The volume # wont change, the radio compensates for cabin /road noise and enhances the volume to a comfortable listening level for the volume you had it set at when idling. When you slow down the music will soften as well. If you set it on the highest setting you will definitely notice the change

Anyone willing to go the extra mile when it comes to cabin quietness should look into dynamating their interior. Takes a bit of work and patience but well worth it in the end if doing it on your own, not exactly cheap if paying a shop.

I just read through these threads. Where are all the cars with issues built? My hatchback built in England seems to be put together pretty well.

it's a foil back insulation/sound deadener used initially with high end audio systems to help minimize sound reverberations in cars. it now has become synonymous with customizing cars...nearly all highly customized cars now have it as standard.

it quiets the car, it makes car sound more like a thud when closing doors instead of a 'ping'. also helps with heat dissipation

dyanmats own interpretation: Dynamat Xtreme is the highest efficiency sound damping material available and the most effective product for stopping noise and vibration in your automobile. With Dynamat Xtreme installed, road noise becomes silent energy. The effect this has on your sound system is phenomenal.

I fixed my own floppy rear stop light cover, since Honda doesn't have a fix for it. It would flop around when driving, but the worst part was it would allow red light to cover the rear windshield when backing up and interfered with outward viewing.


I pulled off the two Velcro tabs and stuck them to the window with Permatex Ultragrey sealant (similar to Hondabond). I let it sit over night to cure and then pushed the brake light cover upwards and it has held up nicely thus far. No need for me to go back to Honda now.

How can you tell? (I'm thinking that "calibrated ear" is not a very reliable measurement instrument.) Have you played with the settings for the amount of the SVC effect?

Nice fix, that should go in a DIY section (sort of) for those that want to deal with this themselves since often dealers aren't that helpful.
