Hey everyone, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I was wondering if I could get some opinions. I recently purchased a new 2018 Mazda 3 GT that came equipped with the Bose audio system. Is it just me or is the volume for this system really quiet? I have to turn it up to 35-45 to listen at a comfortable level. Are my ears that bad or is anyone else experiencing this issue? I've had other cars with Bose audio systems but this one I feel I have to crank up the volume quite a bit to hear the radio over road noise, etc.

it's not normal, the volume set to 6 or 7 allows you to listen to the music comfortably. maybe try the factory reset. if no result, a visit to your dealer is required

I've got he Bose system in my new one. I need 20-30 on the volume for normal listening. It varies with the source - the digital radio is much quieter than the MP3s.

Because the road noise and NVH is loud in the car so you need to crank up the volume. That being said, I can listen comfortably with the volume to about 15-16 with the crappy stock system.

Do you use the Centerpoint and AudioPilot functions?

They will help compensate for NVH and added noise at higher speeds.

I normally listen to my music at 10 to 15 on the knob. 20+ would be blasting it for me.

I haven't checked to see if those features are enabled but I'll take a look and let you know what I find out. Thanks for the responses guys.
