I recently installed a new Pioneer head unit into my Subaru WRX. I was looking at the ground wire that comes out of the harness, to ground the head unit, and I had it attached to a screw on the back of the head unit. I have not been happy with the level of audio coming out of the new speakers I installed (MB Quarts) in the front doors. I can crank the head unit to its maximum level, 62 on the volume scale, and it is loud, but it does not distort. I feel I should be able to turn it up to distortion levels at least, before it reaches its maximum volume level. Again, its loud, but feels like it should have a lot more. What could be other causes. Is grounding to the chassis of the head unit itself a bad idea? Could this be the cause of the low volume levels?
