I will be out on Janelle's boat either tonight or Thursday so I will check her settings then. Her boat has a sony head unit just like ours but it is obviously a year older. I have no idea why it would change so much in one year. Hell at 25 on our boat it isn't even that loud when just sitting in a cove.
Call your dealer! Axis has been really great at working with their customers to resolve issues.
On my boat (2/2010 A22) when the dealer was prepping the boat after delivery, he noticed that 3 of the 4 tower speakers sounded like sh*t, so he pulled them out of the housing to find that the bolts used to mount the housings to the clamps were way too long, and had run up into the back end of the speakers and wasted them. He got 3 new speakers and shorter bolts to fix the issue. This was all done b4 I even picked up the boat, but he explained the issue to me. The Stereo 2 package in our boat, is very load and tight! I only made some minor tweaks to the head unit to get the sound I wanted, but in iPod mode, the thing cranks! I can crank it up to 55 and it sound really clear and strong. I usually run it at 30 when riding behind the boat.
any how, give your dealer a call or pull the speakers out of the housings, one at a time and check the back ends and the lengths of the bolts? this could be the issue. My boat was mfg. in Feb 2010 and we picked it up in March 2010. Hope this helps-
