    i guess this one could have been in the audio section or product review section but i guess it sorta pertains to the 2nd gen with the aux port. the product(boostaroo, radio shack $29) claims to X2 your ipod or other mp3 volume. it definatly makes it much louder, X2 is debateable. i have my ipods power source and my gps hardwired into the fuse panel thanks to the good gps hardwireing writeup on this forum) and the aux cord run through the knockout next to aux input. i keep the boostaroo in the coin holder in front of the fuse panel. very clean, only about 3" of wire showing on each cord. i am satisfied with the amp, better sound than before, still isnt as loud as radio or cds though. my camera is broken (cheap ebay knockoff battery ruined it) but will get some pics when i borrow or buy a new camera.

    Have you tried using MP3Gain?

    It's a program that allows you to change/set sound levels on the files directly.

    Since a lot of music can 'vary' in sound levels, depending on where you get your files.... We ran all our music files through MP3 gain.
