Stock Stereo - what's with the "SCV" ???

IIRC it means "speed compensated volume", but no matter how I set it...low, med, hi...it never sounds any different. Maybe I'm just used to the feature in GM vehicles, where it really cranks up the volume on the highway on the higher settings...

Anybody else figure out how to make it work?

Mine works just fine...

I usually leave it at the medium setting.

Just that the harder you hit the accelerator, the higher the volume goes. the Low setting means it will only increase volume slightly when accelerating, High creats the most drastic change, and wheny uo are in higher RPMS, all of the sudden you'll hear the radio kick up a lot in volume.

I just turned it off. I only noticed it when I would slow down and the music would get quite, started bugging the hell out of me when I would have to turn it up every time I slowed down. I don't think its like the GM version, ours only gets quite, at least that's my experience.

I'm not crazy about ours either..The corvettes radios seem to work a lot better in that area. It would slowly decrease in volume as you slowed down and slowly increase as you speed up...ours just drops or gains 10-15db depending on whether you are speeding up or slowing down...I TURNED IT OFF!!
