus I probably would have kept it.

    ICS looks amazing on that phone. Like you said the lack of ICS in sight for this phone makes me antsy but I just saw that Eclipse is out as a WIP so there is hope. Broken Out on Blitz or Popcorn has made me able to keep it and now the advent of a ICS-esque Eclipse is gonna make me keep the phone and unleash it's full potential. Then we can stop the nexus with our more beautiful
    IPS technology! :D

    Common issue with the gnex. Its what i have. Its the same for 3G->4G 4G->3G Handoffs. We supposedly have an OTA update coming to resolve that...

    Anyway, on topic, I will *try* to look into the low volume thing. no guarantees
