2006 Civic Ex
I am having the same problem, the volume is low. There is a setting that
you set to adapt to speed and road noise, you can turn this setting on and
the radio will increase in volume to overcome the road noise with speeding
up. Its in the manual , but that didn't help much. I am going to have mine
checked at the dealer this week.

This guy is complaining 'cause he only gets to 40. That's just silly.
It's obiously 10 louder than that expensive aftermarket stereo...

No, 40 is not the problem. For those that have the newer Honda stereo @
40 the volume is low (40 is the max on the display). You can talk at a
reasonable normal voice and not shout. My last vehicle by 28 I could not
stand the noise and volume. So maybe my radio is broken after all...Paul
It may be. Or not. What is the wattage of your stock stereo?
My Civic Si comes with a 350 Watt 7 Speaker (with Sub) stereo. At 10 it is
comfotable. At 40, the bass shakes the car.
Depending on what you bought, you may just have a low power stereo, and
need an amp to get what you want out of it. But, by all means, have it
checked by Honda first. It is possible that there is something wrong with

Just had it checked at the Honda dealer and it is working as it should.
It is only made to max at 40. Honda makes them that way. So the only
option I have is add an amp or replace the system with something with
more power. This would void the warranty of the stereo. So I'm SOL for
I think something is wrong with your head unit or you have the SCV
(speed controlled volume) turned to high. In my 06 Civic Si, I listen
to it loud at 20, 40 is too loud (with SCV off). It is a possibility
that is not your head unit, but your factory amplifier. If it's just
running off of the head unit, then it would be weak.
My Accord radio has been losing some volume for a given setting for a
while now. I asked the dealer about it before I exceeded warranty
miles, of course the dealer just shrugged. Seems to be more of a
problem when listening to CDs, is that how it is for you?
