Chime and Turn Signal "Problem" 07 GMC Sierra, MRR, GM5+, Kenwood DDX9904S

Post by madmaxed » Tue Dec 04, 2018 1:12 pm

I found a post by sargenthp in May about the same basic setup.
viewtopic.php?f=376&t=17976

My problem isn't that I cannot find the menu to adjust chime and turn signal volume, I was able to find with the help of phone support.

My problem is that the chime and turn signal sounds are coming through the 2 wire speaker that came with the kit, instead of through the stereo. I checked OnStar last night (which I have never used), and it is playing through the receiver as expected.

I have done the master reset from them Maestro Audio setup in the receiver. I adjusted the chime and turn signal to a volumes to 1, as I mounted the kit speaker on the dash right behind the gear shift. It was deafening at default levels.

2007.5 GMC Sierra 1500 w/Bose
Kenwood DDX9904S, S_V1_8_0008_1600 Firmware (date 8/2018), flashed 12/2/2018
Maestro RR with default firmware options when flashed, flashed 12/2/2018
GM5+

Any insight would be appreciated,
Jon

Unless your speaker is defective, a volume of 1 should be whisper quiet. Most people mount the speaker in the driver's side underdash, firing toward the footwell of the vehicle. I could see that if you have the speaker pointed toward you, it could definitely sound louder than if you mounted it in the underdash.

Thanks for the response.

Tech support yesterday was pretty sure the chime and turn signal should be coming from the main system, not the additional speaker. That is my question. OnStar comes through primary system, chime and turn signal are coming from the GM5+ speaker.

Where those sounds come from depends on the trim of audio system you have.
  • In a non-amplified vehicle, chimes, turn signals and onstar come through the external speaker.
  • In a Bose vehicle, chimes and turn signals come from the external speaker, and Onstar is generated by the amp, which is why it comes from the vehicle speakers.
  • In a premium bose vehicle, the amplifier generates everything, so all of the things would come from the door speakers.
