anyone notice that when you turn up the volume pretty loud on the 6 disc premium, it tends to compress the volume automatically even with compression turned OFF. It happens when there is a lot of bass in the music. Almost seems like there is a limiter of power so the stereo doesnt blow the speakers. This happened on the blankpunkt factory radio for my old focus too, which is why i went aftermarket.

I have mine OFF, but when i turn the stereo up real loud, it sounds like something is limiting the amount of power going to the speakers.

I've seen that setting on my system as well- and have no idea what it does.  Too lazy to check the owners manual.  Anyone know what it's supposed to do

COMPRESSION will make sure the real highs and lows come out more exact as they were intended to. It's a benefit to have it on.

hmmmm... i read in the manual that compression makes quiet parts of music louder and louder parts quieter so the music is at a constant level (there are no quiet our loud parts in the song). Where did your read about compression being used so the highs and lows come out as it was intended to?

I noticed when I play my stereo loud with compression on it is even worse then what I explained in the original post.

I dunno maybe i just need to an after market in dash DVD receiver.  :D

Me personally. I have a hard hitting sub system in my Fusion. I have turned it up all the way and do notice that there is some sort of power restriction. But I am happy with that. As for the compression. At high levels with a real bassy song like rap and hip-hop. If I turn it on, it turns down my bass which sux. I want to blow my fricken ears out lol. But yeah I just think the compression sux.

ok i wanted to make sure i wasnt hearing crazy things... i am curious though if it is the head unit doing a "power restriction" or if there just isnt enough power at high levels. If I choose to get some aftermarket speakers I will definetly be getting a amp to run them. If this still happens i guess the gain will have to be turned up a little more on the amp to compensate for this problem.
